Book by George Abbott & Douglass Wallop
Lyrics & Music by Richard Adler & Jerry Ross
Faust meets baseball in this devilishly clever and musically delightful send-up of love and the true American pastime. When Joe Boyd sells his soul to the devil for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory against the New York Yankees, things don’t go quite as planned. Fun, fast-paced, and irreverently witty, this winner of 7 Tony awards is a true American classic.

Note: no performance July 4
By Neil Simon
Considered Neil Simon’s funniest play, this love letter to his real-life early career as a TV writer catapults a 1950s writers’ room into a comedy fray. Locked in a battle with TV execs who fear the show’s humor is too sophisticated for middle America, the writers wrangle over their craft, hurling snappy one-liners while reflecting political and social issues of the times—then and now.
This performance is intended for mature audiences. It is not considered appropriate for children due to strong language and adult content.
By George S. Kaufman & Moss Hart
Life as they know it will never be the same for Mr. and Mrs. Stanley once radio celebrity Sheridan Whiteside arrives for dinner. Who knew there’d be penguins in the library and convicts in the foyer—and a whole lot more? Brilliant and witty, madcap and zany, this timeless classic combines the best of comedic literature with perfectly-crafted characters for one of the wildest romps ever in American theatre.
