Zoë Yeoman recounts colorful tales of the ensuing dating debacles in Bad Dates.

Bad Dates has been seen in theaters from Off-Broadway’s Playwrights Horizons to Seattle Rep to the Huntington in Boston. Although you may not recognize her name, you’ve probably seen Rebeck’s smart, savvy work on television in "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," "N.Y.P.D. Blue" and "LA Law." Rebeck’s plays include Spike Heels and Omnium Gatherum - written with Alexandra Gersten-Vassilaros - which was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.

The Main Stage Season brings you three more plays focusing on the lighter side of life, while the Splinter Series features three shows that present more thought provoking material.

The Main Stage will feature: The Lion in Winter – James Goldman’s classic play about lying, backstabbing and rampant double-crossing as King Henry II, his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine and their three sons spend a family Christmas together; Talley’s Folly – a romance about the sheer force of love that won both the Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award and, in the final spot of the season, a musical to be announced. The Splinter Series shows are Bad Dates, The Last Five Years – a clever musical that chronicles the marriage between a writer and an actress -- and Wit or The Exonerated.
