 bclogooption6Middletown_poster_July23VERMiddletown by: Will Eno

Set in a simple little town in the mid-west, the strange beauty of life and its sometimes unbearable weight are both considered with a screwball lyricism. In this delicate, moving, and wry amble along the collective road to nowhere, the folks are friendly, and the view of star-dappled skies and modest homes is familiar and comforting, yet somewhat confusing and dark; a modern view of Thorton Wilder’s “Our Town.”

Bringing together conflicting legends and ballads about the famous outlaw folk hero in a hysterical, sprawling, action-packed drama that everyone will enjoy. Told from the perspectives of Robin himself, Maid Marian, and Prince John, this hilarious tale combines three different stories into one — and with three different endings, leaves it up to the audience to decide which one is true!
Great entertainment for the whole family during the Christmas season.

 Present Laughter Web Poster 4 x 6 at 150 dpi copyPresent Laughter

May 12-22, 2016

A comedy about a few days in the life of a successful and self-obsessed matinee idol. He deals with a series of very funny events as he works to overcome his impending midlife crisis.  The play was written by Noel Coward for himself and was described as a series of semi-autobiographical pyrotechnics!  Most recently revived on Broadway in 2010 to rave reviews with London’s own Victor Garbor.
