Tabard Theatre Company kicks off its 14th season with this intimate revue that uses timeless songs from early musicals to explore the excitement of young love and the confusion of growing up (or is it the other way around?). Hailed for possessing "[m]ore lilting originality and heart-felt emotion than any big Broadway musical" (The Washington Star), this bold, crowd-pleasing show takes a winsome cast of three through the maze of modern relationships. From tender ballads to hysterical husband-hunting laments, from wry comments on trendy marriages to shouting-from-the-rooftop celebration, Starting Here, Starting Now is a love letter to early Broadway from Maltby & Shire, one of the most respected teams in contemporary musical theatre.

This midsummer’s night, July 16 to be exact, marks the opening of Shakespeare Three Ways — an evening of comedy inspired by the many aspects of Shakespeare, but in more modern language.
Get thee to the theatre! The Theatre on San Pedro Square plays host to Three of a Perfect Pair Theatre Troupe who will perform three one-act plays.
“This is an evening that is perfect for families at an affordable ticket price,” said Craig Engen, Managing Director, playwright and performer.
The characters are recognizable archetypes of aspects of our own natures: noble, comic, twisted, exploitive — and all too human. The three one-acts are A Debt By Any Other Name is based upon Shakespearean insults, Love is Blind a love triangle and deals with Shakespeare’s language of love and lust, and Vaulting Ambition, which is based on the machinations of Shakespeare’s villains in which multiple characters are try to take the crown in a maze of comic intrigue.
The first two pieces, A Debt by Any Other Name and Love is Blind, are directed by Linnea George and the third, Vaulting Ambition, is directed by Estelle Piper.
“I play the Rival Baron,” said Piper, who is also Artistic Director of Three of a Perfect Pair Theatre Troupe. “Yes, he’s a male character who’s sort of a 15th-century ‘wild and crazy guy’ whose laughably mangled English gets him into all kinds of scrapes.”
“Relationships and money are two grand themes that we all could use a little advice on,” noted George about A Debt By Any Other Name. Regarding Love Is Blind she added that “during our rehearsal process, we talked about the many reasons and ways people fall in love.”
