The Mousetrap, January 4, 2013-February 3. 2013, by Agatha Christie. Directed by Eric C. Stein. In the dead of winter, a suspicious group of travelers is stranded in a remote guest house.

The Cemetery Club, February 22, 2013-March 24, 2013, by Ivan Menchell. Directed by Roy Hammond. In surmounting the day-to-day emotional hurdles of living without a loved one, three feisty widows quarrel, heal, date again, and cope with further loss in this charming, laughter-filled, bittersweet comedy about life and friendship.

A penniless producer and con artist desperately seeks a financial backer for a Broadway extravaganza that is destined to become a sure-fire hit.
