WHITE GUY ON THE BUS - iTheatre Collaborative - September 7-22, 2018



by Bruce Graham

A shocking and excoriating new play that unravels a complex web of moral ambiguity, class conflict, and the racial divide in America.

The answers, like race, are not so easy.

by Daniel Berrigan

Fifty years ago nine people, including two Catholic priests, entered the Selective Service office in Catonsville, MD and removed 378 draft cards and burned them in the parking lot with homemade napalm to protest the war in Vietnam.

HOSTAGE - iTheatre Collaborative - January 18-February 2, 2019


by Michelle Kholos Brooks

Based on the true events of 1979 when students in Tehran took over the American Embassy. The mother of the youngest hostage, a 19 year-old Marine, flew to Tehran in the hope of being allowed to see her son. The play imagines what happened when mother and son were reunited, and the consequences the mother faced when she returned home and was suddenly suspect in her own country. Never doubt the ferocity of a mother’s love.

FROST/NIXON - iTheatre Collaborative - March 29-April 13, 2019


by Peter Morgan

Determined to resurrect his talk-show career, David Frost risks everything on a series of in-depth interviews in order to extract an apology from Nixon. The cagey Nixon, however, is equally bent on redeeming himself in his nation's eyes. In the television age, image is king, and both men are desperate to out-talk and upstage each other as the cameras roll. The result is the interview that sealed a president's legacy.

FRIEND ART - Arizona Young Actor's Alliance - July 26 & 28, 2018



Molly and Kevin are engaged. They have “normal” jobs. Kevin and Nate have known each other since they were kids. Nate used to be famous once. He just broke up with Lil, who does performance art, and she used to work with Molly, who wanted to be an actress a long time ago. These relationships come to a head when Kevin decides he no longer wants the regular life he convinced Molly to live with him. Friend Art asks how late is too late to give up on your dreams, when are you really a grown-up, and what the hell are you supposed to say when walking out of a friend’s truly terrible performance?

Friend Art is performing at the Lone Tree Golf Club.
6262 S Mountain Blvd, Chandler, AZ 85249

Tickets are $12 general admission and are available online or at the door via cash or Venmo.

LATE NITE CATECHISM - Arizona Broadway Theatre - September 25-30, 2018


THE ENCORE ROOM at ABT SERIES

Late Nite Catechism is an uproarious piece of theater that takes audience members back – sometimes nostalgically, sometimes fearfully – to the children they once were.  The irrepressible Sister teaches an adult catechism class to a roomful of “students” (the audience).  Over the course of the play, Sister goes from benevolent instructor, rewarding the “students” for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and laminated saint cards, to authoritative drill sergeant.  These abrupt mood swings are bound to strike a resonant chord with everyone who survived the ups and downs of going to school with an omniscient authoritarian at the helm.

MEN ARE FROM MARS – WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS LIVE! - Arizona Broadway Theatre - September 27-30, 2018



THE ENCORE ROOM at ABT SERIES

The Off-Broadway hit comedy Men Are From Mars – Women Are From Venus LIVE!, is a one-man fusion of theatre and stand-up, and is a light-hearted theatrical comedy based on the New York Times #1 best-selling book of the last decade by John Gray.

bedroom. This hysterical show will have couples elbowing each other all evening as they see themselves on
stage. Sexy and fast-paced, this show is definitely for adults, but will leave audiences laughing and giggling like little kids!

When Mars and Venus collide, the adventures are earth-shatteringly hysterical. It’s a great recipe for a date night out: a little storytelling blended with some comedy and a dash of sage wisdom from the book. A delicious evening of entertainment!
