By Paula Vogel

February 2-18, 2024

Paula Vogel’s Indecent is a powerful and poignant play inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s God of Vengeance—a play seen by some as a seminal work of Jewish culture, and by others as an act of traitorous libel.  Indecent follows the journey of the play’s cast and crew as they navigate the challenges of artistic expression and the repression of their voices. Indecent explores the impact of censorship on art and is a moving tribute to the resilience of artists and the power of art to transcend borders and time.

The Color Purple

Based on the novel written by Alice Walker

April 5-14, 2024

The Color Purple is a stirring and soulful musical that tells the story of Celie, a young woman who endures years of abuse and hardship at the hands of the men in her life. Along the way, Celie forms close bonds with other women, including the vibrant and independent Shug Avery and the strong and fierce Sofia. Through the power of sisterhood and self-discovery, Celie finds her voice and breaks free from the chains of oppression. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Alice Walker and the hit 1985 movie, The Color Purple has an unforgettable score mixed with gospel, blues, and jazz. The Color Purple is a moving and inspiring story of hope and a celebration of life and the human spirit.

The roof is about to blow off of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.  When the President of the United States spins a PR nightmare into a global crisis, the seven women he relies on must risk everything to keep the commander-in-chief out of trouble. In POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass Are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive, this fiercely feminist farce will have audiences rolling in the aisles!  POTUS is a biting satire that highlights the challenges faced by women in positions of power and the absurdity of contemporary politics.
