When a postulant proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain.

Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain's immediate service in their navy.

A young and successful television actor relocates to New York, where he rents a marvelous, gothic apartment. With his television career in limbo, the actor is offered the opportunity to play Hamlet onstage, but there’s one problem: He hates Hamlet. His dilemma deepens with the entrance of John Barrymore’s ghost, who arrives intoxicated and in full costume to the apartment that once was his. The contrast between the two actors, the towering, dissipatEd Barrymore whose Hamlet was the greatest of his time, and Andrew Rally, hot young television star, leads to a wildly funny duel over women, art, success, duty, television, and yes, the apartment.

The Leader in Broadway THE LEADER
Bare Theatre
Bare Theatre presents a mix of shorts that portray the role of leaders in society. With one of the most decisive elections in United States history approaching, Bare Theatre uses Eugene Ionesco's 1953 absurdist comedy The Leader as the centerpiece of a collection of pieces to capture the sometimes humorous, sometimes disturbing implications of following a leader. This bizarre story raises questions about human nature and leadership without being specific to time, place, or person. The original collection will feature, in addition to the Ionesco play and other vignettes: clowns performing TSA-style security checkpoints, a brief look at the most impactful leaders in world history, a presentation on "The Anatomy of a Leader," fun with lemmings, and a choreographed game of "king of the hill" with sinister turns.
