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 critics take 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.

Roald Dahl’s MATILDA The Musical

Matilda The Musical Full Art Vertical Vortex Logo

Book by Dennis Kelly / Music & Lyrics by Tim Minchin

Orchestrations & Additional Music by Chris Nightingale

Directed by Keven Renken

Performances:

  • July 15 • 8 pm
  • July 16 • 8 pm
  • July 17 • 2 pm
  • July 22 • 8 pm
  • July 23 • 8 pm
  • July 24 • 2 pm

Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical is the captivating masterpiece from the Royal Shakespeare Company that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination, and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. With book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda has won 47 international awards and continues to thrill sold-out audiences of all ages around the world.

The story of an extraordinary girl who dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.

Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence, and psychokinetic powers. She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other’s lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda’s extraordinary personality. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however – the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils’ saving grace!

‘ART’

By Yasmina Reza

Translated by Christopher Hampton

Directed by Derek Baxter

Performances:

  • February 4 • 8 pm
  • February 5 • 8 pm
  • February 6 • 2 pm

'ART' the play How much would you pay for a white painting? Would it matter who the painter was? Would it be…art?

One of Marc’s best friends, Serge (David the Day), just bought a very expensive painting. It’s about five feet by four feet, all white with white diagonal lines. To Marc (Jeremiah Murzinsky), the painting is a joke, but Serge insists Marc doesn’t have the proper standard to judge the work. Another friend, Yvan (Steven C. Fox), though burdened with his own problems, allows himself to be pulled into this disagreement. Eager to please, Yvan tells Serge he likes the painting. Lines are drawn and these old friends square off over the canvas, using it as an excuse to relentlessly batter one another over various failures.

As their arguments become less theoretical and more personal, they border on destroying their friendships. At the breaking point, Marc threatens to damage the painting.

This is where the friendship is finally tested, and the aftermath of action, and its reaction, affirms the power of those bonds.

‘ART’ was produced on Broadway by David Pugh, Sean Connery, and Joan Cullman, March 1, 1998.

‘ART’ is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc. New York.
