URINETOWN, THE MUSICAL
Music and Lyrics by Mark Hollmann
Book and Lyrics
by Greg Kotis
October 18-27, 2013, Callahan Theater
One of the funniest musicals in years, URINETOWN is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution. In a Gotham-like city, a water shortage has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. A hero decides he's had enough, and plans a revolution. URINETOWN is an irreverent satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. URINETOWN was produced on Broadway in September, 2001 by the Araca Group and Dodger Theatricals in association with TheaterDreams, Inc., and Lauren Mitchell.
AN EVENING OF DAVID IVES
November 15-24, 2013, Studio Theater A48
Respected author of short and full-length plays, musical libretti and children's literature, David Ives is arguably America's leading comic playwright. Ives is perhaps best known for his off-the-wall short works that serve as mash-ups of farce, comedy of manners and absurdism. Come and see the best in contemporary comic playwriting in several of Ives' wackiest works, pulled from such collections as All In the Timing, Time Flies, and Mere Mortals.

The story of a pioneer woman and her six daughters, QUILTERS blends a series of scenes into a rich patchwork capturing the harsh challenges and abiding rewards of frontier life. Illuminating stories mix music, dance and drama, and depict the lot of women on the frontier. The effect is both breathtaking and magical—and a theatrical masterstroke which will linger in the mind and memory long after the house lights have dimmed.
THE CHERRY ORCHARD
By Anton Chekhov, Adapted by David Mamet
April 11-19, 2014, Callahan Theater
Anton Chekhov's last full length play is a deeply human comic elegy to a vanishing way of life. As the nineteenth century ends, a Russian aristocrat returns home to find the family estate in mortgage default. Neither she nor her brother seem capable of dealing with this devastating loss and it is left to a former serf and family retainer to take action. Tragedy mingles with farce as they all try to fathom a world on the brink of upheaval.
