Richard Hannay was not expecting any of this. He merely went to see a show, with no idea he would end up being drawn into a vast conspiracy, handcuffed to a femme fatale, and chased all around the English countryside. Cling to the edge of your seat and prepare to laugh yourself silly as Hannay tries to solve the mystery of The 39 Steps in this madcap mashup of suspense and comedy, based on the same novel as Alfred Hitchcock's famous movie, with just four actors portraying dozens of different characters!

Ladies and gentlemen, step right up! See Siamese twins go from penniless freak show performers to vaudeville stars! Based on the true story of conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton, Side Show offers a complex look at love, race, and societal expectations in 1930s America through the eyes of its most marginalized outcasts. One plus one equals three in this heartfelt musical about what it means to always have someone by your side.

There was a hermit at Sidley Park. And a genius. And a poet or two. And did someone fight a duel? Or not? In Arcadia, two stories overlap in the same room, almost 200 years apart. In what many regard as his finest play, Tom Stoppard (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, The Real Inspector Hound) bends time and space to bring abstract ideas of math, philosophy, and historical inquiry to vivid life, and irrevocably mixes comedy and tragedy. "You cannot stir things apart."
