Use both of your tickets for the same show, or use them individually to see two separate shows. The diverse slate of plays includes the off-Broadway hit "Honky", an inspired satire of race relations that finds sales of trendy basketball shoes suddenly tripling among rich, white teens when a young African-American is shot for his pair of them. In" Steal Heaven", the late poster child for '60s radicalism Abbie Hoffman conducts a boot camp in heaven for activists who have the chutzpah required to go back to Earth to become new agents of change. "Oedipus El Rey" is a Chicano retelling of Sophocles' great tragedy about a man destined to kill his father and marry his mother. "Uncanny Valley" explores the disquieting effects of rapidly nearing artificial intelligence. Then, Tony winners Gregory Jbara and Alice Ripley star in the world premiere of "Everybody's Talkin': The Music of Harry Nilsson". This musical revue from the creators of "Suds" spotlights "the most famously anonymous composer and performer of our time," Harry Nilsson, the two-time Grammy winner behind such songs as "Everybody's Talkin'," "Without You," "One" and "Coconut." See the description for the season schedule.

     Four moms with eight children among them certainly had material galore for their play "The MOMologues". This hilarious show, by Lisa Rafferty, Stefanie Cloutier and Sheila Eppolito, reveals with loving humor what all mothers know but don't always talk about regarding labor and delivery, caring for newborns, adjusting to a second child, disciplining toddlers, dealing with picky eaters, gender differences and much more. If you're a parent, you'll laugh out loud at the show's depiction of making a "simple" trip to the store, or the mind-numbing effect of reading the same book over ... and over ... and over in this lovingly sassy tribute to "the toughest job you'll ever love."

     "I'm an alcoholic. I'm a drug addict. I'm homosexual. I'm a genius." Thus Truman Capote, the man who sketched ruthless killers in "In Cold Blood" and exquisite socialites in "Breakfast at Tiffany's", once famously described himself. These four facets of his most remarkable personality -- not to mention numerous others -- are explored in "Tru", a one-man show adapted from the author's own words and work. It's 1975, a week before Christmas, and Capote is holed up in his Manhattan apartment, weathering the social storm brought on by the publication of an excerpt of his upcoming novel, the scandalous "Answered Prayers". Aided by copious amounts of pills, vodka, cocaine and chocolate truffles, one of America's greatest literary figures muses about his checkered life and career in this two-act monologue starring Todd Blakesley.

Based on historical relationships from 12th century England, James Goldman's "The Lion in Winter" takes family drama to a whole new level. Political arguments and sibling rivalries take on entirely different meanings when the actual throne is at stake.

     This 1986 American mystery thriller, written and directed by David Lynch and starring Kyle MacLachlan, Isabella Rossellini, Dennis Hopper and Laura Dern, exhibits elements of both film noir and surrealism. Although initially panned by some mainstream critics, the film is now widely acclaimed, and earned Lynch his second Academy Award nomination for Best Director. The film centers on eccentric college student Jeffrey Beaumont (MacLachlan), who, returning from visiting his ill father in the hospital, comes across a human ear in a field in his hometown of Lumberton. He proceeds to investigate the ear with help from a high school student, Sandy Williams (Dern), who provides him with information and leads from her father, a local police detective. Jeffrey's investigation draws him deeper into his hometown's seedy underworld, and leads him into a sexual relationship with alluring torch singer Dorothy Vallens (Rossellini). He also uncovers a psychotic criminal, Frank Booth (Hopper). "Blue Velvet" was ranked as one of the 100 Greatest Films of All Time by "Entertainment Weekly" in 1999 and was chosen by the American Film Institute as one of the greatest mystery films ever made.

     The golden age of radio comes to life in the nostalgia-filled holiday favorite "The 1940's Radio Hour". It's December 1942, the world is at war and "Strike Up the Band" and "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" are topping the charts. New York's little-radio-station-that-could, WOV, is about to air its final broadcast of the holiday-themed "Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade" -- that is if the show's harried producer can corral a drunk lead singer, a delivery boy looking for his big break, a second banana who dreams of singing a ballad, and a trumpet-playing sound-effects man who chooses a fighter plane over Glenn Miller. Nominated for five Drama Desk Awards when it premiered on Broadway in 1980, "The 1940's Radio Hour" is chock-full of favorites tunes -- including "Ain't She Sweet," "Blue Moon," "You Go to My Head" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" -- that'll guarantee you have a swingin' Christmas.

     Everybody knows the story of Ebenezer Scrooge's miraculous redemption, but what about his late business partner, Jacob Marley? Marley, after all, was the ghost responsible for the old miser's transformation, so isn't it time he got a little recognition? A funny and heartwarming show, "Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol" takes you behind the scenes of Charles Dickens' holiday classic. Chained and shackled, Marley is condemned to a hellish eternity. He's even given his own private tormentor: a malicious little hell-sprite who thoroughly enjoys his work. To escape his own chains, Marley must first redeem Scrooge. So begins a journey of laughter and terror, redemption and renewal, during which Scrooge's heart is opened -- but not before Marley discovers his own.
