Three separate brand new theatrical works based on the Grimm's fairy tale "Snow White and Rose Red" running in the third floor Skinner Studio November 2-19.
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.
From the ashes of World War II, Dutch patriots discover that one of their own — a rich and reputable art dealer — has sold rare Vermeer paintings to the Nazis. Accused of treason and on trial for his life, he must decide whether to destroy his own reputation or to reveal bigger secrets behind these works that the Dutch consider national treasures. Commissioned and developed through Lantern Theater Company's New Works Initiative, this world premiere by celebrated Philadelphia playwright Bruce Graham spins a darkly ironic tale of ambition, genius, and deception.
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.

After a restless night, Erik Blake has brought his family from Pennsylvania to celebrate Thanksgiving at his daughter's new apartment in Lower Manhattan. As darkness falls outside the crumbling pre-war duplex, mysterious things go bump in the night, and family tensions reach a boiling point. The angst, anguish, and amity of the American middle class are first coaxed — then shoved — into the light in this sidesplitting, hopeful, and heartbreaking play.
Herb, a Hollywood screenwriter (played by Tony Braithwaite), is surprised when his forgotten teenage daughter reappears.
The art of storytelling is heavenly when you discover It's a Wonderful Life. The holiday classic comes to life anew as a radio play with five actors, including an imaginative sound-effects artist! George Bailey dreams of traveling the world. His plans are postponed when the family business faces financial problems. Down on his luck, Bailey is at the end of his rope. He questions his purpose in life and considers ending it all. Just then, an angel arrives to show Bailey how the lives of those he loves would be affected if he were not around. Your entire family will love this story from the heart!
The Miser, Molière's immortal classic and one of the most deliriously comic masterpieces in the theatrical world is being brought to life in an uproarious, briskly paced new translation that sees its raucous comedy through a contemporary lens.
A new comedy about the friendship between a little girl and her (real to her) polar bear! My Very Own Polar Bear is a hilarious and heartwarming story about a life-changing Christmas present. Inspired by such classics as Calvin and Hobbes, Corduroy, and Knuffle Bunny, this new tale for the entire family is brought to you and your family by the author of the Murray the Elf mysteries.
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?
Cecily, Reggie, and Wilf live in a home for retired opera singers, where they take part in an annual concert to celebrate Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi's birthday. When opera great Jean Horton arrives just in time to sing at the concert, she's asked to perform for the first time in over 20 years, but will the show actually go on? Two friends and her ex-husband will do anything to make sure Jean takes the stage. This funny and poignant play is a sweet ode to the art of growing old gracefully, culminating in a rousing, glorious finale.
Three love stories...plus a murder mystery and nuclear espionage plot. A hilarious noir comedy about marriage and other explosive devices.
This hard-hitting Broadway smash will keep viewers on the edge of their seats! Friends since kindergarten, Chicago cops Joey and Denny are like brothers. Intensely loyal, they want to do right by the force, their family, and each other. Joey is a loner with a bit of a drinking problem. Denny is a family man passed over for promotion one time too many. Their relationship is put on the line after they respond to a domestic disturbance that takes a turn for the worse. Each man's harrowing version of the truth becomes a fight for his own survival.
Sarah and James work together as war correspondents — she's a photographer; he's a writer. When a car bomb injures Sarah, she comes home to recuperate in the loft they share. It's soon clear that she is eager to return to the action, while he's relieved to be away from the terror and bloodshed. Faced with the prospect of leading a normal life, can Sarah confront her addiction to chaos and war? From Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies, this Broadway hit play is a witty, intelligent look at ordinary life through the lens of war.
