Pete ‘n’ Keely

book by James Hindman, music by Patrick Brady, lyrics by Mark Waldrop
July 09 - August 31 2014

REGIONAL PREMIERE


It’s 1968 and America’s singing sweethearts, Pete and Keely, are reunited for a live television special. There’s just one catch—they’ve been bitter enemies for years. As they reprise songs from their heyday and dredge up hilarious moments from their turbulent past, they find themselves back on the rollercoaster that got them where they are today...divorced!

Filled with beloved musical standards plus a host of original tunes, this jukebox fantasy recalls the innocence and spectacular talent of 1960s television variety shows.

Full Gallop

by Mark Hampton & Mary Louise Wilson
August 06 - September 14 2014

Back by popular demand!

Sally Edmundson returns as former Vogue editor Diana Vreeland, the eccentric, exuberant fashion guru who was an icon of American style for five decades. When Vreeland is fired from the magazine, she plans an impromptu dinner party in hopes of coaxing an affluent acquaintance to underwrite her new venture. Brutally honest and wickedly funny, Vreeland marshals her allies and moves ahead full gallop!

Directed by Kenn McLaughlin

Starring Sally Edmundson

"...oodles of style, plus humor and theatricality...Full Gallop projects Vreeland's irresistible oomph and joie de vivre while giving Edmundson the acting opportunity of a lifetime. ...Edmundson's Vreeland is absolutely fabulous fun."
- Houston Chronicle

Marie Antoinette

by David Adjmi
October 08 - November 02 2014

REGIONAL PREMIERE

Produced in cooperation with the University of Houston School of Theatre & Dance

How’s a queen to keep her head in the middle of a revolution? David Adjmi’s oh-so-modern Queen Marie delights her confidantes with wild whims and inspires her subjects with three-foot wigs and extravagant haute couture. But as economic tensions rise and the chants of the mobs grow louder, Marie’s place in the world is rapidly going out of style. History gets an of-the-moment makeover in this raw, fantastical and fiercely funny play.

Stupid Fucking Bird

by Aaron Posner, sort of adapted from 'The Seagull' by Anton Chekov
March 18 - April 12 2015

REGIONAL PREMIERE

Nominee: Steinberg/ATCA New Play Award, eight Helen Hayes Awards

Love, death, beauty, despair and one unfortunate seagull collide in this unabashedly provocative riff on Chekov’s classic. Con is a burgeoning playwright in love with his ingénue; his mother, an aging actress, is involved with a famous novelist; the novelist, in turn, is increasingly enchanted with Con’s girlfriend; and everyone else suffers on the sidelines. Chekhov’s characters still ruminate on love, revolution and the pursuit of happiness, but this time convention gets shot to hell.

REGIONAL PREMIERE

Rosemary Dunn is an English widow who cooks for the school lunch service and communes with the spirits of dead composers (Liszt is her favorite).

A comic drama inspired by true events, The Spiritualist explores the tensions between art and commerce, fact and faith.
