Meet the Mississippi McGrath sisters: Lenny, the oldest, is unmarried and facing the prospect of living the rest of her life as an “old maid”; Meg, the middle daughter, has struggled mightily in pursuit of a singing career; and Babe, the baby of the family, is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach. Crimes of the Heart, Beth Henley’s Pulitzer-winning dark comedy, examines the bonds of sisterhood as the three siblings gather together to escape their past transgressions and to take hold of their futures.

Carly Speranza has always pined to star in the title role of the opera Carmen! As with many an artist, landing that coveted part is easier said than done, so when a phone call seemingly destined by fate pushes Carly into the limelight, it looks like a dream come true! Unfortunately, that chance of a lifetime leads her into a state fair gig, where the contract with her country music band – known as The Car Men – puts her in the precarious position between earning stock and becoming the laughingstock. Ross Carter’s family-friendly original musical promises to please patrons of all ages.

As an antidote to a couple of rough pandemic years, Pull-Tight revisits this beloved audience favorite which, either in the original version or as The Female Odd Couple, has been performed on our stage six times. The fun begins as fastidious and tightly wound Felix Unger, just separated from his wife, moves in with recently divorced Oscar Madison, whose slovenly and careless ways probably contributed to the breakup of his own marriage. A cast of poker-playing buddies and a date night with the Pigeon sisters round out an evening of hilarity that is also full of heart.
“The Odd Couple” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
