A brand new musical!  Nadine is a successful New York Attorney. But life has a way of throwing curve-balls, and when a significant change occurs in her well-ordered life, she must learn to adapt - and to reassess.   A trip to Boca Raton, re-connections with friends and family, and the possibility of a future she had often dreamed of but never believed could happen lead Nadine on a journey of discovery - about the choices she has made and those she can still make in order to find fulfillment and happiness.  Written by Boca Raton residents Bonnie Logan and Richard Peshkin.

Clemenza & Tessio Are Dead  takes a look at two little-noticed cogs in the Mafia machine and shows how those wise guys who are often overlooked can actually have the most fascinating stories of all.
Peter Clemenza and Salvatore Tessio are two longtime foot soldiers of the Corleone crime family, but after more than 40 years of service, upper management changes in the organization, and a perceived lack of respect from the incoming generation leads them to wonder if they're being put out to pasture (or under it). But with the handwriting already on the wall, is it possible to change what fate has already decreed? Well, yes - but only if someone is cunning enough to radically change the script.

November 22 - December 8

Broadway's greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent, politically incorrect, and one of the funniest musicals ever written.  A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a nonstop laughfest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two.

"So, come up to the lab and see what's on the slab!" ~ Frank N. Furter



Believe it or not, Halloween is just around the corner, and who better to celebrate with than the denizens of Dr. Frank N. Furter's home-sweet-castle in Richard O'Brien's beloved cult classic.    The  Rocky Horror Show  is an outrageous assemblage of - and humorous tribute to - the most stereotypical science fiction and horror movies, Marvel comics, Frankie Avalon/Annette Funicello outings and rock 'n' roll of every vintage. The play (upon which the classic film  The Rocky Horror  Picture Show  is based) has grown from an experimental production originally produced in a small London theatre in June 1973, to a cult phenomenon with fans world-wide.  The musical tells the story of a newly engaged couple who, when caught in a storm, find refuge in the home of a decidedly unusual scientist who is madly working towards unveiling his latest and greatest creation.

The Mersey Beatles are no ordinary tribute band. The lads grew up as childhood and schoolmate friends, just like The Beatles. They are the official Beatles tribute band representing the City of Liverpool, and from 2002 to 2012 they were the resident tribute band at The Cavern Club, the nightclub in Liverpool, England, where The Beatles perfected their act before launching a global rock music revolution in the 1960s.
Since 1999, the band has played sell-out shows in more than 20 countries, recreating The Beatles' most popular hits. The show spans the Fab Four's entire catalog with four costume changes and authentic Liverpool accents, wit, and charm. The Mersey Beatles recreate The Beatles' sound and image with amazing accuracy using replica Hofner, Rickenbacker, and Gretsch guitars and VOX and Ludwig gear.

In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles iconic Abbey Road, the band will play the entire album, followed by a set of Beatles' greatest hits.

Julia Baird, John Lennon's sister and the Director of the Cavern Club, will be in attendance selling and signing copies of her book Imagine This: Growing Up with My Brother John Lennon at the general merchandise table before, during and after the show.

How far will a gay guy go to please his parents? Daddy Issues centers on Donald Moscowitz, an openly gay actor living in New York City in 1982. His overbearing Jewish parents know he's gay but that doesn't stop them from demanding a grandchild. When Donald learns that Grandma Moscowitz will double his inheritance if he produces a grandchild, he enlists the help of the ten-year old kid from downstairs  to play his son from an experimental tryst he had in college. His two best friends Henrietta  and Levi, a drag star from the village, fight over who will play the birth mother, Mary Ellen McQuire. When Mom and Dad show up what could go wrong?  Playwright/director David Goldyn will star in the production.
