FD at THE ROSE sends out a big wave of gratitude to the multitude of audience members, friends and supporters who made our ninth season the biggest, bravest and most bankable one yet.


We're kicking it off with a tale of FRANKENSTEIN, that deliciously man-made monster not even a mother/mad scientist could love... but at least it comes with a heart of gold.  Or does it? This inventive, imaginative re-telling of Mary Shelley's novel from the pen (dare we say quill?) of David Emerson Toney will haunt you right through Halloween. Just in time for a Winter's thought provoking story from audience fav Richard C. Washer and a wickedly funny take on Jewish mothers and daughters from playwright Jennie Berman Eng.  We're finishing the season with our very own Chris Stezin, and you know that can't be bad. Did we mention IT'S ALL FREE? Want us to save you a seat?  Hit this!‚Äč
