the classic love story, Love Letters and the newly acquired rights to the recent hit Broadway show, God of Carnage.
We are adding an encore production of Love, Loss and What I Wore as well. See the 2013 Schedule page for exact dates
and times of these great shows!
God of Carnage
by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton
Winner of the
2009 Tony Award. A playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of 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 principles in tatters. This production is directed
by Michael Muldoon and features M&M co-founder, Melinda O’Brien, M&M veterans Elise Godfrey and Gary Simon with
Bruce Pearl making his M&M debut.
Love Letters is AR Gurney's most loved play.
From their first scrawled valentines of childhood, to the last guilty good-byes, Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd's
letters envelop us in a unique nostalgia. While the images they create bring back youth's universal innocence, fears and fancies,
they further reveal themselves, their goals and their dreams in a "love affair" that takes them from grade school
through middle age. And as they ponder opportunity lost and love squandered, we see the very essence of their life-long relationship...all
in the letters that were at its very root.
Encore by Popular Demand:
and What I Wore
Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron, based on the book by Ilene Beckerman
the award winning writers of When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail and Silkwood comes the hit
play, Love, Loss, and What I Wore, that just completed a hugely successful 2 ½-year New York run. The off-Broadway
performances featured a stellar, rotating cast that included Tyne Daly, Rosie O’Donnell, Samantha Bee, Kristin Chenoweth,
Jane Lynch, Rhea Perlman, Rita Wilson, Brooke Shields, and scores more. A funny, compelling and touching tale. Women’s
stories of love and loss woven together to form a masterwork. A play of monologues and ensemble pieces about women, clothes
and memory covering all the important subjects—mothers, prom dresses, mothers, buying bras, mothers, hating purses and
why we only wear black.
