Book, Music & Lyrics by Donald Fowler
Sponsored by Frost Bank, Pinnacle, WaterTower Theatre Board of Directors, Creep Producer's Circle
Creep is the world premiere of Dallas playwright/composer Donald Fowler’s original thriller musical. Exploring many of the dark truths surrounding the fabled “Jack the Ripper,” and metaphorically examining how the individual, when dehumanized, will adapt, or hide from truth in order to survive, Creep is sure to take your breath way. Nationally-acclaimed director Kate Galvin will direct this thrilling season opener. Mature subject matter.
coming soon - main stage
November 20 - December 13, 2015
By Michele Riml
In collaboration with Stage West
Michele Riml’s hit romantic comedy comes to our main stage by popular demand following its limited sold-out run in our studio series last season. Henry and Alice, married for 25-years are trying to find a way to spice up their dormant love life with a weekend in a swanky hotel room. Alice brings a copy of ‘Sex for Dummies’ and a willingness to try new things. Henry brings only his bad attitude. They share their fantasies, exchange recriminations, and take turns confessing the details of their personal midlife crises as the play moves from comic to serious and back to comic again. Sexy Laundry is a touching and hilarious journey that will resonate with many.
