Our Town

Our Town runs for 6 performances March 8, 2016. Thursdays, Fridays, and
Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm. Early Bird Pricing ends March 1, 2016.

Described by Edward Albee as "...the greatest American play ever written," the
story follows the small town of Grover's Corners through three acts: "Daily
Life," "Love and Marriage," and "Death and Eternity." Narrated by a stage
manager and performed with minimal props and sets, audiences follow the
Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually—in
one of the most famous scenes in American theatre—die. Thornton Wilder's
final word on how he wanted his play performed is an invaluable addition to
the American stage and to the libraries of theatre lovers internationally.

When blind date newbie Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, a casual
drink at a busy New York restaurant turns into a hilarious high-stakes
dinner. As the date unfolds in real time, the couple quickly finds that they
are not alone on this unpredictable evening. In a delightful and
unexpected twist, Casey and Aaron’s inner criticstake on a life of their
own when other restaurant patrons transform into supportive best
friends, manipulative exes and protective parents, who sing and dance
them through ice-breakers, appetizers and potential conversational land
mines. Can this couple turn what could be a dating disaster into
something special before the check arrives?
