About the Shows

THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES

THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES  

This smash off-Broadway hit takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy, and Suzy, four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! As we learn about their lives and loves, the girls serenade us with classic ‘50s hits including “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” and “Lipstick on Your Collar.”  In act two, the Wonderettes reunite to take the stage and perform at their ten-year reunion. We learn about the highs and lows the girls have experienced in the past decade and are charmed to find that no matter what life throws their way, they will conquer it together. Featuring over 30 classic ’50s and ’60s hits, The Marvelous Wonderettes will keep you smiling in this must-take musical trip down memory lane!

“You won’t find a more delightful girl group! These irrepressible, bubbly Wonderettes are singing their hearts out in this charming, fast-paced musical. Beautiful singing, well-honed timing, often poignant, and highly entertaining.” – The Associated Press

“One irresistible musical! An utter charm bomb!” –The New York Times

“Don’t buy a ticket—buy two! It’s a show you’ll want to see twice.” – Back Stage

“Iconic ‘50s pop hits shine in this bubbly musical.” – New York Magazine

Baby with the Bathwater

BABY WITH THE BATHWATER 

Helen and John Dingleberry are woefully unprepared for parenthood.  Rearing their child in a wildly unorthodox way, this naive young couple creates a lifetime of cosmic and comic confusions in this razor-sharp satire lampooning the pitfalls of parenthood. This classic Durang dives face first into the absurd waters of how, for better or worse, family makes us who we are.

"Christopher Durang is one of the funniest dramatists alive, and one of the most sharply satiric. This time, parenthood is the target."  — The New Yorker

"…a typical example of his dangerous wit and anarchic sense of humor." — NY Post.

"In Baby with the Bathwater, [Durang] manages to combine all three modes farce, satire, good-humored wackiness … Durang keeps laughter bubbling... We laugh and gasp at the same time." — Wall Street Journal

I Love You

I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE

The Second-Longest Running Off-Broadway Musical

Outer Critics Circle Award Nominee for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical

Love in all its glory is celebrated in this tuneful and witty musical comedy revue—from dating and waiting to love and marriage, and on through the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car, and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. Revealing the joys and frustrations of relationships—at nearly every stage of life—has never been so fun.

“So smartly conceived…catchy tunes and witty lyrics.” – Variety

"Hilarious! The most entertaining show on or off Broadway!"— Gannett Newspapers

"If this show were a blind date, you'd feel relieved, grateful and pleasantly surprised."— Newsday
