Open: 10/01/17- Close: 11/05/17 ACE
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.

Open: 10/07/17- Close: 10/07/17 Mad Women In My Attic!
Typecasting and a theatre career drove Monica to insanity so she exchanged her stage wings for padded walls, glamorous costumes for a white nightgown, adoring audiences for a bunch of inmates. Yet, she will sing! A madwoman proudly recounts the roles and songs which made her who she is today, celebrating that fine line between creativity and madness.

A semi-autobiographical cabaret set in a lunatic asylum. From Sweeney Todd, to Jane Eyre the musical, from Sunset Boulevard to Kiss of the Spiderwoman, Mad Women in my Attic! is a fantastic romp through showtunes, folk and cabaret songs, celebrating the mentally unstable women that populate music and theatre.

Part of the United Solo Festival

Open: 10/02/17- Close: 11/06/17 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.”
