BuyTickets_240px-no-feeClassics Theater of Rochester presents the third in the series of George Bernard Shaw’s early comedies which he entitled “Plays Unpleasant”. In “The Philanderer” Shaw’s philandering alter-ego gets involved with a widow, another lady, her sister, both of their fathers and a fumbling doctor, with hilarious results, all the while lampooning “conventional” Victorian mores. The play is directed by James Landers,

Performances: September 4th, 5th, and 6th at 8PM, Sept 7th at 2PM. Adult $15/Student $12.

These four original works by Straw Mat Writers are bound together by a single straw mat, weaving characters in a plotline that challenges historic images of women. One story brushes against the next, teasing the audience, prolonging satisfaction, asking questions about what it means to desire, to submit, to consent, to trust, to seize power, to relinquish power and to play.

“Irreverent, funny, thoughtful, I loved it.”

“You guys really did make me feel and I am not okay with that.”

“Oh god the puppies! Those poor, demented, doomed, puppies.”

“Sickos like you shouldn’t be let out in public.”

Bernhardt On Broadway: The Musical

This show is part of the First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival

click HERE for tickets

“Bernhardt on Broadway” is a one-woman musical with twelve showstopping songs about the Divine Sarah Bernhardt. The play is set in the late 1890s when Bernhardt was at the height of her career. She addresses the audience in a relaxed and forthright way, talking about her present and reminiscing about her past – personally and professionally. Carol Dunitz, who wrote the music, script, and lyrics for the show, read close to one hundred books in French and English as well as countless articles and reviews before starting work on “Bernhardt on Broadway.” Her extensive research ensures the audience gains a thorough understanding of this eccentric star and what motivated her to persist against all odds.
