Leading Ladies

by Ken Ludwig

May 26 to June 17

Leading Ladies is consistently funny — indeed, increasingly hilarious as it progresses. While all the nods to Some Like It Hot, Twelfth Night and even Charley’s Aunt may smack of piggybacking, the play ultimately celebrates the shared spirit of mischief and fun that connects cross-dressing comedy from The Bard to Tootsie.” — The Houston Chronicle.

Directed by Jennifer Gimzewski.

by Edward Albee

July 7 to 29

Winner of both the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play and the 1962–63 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play. Albee’s masterwork is a towering classic of American theater that was stunningly denied the Pulitzer Prize for Drama due to the committee’s objection to its mature themes.
