Written by Sandy Rustin, The Cottage is a tale of sex, betrayal and true love, revealing a surprising web of secrets in this hilarious-and-almost-murderous-romantic comedy. Don Stephenson, currently on Broadway in A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder directs. Stephenson has appeared in seven Broadway shows and directed a star-studded Titanic in February at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall. The Full Monty runs most evenings and has received rave reviews. The popular family musical Little Women runs through August 16th, during weekend matinees at 10 am, and select evening performances.
