A View from the Bridge

A View from the Bridge
by Arthur Miller

Directed by Mark Liebert

Studio Players mount a new production of Arthur Miller’s timeless piece originally staged in 1955. Set in a poor working class neighborhood, Miller's play opens a Pandora’s box and out pours a smorgasbord of social issues including illegal immigration, incest, organized crime, homophobia and dysfunctional families. He was crying out for recognition and analytic inspection rather than psycho-sexual romanticism of still another misunderstood victim. The issues have not gone away. It is time to look again.

Picasso at the Lapin Agile

Picasso at the Lapin Agile
by Steve Martin

Directed by Janet Sales

A guy walks into a bar. Okay, so it’s Einstein. A young Einstein, before his big Theory. He meets a young Picasso, before his famous Rose Period. In Steve Martin’s long-running comedy, these two geniuses and a host of other characters, including… Elvis Presley?… ask the question: which will have the biggest impact on humanity—Art, Science, or Pop Culture? If it sounds a little wild and crazy, that's because it is, as Martin sprinkles a little philosophy between jokes that fly fast and furious. See for yourself why this comedy has broken attendance records Off-Broadway and around the country.

of Robin Hood
by Mary Lynn Dobson

Directed by Dan Willis

It sure is hard to be humble when you’re a swashbuckling, egocentric super-hero. But our gallant guy in green tries his best as he swaggers through, a frantically funny Monty Pythonesque retelling of the classic. Combine him with an expandable band of spoon-wielding Merry Men whose collective IQs equal six and you’ve got an hysterical jaunt through Sherwood Forest that you soon won’t forget. Sure to be fun for the entire family.
