About PROOF:
Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a math professor at The University of Chicago. Following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father’s, who hopes to find valuable work in the notebooks he left behind. In the ensuing struggles, a mysterious notebook surfaces to draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: How much of her father’s madness – or genius – will she inherit?

Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play, PROOF is a compelling drama with elements of mystery, romance, and old-fashioned storytelling. It was made into a major motion picture in 2005 starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Anthony Hopkins, and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Directed by Brian Sharp

Winner of two Tony Awards, three Drama Desk Awards and a Theatre World Award, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas is a barrel of laughs featuring memorable songs and tap-dancing cowboys. It is the late 1970s, and a brothel run by Miss Mona Stangley who happens to be on good terms with local sheriff Ed Earl Dodd, has been operating outside of fictional Gilbert, Texas for more than a century. When crusading television reporter, Melvin P. Thorpe, decides to make the illegal activity an issue, political ramifications cause the place to be closed. This glorious salute to Texas is a barrel of laughs!
