AN ACT OF GOD 

by David Javerbaum

September 16 - October 4, 2020

God is back…with a lot to say! Delivering a new and improved set of Commandments, God (assisted by His devoted angels) answers some of the deepest questions that have plagued mankind since Creation. The New York Times calls An Act of God “deliriously funny.” Thirteen-time Emmy Award winner David Javerbaum’s 90-minute romp delivers a new meaning to the phrase divine intervention.

THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT 

a new play by Jeremy Karken & David Murrell, and Gordon Farrell

based on the essay/book by John D’Agata & Jim Fingal 

October 21 - November 8, 2020

How negotiable is a fact? That’s the premise of this critically acclaimed 2018 Broadway hit filled with blistering comedy and contemporary relevance. At a high-end magazine, a demanding editor-in-chief hires a determined millennial fact-checker to work on a groundbreaking essay written by a famous author. Like magazines everywhere, this one is reeling from poor ad sales and shrinking circulation. But with this potentially sensational essay, salvation looms. The deadline is tight, the essay is dense, and everyone must make a good faith effort to tell the story honestly. When the fact checker goes too far, the ultimate showdown between “truth” and “accuracy” begins – with delicious consequences.

Neil Simon’s coming of age comedy is a valentine to his family.

Set in the Brighton Beach section of Brooklyn, New York in September 1937, this beloved classic touches and tickles the heartstrings.
