Open: 07/13/15- Close: 07/20/15 REAL MEN, A MUSICAL FOR GUYS AND THE WOMEN WHO PUT UP WITH THEM
Finally, theater for men who hate theater. Get real and get ready for an original adult musical comedy about real men behaving like...well...REAL MEN. It's a madcap, musical romp through manhood, shared with women, children, and yes, even puppets. REAL MEN, who make a habit of juggling their balls every day: fatherhood, mid-life crisis, dating, marriage, potency, sexuality...and the lack of it. REAL MEN answers the one pertinent question on everyone's mind, "Do real men sing and play with puppets?" Get real! You'd better believe they do.

With book, music and lyrics by Paul Louis and Nick Santa Maria, David Arisco directs a cast of three, including Paul

A small peaceful town in provincial France has a big problem. A pair of rhinoceroses has just arrived and they are tearing up the neighborhood! What is even more bizarre is that these are not ordinary rhinoceroses but people who have been victims of "rhinoceritis." Or is it something else entirely? Why are people really turning into rhinoceroses and what is Ionesco trying to tell us about society?
