This fast paced deeply insightful play follows a group of small-town Appalachian Georgia high schoolers as they grapple with big world issues of sex and power. A group of girls have started a controversial feminism club just as evidence is surfacing that one of their fathers is guilty of sexual assault. Meanwhile, their beloved hip English teacher is guiding the class through Arthur Miller’s, The Crucible, and his iconic interpretation of John Proctor as hero is brilliantly challenged by the young women. His own behavior may prove to be equally problematic. This play is disturbing, funny, timely, and ultimately a joyful celebration of courage.
John Proctor is the Villain is produced by special arrangement with and all authorized performance materials supplied by William Morris Endeavor Entertainment, LLC.

She Loves Me is a charmingly old school, full orchestra musical about trying to find a perfect match in an imperfect world. Based on Miklós László’s play Parfumerie, this warm and intimate romantic comedy is set in 1930s Budapest. Debuting on Broadway in 1964, with major revivals in 1993 and 2016, She Loves Me speaks to the timeless challenge of finding true love.
She Loves Me is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International, www.MTIshows.com.
