Take in two of Charles Busch's satires with this outrageous double bill. Vampire Lesbians of Sodom follows a pair of bloodsuckers who have a rivalry dating back 2,000 years. Their immortal catfight rages through time with a dramatic flair-up during Hollywood's silent movie era when the two vampires become competing film stars. Set in London's swinging mod scene of the '60s, Sleeping Beauty, or Coma is a groovy adaptation of the fairy tale. High fashion, a wacky fairy godmother and bad LSD lead to a 20-year coma only a prince can break. Learn More

A thought-provoking text, expertly interpreted, BooKKeepers transports us to immediate pre-war Berlin, in the grip of Nazi rule. After the war, the surviving characters are given a chance to account for their actions, and to pass their story on to the next generation. You cannot watch this play without reflecting on parallels of opporession and control throughout the world and through time (including our own country and time).
K (ostensibly Kafka), with his emotions and moods, Madame Paulus, with her ironic delivery ("I was no more of a Nazi than the next woman."), and Madame Paulus' younger self in Berlin, with her airs and her ambivalence, are stand-outs in a strong cast.

This was an amazing play! Dark, thought provoking and well played. The whole cast was deep and well rehearsed, you feel drawn in immediately! The timely excerpts from the penal colony are wonderful and the "officer" is fantastically portrayed!
Featuring: Charles Keen, Martha Luehrmann, Nastassia Maltsava, Shawn Morgan, Nathan Putnam, Andrea Satin, Alejandro Torres, Ket Watters and Christopher Weddle.
