Synopsis

Set on a Friday night in an alternate suburban reality,  the writer of Almost, Maine, John Cariani, brings us an evening of nine bittersweet romantic comedies.

It seems that “happily ever after” may not be in the cards for all relationships, but brief successes may just make the…

Based on the true story of two actors who hired themselves out to the Long Beach Police Department in 1914 to entrap “social vagrants” in public restrooms, this highly theatrical tour-de-force brings to life a little known episode in Long Beach history and the history of LGBTQ rights.  As these two actors become absorbed within their play-within-a-play, they explore sexual identity, institutional corruption, self-deception, and the mysteries of the craft of the theatre. This timely look at another time warns…

There, attended upon by a daughter, a magical sprite, and a deformed servant, the…
