Once In a Lifetime
By Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman 
 
  

November 10, 11, 12 at 7:00 PM

This is a knockabout satiric tale of three on-the-skids vaudeville troupers Jerry, Mae, and George, who decide to head for Hollywood and try their luck at the newest craze: "talkies". After a hilarious series of consistent blunders, the unassuming George is carried to fame and fortune becoming (for a short time, at least) a captain of The Industry. This fast-paced, wild romp offers marvelous character opportunities while spoofing the absurdities of Tinsel Town.


Cyrano
By Edmond Rostand
Translated by Michael Hollinger
Adapted by Michael Hollinger and Aaron Posner 

December 1, 2, 3 at 7:00 PM

The most legendary nose in literature gets a makeover with this lively American adaptation of the 1897 French classic. Will Roxane fall for Christian’s dashing looks or Cyrano’s daring poetry? Find out in this timeless tale—full of wordplay and swordplay—that’s been an inspiration to writers and lovers for centuries.
“…a sterling, illuminating new translation by Michael Hollinger… “…well-crafted, rhythmically beautiful, humorous, emotionally resonant and convincing…Hollinger removes the original’s many allusions to French society and norms and lets the audience enjoy modern equivalents, reflected mostly through language. Hollinger gives his actors plenty to work with.” —BroadStreetReview.com”
