The Whipping Man

by Matthew Lopez
April 30 - May 25 2014

At the close of the Civil War, a wounded Jewish Confederate soldier returns to Richmond to find his family home in ruins, inhabited only by two former slaves also raised by his family as Jews. During a cobbled-together Passover Seder, the three men grapple with their new relationships to each other and unravel a tangle of family secrets that could cost each of them his freedom.

Xanadu

book by Douglas Carter Beane, music & lyrics by Jeff Lynne & John Farrar
May 21 - June 29 2014

Inspiration and love collide in Xanadu, a hilarious, roller-skating musical romp that slyly questions the role of art in pop culture. Based on the 1980 cult classic film and its unforgettable soundtrack, Xanadu overflows with joyous high-spirited fun as Kira, a beautiful Greek muse, descends from Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California, to inspire struggling artist Sonny to create the pinnacle of artistic achievement—the Roller Disco! But when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters conspire to create endlessly entertaining mayhem.

Directed by Mitchell Greco (Life Could Be a Dream)

Starring Holland Vavra (The Marvelous Wonderettes series, Panto Goldilocks, Steel Magnolias, The Great American Trailer Park Musical)
