February 1 – 11:
Company, Stephen Sondheim’s groundbreaking modern musical, is a mature, intelligent, and wildly funny look at relationships, vulnerability, and living life.

March 1 – 11:
Handle with Care – Circumstances both hilarious and tragic bring together a young Israeli woman
who has little command of English, and
a young American man who has little
command of romance. Is their inevitable love an accident or destiny? Handle with Care was chosen as The New York Times Critics’ Pick. Show times/dates are as follows: Thursdays, March 1st and 8th at 7:30 pm; Saturdays, March 3rd and 10th at 7:30 pm; Sundays, March 4th and 11th at 2 pm and Thursday, March 8th at 2 pm.
The Dachau Album:
An Interfaith Holocaust Project with Avi Hoffman and Shari Unger
When Dachau concentration camp survivor Arnold Unger came to the United States in 1947, he brought a leather-bound album of 30 color drawings that show sequential narrative of life and death in the camp. The artwork was created by Roman Catholic Polish political prisoner Michael Porulski, who was liberated from Dachau and eventually died alone and penniless. This is the compelling story of these two men and relates the experience of the Holocaust in a way never depicted before. This new discovery is being revealed to the public for the first time. This program is made possible by a generous gift from Tom Gordon through the Ann Gordon Holocaust Fund established in honor of his mother. Show time and date as follows: Wednesday, April 11 at 2 pm. General Admission: $18, Member Pricing Not Available.
