Just when Jerry thought he’d moved on from his family drama, his mother and sister come back to haunt him … literally. The battle he must wage in this fearless and merciless new comedy will remind us all about those hot buttons we keep buried just below the surface. Be brave and you just may enjoy a good cry while you’re laughing …

ANNIE KORZEN FAMOUS ACTRESS
Through September 17

Annie Korzen, best known for her role as the Seinfeld parent’s obnoxious Boca Vista neighbor, has written and will perform an original show about her hectic, eclectic and electric life on the big and small screens. Korzen, knows that the world would be a better place if everyone would just do what she says, and she has very specific plans for her future and for everyone else’s. This perennial bit player, highly opinionated woman, exasperated mother, and mortified daughter knows exactly what she wants out of life – until life proves her wrong. An evening of laughs, tears, music – and constructive criticism – as Annie learns that it’s only when she lets go and gives up control that things fall into place.

Danny and the Deep Blue Sea
The setting is a rundown bar in the Bronx, where two of society’s rejects, Danny and Roberta, strike up a halting conversation over their beer. He is a brooding, self-loathing young man who resorts more to violence than reason; she is a divorced, guilt-ridden young woman whose troubled teenage son is now being cared for by her parents. Danny, whose fellow truck drivers call him “the animal,” seems incapable of tender emotion, while Roberta, who is still haunted by the memory of an ugly sexual incident involving her father, is distrustful of men in general. And yet, as their initial reserve begins to melt, and they decide to spend the night together, the possibility of a genuine and meaningful relationship begins to emerge—the first for both of them. Through September 10, Sat. at 8 p.m., Sun. at 4 p.m. $25 Adults, $20 Senior/Student.
