End of Year Review by
Jeanie K. Smith​

A twisty, funny, supernatural comedy
about life, death, and keeping the beat.
When the Egyptian Lord of the Dead 
drunkenly crashes the annual camping
trip of four middle-aged metal-music
fans, ​will the result be the best male
bonding weekend ever? Or its last? ​Light the campfire, cue the drumming, and toss in a few heart-stopping surprises. It’s a long night of the soul—hot dogs optional.

6th Street Playhouse

Set in a courtroom in New York’s
Bellevue Hospital, the story follows a
high-priced call girl incarcerated on a
charge for killing a violent “John”.
A court appointed psychiatrist and an
aggressive prosecutor say she is unfit to stand trial. As testimony from experts, physicians and her parents unfolds, she attempts to prove to the judge that she isn’t “nuts” and to stand trial for manslaughter. A Broadway hit, Nuts has been called the best courtroom drama since Witness for the Prosecution.

Two young women face off in a
courtroom, locked in a battle of wills
and theologies. One, radicalized
online, is zealously committed to her
cause. The other, her prosecutor,
lives the faith the other professes
to understand. Their edgy exchanges
create the escalating tension of a true legal thriller. A brilliant new work by an up-and-coming young female playwright that’s making waves on the national stage.
