"Mt Favorite Year"
Directed by: Jane & Cy Hoffman
Music Director: Loretta Robinson
Performances: February 21 – March 16, 2014
This musical comedy by the award-winning musical team of Ahrens and Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, Ragtime, Seussical, Once on this Island) is based on the successful movie of the same name. Benjy Stone is a first-year writer on the “King Kaiser Comedy Cavalcade” TV show (it smacks of Your Show of Shows starring Sid Caesar). The guest host for this week is Allan Swann, an over-the hill drunken, swashbuckling movie star. Benjy writes the script for a 3 Musketeers sketch, is ordered to keep Swann sober and under control, accompanies Swann to dinner at his mother’s Brooklyn apartment, and ultimately convinces Swann to reconcile with his estranged daughter. (oh – and Benjy gets the show’s female assistant as his girlfriend). Much of the comedy results from a behind-the-scenes look at the preparations for the TV show. It features a hilarious script and superb music.

|"Dancing at Lughanasa"|
byL Brian Friel
Directed by: Leslee Richards
April 4th - 27th 2014
|Dancing At Lughnasa is a play about the courage of 5 sisters in 1936 Ballybeg, Ireland as told through the memory of Michael. Faced with no meaningful work, no likelihood of a husband, and only themselves to depend upon, they still manage to find joy and humor in their lives. 1936 Ireland was a time of extreme poverty, due to the 1929 economic crash. An entire generation of young men had been lost in WW1 and very few women would find husbands. The youngest sister has had a son out of wedlock and he is now age 7. Lughnasa is the Irish Harvest Festival which always happens in late August.|
