“I couldn’t be more excited to launch our 15th season with three rarely seen Noël Coward delights performed by a truly extraordinary cast. The wit and charm and music of these short plays will make for a unique, celebratory evening,” said director Berger.

The evening begins at 7:30 PM with complimentary spirits and light bites in Bar Thalia with the cast and special guests. The performance will start, appropriately, at 8:30 PM.
