Tribute artist Peter Mac has been acclaimed since 2002 for his remarkable portrayals of Judy Garland. Mac now celebrates Halloween with the legendary star of stage and screen. When Garland encounters Endora and Uncle Arthur from Bewitched and the witchy duo need to escape Salem -- and fast -- campy hijinks naturally ensue. Will Salem -- or Halloween -- ever be the same? Mac, a self-described "male actress," is known for his seriously fun and loving tributes to Garland, and was hailed for his performance by two of her most famous costars: Mickey Rooney and Margaret O'Brien. This hilarious show features both Garland's standards and songs of the spooky Halloween variety. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
“What would this look like in a society as heterogonous, and as destabilized by radical societal changes, as ours is today? Sarah Benson investigates in her innovative and often deeply moving take on Ajax by Sophocles, in a brand new translation by Charles Connaghan.” —Blast Magazine
“We first see Ajax mid-massacre, positively reveling in the bloodbath, and Benson pulls no punches, opening the nondescript mess hall to a scene of slaughterhouse gore.” —TheaterMania
In a new translation by Charles Connaghan
Directed by Sarah Benson
A poignant examination of how war affects the mind of a solider, Sophocles’s tragedy speaks directly to our times. Second only to Achilles in greatness and strength, the legendary Greek warrior Ajax struggles under the weight of psychological and physical injuries, trying to maintain his dignity, identity, and honor. Director Sarah Benson brings the voice of the community to this production, exploring the relationships between soldiers and civilians.
