2014 - AMERICAN SHORTS




















JUNE 22 & 23 - 8PM, JUNE 24 - 5PM


Dames sheathed in satin, guys with secrets, and the gags come slathered in soy sauce in this flimsy film spoof.  - Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
ADRIFT IN MACAO
Book and Lyrics by Christopher Durang
Music by Peter Melnick



Mixing together farce, camp and tongue-in-cheek wit, Adrift in Macao spins the tale of five quirky characters stranded in a Casablanca-like locale in the Far East. Set in 1952 Macao, China, everyone that comes to Macao is waiting for something, and though none of them know exactly what that is, they all hang around to find out. The characters include your film noir standards, like Lureena, the curvaceous and wised-up dame, who luckily bumps into Rick Shaw, the cynical surf and turf casino owner her first night in town. She ends up getting a job singing in his night club – perhaps for no reason other than the fact that she looks great in a slinky dress. And don’t forget about Mitch, the American who has just been framed for murder by the mysterious villain McGuffin. Complete with intrigue, silliness and a playfully melodic score, it is the newest work from a gifted theater composer and grandson of Richard Rodgers and one of America's funniest playwrights.
