Set in Depression-era Times Square, the golden age classic “Guys and Dolls” follows big city gamblers and the women who love them.

Eugène Ionesco’s “The Bald Soprano” is a masterful classic of the Theatre of the Absurd. One English evening, an English couple, the Smiths, sit in their English home after an English supper, awaiting the arrival of their English friends, the Martins, for an English dinner party. Throughout the evening, the party slides into chaos as tempers flare and communication breaks down entirely.

“The Laramie Project” by Moisés Kaufman

Advanced Directing Production
8 p.m. April 25-27
Mainstage, Frances Frazier Comstock Theatre
In October 1998 in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming, Matthew Shepard, a 21-year-old student at the University of Wyoming, was tied to a fence post, severely beaten, robbed, tortured, and left alone to die. He was rushed to the hospital and put on life support and died five days later. The reason for this brutal crime? Matthew Shepard was gay.
The Tectonic Theater Project, led by their founder Moisés Kaufman, traveled to Laramie in the aftermath of the murder with the intent of creating a theatrical portrait of a town coming to grips with hate-fueled violence. Out of the interviews that were conducted, journal entries, and found texts, The Laramie Project was born.
