Our 2015 production of In-Laws, Outlaws completely SOLD OUT it's 8 week run in our Black Box space (seating cap 250). We had to add 5 additional performances that SOLD OUT within a week. The show is charming, heartwarming and very funny! It was a great experience for our Resident Company and our subscription patrons.

Zany comedy that's ideal for community theatres on a limited budget. Varied age ranges in a cast of 14 from teens to 70s. A couple a great "character" parts for two men with comic timing.

Steve Franco has accomplished what few writers in the comedy genre can. He has produced a show which will have your audiences rolling with laughter, without resorting to profanity and sexual innuendo. This is a show for all ages, young and old alike. You'll see yourself or a member of your family in this show, which is part of what makes it great! Nice job Steve! I'm waiting to see more of your works in the future!
