Thriller • Patrick Hamilton – This Broadway hit was first produced in London under the title Gaslight, and made into a classic film. The Manningham home in foggy London appears to be the essence of Victorian tranquility for Bella and her suave husband, but we soon learn that there are strange things happening in the house, causing Bella to doubt her sanity. Enter a Scotland Yard inspector, who offers her a different, more sinister explanation. As evening turns to night, Bella must decide who to trust – her husband? The inspector? Herself? This suspenseful psychological thriller “remains close to the top of the class” -Brooks Atkinson, NY Times
After a sold-out show last season, The Return returns! This group started in 1995 when 4 friends got together to play their favorite Beatles songs just for the fun of it. Twenty plus years later they are still playing together and have created the highest level of authenticity possible. From John Lennon’s on-stage gum chewing, to using exact replicas of the instruments, costumes and gear the Beatles used, they have not left any detail to chance. Tony Perkins of Good Morning America said, “They were great! Their energy and enthusiasm jumps off the stage. It was quite fun to watch them and imagine what it must have been like at an actual Beatles concert!” Get ready to be transported back to the early ’60s and dance!
