Mrs. Dilber's Fabulous Bedcurtains
Mrs. Dilber's Fabulous Bedcurtains

Definitely not A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens! Rather, Mrs. Dilber's Fabulous Bedcurtains is a comedic reimagining of the classic holiday tale, but without the old rich guy! Instead, playwright Arthur M. Jolly focuses on Mrs. Dilber, the housekeeper in the original story - and her epic attempt to get some bedcurtains despite a series of ghosts and other diversions including Dr. Jekyll, the little matchstick girl and an oddly Mr. Hyde-esque Tiny Tim ... on a night somewhat adjacent to the more familiar story.

A Patsy Cline Holiday Concert
A Patsy Cline Holiday Concert

The Penelopiad
The Penelopiad

City Garage presents The Penelopiad by feminist icon Margaret Atwood, author of The Handmaid's Tale. In this remarkable retelling of The Odyssey, Atwood transforms both the power and the politics of the classic tale by shifting the point of view to Penelope, Odysseus's wife, and of her twelve faithful maids unjustly hanged by the returning "hero." It takes place in Hades, where these thirteen spirits are trapped for all eternity, telling and retelling their story like angry furies, unable to find redress for what they suffered at male hands. While her husband Odysseus is off fighting pointless wars-for the sake of her beautiful, shameless, aggravating cousin Helen-dallying with nymphs and sirens, and playing the hero, Penelope is holding the kingdom together. All alone, with nothing but her wits, toughness, and strength to rely on, she has to raise her rebellious son, face down dangerous rumors, and keep more than a hundred lustful, brutal suitors at bay. When twenty years later the "hero" finally returns there is indeed hell to pay-but it is Penelope and her twelve faithful maids who pay the tragic price. Atwood gives Penelope a modern voice, witty, pragmatic, yet still filled with pain as she gets to tell her own story at last, and set the record straight. Nudity.

Rent
Rent

RENT tells the story of a group of young artists struggling to survive and create a life in Lower Manhattan's East Village in the thriving days of bohemian Alphabet City, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. Ultimately, they learn to celebrate life and love, and to live as if there is "No Day But Today."

Smile
Smile
IAMA Theatre Company at Atwater Playhouse

Two women forge an unexpected bond in the world premiere of Smile, a new play from IAMA Theatre Company. A kid from the inner city whose mother moved her in order to attend a White, affluent public school in Philadelphia's Main Line, Rachel is a young girl still dreaming of her first kiss; she's ill-equipped to navigate a world which defines her solely by gender, race and class. When an "incident" at school lands Rachel in the guidance counselor's office, her situation sparks the young mother's own questions and insecurities. Soon, Rachel and Helen find themselves developing a complicated relationship.

Tosca
Tosca

Floria Tosca, the famous opera singer, seems to have it all. Audiences cherish her artistry and adore hearing about her tempestuous offstage romances. But as storms of repression and rebellion rage throughout Italy, the diva is forced to play a real-life role she never imagined. Torn between devotion to her lover and the machinations of a treacherous sociopath who will do anything in his power to break her down, she's trapped in an utterly impossible predicament, with fatal consequences for them all. But this prima donna isn't going down without a fight. The cast is led by four of the greatest artists of their generations. Soprano Angel Blue takes on the iconic role of Puccini's glamorous but tough-as-nails heroine, with tenors Michael Fabiano and Gregory Kunde sharing the role of Mario Cavaradossi, the rebel who becomes the target of the most dangerous man in Rome.

Ubu the King
Ubu the King
The Actor's Gang at The Ivy Substation

Ubu the King is the perfect story for these times. After all, if we can't find humor in government deception, failed coup d'etats, weird sexual proclivities, loud farts, debrainings and other pathological peculiarities embodied by Ubu the King, we are lost.

Winnie the Pooh
Winnie the Pooh

See Disney's iconic Winnie the Pooh, Christopher Robin and their best friends Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit, and Owl (oh... and don't forget Tigger too!) in a beautifully crafted musical stage adaptation. Featuring the Sherman Brother's classic Grammy-award winning music with further songs by A.A. Milne, this beautiful fresh stage adaptation is told with stunning life-sized puppetry through the eyes of the characters we all know and love, in a new story from the Hundred Acre Wood.
