It's 1960 and Parisian lothario Bernard has it good. His three fiancées, one French, one German and one American, are all beautiful airline hostesses with frequent -- but never overlapping -- layovers in Paris. And thanks to Bernard's faithful maid, who swaps out the photographs in his apartment according to schedule, the women will never find out about each other. That is until a new, faster Boeing jet throws the airline schedules out of whack and Bernard finds himself with all three women on his hands at once. Throw in Bernard's friend, who's hilariously bad at keeping all the lies straight, and the whole perfect setup might just fall apart. This slapstick farce from French playwright Marc Camoletti has been performed in London and on Broadway and was made into a 1965 film starring Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis. Learn More

Directed by David Colwell
A Broadway hit, this taut thriller is a tight rope walk from one suspenseful moment to the next. Susy Hendrix, an independent blind woman, unwittingly comes into possession of a doll filled with drugs. Three ex-cons attempt to retrieve the doll by deceiving Susy into thinking that her husband has been implicated in a murder and finding the doll is the key to proving his innocence. Their deception unravels as they are unprepared for the heightened intuition that takes over when sight is taken out the equation. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues leading to a heart-stopping finale.
