Winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Margaret Edson's Wit follows Vivian Bearing, a brilliant, demanding, and highly articulate poetry professor, as she undergoes experimental treatment for ovarian cancer. During the course of her illness, Vivian is moved from a position of authority to one of dependency, and she reassesses her life and work in an emotionally powerful, profound, sometimes humorous, and finally inspiring way that transforms her and each of us. A deeply compassionate and uplifting story of a life and death conflict between the head and the heart.

City Theater Company
5/2-5/17/2014
City Theater Company's 20th Anniversary season closes with a dose of hip-hop hilarity in the form of The Bomb-itty of Errors, an "ad-RAP-tation" of Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors. The play was written by Jordan Allen-Dutton, Jason Catalano, GQ, and Erik Weiner, with music by J.A.Q. Director Michael Gray describes the piece as "Very silly fun. It's Run DMC meets the Bard-there is actually a reference to 'You be illin.'' It is a nonstop 90-minutes of mistaken identities, beat-boxing, cross-dressing, and gender-bending, loaded with sophomoric humor all done to the beats of a DJ mixing live." The Bomb-itty of Errors stars Chris Banker (Hair), Dylan Geringer (Xanadu, Gypsy), Patrick O'Hara (Falsettos, Company), and Brendan Sheehan (Bat Boy, Sweeney Todd), along with a special appearance by DJ Swizzul. Directed by Michael Gray. Set and lighting design by Vicki Neal and Richard Kendrick. Costume design by Kerry Kristine McElrone and Lauren Peters. Stage management and choreography by Tommy Fisher.

Now Playing Onstage in Delaware - Week of 5/04/2014 THE MUSIC MAN
THE EVERETT INC
5/9-5/18/2014
An affectionate paean to Smalltown, U.S.A. of a bygone era, Meredith Willson's THE MUSIC MAN follows fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band he vows to organize - this despite the fact he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall. Perfect for professional theatres, community groups, summer stock and schools alike, this award-winning, critically acclaimed Broadway classic is an all-American institution, thanks to is quirky characters, charmingly predictable dramatic situations, and one-of-a-kind, nostalgic score of rousing marches, barbershop quartets and sentimental ballads which have become popular standards. The cast features a soaring soprano ingenue, parts for young performers and children, and one of the musical theatre's treasures, a tour de force leading role for a charismatic actor who doesn't need to be a trained singer. By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, THE MUSIC MAN is family entertainment at its best.
