He looks like Johnny! He sounds like Johnny! Nobody does Cash like Terry Lee Goffee! Terry Lee Goffee says of his show "I wanted to make my show different and unique by portraying Johnny Cash in the first person, rather than just standing there singing the songs. Like an actor in a play I literally become my character, in this case Johnny Cash, from the moment I walk onstage until the end of the show." Terry is widely recognized as the best Johnny Cash impersonator around; in fact, Terry portrays Cash's look and sound so accurately that he was selected to be the official Johnny Cash model for the popular video game "Guitar Hero 5". Josie Waverly IS Patsy Cline! With Patsy's early hit songs like, "Walkin After Midnight", "Lovesick Blues" and "There He Goes" through her final hit recordings of "Crazy", "Leavin on Your Mind" and "Sweet Dreams", Josie's performance and vocal capturing of over 20 Patsy Cline signature hit songs is sure to leave you feeling like you just witnessed a true Patsy Cline concert.

The Wilbury Theatre Group
An ancient tale comes roaring back to life in a compelling new telling filled with contemporary wit and wisdom. The clash of swords and shields, the broken hearts and broken oaths, the bonds of friendship and family--An Iliad arises on a bare stage, told by a lone poet who's seen too much. From Obie Award-winner playwright and director Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare comes this stunning show that captures the grief and glory of the battle for Troy. Homer removes his armor on behalf of all humanity and reveals the truth within each of us. A hawk, a dove…An Iliad races through time to become breathtakingly relevant today.

The Lyons in Broadway THE LYONS
2nd Story Theatre
Sure, this furiously funny, savagely snide family is hilarious as they kick the ego out of one another. But look at them close and you're likely to find an intimate mirror of your own frightened self. Razor-sharp, black comedy perfection.

The Big Meal in Broadway THE BIG MEAL
Gamm Theatre
Somewhere in America in a suburban chain restaurant on an average night, young people Sam and Nicole meet for a drink. Sparks fly, setting in motion the extraordinary tale of five generations of an ordinary family with the moments, both mundane and milestone, that make a life. Just eight actors at one table morph into multiple characters over nearly 80 years, displaying their shared DNA, humanity and humor. In the spirit of Thornton Wilder's plays (Our Town, The Long Christmas Dinner), The Big Meal is stunningly ambitious, big-hearted and richly satisfying. Reservations recommended!
