(Previews April 12 – April 20)

Run Time:  90 Minutes

Come for the greatest orator of early America arguing contract law with Satan, stay for the riotous musical farce with a plot too ridiculous to summarize.  Although the story of  The Devil and Daniel Webster is well-known, few people have actually seen it onstage, because not many theatres do one-acts anymore.  We’re here to remedy this, as it is one of the great American plays.  The nineteen actors in it will then turn around after intermission and perform Trial by Jury, the equally great but completely different thirty-minute operetta that launched Gilbert and Sullivan’s career as the English stage’s finest satirists.
