Honky Tonk Laundry (Fall 2020)
The creator of The Marvelous Wonderettes brings us a brand new boot-scootin’ musical! After inheriting the Wishy Washy Washateria from her grandmother, Lana Mae hires Katie to help run the business, but the two soon join forces to convert their good ol’ laundromat into the town’s hottest honky-tonk. This hilarious musical is packed with a country song list that spans decades of classic and contemporary hits from “I Fall to Pieces” and “These Boots Are Made for Walkin” to “Take It Back” and “Wide Open Spaces”.
A Woman of the World (September 25 to October 11, 2020)
Mabel Loomis Todd was labeled a “woman of the world” for her free-wheeling and passionate embrace of life. An accomplished journalist and naturalist, she also held close confidence with one of America’s most famed and reclusive poets, Emily Dickinson and in fact, was the first editor of Dickinson’s poems. But Loomis’ story is largely lost to history in favor of a more marketable version of the Dickinson legacy. Rebecca Gilman brings to light Loomis’ lost story in a riveting look at a mysterious – perhaps even dangerous – woman. Scandalous revelations or reckless gossip – you get to decide for yourself in this one-woman tour-de-force staring the incomparable Sally Edmundson.
