When the low-born Monty Navarro finds out that he’s ninth in line for an earldom in the lofty D’Ysquith family, he sets out to speed up the line of succession by using a great deal of charm… and a dash of murder. Can he knock off his unsuspecting relatives without being caught and become the ninth Earl of Highhurst? And what of love? Because murder isn’t the only thing on Monty’s mind. The 2014 Tony winner for Best Musical, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder is a knock-‘em-dead uproarious romp filled with unforgettable music and madcap characters that is certain to have audiences dying with laughter.

Ken Ludwig’s The Game’s Afoot is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

Real-life Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for playing Sherlock Holmes on stage, has invited his fellow cast-members and closest friends to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry on Christmas Eve 1936. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous and a little zany. It’s then up to Gillette, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. Mystery and hilarity in equal parts ensue in this murderously funny whodunit production that will keep you guessing until the final curtain.

Newly Adapted by Wendy Kesselman
Directed by Gloria DuGan
Produced by Diane P. Mullens

The Diary of Anne Frank is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York

The Diary of Anne Frank is one of the most famous and haunting stories to emerge from the 20th Century. Inside a secret attic annex in Amsterdam, 13-year-old Anne and seven other Jews hide as the Nazis deport the Jews of Holland to their deaths. For more than two years, all that will stand between them and the concentration camps is their trust in one another and the bravery of those harboring them. This powerful new adaptation captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence while Anne’s transcendent spirit is revealed as she voices her belief, “in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.”

Now, she just has to find out who he is! Set on a Greek island paradise and inspired by the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs, Sophie’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago. Mamma Mia! is packed with 22 ABBA hits, including “Dancing Queen,” “Super Trouper,” “Take A Chance on Me,” and more.
