A world premiere! Carver Washington, a brilliant, young beekeeper from the Bronx finds his only respite from caring for his little sister and his housebound grandmother by escaping to his oasis on his building’s roof. Rooftop visits from Devora, a kindred spirit fresh out of Yale who’s setting up a kibbutz in the neighborhood, lead them to share their dreams, anxieties and hopes during a
time of colony collapse, both for bees and humans. With the city far below, they wonder together what forgiveness might look like in the 21st century.
Music and Lyrics by Jerry Herman
Concepts by Larry Alford, Wayne Cilento and Jerry Herman
Directed and Choreographed by Ellen Isom

Jerry’s Girls, the Broadway musical revue, is a sparkling journey through Herman’s musical catalogue. With its abundance of beloved and celebratory pleasures, this is a refreshing tonic for lifting our spirits and celebrating one of Broadway’s greatest Jewish composers. In song after song, in Broadway hits like “Mame,” “La Cage aux Folles” and “Hello, Dolly!,” Herman has made it his goal in life to send people out of a theatre humming his tunes and there’s no denying that his relentlessly upbeat and melodic songs do the trick. This tribute to the song catalogue of Jerry Herman is sure to leave you smiling, and with a song in your heart.

Inspired by the playwright’s youthful experience as a staff writer on Sid Caesar’s “Your Show of Shows,” this Neil Simon favorite depicts the harried writing staff as they frantically scramble to top each other with gags while competing for the attention of star madman, Max Prince. Filled with nostalgia, classic Catskills humor and colorful characters, Laughter on the 23rd Floor is bound to have you… well… laughing.

When two strangers meet by letter during World War II, a love story begins. U.S. Army Captain Jack Ludwig, a military doctor stationed in Oregon, begins writing to Louise Rabiner, an aspiring actress and dancer in New York City, hoping to meet her someday if the war will allow. But as the war continues, it threatens to end their relationship before it even starts. Tony Award-winning playwright Ken Ludwig (Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery, Lend Me a Tenor) tells the joyous, heartwarming story of his grandparents’ courtship during World War II and the results are anything but expected.
Content warning: Dear Jack, Dear Louise is set against the backdrop of World War II. There are discussions of war and concentration camps as well as the sounds of bombs and gunshots.
