Nurse Ratched is a character of such exquisite evil that she beat out Michael Corleone, Freddy Krueger, HAL 9000 and the Shark from Jaws in an AFI ranking of "100 Greatest Villains." Despite all her power, she meets her match in Randle P. McMurphy, the free-spirited patient who waltzes into her psych unit and threatens to upend her world in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Watching these two -- the strict authoritarian and the carefree rabble-rouser -- engage in a high-stakes game of control is one the chief pleasures of this Tony-winning stage adaptation of Ken Kesey's legendary novel (which also inspired the legendary, Oscar-winning movie). Stacy Holmes directs this tough, touching and tragic American classic now at the Attic Community Theater. Learn More

See the Reduced Shakespeare Company "reduce" all (okay, most) of Western Literature from Beowulf to War and Peace into 110 minutes of sidesplitting hilarity. Learn about all the Great Books you should have read in high school (but probably didn't). Wish Tennyson was tinier? Swift swifter? Then this show of "intellectual vaudeville" (NY Times) is for you! See it now in its Orange Country premiere prior to a full summer's run at the prestigious Kennedy Center in Washington DC. Bring family and friends, as this is the perfect group event.
