Souvenir
Presented by: The REP - Pittsburgh Playhouse
Florence Foster Jenkins was an eccentric wealthy socialite whose utter inability to carry a tune never prevented her from holding recitals at the Ritz Carlton or selling out Carnegie Hall. Told through the eyes of her accompanist, Cosme McMoon, Stephen Temperley's hilariously off-key Souvenir has been called "the funniest show on Broadway since The Producers." It's a wonderful and poignant journey through her performances that were the talk of New York. Tome' Cousin directs.

Prussia: 1866
Presented by: The REP - Pittsburgh Playhouse
Passionate young scholar Friedrich "Fritz" Nietzsche reveres the tutelage of his mentor, Heinrich. But perhaps not as much as he enjoys the pleasure of Heinrich's wife, Mariska. The forceful, farcical Prussia: 1866 is the wildly inventive, uproarious concoction by Pittsburgh's Gab Cody. Set after the Austro-Prussian war but before the advent of feminism, Prussia: 1866 makes its world premiere at The REP.

Endless Lawns
Presented by: The REP - Pittsburgh Playhouse
Returning to his old stomping grounds in Connecticut, Graham creates a flurry of chaos as he encourages his aged childhood friends, the Gregson twins, to capitalize on the bygone acting career of their dearly departed father. Meanwhile, Ray waxes nostalgic about his days of mowing the lawn at the old family manse. A collision of tragedy, comedy and cocktails, Anthony McKay's Endless Lawns is directed by Greg Lehane in its world premiere.
