Lisa's 74-year-old father won't stop riding roller coasters. But as his health begins to fail, Lisa must deal with the limits of an aging parent she idolizes. With compassion and razor-sharp humor, 2.5 Minute Ride weaves together Lisa's memories of two very different family trips: their annual pilgrimage to an Ohio amusement park and an unforgettable journey through their family's history. With her wife's support, Lisa chronicles her father's life as a Holocaust survivor and weathers the many pitfalls of adventuring with a septuagenarian. This one-woman show is by three-time Tony-winner Lisa Kron, writer of Broadway's Fun Home.
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.
Created and performed by Happenstance Theater
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.
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.
