Christmas at the Edgewater by Victoria Racimo
Terry Menefee Gau
It's Christmas 1951 and famed Broadway actress and singer Gertrude Lawrence is performing a one-woman radio show at the Edgewater Beach Hotel in Chicago. The sight of a soldier in the audience causes her to pause in her performance. Memories of England before the first world war overwhelm her and, in a series of flashbacks, interlaced with songs and tunes of Christmases past, she recalls her early career in the theatre, and the very special role that Noel Coward played in her life. This one-woman play, performed by Richmond actress Terry Menefee Gau, and written and directed by Victoria Racimo, will transport you back to an earlier time through song and story.

Anna in the Tropics by Nilo Cruz
Virginia Premiere of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize winner for Drama
Take a trip in your mind's eye to Florida in the 1920's to a Cuban-American cigar factory, where 'lectors' are employed to educate and entertain the workers. The arrival of a new lector is cause for celebration, but when he begins to read aloud from Anna Karenina, he unwittingly becomes the catalyst in the lives of his avid listeners, for whom Tolstoy, the tropics and the American dream prove a volatile combination.
