AUG / SEP

Susan & Ronald Frankel Theater

by DOUGLAS LYONS
directed by ZHALION LEVINGSTON

If your ex wanted to meet up again, would you? Previously engaged, Jada and Dallas reunite for dinner to hash out the good, the bad, and the ugly from their romantic past. Despite the intrusion of sassy waiters, complicated memories, and their best efforts to keep things casual, the estranged couple find themselves cornered by the truth.  From the author and director of CHICKEN & BISCUITS (DOUGLAS LYONS & ZHAILON LEVINGSTON), this world premiere play is a hilarious and sweet open letter to love found, lost, and possibly reignited.  

This new romantic comedy stars three-time Tony Award nominee KARA YOUNG (MCC’s ALL THE NATALIE PORTMANS, PURLIE VICTORIOUS), BIKO EISEN-MARTIN (MCC’s soft) and MICHAEL RISHAWN (AIN’T NO MO’).

The Newman Mills Theater

written & directed by ROBERT O’HARA

Here’s the game… Phones Out.  Face Up.  Volume High. Every text, every email, every call must be shared aloud. That’s what a group of long-time friends gather to play on the night of the eclipse. With the cocktails flowing among grownups who refuse to grow up, outrageous secrets and skeletons begin to emerge… SHIT. MEET. FAN. Are they ready for the ensuing chaos? Are you?

The mayhem unfolds in real time in this World Premiere uproarious new satire written and directed by Tony Award® nominee ROBERT O’HARA (SLAVE PLAY, MCC’S BLKS, BOOTYCANDY).
