Forget what you learned in first grade: '1+1' is one of the most difficult problems on the planet, often taking a lifetime to solve. Just ask the characters in Happily Ever After, the dazzling new play by Cristina Colmena. Three couples of different ages, representing a lifetime of romantic struggles, try to puzzle out what it means to be "together." There are the young lovebirds connected by a powerful attraction yet destined to part; the cynical middle-aged "one night standers" failing to act on a promising encounter; and, finally, an older couple keeping up appearances despite their profound unhappiness. Hanna Bondarewska, artistic director and founder of the Ambassador Theater, directs the world premiere production of this compelling dark comedy. Learn More

An urban re-imagining of The Scarlet Letter that was skillfully acted by every member of the ensemble. Some of the themes are adult and intense, but such is the world we live in. The theatre is small and intimate so there are no bad seats. And you're so close that you're practically part of the show. I'm looking forward to future productions from this group.

Riveting performances by all - this is a provocative drama of human tragedy and exploitation. Done on a shoestring budget, the small theater staging is minimal- but the story and the performances are absolutely captivating and engaging. Thanks!
