When an elderly man (a heartbroken widower) is almost struck down by a car, the young driver responsible for the near-accident is sentenced to community service: helping the old man with his household chores for six months. This heartwarming comedy about two very different men who don't even want to be in the same room together is also the moving story of two lonely spirits who gradually come to know and care about each other. Written by Jeff Baron (Mother's Day, Mr. & Mrs. God), Visiting Mr. Green is a poignant comedy that'll give you both tears and laughter while watching and also leaves a lasting impression. Learn More

The show revolves around one musical theatre fan’s obsession with a fictional show from the 1920s — The Drowsy Chaperone. As he listens to the recording, the characters come to life in his apartment. This is the story of a Broadway actress, Janet Van De Graaf, who wants to marry the debonair Robert Martin and give up her stage career. Janet’s producer, Mr. Feldzie, must stop the wedding because if she quits show business, he’ll lose his job! Further, gangsters threaten Mr. Feldzie since if Janet quits, they lose their investment.
