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.

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.

"...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.

Rave Reviews & A Carbonell Recommendation for 
Man of La Mancha
Man of La Mancha i s one of the world's most popular musicals. Inspired by Miguel de Cervantes' seventeenth-century masterwork Don Quixote and set during the Spanish Inquisition, the original 1965 production won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
Cervantes is in prison awaiting trial. He and his fellow prisoners perform a play-within-a-play, telling the story of the elderly Alonso Quijana, who renames himself Don Quixote and goes on a quest to right all 
wrongs in the world.

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.
