Short
Synopsis

It is Christmas in New York, but for two young lovers, Jim and Della, the prospects are bleak, as both are out of work and penniless. But as those familiar with the famous O. Henry story are aware, their dilemma is solved when both part with their most precious possessions (she her beautiful long hair, he his heirloom pocket watch) in order to buy presents for each other thereby creating, at least for a magical moment, an aura of warmth and giving in the cold, impersonal winter city. In addition to their story there are glimpses of various city folk (played by the same two performers) going about their holiday business, and the hilarious plight of a cheerful bum named Soapy, who wants only to get arrested so he can spend the night in a cozy cell, all gracefully enhanced by tuneful songs and neatly tied together by a newsboy-narrator, Willy, who adds his own melodious contribution and informative observations to the delightful proceedings.

A heart-warming, captivating musical treat, drawn from two short stories by the immortal O. Henry. First presented by New York's Lamb's Theatre Company, the work is easy to stage, warmed by sentiment and humor, filled with lilting songs, and certain to please audiences of all ages. "…slick family entertainment…the show ticks along like clockwork…" —NY Times. "…crisp and entertaining…" —NY Daily News. "…a bright and beguiling musical…calculated to bring a laugh to the throat and a misty tear to the eye of theatregoers, young or old." —NY Tribune.

Synopsis

GIRLFRIENDS is set in Norfolk in 1941 and takes a heartfelt look at the many issues faced by the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force in the Second World War.

“It’s the most inspiring musical revival of the year... largely due to the emotional force of Goodall’s yearning, aching melodies that float and linger in the air and memory.  Goodall’s music is so exhilaratingly good at establishing its atmosphere of nervous anxiety and simmering personal tensions on a World War II air force base” The Stage Reviews, Mark Shenton

Goblin Market Fantasy/Adventure View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

Two proper Victorian sisters, both now grown women and mothers, return to their childhood nursery to relive the haunting memories of their youth. Magically, they are transported back to their girlhood, as their nursery becomes a woodland glen peopled by bizarre goblins who entice them with luscious fruits and promises of unimagined ecstasies. One of the sisters, Laura, partakes of the forbidden offerings, while her sibling, Lizzie, bargains desperately with the fey creatures to save her from inexorably falling under their spell. Blending music, poetry and entrancing imagery, the play is a dazzling journey through the psyches of the two sisters as they struggle to regain the present and to reconcile the fervent, erotic yearnings of their adolescence with the matter-of-fact world that they now inhabit. Happily they succeed, but their voyage in and out of the past—and through the labyrinths of their vivid imaginations—weaves an enchanted spell that will linger long in the memory.

A brilliantly atmospheric, totally original "mini-musical" which probes into the sexually charged fantasies of two sisters who relive their childhood experiences in an imaginary world peopled by seductive goblins. Originally produced Off-Off-Broadway, the play went on to a long and successful run at the renowned Circle in the Square Downtown. "…an entrancing expedition to 'Those pleasant days long gone/Of not-returning time.' " —NY Times. "…an absolutely gorgeous piece of Victorian erotica." —NY Post. "GOBLIN MARKET is a spellbinding, highly imaginative mini-musical…" —Variety. "…one of the season's few genuine successes. It's certainly in a class by itself." —NY Daily News.

Gone Missing Comedy/Satire View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

A wry and whimsical documentary musical of loss devised from interviews with real-life New Yorkers by The Civilians, the acclaimed New York-based company. This collection of very personal accounts of things "gone missing"—everything from keys, personal identification and a Gucci pump to family heirlooms, your dog and your mind—creates a unique tapestry of the ways in which we deal with loss in our lives. A flexible company of six performs more than thirty characters, intertwining these stories of lost objects with tales from some unusual "finders," ranging from a retired NYPD cop to a pet psychic. Set against eclectic and tuneful songs by Michael Friedman, GONE MISSING is cabaret-theater about the little things in life seen largely.

"This delightful comic revue…is fresh, breezy and very funny indeed, a perfect summer entertainment." —NY Times. "GONE MISSING is not merely a witty, quick-footed and entertaining evening of theater; it is also a finely tuned inquiry into the nature of memory that manages to be forward-looking at the same time. GONE MISSING's links between past and present provide clear evidence of evolution in the world of modern theater. Miss it and weep." —Time Out NY. "…engrossing and inventive. And it delivers a stunning payoff in its final scene…both a kick in the gut and a philosophical conundrum. It's the kind of conclusion that lingers in the mind long after the show that offered it has vanished." —Variety. "A startling combination executed with great panache, satirical acumen and covert tenderness." —Independent (London).
