When a university athletic department returns to the big business of college football after its NCAA probation is lifted, staff conflict and a new scandal involving a freshman tutor threaten to blow up the whole program. From the playwright of White Guy on the Bus and The Outgoing Tide comes this incendiary and timely new drama inspired by true events.  ​

October 17–November 4, 2018

This devastatingly funny show follows a day in the life of Sam Peliczowski, an out-of-work actor who mans the red-hot reservation line at Manhattan’s number-one restaurant. Coercion, threats, bribes, histrionics—a cast of desperate callers will stop at nothing in their zeal to land a prime reservation, or the right table. Amid the barrage, Sam’s got his own needs to contend with. While juggling scheming socialites, name-dropping wannabes, fickle celebrities and egomaniacal bosses, can he manage to look out for himself? ​

The Year is 1965. The pulse of a changing era lures Cindy from Middle America to the swirl of New York. Set against the backdrop of women’s liberation, the civil rights movement, and the Vietnam War, she pursues her passion of making a difference in the world. Unexpected friends, lovers, careers, and conflicts—­and how the events of the day affect their relationships—are told through classic music from that era. Featuring the songs of Petula Clark and other hit-makers of the day, including “Downtown,” “If I Can Dream,” “The Boy from New York City,” and “You Don’t Own Me,” they’re all “A Sign of the Times!”

Starring Clare O’Malley from Hetty Feather and Something Wicked This Way Comes, this epic, transcendent story brings renewed life to one of history’s greatest heroines as she pushes the boundaries of a society dominated by political and religious forces.
