We have replaced “Lend me a Tenor” with this classic comedy by Neil Simon that will keep you laughing! Middle-aged Barney Cashman, who married his high school sweetheart, wants to have one sweeping extra-marital romantic fling in his tranquil, faithful, marriage before life passes him by. On three different afternoons, he brings women to his mother’s apartment while she’s at the hospital doing work. Behind plentiful laughs is a tender portrayal of a decent fellow who just can’t succeed in sinning. This is a comedy that will linger with you even when the laughs become an appreciative memory!
This is not the Jekyll and Hyde you’ve always seen! Henry Jekyll’s experiments bring forth his other self, Edward Hyde. Hyde, who is portrayed by four members of the cast, one of whom is female, is a sensualist and villain, free to commit the sins that Jekyll is too civilized to comprehend. When Hyde meets a woman who stirs his interest, Jekyll fears for her life and decides to end his experiments, but Hyde has other ideas. You won’t want to miss this hip, erotic show that is a little more theatrically intense than your grandfather’s version!
A harridan storms a bank and upbraids the manager for his gout and lack of money and a father takes his son to a house where he will be initiated into the mysteries of sex, only to relent at the last moment. A crafty seducer goes to work on a wedded woman, only to realize that the woman has been in command from the first overture. Let us not forget the classic tale of a man who offers to drown himself for three rubles. The stories are droll, the portraits affectionate, the humor infectious and the fun unending!
