After suffering a major loss while on a cross-country bike trip, 21 year-old Leo seeks solace from his feisty 91 year-old grandmother Vera in her West Village apartment. Over the course of a single month, these unlikely roommates infuriate, bewilder, and ultimately reach each other. Amy Herzog's acclaimed new play looks at how two outsiders find their way in today's world.

After its premiere at Lincoln Center Theater in 2011, 4000 Miles was nominated for a Pulitzer prize.

This well-loved Broadway comedy produced one of theatre's most beloved roles: Unconventional Murray, uncle to precocious nephew, Nick. Tired of writing cheap comedy gags for "Chipper the Chipmunk," a children's television star, Murray finds himself unemployed with plenty of free time with which to pursue his. . . pursuits.

Florence Foster Jenkins was a wealthy and eccentric socialite who believed she was a great coloratura soprano when in fact, she was incapable of producing two consecutive notes in tune. Despite (or perhaps because of) this, her annual recitals in the ballroom of the Ritz Carlton hotel brought her extraordinary fame. Souvenir tells her story through the eyes of her accompanist Cosme McMoon.

Oct 3 *One Night Only*
Grover Silcox

It's hilarious, tragic, wild, and right at home at Montgomery Theater.  Local comic legend (and DJ John DeBella's former sidekick) Grover Silcox delivers a night of bawdy, Victorian laughs in his one-man show of the poetry, drama and irony of Edgar Allen Poe.  The play is laced with comedy and antics and is sure to be a perfect evening of entertainment as we break into Autumn.

 

Oct 17 - Oct 26
by John O'Hara

A new spin on an old tale fit for the whole family! Every night the king tucks his twelve daughters into bed and locks their door and every morning he awakes to find their new shoes tattered to pieces. A handsome young stranger shows up to help solve the mystery.

Catholic parents, meet Jewish atheist fiancée. When Andy brings his sweetheart home for Christmas Eve with this loving mother, sour father and severely mentally challenged brother, it seems that his worst fears about family blow-ups will be realized. But then an incredible event takes place that forces them to face the truth of what ties them together, and makes everyone realize the bond that exists between them all. An antidote for the apathy of modern life and a balm for pre-holiday anxiety. 

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
