A long-running hit off-Broadway that brought stardom to Bernadette Peters, this campy show is based on the nostalgia of Hollywood musicals of the 30's. It's big time New York, into which sweet little Ruby from a faraway Hometown, U.S.A. has come to make it big on Broadway. Who should she chance to meet but another boy from Hometown, U.S.A.: Dick, a sailor, who also has ambitions as a songwriter. Ruby begins in the chorus, and by the end of the day, in true Hollywood fashion, Dick saves her doomed Broadway show with a smash tune, as Ruby becomes a star on the deck of a battleship which just happens to be passing by. Selected as "Best Musical of the Year" by Time, Newsweek, and Outer Critics Circle.

Sara Goode, an enormously successful American woman working as the British representative of a major Hong Kong bank, is about to celebrate her fifty-fourth birthday, and she isn't exactly too happy about it. Firmly ensconced in her lovely London home, she leads a quiet, almost cold, expatriate life with her daughter, Tess. For the birthday celebration, her two sisters, Gorgeous Teitelbaum (Dr. Gorgeous, loving housewife and mother, of Newton, MA, who has her own call-in radio advice program and hopes to make the leap to TV), and Pfeni Rosensweig (peripatetic third-world travel writer, alas, unmarried), are expected to arrive at any moment. As if this weren't causing Sara enough stress, Mervyn Kant shows up at her door, and she doesn't even know the man, who, at first sight, is instantly smitten with her. Mervyn is a furrier, and a friend of Geoffrey's, the on-again, off-again, bi-sexual lover of Pfeni. After her sisters arrive for the celebration, Tess, and her boyfriend, Tom, turn up and advise her that they're planning on rushing off to his ancestral Lithuania for reasons of political protest. Next to arrive is Nicholas, the stuffy Brit whom Sara has been "seeing" although he seems somewhat anti-Semitic. All of this adds up to a rather interesting evening, which leads to unexpected romance, suspected partings, recriminations, reconciliations and, above all, newfound love and acceptance.

A dark drama, vividly portrayed by Liz Taylor and Richard Burton in the sixties, features George, a disillusioned professor, and Martha, his brutally acerbic wife who invite a younger couple over for drinks. George and Martha appear to be the perfect party hosts--they have a well-stocked bar and each possesses a rapier-sharp wit.
But when Nick, a new college professor on campus, and Honey, his mousy young wife arrive, their verbal sparring quickly degenerates into scathing attacks on each other -- and their guests.
Drawn together in their horror, Nick and Honey soon find themselves sucked into the spiral of buried resentments and unspoken rage that George and Martha have unleashed. As the seemingly perfect marriage of the young couple begins to reveal its many flaws, George and Martha find their own twisted bond within the mutual rancor.

A hotel mistakenly books 2 newly wed couples into the same honeymoon suite. One couple, from the Midwest, is young and sweet. The groom's mother calls frequently advising what's on TV at any given moment. Their naiveté puts them at the mercy of the hotel's larcenous bellhop, who often appears at their elbow looking for yet another tip. The other couple is older, tougher and very street smart. This groom's idea of fashionable attire is wearing extra gold chains under his brightly colored, half unbuttoned sport shirt. Both couples dig in their heels when they learn there are no other rooms available citywide.
Will they share the room? How will they share it? And who might share which bed with whom? As the misunderstandings pile up on one another,
the comical situations stack up to a night of laugher.
