Award-winning playwright and filmmaker Paul Schwartz (Lifetime member of the Actors Studios) and his new play called 'A Measure of Doubt,' (directed by Janet Bentley) is having its world premiere at the Hudson Guild Theatre in association with The New York Theatre Festival this coming March. Loosely informed by the Kavanaugh hearings, A MEASURE OF DOUBT explores the battle between the Left and the Right. The #METOO movement, and the very nature of jurisprudence in our society. At the same time it has at its center a gripping personal story of a young woman trying to find her identity, and a man faced with the question: 'Am I defined by the worst thing I've ever done?'

There's an unmistakeable sound of thunder emanating from the Ogunquit Playhouse these days, commencing with the rhythmic pounding of nearly two dozen pairs of feet, and ending in a crescendo of audience applause. It is not fulsome praise to give DirectorChoreographer Randy Skinner multiple huzzahs and many pats on the back for this fresh and exciting production of 42ND STREET the iconic show-biz musical about a small town girl who pursues her dream and takes Broadway by storm. From the grownups to the kids in the chorus, Tony Award-nominee Skinner seamlessly blends stage veterans and non-Equity performers into one sparkling, magical troupe that really knows how to put on a show.
