June 27 – July 7
It's the end of the world. Do you have a date? When Jo answers a personal ad offering “Sex to Change the Course of the World,” she doesn't know that the guy who posted the ad, an awkward marine biology student named Jules, meant it literally. Just one small global cataclysm later, this unlikely—and incompatible—couple are the last two people on earth, holed up in Jules' subterranean research lab, and the fate of humanity may lie in the balance. This is one apocalyptic fantasy that's likely to leave you grinning from ear to ear.
By Rupert Holmes
July 11 – 21
Janet and Derek seem to have it all, attractive home, fashionable friends, comfortable income, contented life, but in this Edgar award-winning comedy-thriller, by the author of The Mystery of Edwin Drood (and The Pina Colada Song!), nothing is what it seems—and someone's about to shake things up with a little murder. You'll never know which way is up in this devious and delightful mystery with more twists and turns than rollercoaster ride. We'd tell you more, but then we'd have to kill you
To Kill a Mockingbird
by Christopher Sergel, from the novel by Harper Lee
July 25 – August 4
A timeless American classic, and an unforgettable tale of the sometimes harsh lessons learned while growing up in the deep south. Follow the journey of Jem and Scout Finch, whose father has been appointed to defend Tom Robinson, a black man framed for a crime he didn’t commit. As the trial sends shockwaves through their small Alabama town, the children witness their community in a tense tug of war between justice and racism, and discover that their father is more than just the man who tucks them in at night.
The Big Bang
by Boyd Graham and Jed Feuer
August 8 - 18
Imagine a 12-hour, 83.5 million dollar musical chronicling the history of the world from The Creation to the QVC! Imagine hilarious songs sung by characters ranging from Adam and Eve (Free Food and Frontal Nudity) to Eva Braun (Loving Him is Vhere I Vent Wrong). Imagine it all brought to life for you by two high-energy actors playing all 318 parts (with 6428 costumes!) in the posh apartment where they are cat-sitting for The Lipbalms, who are on a two-week trip to Israel. Now imagine that one of those actors is Tommy Labanaris! History, and The Lipbalms' apartment, will never be the same!
Pass the Remote!
