A struggling suburban mom tries to keep it together and get back everything she's lost -- including her daughter -- in the new comedy-drama Bethany. With the reality of the economic meltdown hitting close to home and everything seemingly hinged on one big sale, Crystal must push her limits and ask herself just how far she's willing to go during desperate times. Written by award-winning playwright Laura Marks (Mine, Gather at the River), Bethany premiered off-Broadway to great acclaim. Learn More

The Prisoner of Second Avenue
by Neil Simon
Directed by Warner Shook
_A comic portrait of urban angst spiked with Simon’s trademark zingers.
Heat waves. Garbage strikes. Noisy neighbors. Burglars. No place dishes it out quite like New York City, and with his job hanging by a thread, Mel Edison is in no mood to grin and bear it. Sparkling with Simon’s usual wit and fueled by a still-resonant anger at the dehumanizing effects of modern city life, this comedy classic pits Mel and his steadfast wife Edna against an assault by 1970s Manhattan—and it’s anybody’s guess who’ll win.
