About the shows:
Stop Kiss: “A poignant and funny play about the ways, both sudden and slow, that lives can change irrevocably,” says Variety. After Callie meets Sara, the two unexpectedly fall in love. Their first kiss provokes a violent attack that transforms their lives in a way they could never anticipate.
It’s a Wonderful Life: In our American culture It’s a Wonderful Life has become almost as familiar as Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty. Clarence, George’s guardian angel, pays a visit on Christmas Eve to save George from despair and to remind him by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born, that his has been, after all, a wonderful life.
Doubt, A Parable: In this brilliant and powerful drama, Sister Aloysius, a Bronx school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the young Father Flynn of improper relations with one of the male students. “A beautifully balanced drama. Shanley is a writer working at the top of his craft, making the most of a muted but evocative palette in the pursuit of truth’s shadows. Here, for the first time in a long time, is a play that is about something.” —Chicago Tribune. Doubt is the winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award.
