Winner of both a Tony and a Pulitzer Prize, Wendy Wasserstein fearlessly borrowed from her own personality when creating the protagonists of plays such as The Heidi Chronicles, Old Money and The Sisters Rosensweig. These characters tended to be like herself -- intelligent, funny, liberal, and immensely accomplished. The heroine of Third, Wasserstein's last work before her untimely death at age 56, is similarly gifted ... but also smug, over-confident and dangerously shallow. Laurie Jameson is a professor at an elite liberal arts college and a steadfast feminist. When one of her students turns in a paper she finds far too good for such a "privileged white male" to have written, she starts a plagiarism investigation that quickly morphs into a review of her own prejudices. In no other play is Wasserstein as witty, as compassionate, or as critical of her own beliefs, as in Third, the capstone to one of the most distinguished careers in Broadway history. Learn More

Evil Dead: The Musical, is based on the cult-classic Sam Raimi movies that starred Bruce Campbell, now with side-splitting music.

Ash (a housewares employee at S-Mart), will have to use his shotgun, a chainsaw, and an incantation from the Necromonicon to get out alive! You’ll howl to numbers like “Look Who’s Evil Now,” “Ode to an Accidental Stabbing,” and “All the Men In My Life Keep Getting Killed By Candarian Demons.”
