October 9-18 - I Hate Hamlet

Andrew, star of a hit TV show, seems to have it all. And then the show is canceled. He lands the role of Hamlet, for a special staging in Central Park, but remains unhappy - and really not interested. His relationship with girlfriend Dierdre is strained, at best, and his agent, Lillian, is a little "off." Nevertheless, he joins her in a seance to try and bring back the legendary John Barrymore, the famous actor who once played Hamlet. As it happens, he gets help from Barrymore's ghost and ultimately performs in the play. As it happens, Barrymore's ghost has an agenda of his own, deciding to go after Dierdre! Clever and funny, this show is an affectionate look at the antics of live theatre and the people that love it.

October 9-18 - Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

Think political life in early America was staid and boring? Think again! Follow America's seventh President in this rocking, outrageously funny comedy, from his early days on the frontier to his rowdy tenure in the nation's capitol. An energizing rock score and unforgettable cast of characters help remind us that there's really not much new going on ... Mature content.
