In this exciting play by Lee Hall, adapted from the Oscar winning screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard, we get to witness a version of what might have been. Did Shakespeare have writer’s block from time to time? Did he need a muse to write his famous tragedy Romeo and Juliet? Hall’s version follows the same story of Shakespeare meeting and falling in love with an aristocratic woman named Viola who wishes she could be an actor, and transforms it for the stage, just as Shakespeare did with stories in his day. It is funny, clever, filled with references to Shakespeare’s work, and a delight for theatre goers of all ages.

In this contemporary age when couples befriend other couples to find family companions with common ground, Dinner with Friends seeks to explore what happens when one of these romantic pairs breaks down, and the waves that can make across households. Gabe and Karen, collaborators in the industry of food literature and a husband-and-wife duo that boast a relationship to aspire to, maintain a constant closeness with another couple in their life, Tom and Beth. Tom, who has known Gabe since college, and Beth, a friend of Karen’s, were set up years ago by Gabe and Karen on a trip to Martha’s Vineyard that they all took together. When, in the first scene, Beth informs Gabe and Karen over dinner that Tom is leaving her, a chain of events is set off that may impact more than one kind of love.

JUNE 2 – 18
Based on the unbelievable true story of one of the most famous con artists in history, Frank Abagnale Jr., Catch Me If You Can is a rousing musical set in the 1960s. We begin as Frank is captured by Agent Carl Hanratty, after years of pursuit. Frank, however, thinks the audience deserves to hear his version of the truth, and narrates his life as a hip, dance-heavy variety television show. We see Frank, as a teenager, run away from his unhappy home to live a life of great adventure, conning people by assuming a multitude of identities: airplane pilot, doctor, and lawyer, to name a few. A fast, rollicking musical by the creative team behind Hairspray, Catch Me If You Can tells the tale of an ingenious, yet lonely, boy looking for his place in the world.
