Everyone wants to know, “What’s the matter with Robert?” Since becoming an empty-nester, the usually solid and dependable professor seems to be falling apart — just like the old red maple tree in the back yard. When friends get together for a cheer-him-up dinner, Robert announces he’s had an epiphany that will rock the world of the stalwart suburban gang around the table. Things get shaken and stirred as the cocktails and confessions flow, building to a hilarious crescendo when an unexpected guest shows up begging another question, “Guess who’s coming to dinner?” Written by Capital Region veteran actor-writer, David Bunce, this uproarious comedy, set in the suburbs of Albany, was the runaway hit of the 2016 NEXT ACT! New Play Summit. Tickets https://tickets.proctors.org/TheatreManager/95/online?performance=30011 Dinner after the show at https://www.dpbrasserie.com/ (walking distance).

In an artsy small town, an unlikely collection of strangers decides to sign up for Marty's "Adult Creative Drama" class. As their relationships develop over the course of the summer, the awkward, seemingly silly theater games they play generate real-life drama. “By the play’s end we seem to see to the very bottom of these souls, and feel how the artificial intimacy of the acting class has shaped their lives in substantial ways.” NY Times. Playwright Annie Baker won the Pulitzer Prize in 2015. Director: Jacqueline Donnaruma is a director and teacher in the Capital Region and NYC.

If a young man makes a mistake early on in his political career, should he be held accountable for it twenty years later? Oscar Wilde tackles this question with his trademark wit and style in An Ideal Husband. NorthEast Theatre Ensemble will be bringing Wilde’s delightful 1893 play to live in an immersive site-specific performance at the Ten Broeck Mansion in Albany from April 11-28. This environmental production will take place in various spaces throughout the mansion, so come prepared to move around and enjoy cocktails, a party at the Chiltern’s house, and tea with some formidable (even ruthless) women. Please note that seating is EXTREMELY limited, advanced reservations are highly recommended. ** There will be no refunds, If you find you must cancel, we will do our best to find another night for you or hold tickets for one of our other productions.
