Abraham Lincoln's Big, Gay Dance Party - A fourth-grade Christmas pageant in Abraham Lincoln's rural Illinois hometown sets off a firestorm of controversy when it calls into question Abraham Lincoln's sexuality. Each of the play's three acts lets the audience see the story through a different character's viewpoint - and at each performance the audience decides in which order the acts are performed, creating a Rubik's-like theatrical event. Finally, a truly democratic theatergoing experience!

Another American: Asking and Telling - With original direction by Joe Mantello, Another American: Asking and Telling takes the audience on a national tour of sexual politics, the American military, sanctioned discrimination, and its human fallout. Distilled from over one hundred and fifty interviews with straight, gay and lesbian military personnel (from World War II veterans to anonymous service members serving today), in addition to civil rights lawyers, federal judges, professors and politicians, Wolf portrays a community of characters struggling with the government's ban on gays and lesbians in the armed forces.

Love Humiliation Karaoke - In this solo show, Enzo Lombard plays over 15 characters - several at the same time - in six hilarious episodes, each set in a different city.

Puppetry of the Penis - Make no mistake, there are no sock puppets in this show! These puppeteers stretch themselves to the limit presenting the ancient Australian art of genital origami. Puppetry of the Penis leaves audiences gasping with more than 40 hilarious installations including The Pelican, The Loch Ness Monster, and their signature creation, The Hamburger.

Secrets of the Trade - In show business, it's all about who you know. Or is it Andy Lipman, a smart, ambitious kid from Long Island, dreams of a career on Broadway and hopes that his idol, theater legend Martin Kerner, can give it to him. Will Kerner open Andy's door to success, or will their complicated relationship force him to question a life in the theater?

Summer Shorts 4 - Summer Shorts returns for another summer of new American one-acts featuring original plays by the country's top playwrights. Representing some of today's best writing, directing and acting talents, Summer Shorts celebrates theatre, summer and the short form. The festival's two separate series offer a diverse range of voices, styles, and subject matter.

Visionaries - A one-act play by Vivian Vertes that invites audiences to spend some time with the hellish Principal (Larry Greenbush), do-gooder Teacher (Janet Dunson), and seasoned Secretary (Mimi Anderson) at P.S.168, where things aren't quite right. Can they possibly get any better?

Wife to James Whelan - Set in a small Irish town, this heart-wrenching story of star-crossed lovers follows James, an ambitious young man determined to make his mark and Nan, who wants him to be content with what he has. When James learns he's won a prize job in Dublin he asks Nan to wait for him, but she'll "make no promise." Seven years later, James is the sole proprietor of a thriving new bus service and there are three women might be 'Wife to James Whelan': Nan; Kate, his true friend, and Nora, who appeals to his ambition.
