The Abduction at The Apollo



January 23, 24, 25, 30, 31 & February 1, 2015

What begins as a pleasant anniversary dinner for novelist Allen Grant, his wife Sheila and her daughter Cindy ends in terror when Cindy is forced off the road and abducted while driving back to college during a thunderstorm. Cindy and the icily determined kidnapper both speak with Allen and Sheila during the abduction via cell phones, the horrifying voice of the abductor coming through their speaker phone eerily distorted by a synthesizer. Tension mounts as Allen tries to raise the demanded ransom by the kidnapper's deadline. Cindy's boyfriend searches for clues to her whereabouts and Shelia, who never fully recovered from the tragic accident that killed her first husband, Cindy's father, totters on the brink of a nervous breakdown. Unrelenting phone calls and a horrifying "souvenir" from the abductor push this thriller to a shattering climax.

Harvey at The Apollo



March 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, & 15, 2015

When Elwood P. Dowd starts to introduce his imaginary friend, Harvey, a six-and-a-half-foot rabbit, to guests at a society party, his sister, Veta, has seen as much of his eccentric behavior as she can tolerate. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare her daughter, Myrtle Mae, and their family from future embarrassment. Problems arise, however, when Veta herself is mistakenly assumed to be on the verge of lunacy when she explains to doctors that years of living with Elwood's hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also! The doctors commit Veta instead of Elwood, but when the truth comes out, the search is on for Elwood and his invisible companion. When he shows up at the sanitarium looking for his lost friend Harvey, it seems that the mild-mannered Elwood's delusion has had a strange influence on more than one of the doctors. Only at the end does Veta realize that maybe Harvey isn't so bad after all.

The Andersonville Trial at The Apollo



April 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, & 26, 2015

As told by Chapman from the NY Daily News: "Wirz, a Swiss immigrant and a doctor, had enlisted in the rebel army, had been severely wounded and, a semi-invalid, had been put in command of this military prison. It was merely a stockade with no shelter from winter or summer, and its food consisted of rough corn bread. In summer, Wirz testified at his trial, a hundred men died there each day…Torn by awful memories and coldly pursued by his prosecutor he [Wirz] maintains that he ran Andersonville as a soldier acting under superior orders." The crux of this stirring play raises the question of when the responsibility of the individual to his conscience transcends any power or authority.
