Considered by many to be the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off reveals the hilarious backstage antics and drama of a group of small-town actors attempting to perform a dreadful flop called Nothing On. This play-within-a-play is a comedic triumph of slamming doors, falling trousers and flying fish. Written by award-winning English novelist and playwright Michael Frayn (Copenhagen, Democracy), this comedy of errors remains a crowd pleaser more than 30 years after its 1982 debut. It was also turned into a film in 1992 starring Michael Caine, Carol Burnett, Christopher Reeve and John Ritter. Learn More

Music by Cy Coleman

Written by Michael Bennett
Based on the play Two for the Seesaw by William Gibson
Adapted from William Gibson’s play Two for the Seesaw to the musical stage by Cy Coleman (score), Dorothy Fields (lyrics) and Michael Bennett (book), Seesaw received seven Tony® Award nominations (winning for Tommy Tune’s performance and Bennett’s choreography) and ran for a total of 296 performances. Seesaw was a show of firsts and lasts: launching the career of Tommy Tune and highlighting the ﬁnal lyrics of the great Dorothy Fields. Featuring pulsating Cy Coleman melodies (“It’s Not Where You Start, It’s Where You Finish”) and with 1970 era New York as the background, Seesaw tells the tale of a slightly square, not–quite single lawyer from the Midwest and an off-kilter would-be-dancer from the Bronx.
Seesaw will star Eydie Alyson as Gittel, Roger Befeler as Jerry and Steven Hack as David. The ensemble will feature MTG members Danny Bolero, Ron Christopher Jones and Melissa Lyons with guest artists Kari Lee Cartwright, Robyn Cohen, Lindsay MacDonald, Lowe Taylor and Jake Wesley Stewart. Seesaw will be directed and choreographed by Todd Nielsen with musical direction by Dean Mora and is produced for MTG by Eileen Barnett and Pamela Hamill.
