A chance meeting brings a man a woman together. At first their conversation seems innocent, but gradually the truth emerges and we discover it wasn't a chance meeting at all. It actually appears to be a part of some sinister plot. But who concocted it? What's the "end game?" Who's really the predator and who's really the prey?
Herb, a Hollywood scriptwriter currently "at liberty" is surprised when his forgotten past reappears in the form of Libby, a teenage daughter who's trekked from Brooklyn with dreams of movie stardom. With Steffy, his sometime paramour at his side, Herb decides to take another stab at fatherhood and hopefully this time, get it right...
A Veteran FBI agent and a new recruit are assigned a job of critical importance to J. Edgar Hoover and the White house: get politically outspoken John Lennon out of the country before Richard Nixon runs for reelection in 1972. Based on actual declassified FBI documents and set in a time when the country was sharply divided by an unpopular war and lies flowed from Washington, this humorous yet thought-provoking play is as contemporary as today's headlines.
Also On Stage This Summer
Ensemble Stage is proud to bring this inspiring and moving play to our stage.
Based on a true story, the play centers around eight children confined in Terezin Concentration Camp during the height of the Holocaust. As much as it is a story of fear and trepidation, it is a story of the resilience and eternal hope of children through the ages.
The commedia troupe guides us through a creative version of the seven voyages of Sinbad the Sailor with patter verse, tumbling, mock combat and clowning! Visit foreign lands as the players bring to life the giant Roc bird, the King of the Skeletons, Zughub the Ogre, the Old Man of the Sea and more!
The commedia troupe guides us through a creative version of the princess and the pea and romps through a series of hilarious princess tests with great slapstick humor! A fairy godmother has even been added to the story (whether the commedia troupe likes it or not).
A musical tribute to four icons of Broadway, stage, and screen: Julie Andrews, Mary Martin, Ethel Merman and Barbra Streisand. It features songs that you know, and some that you don't! Along with stories and anecdotes and fun trivia tidbits, as well as surprises!
