Lyle Courtney Productions presents the brisk new comedy written and performed by Emmy Award-winning Letterman writer Ted Greenberg.
Travel back to December 18, 1987 – the nine-year anniversary of Ted Greenberg's long overdue college paper on Edmund Spenser's The Fairie Queene. On that snowy Friday, Ted drives a New York City cab while his father Ace Greenberg runs Wall Street. Ted has one screaming deadline in front of him: turn the paper in by midnight or lose his chance to graduate from Harvard. Forever. It will take a wild ride through the Big Apple, his past and with a white collar felon before he’s able to come to grips with whether to be a dropout or not to be a dropout.

"In the empty living room of a shabby apartment, a Beast is crying. There is just enough light to see that he is monstrous, and clutching something precious to him."
Beauty never showed up. Centuries after the curse, the Beast and his last remaining magical servant are holed up in a ramshackle apartment, managed by a mysterious landlady with a suspicious taste for gingerbread. When an eligible maiden moves in next door, "happily ever after" feels agonizingly within reach, but we all know that in fairytales, nothing is exactly as it seems. Full of humor, magic, and belief in the life-altering power of love, Glassheart is a witty and decidedly adult take on a classic tale that explores the space between light and dark, and the sacrifices we make in search of an ordinary life.

THE BOX SHOW|
In this hilarious solo show, one woman plays over 25 different characters from inside a kitchen cupboard. (Yes, you read that correctly: the whole show takes place inside of a cupboard!) Each time the doors open the audience discovers an entirely new reality, ranging from a drunken couple in Las Vegas to the entire Greek Army inside the Trojan Horse, a lonely Giantess, a lost Pope, and so much more! With sketch-style characters and musical numbers, THE BOX SHOW is a fast-paced roller coaster ride that plunges its audience into vastly different worlds without ever leaving the physical space of The Box. The space is limited, but the comedic possibilities are endless. The New York Times hailed THE BOX SHOW as “The most purely delicious production… relentlessly inventive…a paragon of Fringe form.”
