A runaway hit at TheatreWorks' New Works Festival, The Great Pretender now receives a fully staged world premiere at the Lucie Stern Theatre. In this comic tale of friendship, love and letting go, a children's TV host is consumed with the passing of a cherished puppeteer. Evoking the small-screen shows that shaped the childhoods of so many, The Great Pretender moves beyond the painted sets and colored lights to discover that people (as well as puppets) need a helping hand. TheatreWorks kick-starts its new season with this bittersweet comedy from David West Read (The Performers). Learn More

This was my first time to the Theatre on San Pedro Square. It was a nice theatre. You take two sets of steep stairs to get to the theatre. There is an elevator if your not in to taking the stairs. At the top it opens to a big room. The sound and lighting was very good. There are comfortable lounge seats which make up the rows. Some have small tables by them to set your drinks, food, etc. The staff was nice and made you happy you were there.
A Taffeta Wedding was a wonderful play. I was born in the year 1964, which the play is set. But I knew most of the songs they sang. My folks who I brought also enjoyed the trip down memory lane. I might have been conceived during one of these songs... The cast was great. They harmonized well together. Overall the night was swell... Thanks GoldStar!!!

It’s 1964 & wedding bells are ringing for our favorite singing sisters, The Taffetas — and you’re invited as they and their crooning beaus, The Cardigans, swoon and sway to favorite ’50s and ’60s pop tunes like “Who’s Sorry Now,” “Sincerely” and “Locomotion” in this nostalgically fun premiere musical about gals and the guys they love, written by Rick Lewis, creator of The Taffetas and A Taffeta Christmas.
