Open: 07/17/15- Close: 08/02/15 BOY GETS GIRL
Time Magazine Play of the Year

Variety says: "Rebecca Gilman offers up a tale of Gotham singledom you won't be seeing any time soon on 'Sex and the City.' A disturbing chiller about a woman whose life of accomplishment is quickly destroyed by a disturbed admirer, the play works powerfully at its most basic level…"

Theresa Bedell is a successful reporter in New York who loves her work and the life she has made for herself. A relationship with a man would complete the picture and so she agrees to go on a blind date with a friend of a friend. Tony is attractive and funny, but More Information »

Open: 07/17/15- Close: 08/02/15 BOYS' LIFE
What happens when boys and girls don't do as they're told?

A bitingly funny postmodern comedy of manners, which follows the fortunes of a group of urban male "yuppies" as they attempt to come to terms with life. Produced with great critical and popular success by New York's prestigious Lincoln Center Theater.

Told in a series of fastpaced, sharply etched scenes, the play traces the misadventures of three former college buddies now seeking to make their way in the big city—and with various women of their acquaintance. There is the cynical Jack, who is already married More Information »

Open: 07/24/15- Close: 08/02/15 BUTCHER HOLLER HERE WE COME
1973, West Virginia. Following a cave collapse, 5 coal miners struggle to survive the dwindling supply of oxygen, the lack of food and water, the unravelling sense of passing time, and, even more threatening, their own competing natures. Brutally weaving through family histories, complicated friendships, crooked politics, childhood visions, audacious hopes, eerie dreams, criminal addictions, and fervent spirituality in this run-of-the-mill Appalachian community, Butcher Holler Here We Come is a descent into the male psyche-in-crisis where secret desires, carnal urges, and hidden memories come boiling to the surface in a primitive territory of Earth that mirrors the subliminal mind.

Butcher Holler Here We Come is immersively staged with the audience surrounding the actors and the performance is lit entirely by the

Open: 07/17/15- Close: 08/02/15 Julius Caesar
“When beggars die, there are no comets seen;

the heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes.”

After receiving praise from audiences and critics alike for their smash hit productions of Much Ado about Nothing and Romeo & Juliet in 2014, What Dreams May Co in partnership with Queens Shakespeare Inc. sets 2015 ablaze with controversial, brutal, modern re-imaginings of two of the classical theatre’s most horrifying yet soul searching works. Join us as we shine the looking glass on men worshiped as gods, vengeful gods walking amongst men, and the destructive might of men turned mob.  First up…Julius Caesar.

Director Chris Rivera (Director of 2014’s critically acclaimed Romeo & Juliet) brings audiences to an apocalyptic Rome.

Open: 07/10/15- Close: 09/20/15 MRS. SMITH'S BROADWAY CAT-TACULAR!
Mrs. Smith’s Broadway Cat-tacular!, is an all-singing, all-dancing “demented cabaret on acid.” 

Mrs. Smith is a woman on the verge of a cat-based breakdown — in search of her missing cat, Carlyle. To overcome the grief and rage of this “personal apocalypse,” she’s tried psychoanalysis, New Age therapies and, now, mounting a Broadway-style musical spectacular where her bizarre life story is re-enacted in delirious song and dance. With the aid of her dapper Broadway Boys, Mrs. Smith puts her laugh-out-loud spin on the perilous highs and lows of fame, fortune and superstardom. Featuring classic Broadway hits like “Cabaret,” “One Night in Bangkok,” “The Cat That Got Away” and many more, this More Information »
