Animal Crackers   
Book by George S. Kaufman and Morrie Ryskind.
The toe-tapping, knee-slapping Marx Brothers classic gets a zany new revival in this gem of American musical comedy.   The society party of the season has landed at the Rittenhouse estate, but the disappearance of a valuable painting threatens to spoil the affair.  Thankfully, Captain Spaulding is on the case! Or is he? Filled with secret identities, love affairs, and stolen art, Animal Crackers proves the comedy genius of the Marx Brothers is as spot on as ever.

  Thursday, 21 A Civil War Christmas by Paula Vogel
Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel spins a musical tale of hope and forgiveness. It’s a bitterly cold Christmas Eve in 1864 and all along the Potomac, from the White House to the battlefields, friends and foes alike find their lives strangely and poetically intertwined.  Weaving together carols, hymns, and folk songs, this “beautifully stitched tapestry of American lives” (The New York Times) is sure to become a new holiday classic for the entire family.

   Friday, 31 Stones in His Pockets by Marie Jones
When a big Hollywood film crew takes over a small Irish town, the locals line up to earn their “40-quid-a-day” as extras—and maybe pursue some dreams of their own. Charlie wants to write a blockbuster screenplay, while Jake would settle for a date with the lovely leading lady.  Where they and their neighbors end up ultimately surprises them all. An “uproarious, joyful evening” (New York Daily News) with two actors  playing more than a dozen characters, Stones is an acting tour de force both rollicking and poignant.

  Friday, 28  Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare.
Revelry, disguises, swashbuckling, and (of course) pining lovers abound in what some call Shakespeare’s most perfect comedy. Twins Viola and Sebastian, separated in a shipwreck and presuming each other dead, wash ashore in the beautiful but mysterious land of Illyria.  A tale of mistaken identity and mismatched ardor unfurls as lords and ladies, servants and masters wind a topsy-turvy path to happiness.
