Six characters, three stories, and only the mysterious moon floating through her magical phases sees them all. One life-changing coincidence later, their journeys begin that curious braiding that can connect each of us to all of us, and make every strand stronger. Together and separately they search—for their destiny, for forgiveness, for acceptance, and finally, perhaps, just for a moment’s peace together. While they search, old tales are told, folk remedies are shared, and always, the Baby glows.
Music and lyrics by Frank Loesser; Book by Jo Swerling & Abe Burrows; Based on story & characters by Damon Runyon

I want to figure some things out, that’s all. I love you, so I need to understand. Why do some get well and others, not? Is it a chance, or a choice? And that patient who became the healer for her world—how did she do that? What is the connection between treatment and getting better? And Mother, will you please, for one minute, just shut up! Sorry, I do love you, but they don’t need a drink, they don’t need a snack, they just need to help me. I’m trying to figure this out and you’re so distracting. I know I can do this, I know how to do it, and as soon as I figure it out, I’ll be able to…

The Boy had no home, no friends. He even got his name by accident. All the grownups he knew lied (no wonder he won’t grow up!). The Girl is an apprentice Starcatcher who tells great bedtime stories. They share the starstuff adventure with pirates, mermaids, islanders who hate the English but love gourmet pasta, and Queen Victoria (God Save Her!). Come along while we turn the story you’ve known all your life into a whole new-yet-familiar adventure.

Simple conversations, complex communication; minor irritations, major confrontations; everyday affection, transcendent love. Winner of two Drama Desk Special Awards and nominated for three Drama League Awards in 2014, Will Eno’s poignant look at everyday people is full of gentle humor and wry commentary on how we deal with our own mortality. The Joneses (both couples) are doing their very best to navigate modern life in all its glorious everyday chaos, while fighting for the quiet time and inner space to make sense of it all. This play will warm your heart and break your heart, showing that there is somebody’s hero in each of us, even though none of us can be heroic all the time. And as long as we stick by each other, we don’t have to be.

Think “Downton Abbey” with the knives out. The master satirist of the Victorian era skewers the upper crust of British society as they indulge their penchant for carving each other to pieces. This is hypocrisy with a Public School accent, mercilessly exposed by a keen observer. Join us for this brilliantly acerbic variation on a universal theme that resonates across time, class, and national borders—a classic play, full of Wilde’s signature wit, wisdom, and a surprising snap.
