Some of the details are still being refined but we are very excited about the season for 2024-25:

Being Somebody — Growing up Brooklyn, a Father/Daughter Tale

Saturday, October 19 (7:30 p.m.) – Sunday, October 20 (1:30 p.m.)

Being Somebody — Growing up Brooklyn, a Father/Daughter Tale

A funny, hope-filled show starring Dr. Howard Mase, an extraordinary 88-year-old psychologist, and his singer/playwright/actor daughter Marla. Through masterful storytelling, song and dance, they take us back in time to Howard growing up in Brooklyn’s post-war gleam of the 1940s, and Marla navigating the gritty disco era of the 1970s. This musical memoir touches on universal themes and invites us to reconnect with important moments in our lives.

Visiting Mr. Green

by Jeff Baron*

This 21st century “odd couple” will take audiences on a roller coaster of humor, heartbreak and healing.

Bad Jews

Joshua Harmon*
After their beloved grandfather dies leaving a treasured piece of religious jewelry, his grandchildren fight over the precious heirloom. In one corner is Daphna a “Real Jew” who is volatile, self-assured and unbending. In the other is her equally stubborn cousin, the secular Liam, who wants it for his shiksa girlfriend. Stuck in the middle is Liam’s brother, the gentle Josh, who tries to stay out of the fray. Along the way they battle about their religious faith, cultural assimilation, and the validity of their Jewish identity.
