THE MUSICAL COMEDY MURDERS OF 1940 Jan 2 - 17 - Wed, Thurs, Fri & Sat
An hilarious whodunnit....the name says it all: music, comedy, and murder. THE MUSICAL COMEDY MURDERS OF 1940 is set in the mansion library of Elsa von Grossenkneuten in Chappaqua, NY in 1940. She has invited the crew of a musical that had a series of murders associated with it to her home to consider a new show which she will produce. This is actually a ruse to reopen the cold case of the Stage Door Slasher. To tell you any more would spoil the fun. This Murder Mystery is a nonstop ride of laughs and mystery. Directed by Danny Mininni. More info...

FOREVER PLAID - THE MUSICAL Feb 26, 27 & 28; Mar 5, 6, 7, 12, 13 & 14
THE OLDEST PROFESSION Mar 19 - April 4 - Thurs, Fri & Sat
In Paula Vogel’s THE OLDEST PROFESSION, we watch this squabbling sisterhood, who’ve worked together for 50 years, weather the storm of economic and political changes in the country (beginning on the eve of Ronald Reagan’s election) over the course of presumably many years.
A little bit “Golden Girls,” a smidgen of over-the-hill “Sex and the City,” with a dollop of political asides tossed in, this is a charming, airy audience-‐pleaser — not realistic, just downright, irresistible fun.
