“Cyrano de Bergerac: A Queeroic Comedy with Many Acts,” Based on Edmond Rostand’s Play; Adapted and Directed by Erin Murray


Romance! Swordplay! Poetic language of love! This French feast of a play has it all. Cyrano. What a person they are; eloquent and generous. This tour-de-force will make you laugh, cry and think. And then laugh and cry again. C’est bien! Go see it.

“Titus Andronicus” By William Shakespeare, Directed by Scott Kaiser


Devastatingly intrepid in his use of high drama and violence, Shakespeare has fun with malice, mayhem and revenge in this play as he explores the toxicity of power. This production slashes away elegantly with unabashed commitment to Shakespeare’s dark imagination. Go!


Aug. 20, 26, 28 + Sept. 1, 4, 10
