Direct from LA Fringe – making its East Coast premiere… Your favorite Netflix prison series, Orange Is The New Black, gets the full parody treatment, complete with songs, dances and jokes inspired by the groundbreaking hit show. Join the behind-bars adventures of Piper, Alex, Red, Nicky, Crazy Eyes and more for a musical re-imagining of the day-to-day struggles of life in prison. OITNM is a gender-bending, mind-warping, laugh-till-you-cry musical spoof. Created by Jared Goode and Veronica Vasquez. As a warm-up each night, audiences get to embrace their inner-child with The Shock Puppets.

A far cry from standard sock puppet children’s theater, The Shock Puppets embodies “all the messed-up s**t we normally can’t do because there’s a kid around.” – Chris Manley.

Nunsense A-men! in Broadway NUNSENSE A-MEN!
Milford 2nd Street Players
5/5-5/14/2017
Nunsense A-Men! is basically the original Nunsense show with all of the characters being portrayed by male musical comedy performers. Think of it as “Mrs. Doubtfire enters the Convent.” Done totally seriously, this show is, to quote a critic, “no drag.” The fun begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of “Grease.” Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. Full of comic surprises, Nunsense has become an international phenomenon. With more than 5000 productions worldwide, it has been translated into 21 languages. A new version of the show--Nunsense A-men!--premiered in New York in 1998. Receiving rave reviews and standing ovations subsequent productions have boasted such stars as Arte Johnson (Laugh-In) as Mother Superior and Olympic Champion, Greg Louganis as Sister Robert Anne. A whole new layer of comedy surfaces with lines like “The guys in the old neighborhood still can’t believe I became a nun!” To quote the New York Times: “A change of habit, boy oh, boy!” Performances at 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and 3pm on Sundays.

DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS in Broadway DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS
Clear Space Theatre
5/5-5/21/2017
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, based on the popular 1988 MGM film, takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Sophisticated, suave with a good dash of mischief, this hysterical comedy features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty). Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health. After meeting on a train, they attempt to work together, only to find that this small French town isn't big enough for the two of them. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end!
