An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet café. A stranger at the next table who has had enough. And a dead man—with a lot of loose ends. So begins Dead Man's Cell Phone, a wildly imaginative new comedy by MacArthur "Genius" Grant recipient and Pulitzer Prize finalist, Sarah Ruhl. A work about how we memorialize the dead, this is the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.

The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up, and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room! It's 1985 and rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own until Julia, a winsome waitress, wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark. Unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.
