ENSEMBLE

 
SYNOPSIS
Inspired by and featuring the songs of Elvis Presley. It’s 1955, and into a square little town in a square little state rides a guitar-playing roustabout who changes everything and everyone he meets in this hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy that’ll have you jumpin’ out of your blue suede shoes with such classics as “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Jailhouse Rock,” and “Don’t Be Cruel.” “You could feel the audience perking up for the jailhouse musical sequence… “ Ben Brantley, New York Times

On Stage Now and Upcoming Shows

Laughter on the 23rd Floor

Comedy is hard work! At least it is for the writers of Max Prince’s variety show. Based on Broadway comedy giant Neil Simon’s own experiences writing for Sid Caesar’s variety show in the 1950’s, Laughter on the 23rd Floor is a 30 Rock-esque descent into a ridiculous writers room for funnyman Max Prince during the height of the Red Scare.
