"An average day in the life of Charlie Brown." A day made up of little moments picked from all the days of Charlie Brown, from Valentine's Day, to the baseball season, from wild optimism, to utter despair, all mixed in with the lives of his friends (both human and otherwise).
Based on the Comic Strip by Charles M. Schulz.

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This 2-time Tony® and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of 4), an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance!
In The 39 Steps, a man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she's a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization called "The 39 Steps" is hot on the man's trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale! A riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft, The 39 Steps amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure! The 39 Steps, was Broadway's longest running comedy, and played its 500th performance on Broadway, May 19th, 2009!
The New York Times calls it "Absurdly Enjoyable" and the Daily News says it’s “A Dizzy Delight!”

Accomplice begins as a straightforward English thriller in a country house. A sex-starved wife and her lover plan to murder her stuffy husband. But is that really what is happening? Accomplice is a truely unique and ground breaking thriller/comedy where no one is who or what they seem. Armed with enough twists to stump even the seasoned sleuth, this play has broken box office records across the country. This is a truly unique thriller by the author of The Mystery of Edwin Drood.
"A delight. It is humorous, odd, scary, wildly dramatic, adult, adolescent in short, impossible to dislike." - Pasadena Star News
"Miss it a your peril." - The Los Angeles Herald-Examiner
"A breathless ride through an ever shifting series of planes." -Cleveland Plain Dealer
"Part murder mystery, part sex farce and completely entertaining...Suspenseful, charming and funny." - USA Today
