Now Playing!

A talking ape wearing a chic Chanel suit walks onto the stage . . . This is not the lead in line of a joke, but, in fact, how the dark comedy  Precious Little  begins. Don't let this diminutive title fool you: this funny, taut, touching play packs a punch and pulls none in its exploration of themes such as the universal search for connection, compassion, and understanding; language barriers and the power of the ineffable; and motherhood after 40-an increasingly common scenario for women in the 21st century.
Precious Little centers on Brodie, a linguist who learns unsettling news about the baby that she carries. Unable to obtain comfort from her girlfriend Dre, instead Brodie surprisingly finds solace in the elderly speaker of a vanishing language and a gorilla at the zoo. Performed by three actresses, two of whom play nine different characters between them, Precious Little is at once highly theatrical and completely grounded. Audiences can expect to laugh, think, and even shed a tear or two.

June 20 - 30

Monty Python's Spamalot ('lovingly ripped off from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail') is a deliriously funny spectacle that puts a hilariously unique spin on the legendary tale of King Arthur, his Knights of the Round Table, and their quest for the Holy Grail.
King Arthur, accompanied by his faithful servant, Patsy, travels through his kingdom, collecting members for his Round Table. Some of his recruits include Sir Robin, a collector of plague victims, and Lance a 'large, handsome, and incredibly violent man', who agree to join him - Lance 'for the fighting', and Robin for 'the singing and dancing'. The Lady of the Lake (and her Laker Girls), Sir Bedevere, and Sir Dennis Galahad eventually join Arthur in his search for The Holy Grail. The show also features a bevy of beautiful girls (of course), not to mention 'cows, killer rabbits, and French people'. As The Sunday Times observed, Monty Python's Spamalot 'raises silliness to an art form'.
