Set in a small Texas town, Daddy's Dyin' concerns the reunion of a family gathered to await the imminent death of their patriarch, who has recently suffered a physically as well as mentally disabling stroke. But it is not the story of the impending demise of the father or of the drafting of his will ... it's a story of a rebirth of the spirit of the family unit.

"It's a fast, delicious, easy tale with funny moments, tense moments, touching moments, and characters you care about."
The Hollywood Reporter

"A masterful comedy."

"A well written piece of mainstream theatre that's consistently funny and occasionally touching."

I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change
Book & lyrics by Joe DiPietro
Music by Jimmy Roberts
Feb 13-Mar 1, 2015

Directed by Doug James
Musical Director: Melony Dodson

The second-longest running Off Broadway musical. Nominated for the Outer Critics Circle Award as Outstanding Off-Broadway musical in 1997.

This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum know as 'the relationship.' Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set.

This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, 'Say, what are you doing Saturday night?'

"Hilarious! The most entertaining show on or off Broadway!"
Gannett Newspapers

"If this show were a blind date, you'd feel relieved, grateful and pleasantly surprised."
Newsday

"So smartly conceived...catchy tunes and witty lyrics."
Variety

An Inspector Calls
by J. B. Priestley
Apr 17-May 3, 2015

It is 1912 in an English industrial city. A young girl commits suicide and an eminently respectable British family is subject to a routine inquiry in connection with the death.

A mysterious inspector calls to interrogate the family, and during the course of his questioning, each member of the family is implicated lightly or deeply in the girl's undoing.

An Inspector Calls is one of J. B. Priestley's best known works for the stage and considered to be one of the classics of mid-20th-century English theatre.

Patron Testimonial

"We absolutely LOVED the show ... it was a delight, perfectly cast, costumed so well that additional sets were not needed, could have been an off Broadway production right here in K-ville. When I was in NYC in Dec., I saw 3 off Broadway shows which made me appreciate TKD even more ... including the venue! When I tell people that TKD is as good as NYC, I know what I am talking about!"
- L. Denton, Knoxville
