That Golden Girls Show!
A Puppet Parody

February 5, 2021
7:30pm

 

Picture it! Miami, 1985...

'That Golden Girls Show!' is a brand-new show that parodies classic Golden Girls moments -with puppets!

Get set for an evening of cheesecake, laughter, jazzercise, shoulder pads, sex, and the elegant art of the quick-witted put-down.

From Sophia's get-rich-quick schemes to Rose's tales from St Olaf, Blanche's insatiable hunt for men and the Fountain of Youth, and Dorothy's daily struggle to make sense of her life and keep her roommates in check.

Devoted fans will fondly remember our four girls from Miami, and for the first-timers, this will be a joyful introduction to the brilliance of that television series.

“Re-visit the Golden Girls as feisty puppets!” - New York Post

“Golden Girls fans have a treat in store. Chockablock with funny lines that echo the series" - The Huffington Post

“Hillarious!" - Entertainment WEEKLY

“Hilarious! It's as bitty, catty and familiar. It is funny, heartwarming and nostalgic rolled into one" - Times Square Chronicles

 


 

The Capitol Steps

March 13, 2O21
7:30pm

 

The Capitol Steps were born in December 1981 when some staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning entertainment for a Christmas party. Ronald Reagan was President when the Steps began, so co-founders Elaina Newport, Bill Strauss, and Jim Aidala figured that if entertainers could become politicians, then politicians could become entertainers!

Most cast members have worked on Capitol Hill; some for Democrats, some for Republicans, and others for politicians who firmly straddle the fence. No matter who holds office, there's never a shortage of material.

"They're the best. There's no one like them, no one in their league."
— Larry King, CNN

"The Capitol Steps make it easier to leave public life."
— Former President George H. W. Bush


 

HYPROV:
Improv Under Hypnosis

June 4, 2021
7:30pm

 

From the brilliant minds of improv and comedy legend Colin Mochrie and Master, Hypnotist Asad Mecci comes a brand new, mind-blowing, jaw-dropping, side-splitting show. Hypnosis and Improv -- two art forms that have mystified and entertained fans, skeptics and everything in between for decades worldwide – come together as two masters of their crafts unite for a totally unique comedy experience -- HYPROV: Improv Under Hypnosis.

Twenty random volunteers from the audience will be put under hypnosis (the process of which is a show in its own right), their inhibitions evaporated and their minds no longer their own. The four or five best are left on stage when one of the world’s leading improvisers enters! Colin Mochrie (co-creator) will initiate and manipulate those under hypnosis himself and turn the show into an improv extravaganza!

In the hands of two masters, and solely crafted from the audience’s uninhibited subconscious, this will be an entirely original and completely unforgettable show, for who knows where the unconscious mind will go. What can possibly go wrong? Come and see for yourself!
