221 Farmers Alley

by Lucas Hnath

From Tony-Nominated author Lucas Hnath, called "one of the brightest new voices of his generation" by The New York Times, comes the hottest new American play in recent memory, The Christians.  Pastor Paul has spent nearly 20 years successfully growing his church from a tiny storefront to a glitzy megachurch.  But today he will give a sermon that's about to shake the foundation of everything he's built - and creates a divide among his constituents.

The Little Theatre on Oakland Drive

by Terrence McNally

Love fast-paced comedy?  With a dash of farce and a dollop of slapstick, it's opening night for one of the biggest plays on Broadway.  The show's director, producer, author and star are in a panic.  What will the reviewers think?  Will the show flop or flourish?  In this hilarious and biting take on modern show business, nothing is out of bounds and no celebrity is safe from its satirical wrath!  It's Only a Play takes you backstage like never before with outlandish humor and wry wit.
