The Alley returns to the removated Hubbard stage with this international hit.
One Man, Two Guvnors
October 2 - November 1, 2015


Winner of the Critics Circle Award and multiple Tony and Drama Desk Awards, this glorious comedy is a unique laugh-out-loud mix of satire, songs, and stupendous physical comedy. One Man, Two Guvnors, by Richard Bean is based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni with songs by Grant Olding and directed by Gregory Boyd. Previews begin October 2, Opening Night October 7, with performances continuing through November 1, 2015.

"We are excited to open the newly transformed Hubbard Stage at the Alley with One Man, Two Guvnors" said Artistic Director Gregory Boyd. "Richard Bean’s brilliant adaptation of a classic comedy plays to the strengths of the Alley Theatre’s Resident Company and is a fantastic blend of farce, brilliant language and physical comedy."

In the heart of 1960s' England, charming and doltish Francis, fired from his pop band, unexpectedly finds himself with two new jobs and two new bosses, who are connected to each other in wildly improbable ways. He has to keep them from discovering each other – and that turns out to be not so simple.

The Catastrophic Theatre Presents The Danube

The Danube
by María Irene Fornés
September 25 - October 17, 2015

Thursdays - Saturdays at 8 p.m.
All tickets Pay-What-You-Can

In the year 2000 the now-defunct Infernal Bridegroom Productions (IBP) presented the Houston premiere of The Danube, one of most memorable productions of that company’s 14-year history. Catastrophic artistic director Jason Nodler, who founded IBP, teamed with Bobbindoctrin Puppet Theatre artistic director Joel Orr, to direct four of Houston’s finest actors (Amy Bruce, Troy Schulze, Charlie Scott, and Kyle Sturdivant) in a production of the play that longtime Village Voice theatre critic Michael Feingold called “One of the most startlingly original and devastating things I can ever remember seeing on a stage.”

Of the Houston production The Houston Press wrote, “Especially gratifying are those moments when something shifts as the crowd is laughing, and everyone suddenly feels a little sick for having done so.”
15 years later Bruce, Schulze, Scott, Sturdivant, Orr, and Nodler reunite to create a new and improved version of this extraordinary play by one of the most intrepid playwrights of our modern era.

The Glass Menagerie

Island ETC (East-End Theatre Company) will present The Glass Menagerie, the haunting ‘memory’ play by Tennessee Williams
September 18th through October 10th.

This classic of the American theatre is a must-see production!

Tennessee Williams rose from obscurity in 1945 when his semi-autobiographical play, THE GLASS MENAGERIE, opened on Broadway.
The play is about a Depression-era family struggling in a small apartment that is too cramped to house the larger than life dreams of its inhabitants. In it, there’s Tom, the restless dreamer, his fragile, pathologically shy sister Laura, and their domineering mother, Amanda, a faded Southern belle.
