Peggy has redecorated the living room, and her husband, Roger, can't stand it. She has made the room to look like a stage set, and everything now faces one wall— the "fourth wall"— which she has left bare (and which is really the audience). Not knowing where to turn, Roger enlists the help of their friend, Julia, and a local theater professor, Floyd. Crazy, hilarious antics ensue (including some impromptu Cole Porter numbers!) in this uproarious comedy, which the New Yorker calls "…debonair, thought-provoking, and funny."

As we launch our new Songs In The Cellar series, join us for a special ONE WEEKEND ONLY engagement as the Cellar transforms into an uptown cabaret club. In a musical revue toasting some of Broadway's most memorable melodies, some of the area's favorite performers tackle songs written for the opposite sex. This hilarious and heartwarming trip through musical theater gives performers the chance to sing the songs they know by heart, but that were written for the opposite part ... reminding us that music is universal.

Bedroom Farce

Bedroom Farce is a classic, contemporary British comedy from Tony Award-winning playwright Alan Ayckbourn.  In three different bedrooms, we follow the simultaneous interactions of four married couples, whose lives become hilariously complicated when things go awry at an evening house-warming party.  Expect chaos, pratfalls, and plenty of door-slamming in this fast-paced, quick-witted, and hysterical (but PG-rated: no nudity or swearing!) comedy.
