Lyle the Crocodile

Based on Lyle, Lyle Crocodile and The House on East 88th Street by Bernard Waber,
adapted for the stage by Kevin Kling, Music by Richard Gray

Lyle is the story of a friendly crocodile who turns up in a bathtub in an apartment in New York City's Upper East Side. Lyle becomes good friends with the folks in the
building, except for Mr. Grumps, who hates Lyle, parades, people, and pretty much everything. However, when Lyle rescues Mr. Grumps and his cat Loretta from a
fire, Mr. Grumps has to apologize for the way he's treated Lyle. In the end, Lyle helps those around him learn that they should not judge other by how different
they appear to be, but to love people (and crocodiles) for what they are.

Spamalot

By Eric Idle and John Du Prez

SPAMALOT is a musical comedy "lovingly ripped off" from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Penned by original Monty Python member, Eric Idle, Spamalot is a cheeky parody of King Arthur's legend. Complete with Knights who say "Ni", killer rabbits and carts to collect the dead, the play pays homage to its cinematic roots, but it also offers a plethora of brand new favorite moments and hilarious original music. The original 2005 Broadway production was nominated for 14 Tony Awards, winning three—including the Tony Award for Best Musical.
