On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, Catherine finds herself struggling with the recent death of her father Robert, a brilliant but unstable mathematician. The arrival of her estranged sister and one of her father’s former graduate students, Hal, only complicates matters. As he searches through Robert’s work, Hal discovers a paradigm-shifting proof. Catherine must prove who wrote the proof while she continues to grapple with the most difficult problem of all: how much of her father’s madness – or genius – will she inherit? The winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play, Proof tells a heart-wrenching personal tale of love, loss, and an uncertain future.

When meek and modest floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles upon a new breed of plant, he is in for the surprise of his life! Only after dubbing the new flora Audrey II – in tribute his co-worker crush – does he discover the plant’s insatiable appetite… for blood, and eventually global domination! A deviously hilarious mash-up of sci-fi, horror, comedy, and rock-n-roll, this classically cheeky musical has devoured the hearts of theatergoers for over 30 years.

Based on the Emmy award-winning television movie by Reginald Rose.
Directed by Prof. Paul Bernstein

A young man of ethnic descent is on trial for murder. If found guilty by a panel of twelve jurors, the verdict will result in a mandatory death sentence.  Initially, all but one juror thinks the young man’s guilt is obvious. Personal differences divide the group and continue to escalate as the deliberations continue.  Soon the clarity of evidence and the very nature of a “fair trial” are called into question.  With additional use of filmic flashbacks, this tension-packed rendition of a classic play exposes an age-old problem, the unreliability of perception.  A poignant and timely production, Twelve Angry Jurors calls into question the prejudice and personal beliefs of the jurors and audiences alike.
