All 37 Plays in 97 Minutes! An irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) was London’s longest-running comedy having clocked a very palpable nine years in London’s West End at the Criterion Theatre! To celebrate the 20th anniversary of this classic farce, two of its original writers (Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield) have thoroughly revised the show to bring it up to date for 21st-century audiences, incorporating some of the funniest material from the numerous amateur and professional productions that have been performed around the world. Join the madcap cast in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories and Tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.

It’s Alive! A wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend based on Mel Brooks’ classic comedy masterpiece, Young Frankenstein follows the madcap adventures of Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronk-en-steen), the grandson of the infamous Dr. Victor Frankenstein.
With the help of a hunchbacked side-kick, Igor (pronounced “Eye-gore”), and a curvaceous lab assistant, Inga, Frederick finds himself in the shoes of his mad scientist ancestor. “It’s alive!” he exclaims when he succeeds in creating a “Monster” that rivals his grandfather’s. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds.
With such memorable tunes as “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ On The Ritz,” The New MEL BROOKS Musical Young Frankenstein is scientifically-proven, monstrously good entertainment! – Directed by Jennifer Dunn – Courtesy of Musical Theatre International

It is December 1936 and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast-members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. Then it’s up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.
