A darkly cynical drama about party compromise, complete with last-minute backroom deal-making, this revival of Gore Vidal's 1960 hit The Best Man is as timely and topical as ever. This inside look at the double- and triple-crossing that occurs during a presidential race tells the story of two men battling for the nomination, both of whom must choose between mudslinging and campaigning on the issues. The show's original Broadway production was nominated for six Tony Awards. Filled with Vidal's trademark verbal fire, this seminal political work, featuring Artistic Director Mark A. Rhea and Keegan company member Colin A. Smith, resonates as an exploration of how political and personal agendas can change the destiny of a nation. Learn More

The quintessential story of friendship and trust, Steel Magnolias serves up a southern slice of life that’s as warm and comforting as sweet potato pie! In the world of Truvy’s local-homegrown beauty salon, six very different women come together to share laughter, secrets, fears and friendship. From weddings to divorces, babies to funerals, new beginnings to happy endings, they share each moment in their lives with grace, determination, and perfectly coiffed hair.
