The House Of Blue Leaves

A Very Dark Comedy

By John Guare

April 28,29,30 – May 5,6,7 12,13,14, 2017
8:00 p.m. Friday & Saturday, April 28,29 May 5,6 & 12,13
2:00 p.m. Sunday matinees, April 30, May 7, 14

The House of Blue Leaves is set in Sunnyside, Queens in 1965, on the day Pope Paul VI visited New York City. The black comedy focuses on Artie Shaughnessy, a zookeeper who dreams of making it big in Hollywood as a songwriter. Artie wants to take his girlfriend, Bunny with him to Hollywood. His wife Bananas is a schizophrenic destined for the institution that provides the play's title. Their son Ronnie is a GI headed for Vietnam who has gone AWOL. Three nuns are eager to see the pope and end up in Artie's apartment. A political bombing mistakenly occurs in the apartment. It is very, very funny, heartbreaking, and oh so human.

FYI, some FB reviews that we are proud of:

"Amazing little venue with actors who take their craft seriously. Each show seems to get even better than the last. The Chalk Garden inspired me to write this 5* review but I haven't seen a bad show here. They recently upgraded their seating so now it is incredibly comfortable (before, it was no cushions on church pews)"
Jen Freed

"Best little theater with such big talent and shows! Was lucky enough to perform in a few plays there (back in the day!) including Death of a Salesman and The Glass Menagerie. Fond memories. A few years back saw A Chorus Line and, as always, was just so impressed with the talent."
Patricia Kurtz Forger

"Love going to shows at the Sherman Playhouse. Always a great show and not a bad seat in the house."
Keith Barto

"Really wish I lived next to this wonderful theatre ... Has all the perks of a true theatrical venue ... It is the real deal!!"
Dean Mastrantoni

"I went there to see the Rocky Horror Picture Show & was absolutely blown away by their performance. It was utterly amazing! If seeing the Rocky Horror Picture Show is on your bucket list for October, get your behind over to the Sherman Playhouse and see this show! Am planning on going to see it again!"
Samantha Roche

"Such a joy and wonderful atmosphere! Will be returning for many shows to come."
