  • Performances August 9- August 25 2024
The cultural touchstone that is THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED) was born when three inspired, charismatic comics, having honed their pass-the-hat act at Renaissance fairs, premiered their preposterous masterwork at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1987. It quickly became a worldwide phenomenon, earning the title of London’s longest-running comedy after a decade at the Criterion Theatre. THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED) is one of the world’s most frequently produced plays and has been translated into several dozen languages. Featured are all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays, meant to be performed in 97 minutes, by three actors. Fast paced, witty, and physical, it’s full of laughter for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike. The original version was followed by the 2010 REVISED version, and this latest REVISED AGAIN version includes changes that celebrate and encourage greater diversity and inclusivity in today’s theater!
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), [Revised], [again] will run August 9 through August 25, 2024.
Tickets: $18 ahead of time, $20 at the door, with flex passes of 6 tickets to be used in any combination for $102.

Drew Prep School for Boys is a highly respected institution dedicated to helping its’ students grow into “strong, ethical black men.” But what happens when Pharus does not fit the mold for a typical “Drew man?” Pharus is different from his peers, and his effeminate nature constantly sets him apart. Though he may be the leader and most talented member of Drew’s renowned gospel choir, he struggles to gain their acceptance and respect. Choir Boy, written by the Academy Award-winning writer of Moonlight, Tarell Alvin McCraney, is a moving story of sexuality, race, hope, gospel music, and a young gay man finding his voice.

Top Girls

Top Girls

  • By: Caryl Churchill
  • Directed by: Annabelle Dragas Xanthos
  • Performances February 28 - March 26, 2025
Marlene has been promoted to managing director of a London employment agency and is celebrating. The symbolic luncheon is attended by women in legend or history who offer perspectives on maternity and ambition. In a time warp, these ladies are also her co-workers, clients, and relatives. Marlene, like her famous guests, has had to pay a price to ascend from proletarian roots to the executive suite: she has become, figuratively speaking, a male oppressor, and even coaches female clients on adopting odious male traits. Marlene has also abandoned her illegitimate and dull-witted daughter. Her emotional and sexual life has become as barren as Lady Macbeth's.
Top Girls will run February 28 through March 26, 2025.
Tickets: $18 ahead of time, $20 at the door, with flex passes of 6 tickets to be used in any combination for $102.
