Description

Noises Off – Back by Popular Demand!

By Michael Frayn

Directed by Julia Rodriguez-Elliott and Geoff Elliott

January 6 – January 15, 2012

(No Previews)

CRITICS CHOICE – LA Times

“Expect to be laughing so hard it hurts.” -StageHappenings

Chaos reigns both onstage and off in Michael Frayn’s joyfully out-of-control British farce. Under-rehearsed and over-worked, with a penchant for drama more personal than professional, a bumbling troupe of veteran thespians ready themselves for the world premiere of a new play with the auspicious title Nothing On. In the process they bring the house down – quite literally.

Antony and Cleopatra

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Julia Rodriguez-Elliott and Geoff Elliott

March 3 – May 13, 2012

(Previews begin February 25)      

Two towering figures with spirits as expansive as planets are caught in each other’s orbit, unable to break away from an irresistible yet deadly embrace. As the tectonic plates of world politics shift and forces align determined to destroy them, legendary lovers Antony and Cleopatra refuse to surrender an unquenchable lust for life in William Shakespeare’s breathless tragedy.

The Illusion

By Pierre Corneille

Adapted by Tony Kushner

Director to be Announced

March 17 – May 19, 2012

(Previews begin March 10)

Tony Kushner (Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Angels In America) triumphantly exhumes this fascinating, theatrical fairy-tale first told by French classical dramatist Pierre Corneille in 1639. A father, on a mission to reunite with his estranged son, enlists the services of a powerful sorcerer who conjures up provocative images from the young man’s life. Witty and profound, timely and transcendent, comic and moving, The Illusion is the essence of living theatre.

The Bungler

By Moliere

Translated by Richard Wilbur

Directed by Julia Rodriguez-Elliott

April 7 – May 27, 2012

(Previews begin March 31)

The Bungler is comic genius. Moliere’s first romp written in verse, and one of the greatest hits of his lifetime. This rarely produced gem is a non-stop cavalcade of wily servants, dim-witted young lovers and avaricious old men on a bumbling, tumbling, tackling, wild and woolly ride. Adjust your seats to the upright and foward position, strap yourselves in, and get ready to laugh!

Shows are suitable for ages 12 and over.
