Collected Stories by Daniel Margulies
Directed by Christian Lebano
Starring Claudette Sutherland and Alexandra Wright
 
The conflict between the established artist and the adulatory fan who becomes a protégé, disciple, colleague and friend—and finally threatening rival—is the story of COLLECTED STORIES.  Here two worlds clash in age-old dueling, led up to by great mutual emotional investment, and all the more bitter for it.
 
"As usual, Margulies holds the rich ore of his material up to the light so that it sends beams in every direction…always fluid and lively, the play is thick with ideas, like a stockpot of good stew." —Village Voice

September 24 - Butterflies are Free
by Leonard Gershe
directed by Bob Hakman
 
Young Don Baker, the hero of his mother's children's book series, "Donny Dark" has been blind since birth, his overprotective mother following his every move. Don finally decides to take his own apartment in Manhattan and pursue his songwriting ambitions. When she meets his kooky neighbor, sexy actress Jill, Mrs. Baker's controlling instincts go into overdrive with hilariously touching results.

"A lovely play. It is funny when it means to be, sentimental when it is so inclined, and heartwarming." - New York Daily News
