“Empires have actually fallen because a letter didn’t arrive.”
Captain Video’s quest to establish a reliable interstellar mail system is interrupted by the villainous James C. Everett. Will our hero be able to ensure everything is delivered on time? Will he be able to stop Everett from doing something dastardly? Why aren’t you buying more Raisin Bran cereal?
The Dumont Theatre Network mounts an inadvisedly faithful stage adaptation of the fifth episode of sci-fi television darling Captain Video — same cheesy script, same shoestring-budget — Friday and Saturday, Aug. 3-4 in the Dean James E. Dull Black Box. All tickets $5.

After suffering a major loss while he was on a cross-country bike trip, 21 year-old Leo seeks solace from his feisty 91 year-old grandmother Vera in her West Village apartment. Over the course of a single month, these unlikely roommates infuriate, bewilder, and ultimately reach each other. 4000 MILES looks at how two outsiders find their way in today’s world.
by William Shakespeare –
On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule. While a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war, their paths are crossed by Bottom, Quince and their friends presenting a play within a play. Chief mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare’s most beguiling comedy.
A Devised Theatre Piece created by the students of Georgia Tech –
Today’s world is filled with danger. In the age of divisiveness, we are looking for moments of safety. Using cards collected as part of the Georgia Tech Office of the Arts’ I Feel Safe When campaign, students will use personal story and collected narrative about safety to explore all the way in which we want and need to feel at home in our bodies.
In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the CABARET. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, CABARET explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken by English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish.

Tobey was alive. Was. Now he’s something else. Now there’s a Postman from another dimension in his bedroom. Now two old friends have returned from the past and they have thumbs. Why are they here? How do they know so much about Tobey? What the hell is spaghetti pie? These questions and more in this mysterious play about life, death, and what it means to be a fish.

Today is the two-year anniversary of Fiona’s son’s disappearance, and still, nothing makes sense to her. Not her blasé husband, the incompetent detective, or the neighborhood kidnapper who keeps introducing himself in the checkout line. As Fiona delves back into her memories of that fateful day, to uncover that crucial missing piece, grief and comedy collide, and ordinary turns of phrase take on dangerous new meanings.
