Crossing Delancey

directed by LIZ BEST

New world desires clash with old world traditions in this charming romantic comedy that addresses one of the great societal issues of our day ... the dilemma of how the 30-something, attractive, intelligent, successful, and unmarried Jewish female finds a mate she can be happy with.

This story is both timeless and universal … like My Big Fat Greek Wedding, this story transcends cultural and age barriers and has appeal for everyone.

Oct. 23 - Nov. 2, 2003
(shows Wed.-Sat. at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m.)

This show is being performed at the

The Second Time Around

by Henry Denker

Widowed seniors find romance in their golden years, but when they decide to introduce each other to their adult children, they meet with a wall of resistance and disapproval. Although the children's own marriages are anything but perfect, they don't hesitate to give relationship advice to their parents!

Funny, fast-paced, and full of witty banter, this endearing comedy appeals to all ages.
