Inspired by true events, Ben Butler is a historically hilarious comedy about a runaway slave demanding sanctuary at Fort Monroe. Set at the dawn of the Civil War, Gen. Benjamin Butler faces an impossible moral dilemma: follow the law or alter the course of U.S. history. It’s a battle of wit and wordplay that is “simultaneously thought-provoking and sidesplitting.” TheatreMania

Hailed as one of Agatha Christie’s best-known stories and voted “best crime novel ever” by the British Crime Writers’ Association! This suspenseful whodunnit features a mysterious cast of suspects guarding secrets about blackmail and murder – and only the great Hercule Poirot can solve the case. This brand-new stage adaptation comes from the mind of Mark Shanahan, author of last season’s A Sherlock Carol.

The stage is set for hilarity in this off-beat musical-murder-mystery-farce! When hapless English shoe salesman, Harry Witherspoon, learns he’s heir to a distant uncle’s fortune of rare diamonds, he’ll do anything to get his hands on the jewels – even if it means wheeling his uncle’s corpse around Monte Carlo for one last vacation. Meanwhile, a host of shady characters (including a jilted mob wife, a dogged do-gooder, and an optometrist) are hot on his trail!

In this touching time-travel love story from the author of “Becky’s New Car,” Robert returns to Dublin to reunite with the woman who captured his heart thirty-five years earlier. Dancing backward through time, Robert and Cait retrace their steps and discover their younger selves – Robbie and Caithleen. Told with wit, humor, and heartache, Bloomsday is a buoyant, moving story about making the most of the present before it becomes the past.

Celebrate our very own Sunshine State by traveling east to Boca Raton – and a retirement community where the lawns and residents are perfectly maintained. This brand-new not-to-be-missed comedy follows a group of retirees who – between golf, bridge, and Botox – can be found dishing gossip and living it up like they’re teenagers again. Through it all, they find the key to happiness lies within their own community.

VENUS IN FUR By David Ives

ArtStage Studio Theatre

Sexy, provocative, and witty, Venus in Fur turns up the heat on sexual power play and is sure to charm and mesmerize. When Vanda arrives several hours late to her audition for a play based on a nineteenth-century erotic novel, the director is less than impressed.  Vanda’s masterful performance, however, flips the script and the audition turns into a tango for dominance between actress and director.
