Ken Ludwig's acclaimed adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 1902 classic mystery, The Hound of the Baskervilles, is full of intrigue and...huge laughs. The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being murdered one by one, and the renowned sleuth Sherlock Holmes, along with his trusted sidekick, Dr. Watson, must work feverishly to crack the curse before it dooms the newest heir. Five talented actors playing 40 quirky characters follow leads, unravel clues, hit dead-ends, and zigzag with the story until the shockingly funny conclusion.

Six clowns walk the precipice at the end of the world, lighting up the darkness along the way like firecrackers. BrouHaHa, an existential escapade that follows this troupe of eccentrics, was inspired by images of refugees, cinematic treasures like La Strada and The Seventh Seal, and the dark comedy of Samuel Beckett. BrouHaHa: a state of social agitation when a minor incident gets out of control. Typically, it is marked by controversy and fuss that can seem, afterwards, irrational.
Join Touchstone's annual holiday tradition, merrily assaulting the fun and foibles of the Christmas season in the Christmas City!

The Magrath sisters, Lenny, Meg, and Babe, are reunited at their family home in Hazlehurst, Mississippi, after Babe shoots her husband. Each one is facing down her own demons, past and present. Lenny cares for the grandfather who raised her as he dies, Meg grapples with dreams that didn't come true, and Babe squares off against an abusive spouse. It's a portrait of a dysfunctional family, but Beth Henley's Pulitzer Prize-winning play finds laughter within tragedy.
Created by Christopher Shorr Performed by the Touchstone Ensemble
What's the proper way to run your very own dictatorial regime? Where do you start and where do you go? Should you consider experimental techniques or go with the tried-and-true methods? Perhaps you or a loved one have dictatorial ambitions of your own, or perhaps you just want to recognize the signs when you see them. Either way, this "how-to" for the tradition of tyrannical despotism is for you. Told through biting satire and witty music by Ensemble member Christopher Shorr. No experience with repressive regimes necessary.
A new show from Philly's favorite comedy couple, Tony Braithwaite & Jen Childs! A glorious grab bag of sketches and songs, including routines from Burns & Allen, Nichols & May, and more!
Herb, a Hollywood screenwriter (played by Tony Braithwaite), is surprised when his forgotten teenage daughter reappears.
Pilgrims wash ashore in Massachusetts — turning North American life on its ear — in the world premiere production of The New World. This musical comedy reimagines the myth of the first meeting between the Pilgrims and Native Americans. The year is 1620. The Native Americans are enjoying a gluten-free, low-carb, happy life as artisans when they are invaded by the nation's first immigrants — Pilgrims! There goes the neighborhood, but in the grand tradition of musical comedies, love wins!
Brace yourself for comic chaos with Noises Off, the rip-roaring play within a play. The opening night performance of the farce Nothing On is just hours away, and as the actors stumble through their final dress rehearsal, things couldn't be going any worse. With lines being forgotten, love triangles unraveling, and sardines flying everywhere, it's complete pandemonium...and we haven't even reached intermission! Can the cast members pull their act together on the stage even if they can't behind the scenes?
With the worst play, worst director, and worst actors in New York, how could they go right? Mel Brooks's The Producers opened on Broadway to historic, unanimous rave reviews, earning a record-breaking 12 Tony Awards. This laugh-out-loud musical is the story of scheming producer Max Bialystock and his mousy accountant Leo Bloom. They discover that under the right circumstances they could make more money producing a flop than a hit. But what will they do when their sure-to-offend musical becomes a surprise sensation? This side-splitting tour-de-force spoofs grand, old-fashioned Broadway musicals while paying tribute to them all at the same time.
It's 1999, the cusp of a new millennium, and technology promises intimacy as well as anonymity. Christine and her fiancé Justin wander into this titillating world of role-play, secret delights, and shifting identities; but who will they be when they come out again? (And will they recognize themselves?)
