Sophie Tucker: The Last Of The Red Hot MamasBy Kathy Halenda, Richard Hopkins and Jack Fournier
November 19 – December 29
Spend an intimate evening with Sophie Tucker: The Last of the Red Hot Mamas! She was America's Queen of the double entendre. Naughty? Yes, in a fun-loving way with a wink or two, that's never graphic or obscene. Take delight in the woman who inspired generations of comedians (including Bette Midler) and celebrate musical hits from the 1920s, including "Real Women Have Curves," "Living Alone and I Like It," "After You've Gone," "Fifty Million Frenchmen Can't Be Wrong," "My Yiddishe Momme," "Life Begins at Forty" and, her uplifting signature song, "Some of These Days."

Driving Miss DaisyBy Alfred Uhry
January 14 – February 2
Take a ride down memory lane and get ready to experience the magic that made Driving Miss Daisy a Pulitzer Prize-winning hit and an Academy Award-winning film. It's Atlanta, 1948. When the elderly Miss Daisy has an accident, her son hires Hoke, an African American, to be her chauffeur. At first Miss Daisy will have none of it. On their journey however, the two become friends. Driving Miss Daisy is an iconic tale of pride, changing times and the transformative power of friendship that has warmed the hearts of millions.
Beautiful BoyBy Eric Conger
February 18 – March 9
When Bill's adoptive parents die and he is laid off from his job, he feels lost. His need to find out who he is and where he comes from grows stronger. The search for his birth parents takes him from Missouri to Connecticut. What he finds shocks and disturbs him, but is he disappointed? This funny, suspenseful play tackles the plight of grown children lost in a closed system, where parents' rights trump their children's need to know.
The Rise And Fall Of Little VoiceBy Jim Cartwright
March 25 – April 13
Little Voice is a shy, reclusive girl who loves to sing. She desperately misses her deceased father and spends all her time in her room, singing along to his old record collection. She impersonates all his favorite divas: Shirley Bassey, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland and Dusty Springfield. When her mom meets a new man, he sees Little Voice as his ticket to success. All Little Voice wants is a normal life. She wants to be loved. This poignant and funny love story was a huge hit in the West End and became an Oscar-nominated movie.
I Love You, You're Perfect, Now ChangeBook and Lyrics by Joe DiPietro · Music by Jimmy Roberts

I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change is everything you have ever secretly thought about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives and in-laws, but were afraid to admit! This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the beginning of romance, to those who have dared to ask, 'Say, what are you doing Saturday night?' This perfect relationship musical ran for more than 5,000 performances Off-Broadway and has kept audiences laughing from London's West End to Beijing. Find love and laughter at the Walnut!
