The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good,
collars were up, and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room.
Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer’s sparkling new score
does for the ‘80s what Hairspray did for the ‘60s.
Just say yes to the most romantic musical in 20 years.

The winner of six TONY Awards including Best Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie was the 2002
season’s most awarded new show on Broadway! Based on the 1967 Academy Award-winning film,
Thoroughly Modern Millie takes you back to the height of the Jazz Age in New York City,
when “moderns”—including a flapper named Millie Dillmount—were bobbing their hair,
raising their hemlines, entering the workforce, and rewriting the rules of love.
This high-spirited musical romp is a delightful valentine to the long-standing spirit of
New York City and the people who seek to discover themselves there.

A cascade of comedy and a solid hit on Broadway, this affair takes place inside an American
embassy behind the Iron Curtain. An American tourist, a caterer by trade,
and his wife and daughter rush into the embassy two steps ahead of the police who suspect
them of spying and picture taking. It's not much of a refuge, for the ambassador is absent
and his son, now in charge, has been expelled from a dozen countries and
the continent of Africa. Nevertheless, they carefully and frantically plot their escape,
and the ambassador's son and the caterer's daughter even have time to fall in love.

Art of Murder - In a remote estate in the countryside of Connecticut, Jack Brooks,
one of the most accomplished and eccentric painters of his generation,
awaits the imminent arrival of his art dealer. But the visit is not a standard one,
for Jack feels wronged, and he is intending to kill the man. As Jack lays out his intentions
for the evening, his wife, Annie, calmly paints. She is reluctant to go along with the plan,
until Jack's threat of violence convinces her otherwise. Harried and annoyed,
Vincent, Jack's flamboyant art dealer, arrives.
Will Jack carry out his plan? Will Annie help him? Or is something else going on?

The Book of Murder - Henry T. Aythecliff, a much married and once successful writer,
now heavily in debt, summons his three ex-wives to his mansion, his plan being to extort a
sizable amount of money from each of them. He has a secret meeting with each in turn,
and when he is discovered murdered, the clues indicate that each of his wives
(including his present one) could have done the deed—and had a strong motive to do so.
Patiently and resourcefully, the young detective assigned to the case sifts through
the ingeniously devised evidence—until, in a surprise ending, the truth is finally revealed,
and the guilty party is apprehended.

Set during a live broadcast of a fictional, long-running TV game show, GAME SHOW
places the theater audience in the role of the TV studio audience, in which members are picked as
the contestants to play the trivia-based game and win actual prizes. In addition to watching and
playing during the broadcast - where anything can and does happen -
the audience also witnesses all the backstage, back-stabbing antics "behind the scenes"
that go on during the commercial breaks of GAME SHOW.
