Nothing could prepare Cass for the dirty little secret her husband's been keeping in his sweater drawer. Shocked by what she discovers, Cass abandons her husband and her run-of-the-mill life for a fresh start in the honeymoon capital of the world. Niagara Falls offers up a treasure trove of bizarre characters who accompany Cass on a journey of discovery that's utterly absurd and desperately funny. Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole, Fuddy Meers), the play debuted in 2000 with Sarah Jessica Parker as Cass, and was hailed by The New York Times as "exceedingly whimsical and playfully wicked."

We were sorry we didn't really like this interpretation of Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice. It was an intriguing idea, but we thought the costumes were a little 'basic' and the acting quite variable - some excellent but some below par, and the changing of sets quite amateurish. The music as good, however.
