Now Playing Onstage in New Hampshire - Week of 6/01/2014 OLIVE AND THE BITTER HERBS
Branch River Theatre
5/30-6/7/2014
BRT's 2014 summer offering, Olive and the Bitter Herbs, swings a little less way off Broadway! How, you ask? Via Olive's Tony-nominated playwright (The Tale of the Allergist's Wife), Charles Busch, that's how! The playwright also wrote and starred in the film, Die, Mommie, Die!, featuring Stark Sands, now starring on Broadway in Kinky Boots! Olive director, Mia Moravis met Sands, who says, "Die, Mommie, Die! was my first drag role, and Olive is one of my favorite Busch plays!" Olive and the Bitter Herbs centers around curmudgeonly Olive Fisher, a retired New York actress who suddenly sees a ghost in her mirror. That, though, is the least of her problems. Her radiator's broken, the couple next door stink up her apartment with exotic cheeses, and the highlight of her long career was a sausage commercial in the '80s. Despite that she's not the most popular tenant in the building, her neighbors invite themselves into her life and she finds herself hosting a Passover Seder. But are Olive's guests there to see her, or the mysterious man in her mirror? Olive and the Bitter Herbs is a comedy about connecting to the people in our lives-those with us, and those who have passed on…

SPECIALIZED THEATER ENRICHMENT PROGRAM, LLC
6/6-6/7/2014
From the hit motion pictures, television series, and international stage success, FAME is nothing short of a global phenomenon.  Set during the last years of New York City's celebrated High School for the Performing Arts on 46th Street (1980-1984), FAME JR. is the bittersweet but ultimately inspiring story of a diverse group of students as they commit to four years of grueling artistic and academic work. With candor, humor and insight, the show explores the issues that confront many young people today. With its topical subject manner, multi-ethnic cast of actors, singers, dancers and instrumentalists and high-energy, contemporary pop score (which includes the hit title song), FAME JR. is an ideal musical for young performers.

Now Playing Onstage in New Hampshire - Week of 6/01/2014 TAMING OF THE SHREW
The Players' Ring Theatre
5/30-6/15/2014
Ah, La dolce Vita. Italy in the 50s, where men were men and women seemed to serve them; where the sweet tempered and sexy Bianca can have her pick of suitors, but only after her fiery, untamable sister, Kate is sold to the highest bidder. Rising to the challenge is the equally untamable Petruchio. But who will tame who in this delicious love story that has the audacity to ask what roles we play and who are we underneath the surface in the face of true love?
