M*A*S*H stands for Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, and joining it are two unpredictable madcaps, Hawkeye and Duke. They can't be dealt with casually, however, because they are also two of the best chest surgeons in South Korea. They decide to wage a campaign to get a young Korean to the United States and entered in a good school.
The thread of this effort helps tie together the pileup of comic adventures that pyramid right before your eyes leading to hysterical fun!
Hawkeye has a scene with a woman psychiatrist who believes he's been trying to lobster-trap mermaids in a rice paddy! There's a jolly encounter with the baby-talking Bonwit sisters, the worst tap-dancing act the U.S.O. ever sent overseas. A sergeant is selling dumb GIs fishing rights in the Bay of Phum. Radar O'Reilly, a soldier with incredible hearing, anticipates things before they happen. The proprietor of a painless dental clinic is cured of dark moods by the recreation of an old monster movie, and a monster!
It's all here, including a little romance mixed in with dramatic moments and a genuine love of life. Oh, yes, the Korean boy does get his education in the United States!
I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change

This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum know as 'the relationship.'
The first of two musicals this year, I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE, explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage; and reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set.
We simply couldn't resist bringing you the Longest Running Musical in Off-Broadway History. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask...
'Say, what are you doing Saturday night?'

Bialystock and Bloom! We close our season by bringing those two familiar names from Mel Brooks' classic cult comedy film to the Capitol stage. Our second musical of the season, THE PRODUCERS set the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor on Broadway, winning a record twelve Tony Awards and wowing crowds night after night.
Follow the antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they scheme to produce the most notorious flop in Broadway history! At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends.
