EXIT LAUGHING – Paul Elliott 

When the biggest highlight in your life for the past 30 years has been your weekly bridge night out with the "girls," what do you do when one of your foursome inconveniently dies? If you're Connie, Leona and Millie, three southern ladies from Birmingham, you do the most daring thing you've ever done. You "borrow" the ashes from the funeral home for one last card game, and the wildest, most exciting night of your lives involves a police raid, a stripper and a whole new way of looking at all the fun you can have when you're truly living.

1776  (The musical)

Book by Peter Stone

Music & Lyrics by Sherman Edwards

 

The seminal event in American history blazes to vivid life in this most unconventional of Broadway hits. The twist?  Our nation's founding fathers will be presented in a revolutionary, inspiring ALL-FEMALE, concert version! 1776 puts a human face on the pages of history and the human beings behind the national icons: proud, frightened, uncertain, irritable, charming, often petty and ultimately noble figures, determined to do the right thing for a fledgling nation.
