Amadeus (May 3-19, 2007)

A Drama by Peter Schaffer

“An iridescent triumph … of complexity of thought, emotion and dramatic power.” – N. Y. Post

This provocative play revolves around a confrontation between mediocrity and genius. Shaffer has woven a tale of breathtaking dramatic power. Antonio Salieri is the established court composer in the court of Austrian Emperor Joseph II. Enter young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, perhaps the greatest musical genius of all time. God-fearing Salieri sets out to destroy the foul-mouthed, graceless libertine, Mozart. The greatest tragedy lies in Salieri’s realization that there is no connection between virtue and talent.

Deathtrap (March 8-24, 2007)

A Thriller by Ira Levin

“It is a classic thriller, a genre with a style, a manner and an audience of its own.” – N. Y. Post

Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a dry spell that has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from Clifford, a student in the seminar he has been conducting – a thriller that has the potential of being a Broadway hit. Sidney and his wife Myra come up with an almost unthinkable scheme. But soon after Clifford arrives, it becomes clear that their plan is not to be as simple as it seems.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (January 11-27, 2007)

A Comedy/Drama adapted by Dale Wasserman from the novel by Ken Kesey

“Funny, touching and exciting – the stuff of great theatre!” – N.Y. Daily News

McMurphy is a charming, devil-may-care rogue who contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather than work in a prison. He takes over the yard, and he accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do for twelve years – a presumed deaf and dumb man talks and others move out of introversion. He stages a revolt and makes demands on behalf of the patients. This, he suddenly learns, is a mistake. His charm does not work on the head nurse, however, but only aggravates her antagonism towards him.
