Buried Child, the powerfully mysterious play that won Sam Shepard a 1979 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, is a darkly comic meditation on the theme of "You can't go home again." The story begins when 20-something Vince decides to bring his girlfriend back to his family's decaying farm. A sweet idea, but there's a hitch: No one "back home" -- neither his folks nor his grandparents -- seems to remember him. Eviscerating Rockwell-ian notions of American rural life, the play oozes with a spookiness that takes a long while to shake off. Buried Child is a bona fide classic masterfully conveying the mystical, cannibalistic pull of family ties even as they unravel. Learn More

George and Ira Gershwin’s 1925 musical comedy hit _Tip-Toes _is receiving its first full staging since its restoration by the Gershwin Trust in 1998. The show includes such great Gershwin standards as “Sweet and Low-Down,” “That Certain Feeling” and “Looking for a Boy.” This charming and delightful show tells the story of three vaudevillians in Palm Beach, Florida at the height of the real estate craze who try to find a millionaire husband for Tip-Toes. This neglected gem has been newly repolished and awaits your discovery!
