It’s the early 80s, and a pair of sisters struggle over the fate of the family’s movie theatre, as video stores encroach and cable TV looms. Memories come to vivid life as they face some truths, and some selves, they’ve avoided all their lives.

One of the most beloved tales ever to come from Hollywood is being broadcast live in the late 40s.

A Jaded Dublin theatre critic obsessed with a young actress abandons everything to follow her to London. It doesn’t go well. But a chance meeting with a vampire leads to an unexpected new job that keeps him occupied most nights, anyway.

Bill Largess is simply delicious as the theater critic turned pimp for vampires in the weird one-man comedy St. Nicholas.

The Washington Post


3.31 – 4.24 / 2016

Three of the world’s greatest writers, Jefferson, Dickens, and Tolstoy all edited or adapted The Bible to suit their own views, and they just might have to pay for that! The dialogue and the ideas soar, as you might expect from these three, in this sizzlingly clever comedy.
