Special added performance September 4th at 3pm!

To compensate for the cancelled August 27th performances of  Olive and the Bitter Herbs we have added an additional performance Sunday September 4th at 3pm. This will be the final performance of Olive and the Bitter Herbs.


July 26 – September 4
Opening Night
August 16, 2011
A world premiere by Charles Busch
Directed by Mark Brokaw
Featuring Dan Butler, David Garrison, Julie Halston, Marcia Jean Kurtz, and Richard Masur
In Tony Award®-nominated playwright Charles Busch’s latest comedy, Olive and the Bitter Herbs, actress Olive Fisher sees a ghost in her mirror, but that’s the least of her problems. Her radiator’s broken, the couple next door stink up her apartment with exotic cheeses, and the highlight of her long career was a sausage commercial in the ’80s. While she’s not the most popular tenant, her neighbors invite themselves over and she finds herself hosting a Passover Seder. But are Olive’s guests there to see her or the mysterious man in her mirror? Olive and the Bitter Herbs is a comedy about connecting to the people in our lives—those with us and those who have passed on.
