Laughter on the 23rd Floor

January 17 - March 5, 2017

Undoubtedly one of America's most famous playwrights (he does have a Broadway theatre named for him after all!), Neil Simon has been behind popular Broadway works such as The Odd Couple, Barefoot in the Park and Come Blow Your Horn. However, it was in the fledgling medium of television where Simon really cut his teeth, having written scripts for Your Show of Shows starring Sid Caesar, working alongside Mel Brooks and Woody Allen. This 1993 comedy by Simon takes us into the writer's room of a hit 1950's television show, with all the conflict involved with their brash and arrogant star actor.

Garfield: The Musical with Cattitude

February 3 - 18, 2017

Everybody's favorite lazy, snarky and portly feline has made the leap to the stage in his very own musical! In a brand-new production especially for kids, this hour-long adventure sees Garfield attempt to plan an epic birthday party for himself. However, it would appear that all of his friends Arlene, Odie and Jon, and even his arch nemesis Nermal have all forgotten about it! With his feelings hurt, Garfield decides to take off and run away from his problems. But after a few near-misses, he realizes an important lesson; home is where the heart - and food - is!

The Importance of Being Earnest

March 14 - April 30, 2017

Witticisms and handbangs abound in Walnut Street Theatre's new production of Oscar Wilde's classic play The Importance of Being Earnest. A perfectly-pitched comedy of manners, injected with moments of broad farce and slapstick, it's the perfect showcase for Wilde's favorite past-time - de-contructing the trivial mores and rules of Victorian society.
