At a refined bachelor flat trouble is brewing! In Oscar Wilde’s most beloved and endlessly delightful classic, Jack is in love with Gwendolen, Algernon is in love with Cecily. But Gwendolen and Cecily are both in love with Ernest, who in fact does not exist. In a tangle of mistaken identity and delicious wordplay, the lovers also face the indomitable force of Lady Bracknell. Full of sparkling wit, provocative remarks and with satirical humor at every turn, this truly is one the most loved and enduringly popular plays of all time, brought to new life with ATC's panache.

Meet the Wyeths, a seemingly-perfect upper middle class family replete with wealth, political influence and A-list connections “living the dream” in Palm Springs. Then their daughter Brooke arrives home for the holidays to reveal the impending publication of her 'tell-all' memoir. In this critically acclaimed Broadway hit the truth crackles with wit, razor-sharp one-liners, a fierce cast of characters, and a storyline that grabs you from the opening scene to the riveting conclusion.

Stampeding elephants! Raging typhoons! Runaway trains! Pack your bags for the trip of a lifetime. In 1872 London, Phileas Fogg believes that, with modern transportation, it's now possible to travel around the world in 80 days. Impossible! It's a whirlwind journey filled with exotic locales and great fun. Beware! There's villainy, a damsel in distress and narrow escapes. Jules Verne's masterpiece will keep you on the edge of your seat and rolling in the aisles in this whirlwind adventure across seven continents.

One of the sexiest, intelligent, most acclaimed new plays in recent Broadway history. Venus in Fur introduces us to Vanda, a startlingly talented young actress determined to land the lead in a new play based on a classic erotic novel. When Vanda shows up hours late for her appointment, she knows she may have blown her chances. Her emotionally charged audition for Thomas, the demanding playwright/director, becomes an electrifying game of cat and mouse that blurs the lines between fantasy and reality, seduction and power, love and sex.
