At their 10-year college reunion, Aisha and Holly meet by chance. Is this the first time or has it just been a long time? They can't agree. Aisha is a black, successful playwright; she's on the cover of the alumni magazine. Holly is a white, struggling stand-up comedian; she's here for the free drinks. Aisha's most successful play bears a striking resemblance to a tragic event in Holly's life. Is it a coincidence or is it theft? As a rainstorm interrupts the outdoor reunion, they find themselves trapped inside, together. They both have a story that they've been telling themselves about what happened all those years ago and they're both willing to fight for the truth in the present.

Leading Ladies is a sparkling all-women cabaret musical incorporating seven separate historical vignettes onto a single set, a backstage dressing room.
At the opening of the play, Mary, a young actor tortured by doubts about her ability, debates whether or not she should abandon her career in “The Voice of My Critics.” The dressing room comes alive with ghosts of famous women actors, and one by one they reenact critical moments in their own careers, when they had to confront fear and doubt.
Finally, Mary, with the help of the crusty stage manager and the feisty older actor Edith, reaches a resolution to her dilemma.

Called “the funniest farce ever written,” Noises Off presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing’s On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.
"The most dexterously realized comedy ever about putting on a comedy. A spectacularly funny, peerless backstage farce. This dizzy, well-known romp is festival of delirium." - The New York Times
"The funniest farce ever written! Never before has side-splitting taken on a meaning dangerously close to the non-metaphorically medical." - New York Post
