 "The live performing arts are ephemeral, but at their best they can exist powerfully in the imagination long after ceasing to exist on the stage. That's why at the Playhouse we strive each year to provide you with dramas, comedies, and musicals that don't just stimulate the heart and mind, but that will leave impressions that linger with you long after the curtain comes down. That holds especially true of our 2014 season, a lineup full of extraordinary plays by some the theater's most talented artists." - Artistic Director Mark Lamos

A Song At Twilight

By Noël Coward
Directed by Mark Lamos
a co-production with Hartford Stage

April 29 - May 17, 2014

In his long career, Sir Hugo Latymer has achieved more than most writers even dream of-money, fame, and a reputation beyond reproach. But his carefully constructed ivory tower is imperiled when a long-ago love threatens to shed a very public light into the most scandalous corner of his private past, a revelation that could bring it all tumbling down. In this exquisite battle of wits, playwright Noël Coward explores the nature of passion, the cruelty of love, and the price of the secrets we keep.

William Shakespeare?

Based on an original idea and production for 92nd Street Y's Lyrics & Lyricists TM, New York, NY.

Nora has the perfect life, a happy home, and a healthy marriage. But when a mysterious man from her past appears, her idyllic world is suddenly turned upside down.

Things We Do For Love
By Alan Ayckbourn
Directed by John Tillinger

August 19 - September 7, 2014

Love will make you crazy. In this uproarious comedy by Playhouse favorite Alan Ayckbourn, fastidious Barbara's orderly, but solitary world is thrown into chaos when the arrival of her longtime friend Nikki and her fiancé ignites unexpected and violent passions. Replete with trademark Ayckbourn touches, this wickedly funny play will have you questioning just how sane any of us really are when it comes to love.

Intimate Apparel
By Lynn Nottage
Directed by Mary B. Robinson

October 7 -  November 1, 2014

Each choice we make is a vital stitch in the ornately and delicately embroidered fabric of our lives. In her celebrated play Intimate Apparel, Pulitzer Prize-winner Lynn Nottage weaves an intricate tapestry of the joys, sorrows, tragedy, and triumph of a gifted but lonely African American seamstress in early Twentieth-Century Manhattan as she negotiates the choice between a love that is accepted and one that is true.
