When John takes a break from his boyfriend, he accidentally meets the girl of his dreams. John has to make a decision, and there is only one way to straighten this out...
Tood, Weetsie, and Sybill are brides in rural Louisiana in 1943. Each married a Cliffert brother. The men are off to war, and a local news story about these young wives keeping the home fires burning intrigues Henry Luce. He decides that they belong on the cover of Life magazine and assigns Kate Miller to the story. She has been covering the war in Europe and, though she views doing a "women's piece" as a career setback, she accepts because it will be her first cover story. Kate spends a week with the Cliffert women, and her haughty urban attitude gives way to sympathy as she begins to understand them while coming face-to-face with her own powerlessness in a man's world. Filled with charm and fun, The Cover of Life is a deeply affecting story about the struggle for self-worth.
Join us for Sea Dog Theater's inaugural production of John Patrick Shanley's critically acclaimed play, Danny and the Deep Blue Sea. The setting is a run-down bar in the Bronx, where two of society's rejects, Danny and Roberta, strike up a halting conversation over their beer. Both with destructive pasts and previously incapable of genuine relationships, the evening delves deep into the brokenness and beauty of their lives. In the end, there are no easy answers, yet both characters manage to find an exorcism and forgiveness that, while painfully achieved, offers the reconciliatory hope of a future together.
Sea Dog Theater's mission is to tell stories in which the experience of alienation and the struggle for reconciliation intersect. With an emphasis on hospitality and creating an ensemble of artists, Sea Dog Theater produces two full productions each year and monthly reading events. A small reception follows each event.
A Dixon Place premiere you won't tell your parents about when you dress up and sneak out to see it late at night. Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's The Masque of the Red Death, this ensemble-created piece explores power, privilege, and unrequited love. We follow the adventures of MAN as he stumbles upon an invitation he shouldn't open, goes to a party where he doesn't belong, and experiences a night he never should have experienced. Using subculture interactions to reflect societal norms, this show reveals and destabilizes the status quo like a funhouse mirror. Drawing from the worlds of vaudeville, clowning, drag, and cult horror, we aim to entertain, unsettle, disgust, and delight.

The Bridge Production Group is thrilled to present Hedda, the world premiere adaptation of Ibsen's Hedda Gabler through the darkly comic and absurd lens of playwright Carol Brown.
Returning to Norway from a three-month honeymoon abroad, Hedda Gabler finds herself trapped in an unfurnished house, surrounded by her uninspiring and academic husband. Trapped by moving boxes. Trapped by talks of academia. Trapped.

The cast is comprised of Carol Brown (The Good Wife"), Tim Thomas (original company of Into the Woods), Madeleine Rogers (Juilliard), Max Samuels (Angry Young Man), and Mike Labbadia (cofounder of Produced by Actors).

When David Bowie died, performing artist Soomi Kim was suddenly reminded of her own coming of age in the MTV generation and her adolescent desire to be the exotic Asian woman in Bowie's "China Girl" video. MLCG (My Little China Girl) is a high-octane solo performance that traverses Kim's experiences as a first-generation Korean-American navigating the single most tragic event in her life, the confiscation of memories, and the attempts that were made to replace them. MLCG (My Little China Girl) pairs award-winning artists Kim and director Leta Tremblay with video artists Justin West and Kevan Loney.
"Struggles of addiction, friendship, love and the challenges of adulthood are at the center of the story. Jackie, a petty drug dealer, is just out of prison and trying to stay clean. He's also still in love with his coke-addicted childhood sweetheart, Veronica. Ralph D. is Jackie's too-smooth, slightly slippery sponsor. He's married to the bitter and disaffected Victoria, who, by the way, has the hots for Jackie. And then there's Julio, Jackie's cousin."
Written by Stephen Adly Guirgis and produced by Marshall Hall Productions, this cast delivers a fresh and honest take on an unforgettable story. Hilarious yet heartwarming and verbally high-octane, be ready to be thoroughly entertained.

Made of up 112 girls ages 17-26, they flew for 3 1/2 years using repurposed crop-dusting planes to drop bombs on Nazi forces below. Inspired from Anne Noggle's book, A Dance with Death, Night Witches weaves together a story of sisterhood, courage, and endurance amidst a world war.

As we watch Terry's relationship with her husband deteriorate over time, the clues begin to fall into place.

Detailing the exploits of two American men who travel to Amsterdam to hire a female prostitute, Adam Rapp's Red Light Winter confronts the expectations of fantasy, the disappointment of reality, and the complexities of unrequited love — a twisted and complicated web, spanning Amsterdam's Red Light District to the East Village.

This fall, Two Headed Rep's pairing of plays find themselves in the workplace, inhabited by people who, every day, confront, consider, and carry out what's expected of them.

Two Headed Rep asks these questions and more with their fall rep: a new adaptation of Miss Julie by Brittany Allen, Will Arbery, and Amanda Keating, and Reno & Moll, a new play written in response to Strindberg's classic by Emma Horwitz.
