Reefer Madness

Book by Kevin Murphy & Dan Studney
Music by Dan Studney
Lyrics by Kevin Murphy
Directed by Kenny Moten

Playing Late Fall 2024 at The Lincoln Center Magnolia Theatre

Inspired by the original 1936 film of the same name, this raucous musical comedy takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the hysteria caused when clean-cut kids fall prey to marijuana, leading them on a hysterical downward spiral filled with evil jazz music, sex and violence.


The 39 Steps

Adapted by Patrick Barlow
From the novel by John Buchan
From the movie by Alfred Hitchcock
Directed by Jessica Jackson

Playing Winter 2025 at The Lincoln Center Magnolia Theatre

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This two-time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of four), an onstage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance!

The Minutes

By Tracy Letts
Directed by Sydney Parks Smith

Playing Spring 2025 in The Lincoln Center Magnolia Theatre

A City Council meeting held in the fictional town of Big Cherry. Mr. Peel, the newest member of Big Cherry's town council, arrives at the meeting to find that Mr. Carp, a fellow member, is no longer on the council. Having missed last week's meeting, Mr. Peel has no explanation for Carp's sudden departure and all his attempts to get to the bottom of his disappearance prove ineffective. "This scathing new comedy about small-town politics and real-world power, from the author of August: Osage County, exposes the ugliness behind some of our most closely-held American narratives while asking each of us what we would do to keep from becoming history's losers."

Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice

By Kate Hamill
Directed by Heather Ostberg Johnson

Playing Summer 2025 in the Park at Columbine Health Systems

This isn’t your grandmother’s Austen! Bold, surprising, boisterous, and timely, this Pride and Prejudice for a new era explores the absurdities and thrills of finding your perfect (or imperfect) match in life. The outspoken Lizzy Bennet is determined to never marry, despite mounting pressure from society. But can she resist love, especially when that vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aggravating Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn?! Literature’s greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical, or so full of life than it does in this effervescent adaptation. Because what turns us into greater fools…than the high-stakes game of love?

In the midst of a political crisis at the border, two estranged siblings find themselves running against each other in a crucial Texas Senate election.

But when Maria discovers a life-ruining, campaign-ending secret of her brother’s, she is faced with a heart-wrenching moral conflict. October Surprise is a new play about family and morality through the lens of American politics, that asks the question—how far are you willing to go for what you believe in?
