Becoming Dr. Ruth

Synopsis:
Everyone knows Dr. Ruth Westheimer from her career as a pioneering radio and television sex therapist. Few, however, know the incredible journey that preceded it. From fleeing the Nazis in the Kindertransport and joining the Haganah in Jerusalem as a sniper, to her struggle to succeed as a single mother newly-arrived in America, Mark St. Germain deftly illuminates this remarkable woman's untold story. BECOMING DR. RUTH is filled with the humor, honesty, and life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel, the girl who became "Dr. Ruth," America's most famous sex therapist.

Synopsis:
Hugh Lofting, a lieutenant in the Royal British Army, is separated from his son Colin during World War I. At his wife's urging, Lofting writes a story for him from the front. Despite the harsh conditions on the battlefield, Lieutenant Lofting's imagination comes alive as he concocts a marvelous tale about a kind-hearted physician who can talk with the animals: The Story of Doctor Dolittle. In the little English town of Puddleby-onMarsh, Doctor Dolittle lives with his animal friends. One day an African monkey seeks out the world-famous good doctor - there is a terrible illness afflicting his cousins, and Dolittle is the only one who can save them! As Doctor Dolittle and his friends set sail, Colin becomes more and more enthralled with his father's story. He begs Lofting to put him in the tale so that he can go on the voyage too, and soon First Mate Colin joins Dolittle's travels. But when Lofting is injured in battle and is unable to write to his son, it's up to Colin to decide how the saga ends. Doctor Dolittle is an enchanting musical about communication and the power of storytelling.

Freud's Last Session

Synopsis:
This new play by Mark St. Germain centers on legendary psychiatrist Dr. Sigmund Freud, who invites the young, rising academic star C.S. Lewis to his home in London. Lewis, expecting to be called on the carpet for satirizing Freud in a recent book, soon realizes Freud has a much more significant agenda. On the day England enters World War II, Freud and Lewis clash on the existence of God, love, sex, and the meaning of life-only two weeks before Freud chooses to take his own.

Gifts Of the Magi, The

Gifts Of the Magi, The
It is Christmas in New York, but for two young lovers, Jim and Della, the prospects are bleak, as both are out of work and penniless. But as those familiar with the famous O. Henry story are aware, their dilEmma is solved when both part with their most precious possessions (she her beautiful long hair, he his heirloom pocket watch) in order to buy presents for each other thereby creating, at least for a magical moment, an aura of warmth and giving in the cold, impersonal winter city. In addition to their story there are glimpses of various city folk (played by the same two performers) going about their holiday business, and the hilarious plight of a cheerful bum named Soapy, who wants only to get arrested so he can spend the night in a cozy cell, all gracefully enhanced by tuneful songs and neatly tied together by a newsboy-narrator, Willy, who adds his own melodious contribution and informative observations to the delightful proceedings.

Music by Randy Courts; lyrics by Randy Courts And Mark St Germain; book by Mark St Germain. Based on short stories by O Henry.

Jack's Holiday

Jack's Holiday
The 1921 boast of Police Chief Thomas Byrnes that Jack the Ripper would be captured within thirty six hours in New York City sets off a series of murders and catches a young reporter in the midst of them. Based on the premise that Jack the Ripper actually crossed the ocean, as chronicled in the newspapers of the day, Jack's Holiday delves into the nature of evil and the responsibility of the press while holding a mirror up to our time.

Johnny Pye

Synopsis:
Johnny is alone in the world when the Foolkiller, a Grim Reaper-type character, "collects" his father, Mr. Pye. Although the townspeople try to find someone to look after him, Johnny ends up running away, fleeing Martinsville and the Foolkiller, but not before he promises to write to his childhood sweetheart, Suzy. Johnny moves from career to career - from doctor to artist to preacher - before joining the army. Johnny continues to encounter the Foolkiller during his travels, and while fighting in World War II, the Foolkiller almost claims him. Instead, however, he leaves Johnny with a riddle, "How can a man be a human being and not a fool?" If Johnny can solve it, the Foolkiller will let him live forever. Johnny rises from his sick bed and hurries back to Martinsville just in time to prevent Suzy from marrying Wilbur Wilberforce, an old rival for Suzy's affections. Instead, Johnny and Suzy marry, and Wilbur is out of the picture. Life with Suzy is wonderful and they are raising a family, but Johnny puzzles over the Foolkiller's riddle. He is unable to come up with an answer, and, as time passes, must see the deaths of his oldest son and Suzy. Eventually in his old age Johnny becomes friends with Wilbur, who inadvertently provides him with a clue to the riddle Johnny has so long been trying to solve. When the Foolkiller comes for him, Johnny has the answer, but it provides him with little solace, and Johnny lets the Foolkiller take him, so that he can be reunited with his beloved Suzy.

Out of Gas On Lovers Leap

Synopsis:
It is the night of their high-school graduation and Myst and Grouper, two bright, well-to-do teenagers, have driven to the local lovers leap for a private celebration. Myst is seventeen, and the daughter of a fading rock star of dubious morals; Grouper is also seventeen, and the son of an ambitious, self-important U.S. Senator. Myst is determined to deprive Grouper of his virginity, but he wants to wait until they are married and settled into domesticity. As they drink beer, smoke pot and engage in sharply amusing, yet disheartening, interplay, it becomes increasingly evident that they are very lost young souls whose ideals have been sadly eroded by the shoddy, self-centered example of their elders. In the end they do make love, but it proves to be only a brief respite before their pasts encroach on the present and, inevitably, overwhelm it with terrible and heartrending results
