A message from our Executive Artistic Director, Virginia Wall Gruenert

off the WALL and Carnegie Stage are thrilled about
the return to live theater in 2021

We’re actively taking steps towards insuring
that any live presentations follow safety mandates
and restrictions deemed necessary
by Gov. Wolf and the medical experts.

We view you not just as spectators –
you are collaborators, you are essential,
and we miss you

We’re delighted to say the ever-popular THE CAROLS will return as our featured holiday show. If you didn’t see THIS the first time, see it. If you have seen it, see it again. It’s that good.

From all of us to all of you – please continue to stay safe until we all meet again in December!

The Carols  A Musical

The Carols

Book and lyrics by Jennifer Child
Music by Monica Stephenson

Directed by Erika Cuenca 

It's Christmastime in 1944. War is raging and, here at home, a group of neighbors gathers at the VFW to make the most of what they have.  


This new original musical comedy, first staged in 2017, is back by popular demand and tells the story of an oddball friendship between a trio of singing sisters, an out-of-work Catskills comic, a limping piano player, and their grumpy Scrooge-like landlady. The Carols is a heartfelt, laugh-out-loud and hopeful musical that looks at making something right with all the wrong people. 

"This twist on all the holiday stories you have already heard is terrifically fresh and entertaining."

4.48  Psychosis  
"4.48 Psychosis
is Shakespeare for the downtrodden. A true masterpiece of powerfully physical theater, poignant emotions, and incendiary wordsmithing that transcends into a uniformed array of violent pleasures for the audience to ingest.
