— A full size truck smashes into a farmhouse, zombies begin to pour into the room as the survivors within grab anything they can to defend themselves. This is the climatic final scene in the Maverick Theater's original stage adaptation of Night of the Living Dead. Back for its ninth year, the Maverick's Night of the Living Dead is a unique production that captures the feel of the film with strong performances, bloody action, and plenty of creepy zombies. The hour long play is great Halloween fun for anyone over the age of 13.

Today in 1942, the first revival of Porgy and Bess opened at the Majestic Theatre, where it ran for 286 performances. First performed in 1935, with music by George Gershwin, libretto by DuBose Heyward, and lyrics by Ira Gershwin and DuBose Heyward, it was based on DuBose Heyward's novel Porgy and subsequent play of the same title, which he co-wrote with his wife Dorothy Heyward. All three works deal with African-American life in the fictitious Catfish Row in Charleston, South Carolina, in the early 1920s. Originally conceived by George Gershwin as an 'American folk opera', Porgy and Bess premiered in New York in the fall of 1935 and featured an entire cast of classically trained African-American singers-a daring artistic choice at the time.
