Bradley Greenwald, Prudence Johnson, Diana Grasselli, and Dan Chouinard of Chronofon Productions present their meditation on Leonard Bernstein's commitment to music, love, and the artist as progressive social activist. Bernstein's masterpieces from Broadway, the concert hall, and the silver screen—together with his fascinating and candid correspondence with Aaron Copland, Steven Sondheim, Jerome Robbins, Thornton Wilder, Bette Davis, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and more—will be presented in a theatrical concert that, as Bernstein would put it, "appeals to both the intellect and the heart."

Celebrate Leonard Bernstein's 100th birthday with the artists of Chronofon! Join us for a special Birthday Soirée event on August 25, featuring pre-show cocktails, performance of DEAR LENNY, followed by an Afterglow Party and sing-along with the cast!

Is there anything more fulfilling than finally getting your house truly, deeply clean? We may never know because The Clean House is a side-splitting comedy about a cleaning lady who’d rather perfect her stand-up routine than clean the house. As she spends her days not cleaning, she befriends her boss’s sister—who lives only to clean. Toss in a love triangle and some sibling rivalries and you get a whimsical and moving portrait of humanity, reminding us that the messes and disappointments of life can be the most unexpectedly fulfilling times of all.
