Barksdale Theatre at Willow Lawn
                  Intimate Apparel
                  April 13- May 20, 2007
                  Esther, a 35-year old single black seamstress in ragtime era New York, stitches together a
                  life making exquisite lingerie for wealthy socialites uptown and women of ill-repute
                  downtown. Though independent, Esther still struggles with loneliness and wishes for the
                  kind of fulfillment she cannot find behind a sewing machine. When correspondence
                  begins with a man from across the world, her hopes for finding companionship and love
                  take an unexpected turn. Her talent weaves a collection of close relationships bound by
                  romance and disappointment as Esther learns that a woman’s happiness depends on her
                  own emotional strength and self-confidence.

                  Into the Woods
                  June 15- August 19, 2007
                  Are you certain what you wish is what you want? Sondheim’s brilliant music—together
                  with bakers, witches, and vain handsome princes straight out of the Brothers Grimm—
                  vividly illustrates the potential for treachery in our innermost wishes. An ambivalent
                  Cinderella? A bloodthirsty Little Red Riding Hood? A Prince Charming with a roving
                  eye? A Witch...who raps? They're all there. When a Baker and his Wife learn they've
                  been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the
                  special objects required to break the spell, swindling, lying to and stealing from
                  Cinderella, Little Red, Rapunzel and Jack. Everyone's wish is granted at the end of Act
                  One, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them.
Barksdale Theatre at Hanover Tavern
                                        Smoke on the Mountain
                                        February 23- April 15, 2007
                                        Set in the 1930s, this good time bluegrass gospel musical introduces the
                                        singing Sanders family, who perform their traditional and original gospel
                                        songs for the members of the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Mount
                                        Pleasant, NC. Pastor Oglethorpe welcomes the family to the church, where
                                        their individual stories and beliefs are shared during the concert. With the
audience serving as the "congregation," Smoke on the Mountain lovingly recreates a delightful and musically
unforgettable slice of Americana.

                                 The Odd Couple
                                  June 29- August 12, 2007
                                  The most hilariously mismatched roommates in the history of Broadway comedy
                                  are back at Hanover Tavern in this brand new production of one of America's
                                  favorite comedies. Last produced by Barksdale in 1973, Neil Simon's irresistibly
                                  funny play tells the story of two friends (one divorced, the other recently
                                  separated) who decide to share an apartment … with sidesplitting results. Don't
miss the sheer pleasure of rediscovering all over again the reasons we all first fell in love with The Odd Couple.

                               September 14- October 21, 2007
                               Sidney Bruhl is a middle-aged playwright famous for his oh-so-clever whodunits,
                               but he hasn't had a hit in twenty years. When one of his former students sends him
                               the only draft of a new murder mystery, Sidney devises a plan to ensure his own
                               fortune. Will Sidney's scheme lead him back to Broadway? Will the student be the
                               victim of malicious jealousy? Will Sidney's wife be able to withstand the horror in
                               her household? Will the eccentric psychic who is visiting Sidney's neighbors unearth
the nastiness next door? Only one answer is certain: missing this classic Broadway thriller would be a deadly

                                      The '40s burst onto the scene in this sentimental journey with a sassy attitude.
                                      This eagerly awaited Off-Broadway hit, featuring over 30 hits from the big
                                      band era, is not only nostalgic to those who lived through them but will
                                      resonate through any Baby Boomer or Generation X-er who hungers for a
                                      taste of our nation's last age of innocence.

                                 Gabriella Montez is a shy, studious new student at East High School; but that all

                                 captain of the school's basketball team. After spending time with each other, both
                                 realize they share a passionate love for music and singing. But will they retain this
                                 love when their school is telling them they cannot be together?
