The outrageously prodigious comic and musical soul of 1930’s Harlem lives on in this rollicking, swinging, finger-snapping revue that is still considered one of Broadway's best.The inimitable Thomas "Fats" Waller rose to international fame during the Golden Age of the Cotton Club, honky tonk dives along Lenox Avenue, rent parties, stride piano players and that jumpin' new beat, Swing. Although not quite a biography, "Ain't Misbehavin'" evokes the delightful humor and infectious energy of this American original as a versatile cast struts, strums and sings the songs he made famous in a career that ranged from uptown clubs to downtown Tin Pan Alley to Hollywood and concert stages in the U.S., Canada and Europe.

Seven Soldiers ranging in ages from 15 to 60 and one woman, a Nurse, share a hospital ward in Richmond, Virginia even as the cannon balls fall around them during the last days of the Civil War. While each character has lost something different to the war - an arm, a leg, a voice, faith, a son
- they have all lost their courage.

Quotidian is pleased to present the U.S. premiere of Conor McPherson's The Veil, which debuted in 2011 at London’s National Theatre. Set in a haunted mansion in rural Ireland in 1822, surrounded by a restive, starving populace, The Veil weaves Ireland’s troubled colonial history into a transfixing story about the search for love, the transcendental, and the circularity of time.
"An atmospheric and haunting tale of lost souls." - Evening Standard
"Imagine a Chekhov play full of ghosts and things that go bump in the night and you will get some idea of Conor McPherson's strange and fitfully entertaining drama The Veil." – The Telegraph
