FRANKIE & JOHNNY IN THE CLAIRE DE LUNE by Terrence McNally (March 29-April 8)
A contemporary American classic and probably the greatest romantic comedy of the latter half of the 20th century. What begins as a one-night-stand between a short-order cook and a waitress becomes a tug-of-war between one who sees a future of endless love and adventure between them and one who is terrified of being hurt again, while a classical radio station plays some of the most beautiful music ever written in the background.

LENI by Sarah Greenman (May 17-27)
Hovering somewhere between life and death, Hitler’s chosen filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl (director of “Triumph of the Will” and “Olympia”) confronts her younger self and the moral and artistic choices she made as the two attempt to create one final film to rationalize her life’s work and the uses to which it was put by a fascist regime. A searing and probing examination of narcissism, denial and artistic responsibility starring Bridge Street Theatre favorite Roxanne Fay.
