Playwright Alex Dennison invites actors, a producer, and a director for a first reading of his new play. As the artists gather, they are surprised to see that Alex has assembled the identical team as his last play which ended rather abruptly when his leading lady and fiancée was found dead from an apparent suicide on opening night. Quickly, the invitees soon discover that they may not be reading a new play, but instead trying to verify alibis for Alex’s fiancee’s murder. As everyone reads their part in the new play, startling connections to the murder begin to unfold and the growing tension reaches the boiling point with surprising revelations. Based upon the 1982 film featuring Robert Preston and Lynn Redgrave, “Rehearsal for Murder,” as any good mystery, will surely have you wondering, “Who dunnit?”

Whatever happened to…? When a silent movie star is discarded by tinsel town and replaced by “talkies,” her career may fade…but not her light. Sunset Boulevard zooms in for a close-up on Norma Desmond, electrifying star of yesteryear. With the help and inspiration of Joe Gillis, a struggling screenwriter, Norma sets down a path to remind Hollywood and the world that she is still big– “it’s the pictures that got small.” Winner of seven Tony Awards, Sunset Boulevard combines the classic movie feel with what TIME magazine calls “Lloyd Webber’s most artfully constructed score.” The hit musical has engulfed audiences around the world. Lights, camera, action!

RCP is proud to bring Fox on the Fairway back to the DC Metro area after first premiering at Signature in October of 2010. The stuffy atmosphere of a private golf club is the perfect setting for Ludwig’s madcap adventure featuring mistaken identities, slamming doors, and hysterical hi-jinx. The Washington Examiner stated, “Ken Ludwig has a wicked sense of comedic anarchy, giving his characters such zany idiosyncrasies that they soar to dizzying heights!”. We know how much you enjoyed Lend Me A Tenor and we are confident you will agree with the New Jersey star Ledger that, “The Fox on the Fairway is phenomenally funny!”
