Additional Notes:
In a kind shot , Mateer dribbles a ball while telling the story of her life…beginning with how an African American boarder named Ike, taught a 61” sixth grade Mateer to play basketball.

City: NYC

Additional Notes:
Set in Paris at the turn of the 20th century, legendary storyteller Anita Loos dramatizes Collette's timeless tale of love and marriage...and commerce.

Seven years before MGM presented the classic movie musical version of the same story, this comedic romance of a rich but weary bon vivant and an innocent would-be courtesan launched the career of Audrey Hepburn.

Venue: ( American Theatre of Actors)
American Theatre of Actors
Producer: ( Richard Hymes-Esposito)
Richard Hymes-Esposito
City: New York

Additional Notes:
HAMLET, a product of the "love, blood, and rhetoric school" of theater, is quite filled with quotations. William Shakespeare's early murder mystery is layered over a meditation on life, death, duty, and the human heart. (If you don't like one, maybe you'll like the other.) You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll realize that this play might just be as good as they say it is. All for $10!

Helen of Troy, New York
 
Rambunctious and silly as only the flapper decade could be. Book by Kaufman and Connelly, songs by Kalmar and Ruby. This is true American musical comedy - tin pan alley at its best!
 
Venue: ( Medicine Show Theatre)
Medicine Show Theatre
Producer: ( Medicine Show)
Medicine Show
City: New York

Additional Notes:
The hilarious 1923 script and score were thought lost for decades. Medicine Show painstakingly re-constructed them to find they are just as funny and timely today as they parody advertising and big business. The vaudeville-inspired humor is timeless too. With Kaufman's You Can't Take It With You taking Broadway by storm and Downton Abbey filling the airwaves, this is an entertaining and unique look at the 1920s, written by the people who were there.

Lone Star: Roy is drinking himself into a stupor, while his brother, Ray, attempts to pull him around. The two of them are set upon by Cletis, who has some horrible news. Physical violence erupts.??
