Different Stages to Present ARSENIC AND OLD LACE, 11/22-12/14
by BWW News Desk - Oct 24, 2013

Different Stages opens its 2013-2014 season with the classic comedy by Joseph Kesselring, Arsenic and Old Lace. Drama critic Mortimer Brewster must deal with his crazy, homicidal family and local police in Brooklyn as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the woman he loves. His family includes two spinster aunts who have taken to relieving the loneliness of old men by inviting them in for a nice glass of homemade elderberry wine laced with arsenic, strychnine, and just a pinch of cyanide. Add to the mix his two brothers - one who thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt, and one who is a serial killer. Toss in a police officer who thinks he's a playwright, sprinkle in a few corpses, and you have one of the most hilarious and enduring comedies in American theater. The New York Times called Arsenic and Old Lace so funny that none of us will ever forget it! (more...)

Different Stages' THE LAST MEETING OF THE KNIGHTS OF THE WHITE MAGNOLIA Opens 4/4
by BWW News Desk - Mar 6, 2014

Different Stages continues its 2013 - 2014 season with Preston Jones comedy The Last Meeting of the Knights of the White Magnolia. A fraternity of Bradleyville's 'good ole boys,' which meets in the now decrepit Cattleman's Hotel, the Knights of the White Magnolia has long since lost sight of its espoused concern with patriotism and racial purity and has become an excuse for a handful of cronies to share a game of dominoes and a spot of liquid refreshment. Having dwindled steadily in membership, the lodge has unaccountably found a new recruit from a neighboring town, and his appearance gives the remaining members a chance to resurrect their ancient 'mystic' initiation rite, an event which, for all its intentional seriousness, becomes one of the wildest, funniest scenes imaginable. However, in the end the inevitable disillusionment sets in sending the would-be applicant scurrying for home and leaving the others to contemplate the wreckage and loss of still another glory that once was.
