    Master abstract expressionist Mark Rothko landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art, a series of murals for New York’s famed Four Seasons Restaurant. For the next two years, Rothko works feverishly in his studio on the Bowery with his young assistant, Ken. When Ken gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could become his undoing. RED is a searing portrait of an artist’s ambition and vulnerability as he tries to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting. RED is the winner of the 2010 Tony Award.

    COMEDY: Welcome to the Dark Ages in Priseaux, France, where everything is really, really bad and the monastery’s patron saint hasn’t worked a miracle in thirteen years. Threatened by the success of a rival church and a visit from the Pope, a group of desperate monks look to a shady, one-eyed minstrel, to teach them outrageous ways to make their own miracles.

    The Story: The river flooded again last week. The chandler’s shop just burned to the ground. Nobody’s heard of the wheelbarrow yet. And Ste. Foy, the patron of the local monastery, hasn’t worked a miracle in thirteen years. In other words, the Dark Ages still look pretty dark. All eyes turn to the Pope, whose promised visit will surely encourage other pilgrims to make the trek and restore the abbey to its former glory. That is, until a rival church claims to possess the relics of Ste. Foy—and “their” bones are working miracles. All seems lost until the destitute monks take a lesson from a larcenous one-eyed minstral, who teaches them an outrageous new way to pay old debts.
    “A lightning-fast farce, rich in both verbal and physical humor.” —American Theatre. “Everything fits snugly in this funny, endearing black comedy. Hollinger understands how to balance verbal and physical humor, how to sketch personality in a few deft strokes, how to pause here and there to allow his audience to catch its breath, how to bring on a new character at just the right time, and how to write dialogue that’s an artful blend of the mock-formal and the anachronistically breezy. A piece of remarkably dexterous craftsmanship.” —Philadelphia Inquirer. “A farcical romp, scintillating and irreverent.” —Philadelphia Weekly.

    SUNSET BOULEVARD weaves a magnificent tale of faded glory and unfulfilled ambition. Silent film movie star Norma Desmond longs for a return to the big screen, having been discarded by tinsel town with the advent of ‘talkies.’ Her glamour has faded in all but her mind. When she meets struggling Hollywood screen-writer Joe Gillis in dramatic circumstances, their subsequent passionate and volatile relationship leads to an unforeseen and tragic conclusion

    Master abstract expressionist Mark Rothko landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art, a series of murals for New York’s famed Four Seasons Restaurant. For the next two years, Rothko works feverishly in his studio on the Bowery with his young assistant, Ken. When Ken gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could become his undoing. RED is a searing portrait of an artist’s ambition and vulnerability as he tries to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting. RED is the winner of the 2010 Tony Award.

Silent film movie star Norma Desmond longs for a return to the big screen, having been discarded by tinsel town with the advent of ‘talkies.’ Her glamour has faded in all but her mind. When she meets struggling Hollywood screen-writer Joe Gillis in dramatic circumstances, their subsequent passionate and volatile relationship leads to an unforeseen and tragic conclusion

    A suburban housewife, shell-shocked by the post 9/11 reality, finds herself irresistibly drawn to her son’s tutor, a handsome young man with political leanings far different from her own. A bizarre series of events blows the lid off her previously sheltered existence. A slightly zany comedy that peels back the layers of these unique individuals. You may find yourself later thinking, if I had just paid attention closer would I have seen the surprise ending coming?
