After six years away, prodigal daughter Brooke Wyeth returns to her Palm Springs Desert home to celebrate the holidays and announce plans to publish her childhood memoir – complete with revelations of deep family secrets. Retired ambassador dad, savvy mom, rehabbing aunt and ne'er-do-well brother team up to stop her and the joys of the family reunion quickly unravel in a surprising twist.

Written by Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright, Jon Robin Baitz, this searing comedy-drama with banter that dazzles was described by the New York Times as "one of the most satisfying grown-up plays of the decade."

Winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Play and The Drama League Award for Best Play.

Enchanting and inspiring, the beloved book by Frances Hodgson Burnett comes to life in this beautiful Tony-Award® winning musical, The Secret Garden.

Here is the perfect story for the holiday season about the power of love to open even the most closed heart.

An orphaned girl, dubbed plain and average by her caretakers, transforms a dead and wasted garden into a paradise where hearts can grow and miracles can happen. With a soaring score by Lucy Simon and book by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Marsha Norman, The Secret Garden is a wonderful way to embrace the child within us all!

What do wells in Africa, a sperm bank, figs and string theory have in common?

They're all a part of the wonderfully zany world of Sherry Kramer's delightful comedy, How Water Behaves.

It all begins when sweet Nan and her out-of-work webmaster hubby, Steve, realize they can't afford to keep up the extravagant gift giving that has become their family's tradition. In an effort to make everyone happy, they announce that they have made a gift to a charity in everyone's name. Except it's a fictitious charity. No problem — until the website that Steve creates to seal the deal becomes prey to cyberspace hijinks, with deliciously funny and unpredictable results.

This favorite of last season's NEXT ACT! New Play Summit 2 is sure to be a laugh riot!

At the turn of the last century, Florence Foster Jenkins was a New York phenomenon where she rose to fame for her annual sold-out recitals at the Ritz Carlton and Carnegie Hall. Crowds went wild when Mrs. Jenkins tackled the most difficult arias in opera, festooned in fabulous costumes.

The only trouble was: Mrs. Jenkins could not sing. Not a note. Still, Florence, a YouTube sensation far ahead of her time, could not be deterred from her dedication to music and voice lessons with her accomplished and compassionate accompanist, Cosme McMoon.

Souvenir chronicles the sidesplitting journey of Mrs. Jenkins and Mr. McMoon to Carnegie Hall. A musical odd-couple that will have you laughing – till you cry!
