“To Kill A Mockingbird” It’s a sin to kill a mockingbird. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel that, 50 years later, still prods our national moral conscience. A 1930’s Alabaman town’s history of racism and the struggle for equality has an indelible effect on a young girl’s understanding of right and wrong.

“Measure for Measure” by Shakespeare. Who legislates morality? The Duke’s authoritarian deputy, Angelo, is hell-bent on stamping out moral decay. Angelo is sternly incorruptible—until he meets Isabella, a religious novice whose desirability arouses him. Rauch’s vigorous, modern production of Shakespeare’s tragicomedy is a toxic mix of our timeless obsessions—sex, religion and politics.

“Imaginary Invalid” by Moliere. Is there a doctor in the house? The wealthy Argan is a housebound hypochondriac with every disease in the book. Lurking around are quacks only too happy to (mis)treat him. Family troubles, including a money grubbing wife and two headstrong daughters, add to Argan’s miseries. Original songs, satirical bite and the requisite bawdiness. Warning: Excessive laughter may be hazardous to your health.
