1960s, Paris. Bachelor Bernard has a flat in Paris and three airline stewardesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. Bernard’s life gets bumpy, though, when his friend Robert comes to stay, and complications such as weather and a new, speedier Boeing jet disrupt his careful planning. Soon, all three stewardesses are in the city simultaneously and catastrophe looms.

Present day. A playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses, and the rum flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off, leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principles in tatters.

WWII era. Oberon Playhouse’s director and leading men are off at war. Determined to press on, the director’s wife sets out to produce an all-female version of Shakespeare’s Henriad, assembling an increasingly unexpected team united in desire, if not actual theatre experience. Together they deliver a delightful celebration of collaboration and persistence when the show must go on!

This is the knock-’em-dead, uproarious hit and the most-nominated show of the 2014 season with four Tony wins including Best Musical. When the low-born Monty Navarro finds out that he’s eighth in line for an earldom in the lofty D’Ysquith family, he figures his chances of outliving his predecessors are slight, so what’s a guy to do? Can he knock off his unsuspecting relatives without being caught and become the ninth Earl of Highhurst? And what of love? Because murder isn’t the only thing on Monty’s mind….

The Last Night of Ballyhoo

The Last Night of Ballyhoo
Oct 27-Nov 5, 2023

From the author of Driving Miss Daisy comes this story of history and discovery. It is set in Atlanta, December 1939. Hitler has just conquered Poland, Gone With the Wind is about to premiere, and the upper class, German-Jewish Freitag family is so assimilated they have a Christmas tree in the parlor and are looking forward to Ballyhoo, a lavish ball at their restrictive country club. Adolph’s new employee, Joe, is an attractive bachelor and an Eastern European Jew, familiar with prejudice but unable to fathom its existence within his own religious community. His presence prompts college student Sunny to examine her Jewish identity, her biases, and the beliefs with which she was raised.
