The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged)

At long last we are pleased to announce the availability of one of the most sought-after Christmas plays ever: THE ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS SHOW (ABRIDGED) by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor. These rascals from the company that brought you the uproarious smash hit THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED) have done it again in hilarious fashion. Broadway World called it, “A pure delight from start to finish … Inspired madness!” Professional performance-rights applications are being accepted now, and nonprofessional applications will be accepted beginning May 31, 2016. Give the gift of hilarity to your audiences this holiday season.

Laugh It Up, Stare It Down by Alan Hruska

The producer of this play, still running at The Cherry Lane, called me up and asked me to come see it. She said it even had a nice review in The New York Times! … I went last Tuesday night, and enjoyed playwright Alan Hruska’s romp through a couple’s lifetime together.

Two other actors play a variety of humorous characters in the couple’s life. It is a fun (and funny) journey…
