Auntie Mame

Synopsis:
This fabulously successful hit hardly needs introduction. Besides being the source for one of America's most popular musicals, aUNTIE MaME set a standard for Broadway comedy that's been sought after ever since. "auntie Mame was a handsome, sparkling, scatterbrained and warm-hearted lady who brightened the American landscape from 1928 to the immediate past by her whimsical gaiety, her slightly madcap adventures and her devotion to her young nephew, who grew up to be Patrick Dennis. Through fortunes that rose and fell and a pleasant but brief marriage to a likable Southerner, who had the bad luck to tumble down from the Matterhorn, auntie Mame's chief concern was that nephew, whom she raised. . .[the play's] central figure is a woman of spirit, innate kindness and undefeatable courage. . ."-NY Post.

Crocodile Smile, The

Synopsis:
Tells of two inspired French comedians, both popular favorites. a beautiful woman, in love with both of them, agrees to build them their ideal theatre. Then the rivalry begins: for she agrees to marry the "better actor." In tour-de-force roles which truly give actors a chance to show their talents, each goes to extravagant extremes to prove his mettle. The second act brings the deeply human awareness that genius cannot be handed over, gift-wrapped, to another generation. It is a fierce indictment against retirement, and offers a challenge to continue living in the living theatre

Diamond Orchid

Synopsis:
Even in her early days as an obscure radio actress, the natively keen-minded Felicia exploits every opportunity to obtain personal recognition. She meets a young army Colonel, who launches her into the stratosphere of society, and who, after a coup, becomes President of the Republic. arranging to become his wife and the First Lady, Felicia accumulates more and more power for herself, becoming lady bountiful to her adoring "Strongbacks." She begins to overshadow her husband, dominating the wealth and politics of her country and moving toward a kind of sainthood which will make her position unassailable. But despite her triumphant rise, Felicia is unable to gain what she wants most-acceptance by the social and intellectual elite of the nation. Rejection by the Pope is the final indignity which breaks her spirit and health. Her husband falls heir to an empty empire; as the play ends, there are intimations that, without her exotic aura, all will be lost as quickly and dramatically as it was created.

Incomparable Max, The

Synopsis:
The play begins with the appearance of "the incomparable Max" himself-critic, wit, caricaturist and satirist of matchless brilliance. The action then moves smoothly on to Max's encounter with Enoch Soames, a down-and-out poet whose arrogance far outstrips his accomplishments. But Soames, convinced of his genius, makes a pact with the devil to discover what posterity will say of him one hundred years hence. His ensuing adventure, which takes him to the eerily computerized reading room of the British Museum in 1997, is funny, touching, and concluded with the kind of masterly ironic twist for which the Beerbohm stories are so justly celebrated. In the second portion of the play, Max meets one a.V. Laider, a young man deeply interested in palmistry, and the glimpses of the future it reputedly can provide. Their casual discussion of the subject turns steadily more gripping-and horrifying-as the action of the play depicts the dreadful moment when Laider, aware that a train is about to be wrecked, lacked the will po

Live Spelled Backwards

Synopsis:
The scene is the American Bar in a sleepy Moroccan town, where a varied group of jaded expatriates gathers each evening seeking respite from the emptiness of their existence. This evening the bartender, Frank, offers them a special treat-a variety of mind-enhancing drugs. accepting eagerly they are soon experiencing the eerie thrill of expanded awareness, until Frank announces that it is all a hoax, and drugs merely harmless powder. Their reactions vary from anger, to disenchantment, to a sudden determination to return to the mainstream of life. But there are also those who defy his allegation and cling desperately to the joyous release the "drugs" have brought them. as the play ends, an uncertain Frank tentatively samples his own wares-and slowly but surely begins to experience the unearthly sensations for which he had scoffed at the others.

Sparks Fly Upward

Synopsis:
a scathing portrait of the flammable Evita Peron. Even in her early days as an obscure radio actress, the natively keen-minded Felicia exploits every opportunity to obtain personal recognition. She meets a young army Colonel, who launches her into the stratosphere of society, and who, after a coup, becomes President of the Republic. arranging to become his wife and the First Lady, Felicia accumulates more and more power for herself, becoming lady bountiful to her adoring "Strongbacks." She begins to overshadow her husband, dominating the wealth and politics of her country and moving toward a kind of sainthood which will make her position unassailable. But despite her triumphant rise, Felicia is unable to gain what she wants most-acceptance by the social and intellectual elite of the nation. Rejection by the Pope is the final indignity which breaks her spirit and health. Her husband falls heir to an empty empire; as the play ends, there are intimations that, without her exotic aura, all will be lost as quickly and dramatically as it was created.

Turn On The Night

Synopsis:
Tells of two inspired French comedians, both popular favorites. a beautiful woman, in love with both of them, agrees to build them their ideal theatre. Then the rivalry begins: for she agrees to marry the "better actor." In tour-de-force roles which truly give actors a chance to show their talents, each goes to extravagant extremes to prove his mettle. The second act brings the deeply human awareness that genius cannot be handed over, gift-wrapped, to another generation. It is a fierce indictment against retirement, and offers a challenge to continue living in the living theatre
