Whale Fall is what happens at dinner when the siblings are finally together processing the death of their mom and her impact on their lives.
Moon Over Buffalo
In the madcap comedy tradition of Lend Me A Tenor, Ken Ludwig’s Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950s. At the moment, they’re playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with 5 actors. Down on their luck doesn’t begin to describe it.
But the great movie director Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he just might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Naked ambition takes over as George and Charlotte do everything in their power to make Capra love them.
Moon Over Buffalo marked Carol Burnett’s triumphant return to Broadway after 30 years, and she and her co-star Phil Bosco (both nominated for Tonys for their roles) were followed on Broadway by Lynn Redgrave and Robert Goulet, then in London by Joan Collins and Frank Langella. Since that time, there has never been a season of theater in the world without Moon Over Buffalo.
Los Angeles Doesn't Exist
Los Angeles doesn't exist because it's not the facade of what Los Angeles is that makes it inspiring, but rather the hard work and honest lives of everyday people. Who descend from all different sides of the Earth and make this city palpably alive. This city is not just a city, it's an entity. Living and breathing. Not just the tourist stop we've been fed to believe but moreover a creative communes. Made of Angelinos and foreigners in pursuit of fulfilling their purpose in one of the most conducive cities of individuality. And that is why Los Angeles doesn't exist.

Adaptation by Helen Edmundson from Leo Tolstoy's novel
Directed by Josh Horowitz
Married to a provincial governor, the punctilious Alexei Karenin, Anna revolts against her life of compromise when she meets the charming officer Count Vronsky. She embarks on a scandalous affair, which completely destroys her family life and brings her to the brink of destruction. Interspersed with Anna’s tragic downfall is the story of Levin, an idealistic landowner striving to find meaning in his life – a character often seen as a self-portrait of Tolstoy himself. Edmundson's adaptation illuminates the story's grand pattern: how the adulterous Anna travels towards disintegration and death, while the young landowner, Levin, travels toward maturity and a sense of wholeness.

February 9-14 Mary Stuart
A conflict raged for 20 years between Elizabeth of England and Mary Stuart, during which the destiny of England as an independent nation of free people trembled in the balance. Elizabeth struggles over whether to keep her cousin Mary alive or to execute her. Each course seems to be of equal peril. The play is by turns a testament to human bravery and personal dignity; a conflict between personal and political responsibility; a struggle between womanhood and statesmanship, where Mary triumphs at one and Elizabeth the other.
