In this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama set in the Bronx in 1964, Sister Aloysius, the principal of a Catholic school in the borough, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects that young newcomer Father Flynn has sexually abused the school's only black student. As she wrestles with her doubts, she questions an idealistic young nun and the mother of the alleged victim, perhaps changing them forever. The 2008 film adaptation, starring Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, Viola Davis and Philip Seymour Hoffman, earned Oscar nominations for all four actors. This gripping drama about suspicion, scandal and the elusiveness of moral certainty stars Karen MacDonald. Learn More

Fine performance by accomplished actresses and actors. The set was a bit flimsy and uninspired but the wit of Wilde shined through. Wouldn't hesitate to return to the Footlight Club. Seats were centrally located, though they are not raked steeply enough to prevent poor sight lines, especially when the bozo in the seat in front of me wore his hat throughout the performance.

Insider Trading and blackmail: Robert Chiltern is a rising politician with a bright future, an activist wife, a marriageable sister, and a charming best friend. He has the perfect life – until he is confronted with proof of the shocking indiscretion that started his meteoric rise by Mrs. Cheveley. Oscar Wilde’s classic tale of pride, politics, and posh society rings delights as much today as it did when it premiered in 1895.
