The Telephone

Libretto and Music by Gian Carlo Menotti

Lucy and Ben are young lovers. Before leaving on business, he pays her a visit. Ben wants to ask Lucy to marry him, but his attempts are thwarted by a seemingly endless parade of incoming calls for Lucy. Ben tries everything short of telephonicide to get Lucy’s attention but only angers her. Will she ever get off the phone? Will he ever get down on one knee? Get your tickets today.

The Stronger

Libretto by Richard Hart from the play by August Strindberg

Estelle: Lori Ann Fuller

Estelle and Lisa meet for drinks. One does all the talking. The other does all the listening. We discover that one woman’s husband is the other woman’s lover. Who’s talking? Who’s listening? Who is the stronger person? You’ll have to see it to believe it.
