Alphabetical Order - The New York premiere of Michael Frayn's Olivier-winning comedy about a British newspaper on the brink of disaster and the complicated love lives of the staff. The new assistant might bring order to the chaos. She also might ruin everyone's life.

Angels in America - Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning play is set during the first wave of the AIDS epidemic. Characters include lawyer Roy Cohn; an African- American male nurse; a Mormon housewife; a prophecy-bearing angel; the ghost of Ethel Rosenberg -- all played by a company of eight actors. The play’s two parts perform in repertory.

Capsule 33 - Milo, a resident of the famed Nakagin Capsule Tower in Tokyo, is hailed as the world's first example of "recyclable housing," which is on the brink of being imploded (both in the play and in real life). Despite the impending destruction of the tower, Milo (along with his rubber ducky, Fumio) refuses to leave. In this theatrical event written and performed by Thaddeus Phillips, we witness his final day in the tower while taking a new look at architecture, human habitat, and a sustainable society.

The Deep Throat Sex Scandal - The bizarre journey from the creation of the legendary adult movie starring Linda Lovelace and Harry Reems through the raids, arrests and the banning of the film, to the political fallout of the ensuing courtroom drama.

Fuhgeddaboudit! - What happens when a nice Italian boy falls in love with a sweet Jewish girl?  A hilarious romantic comedy about  two college kids from Brooklyn who fall in love. But when her mother finds out...she has a heart attack...Oy vey!

Killers and Other Family - In Lucy Thurber’s play, just when Elizabeth thinks she’s finally escaped her previous life, that life comes crashing back when her brother and his friend show up, on the run, demanding she hide them. Their arrive forces her to confront her past, pushing her into a waking nightmare in which fears and memories become all to real.

Orange, Hat & Grace - In a cabin in the woods, aging Orange finds her orderly life upended by a feral suitor and the reappearance of a figure from her past whose come home for a final visit. Equal parts American Gothic and unlikely romance, Orange, Hat & Grace is a funny, fierce and provocative inquiry into our relationship with the natural world.

The Sneeze - Michael Frayn’s comic adaptation of Chekhov’s vaudevillian vignettes bounds across town and country with an improbable duel, a mismanaged marriage proposal, and a life-shattering sneeze along the way.

Tell Hell I Ain't Comin' - On a Sunday morning,  Allgood, an ordinary man, goes to hell, and terror grips him -- a terror that would take him into torments played over and over like a broken record. Yet even in this place of unspeakable sorrow, his faith in God is unwavering, and when asked by Satan, to deny God, Allgood, boldly replies, “I don’t know why I am here, but I know that God loves me with an everlasting love.”  Maybe Allgood’s story is a lesson in life, but more so a lesson in Eternity.
