Sometimes "livin' large" is no kind of living at all. At least not when you're tipping the scales at 600 pounds like Charlie, the moving (but nearly immobile) protagonist of The Whale. Since the death of his boyfriend, Charlie has confined himself to his small Idaho apartment and is eating himself to death. His only friend, a nurse, nearly kills him with kindness while his only acquaintance, a troubled young missionary, is determined to rescue his soul. Unwilling to seek medical treatment despite his rapidly declining health, Charlie instead attempts to reconnect with the teenage daughter he hasn't seen in 15 years. Obie Award-winning playwright Samuel D. Hunter (A Bright New Boise) wrote this humorous and devastating drama that won the 2013 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Play. Learn More

This was one of the most enjoyable evenings at the theatre that I have had in a while. Good energy, good acting. Everything was done with great imagination, and I loved the intimate experience of the studio theatre. I would highly recommend this production--I am thinking of going again this weekend!
Called one of Shakespeare's best works, Much Ado About Nothing casts the serious themes of love, fear of commitment, and jealousy in a sexy, side-splitting comedy about two very different courtships. In this faithful adaptation by director, Daniel Morris, all characters are portrayed by 5 actors, creating a tour de force of quick changes, gender-bending and unexpected surprises.
