His name is Woodson Bull III, but you can call him “Third.” And Professor Laurie Jameson is disinclined to like his jockish attitude. Believing that Third’s sophisticated essay on King Lear could not possibly have been written by such a student, Professor Jameson reports his plagiarism to the college’s Committee of Academic Standards. But is her accusation justified? Or is she casting Third as the villain in her own struggle with her relationships, her age and the increasingly polarized political environment?
“Wasserstein’s new play—her best in years …[a] story of a woman’s self-reassessment as she heads into the third part of her life.” — Variety

To make matters even more desperate, Casey is fired from his gig as an Elvis impersonator in a run-down, small-town Florida bar.

Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ’em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the hilarious hit musical that’s anything but Grimm. Forget the princesses you think you know – the original storybook heroines have come back to life to set the record straight. After multiple sold-out runs nationwide, these royal renegades tossed off their tiaras to bring their hilariously subversive, not-for-the-kiddies musical to you – and what you thought about princesses will never be the same!

Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who’s made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.
“Wonderful… poignant, brave and almost subversive in its focus on what it really means to be down on your luck.” – NY Post
