Don't talk to the Actors
by Tom Dudzick
September 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 28 October 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11
The best laid plans go awry when the cast and crew of a Broadway-bound play resort to manipulation, diva-like behavior, and chaotic abandon to get what they want. Fledgling playwright Jerry Przpezniak and his fiancé are a couple of Buffalo greenhorns suddenly swept up in the whirlwind of New York’s theater scene when Jerry’s play is optioned for the big money, ego-driven world of Broadway.
It’s a young playwright’s dream, or is it his nightmare? Everyone involved knows exactly what the play needs in order to make it a hit. The lead actor wants his lines rewritten. The lead actress would be more comfortable with more jokes, and maybe a song. If only Jerry had listened when the director said, “don’t talk to the actors”!

Nightfall - an evening of Edgar Allan Poe
by Eric Coble
October 24 & 25
Edgar Allan Poe stands alone in the flickering darkness of his mind, trying desperately to convince himself -- and us -- that he's not mad. The spell he weaves brings us a highly theatrical adaptation of four tales Poe himself considered his best: "The Raven," "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Pit and the Pendulum," and "The Tell-Tale Heart." Enter the world of Poe and check your heartbeat at the door.
