Opening April 14th
April 14 - May 28

A blend of devilish humor, romance, murder, and music, No Way to Treat a Lady features a publicity crazed actor turned serial killer, and the detective who pursues him.

"Terrific!  Hilarious!  Dynamic! An unabashedly histrionic romp with plenty of laughs, a fair share of romance and a welcome abundance of drollery." -The Los Angeles Times

"Catchy tunes and snappy lyrics...Mr. Cohen's score is a reassuring fusion, a mastery of traditional musical comedy style adorning and informing an offbeat story.  A beguiling musical!" -  The New York Times

Gender And The Pulitzer Prize
A Yearlong Play Reading Series

Arguably the most prestigious award for recognizing  excellence in journalism, literature, music, and photography, the Pulitzer Prize is  currently enjoying its 100th birthday. To participate in the centenary festivities, Thinking Cap Theatre proudly presents  GAP - A Yearlong Play Reading Series  that  spotlights and examines Pulitzer plays by women.

The Pulitzer Prize Board has awarded a prize in the category of drama 86 times in
the past 100 years.  Of the 86 award-winning  plays, only 15 (17%) were penned in full or in part by a woman;  Thinking  Cap's GAP Series  will feature a staged reading of 11 of those 15 plays by women.

The  GAP series will run February through December 2017 at The Vanguard. 
The readings will take place once per month on a designated Sunday at 1 pm. There
will be talk backs with cast and director, moderated by a dramaturge, directly following
each reading.

A full schedule of readings and dates will be available at  www.thinkingcaptheatre.com .

The next reading in the  GAP Series will be on  Sunday, April 23 at 1 pm with  The Diary of Anne Frank , the 1956 Pulitzer prize-winner by Frances Goodrich & Albert Hackett.

A World Premiere

Degas.  Monet.  Renoir.  These Impressionists painted the indelible images that have lasted for centuries.     With Impressions, Michael Leeds employs three exceptional actresses - Patti Gardner, Barbara Sloan, and Karen Stephens - to bring to life the women in their paintings.  From a Degas dancer to a Monet matron, Impressions imagines who these women are and what they're thinking.  Art literally brought to life.

Summer Fest is Coming Soon!
South Florida Theatre League

South Florida audiences will once again have the opportunity to see theatre for free, check out new plays by South Florida playwrights, and attend theatres they might not usually visit when
The South Florida Theatre League's Summer Theatre Fest begins in early June. 

Almost every Monday from the beginning of June through the end of August, a South Florida Theatre League member theatre or theatre company will host a reading of a new play by a local playwright. Playwrights range from established local favorites, including Carbonell Award-winners, to emerging talents, with plays vastly ranging in subject matter and style. 

Information about each play, as well as dates, times, and performance locations will be posted on the South Florida Theatre League website:
http://southfloridatheatre.org within the next few weeks. 

The South Florida Theatre League is an alliance of theatrical organizations and professionals dedicated to nurturing, promoting, and advocating for the the growth and prestige of the South Florida theatre industry.  


On a barren stretch of road, near a single nondescript tree, two vagabond men wait for someone or something named Godot.  Their hope seems to be that the mysterious Godot will change their lives for the better.  Two strangers arrive, one man at the end of another's rope. A boy also appears and disappears. 

The simplicity of the description of Waiting for Godot belies its depth and complexity. Critics, scholars, and audiences have read numerous interpretations into Beckett's work - philosophical, religious, political, and social references have been cited and discussed since the play's world premiere in Paris in 1953 - it was Beckett's first professionally produced play - and its North American premiere at Florida's Coconut Grove Playhouse in 1956.  In a poll conducted by the British Royal National Theatre in 1990, Waiting for Godot was voted the 'most significant English language play of the 20th century.'

Comedy Central/National Lampoon star Tommy Koenig's 'one man musicomedy',   Baby Boomer Baby is an energetic, entertaining, and very funny 'flashback through our times and the music that defined them'.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1953, the year Rock and Roll was born, and raised in Rockaway Beach, the son of a musician who played with Glenn Miller during World War II,  Koenig was greatly influenced by chance meetings with John F. Kennedy and later George Carlin, and mostly by what the Beatles brought - the influence of music on Boomers' culture and personal choices.  In Baby Boomer Baby Koenig recounts the years he struggled to keep up with the changing times, just missing Woodstock by a few miles; the rites of passage of College, Travel, Sex, and Drugs; and the ever changing cultural and political landscape that music unleashed as it morphed from Disco to Punk to MTV to Rap and beyond.

During the show Koenig channels dozens of well-known - and original - characters in a one man tour de force spanning 7 decades. With original songs and parodies of everyone from The Beatles to Lady Gaga, and from Doo Wop to Hip Hop, Koenig's impressions include Elton John, Billy Joel, Blondie, Willie Nelson, Tina Turner, Bruce Springsteen, The Bee Gees, and the Eagles, among others.
