    An Endearing Comedy About Love, Loss & Healing

    September 15 - October 3, 2021

    Summary:  A World Premiere three years in the making. After an extended pause from the COVID-19 pandemic, THE PEOPLE DOWNSTAIRS by St Pete playwright Natalie Symons, who developed this play at American Stage, finally gets its world premiere. 21st Century Voices: New Play Festival – Mainstage Selection In Buffalo, NY, aging funeral home custodian Miles lives with his middle-aged daughter Mabel, who spends her days writing letters to prison inmates. When a court-appointed guardian threatens to take away their home, Miles sets out to set Mabel up with Todd, an inept mortician. It is a father’s fierce determination not to accept his daughter’s fate that ignites an endearing human comedy about love, loss, loneliness and the healing power of laughter. “We are over the moon to be bringing back this tremendous show and giving it the true World Premiere that it deserves,” said Associate Artistic Director Kristin Clippard. “The set of THE PEOPLE DOWNSTAIRS has stood like a ghost in our theater for 16 months, and the lights will finally shine on this delightful story. It’s the perfect comedy, centering on an isolated father and daughter, to warm your heart and make you laugh out loud – With other people!” Run Time: Approximately 2 hours with one intermission Age Recommendation: 12+.   TIMES & PRICES

    The Odd Couple

    For the Love of A Classic

    October 27 - November 21, 2021

    Summary:  The brilliant Neil Simon once said, “Never underestimate the stimulation of eccentricity.” Oscar is a slob. Felix is neat. Oscar loves his bachelorhood, and Felix is newly divorced. When the two decide to live together in the same apartment, how will they reconcile their differences? This Neil Simon comedy explores the relationship between two men who, despite their many differences, must find a way to live together.

    Jacob Marley's A Christmas Carol FOR THE LOVE OF GRATITUDE AND REDEMPTION

    December 8 - January 2, 2022

    Summary:  Charles Dickens wrote a short story that has become one of the most adapted pieces of literature in history. The story of Scrooge is well known, but what about Marley? How did his haunting afterlife begin? In his version of the carol, Marley is escorted by a spritely creature along the pathway to redeeming his soul – by helping to save the one man on earth who was more greedy and sour than himself. We come to find that self sacrifice can make a difference in the end. TIMES & PRICES

    School Girls; Or, The African American Mean Girls Play

    FOR THE LOVE OF LAUGHTER AND GROWING PAINS

    February 2 - February 27, 2022

    Summary:  Picture it. 1986. An all girls school in Ghana and there’s a new girl in town, an American, who challenges the reigning queen bee. There’s a prestigious pageant on the line, which could provide the opportunity to move up in the world to the lucky winner.  This is a funny and touching story about the universal teenage struggle, and the need to feel like you belong. The Hollywood Reporter said it was “ferociously entertaining, as heartwarming as it is hilarious” and the Washington Post called it a “charming comedy of adolescent angst.” TIMES & PRICES

    Dutchman FOR THE LOVE OF IDENTITY

    June 29 - July 31, 2022

    Summary:  The prolific Amiri Baraka once said, “There is no depth to education without art.” America experienced a racial awakening in 2020 as the Black Lives Matter movement forced the country to examine its complex relationship with race. Although “Dutchman” premiered almost 60 years ago during the height of the Civil Rights movement, this Obie Award winning masterpiece is a timeless play about race and identity in America focused on the political and psychological struggle between African Americans and White Americans… a story that is more timely now than ever before. Set in New York City, this provocative story challenges us to think about the part we all play in America’s problems with race. The New York Times said, “‘Dutchman’ endures because it resists simple allegory,” and The New Yorker said, “[Dutchman] remains as seditious today as it [ever] was.” American Stage is proud to present a contemporary, fresh interpretation of this soul-stirring American classic.
