Merge a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta with the gothic world of illustrator Edward Gorey and you get some sense of the silly, spooky atmosphere of Ruddigore. A witch's curse, a hall of talking portraits and a legion of sadistic ghosts make for a delightfully ghoulish romp. Though not as well known as The Pirates of Penzance or The Mikado, Ruddigore showcases some of Sullivan's finest melodies and Gilbert's nimblest lyrics. The lightning speed and ridiculous rhymes of "My Eyes Are Fully Open" make even "I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General" seem plodding and slow-witted by comparison. Learn More

The director and 16 actors in "Requiem For A Heavyweight," along with the old commercials, did an outstanding job transporting the audience back into the twilight zone of the fifties with this play. The omniscient Rod Serling would have been proud of the production.
