SEASON 2 ANNOUNCED!!!
"Never the Sinner"
by John Logan
A Black Ice Theatre Co. & No Nude Men presentation,
In association with the Exit Theatre
Based on a real event which shocked America in 1924, the play tells how two privileged young men - Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb - murdered a 14-year-old boy for no other reason than to prove they were superior beings above the law. They were not. Arrested, they came to trial in Chicago, charged with murder. As their trial unfolds, it becomes the setting for an argument over the death penalty. The State wants the two young men hanged. Defending them is the renowned lawyer Clarence Darrow. Calling on the judge to take account of the two mens mental state, he argues that hanging them would be a crime itself: that it is reasonable to hate the sin, but never the sinner. This truly gripping account of the historic trial suggests that, given twists of fate and character, Leopold or Loeb could be anyone who has loved too much, had a broken heart, wanted to prove everlasting devotion, or looked at a loved one and thought, I'd die for you, I'd kill for you. This is a love story set to themes of crime and punishment, the press, the times, humanism, Nietzsche's philosophy, and the end of the jazz age.

by Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein

All shows 7:30pm except June 14 at 2:00pm
Georges is the owner of the 'La Cage Aux Folles' nightclub, which features a drag show starring his partner and the love of his life, Albin. After twenty years of un-wedded bliss, Georges and his partner Albin face the hardest challenge of their relationship yet: meeting their sons fiance's parents. Albin has always raised Jean-Michel, Georges biological son, as his own. But when Jean-Michel falls in love and becomes engaged to the daughter of an ultra-conservative, anti-gay politician, Georges feels compelled to try to present a more traditional family to Jean-Michel's potential in-laws. When Albin tries and fails to take on a masculine persona in the role of Uncle Al, he gets more creative in order to find a way to be part of the meet the parents experience. Based on the 1973 French play of the same name, the multi-Tony award-winning La Cage Aux Folles is a musical filled with delightful spectacle and great heart that couldn't be timelier.
