It is the classic story told with new twists and turns, as Dracula is seen in deeply shadowing light and illuminating darkness in a new adaptation that restores the suspense and seduction of Bram Stoker’s classic novel to the stage. As Dracula begins to exert an other-worldly will upon the residents of London, they try to solve the mysteries created by the vampire’s machinations. In a valiant attempt to save themselves from a hideous fate, they resolve to conquer the would-be vanquisher. Rich with both humor and horror, this play paints a wickedly theatrical picture of Stoker’s famous vampire. Unique casting choices make this PSU version even more interesting and provocative.

The Threepenny Opera tells the tale of Macheath, A.K.A. Mack the Knife, a lady’s man of ill-repute and knavery who will stop at nothing to get what he wants when he wants it.  Raw intensity, rough reality, and unflinching honesty are hallmarks of this masterpiece that combines epic and musical theatre.  Created by two theatrical masters of the 20th century, Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, The Threepenny Opera, which gave us the pop hit “Mack the Knife,” offers insights into the underside of life to which, one way or another, even the most noble and honest of us may fall prey.

The devised, one-man show by Robin Marcotte, Dottie, stunningly examines how people suffering from dementia perceive the world. Dottie received its premiere in Philadelphia, where it garnered critical praise. Philadelphia Weekly observed, “This aerial ballet is just one of many memorable images in Marcotte’s rich and rewarding play,” and the Currier Post exclaimed, “And when Dottie, begowned again, dances on air with a mirror, the show achieves a singular, and singularly heartbreaking, power.” You’ll be moved by Dottie’s resilience, touched by her perseverance and inspired by her determination to make sense of her diminishing world. (Dottie is made possible in part by a grant from the Smart Family Foundation.)

Neil Simon’s Rumors is an extreme farce of the highest and most hilarious order. The Deputy Mayor of New York, Ken Gorman, has just shot himself while his wife, Chris, is nowhere to be found. Hilarious complications ensue as guests gather at the couple’s large, tastefully appointed Sneden’s Landing townhouse to celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary. How was Ken shot, how will they deal with it, and what will the “real” story be? These and many other questions lead to miscommunications, misinformation, and misadventures, but never a missed laugh, as an evening of damage control leads to mounting dilemmas and increasing laughs. NBC-TV said that Rumors is “Not only side splitting, but front and back splitting.” You’ll laugh, and laugh, and laugh even more.
