From Trey Parker and Matt Stone, four-time Emmy Award-winning creators of South Park comes this outrageously funny and risque Broadway musical about a pair of mismatched Mormon boys sent on a mission to a place that's about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get. Starring BOM veteran Gavin Creel as Elder Price, fresh from his London stint in the same role, be prepared for a show where no holds are barred and perhaps cover yourself with a napkin as you'll be spluttering in comic awesomeness throughout.

Avenue Q is a provocative and subversive coming of age tale told with puppets. Think Book of Mormon meets Sesame Street.

No one in the news is safe! Not to be confused with the Disney musical NEWSIES, this Drama Desk-nominated revue NEWSical is back lampooning current events, newsmakers, celebreties, and politicians - in short, everyone is fair game. With songs and material continually updated to take advantage of the top news stories, composer-lyricist Drama Desk Nominee Rick Crom's topical musical comedy is an ever-evolving mockery of all the news that is fit to spoof - and then some.

Opening this June for an open run, this newest brainchild from Forbidden Broadway creator Gerard Alessandrini is expected to make waves wherever they visit. And Alessandrini has promised to keep it fresh and up-to-date, with topical references to its namesake around the corner! More info

A new political satire is on the horizon at Paper Mill Playhouse, as part of its enviable 2017/18 season lineup. A timely and potentially pointed comedy that takes aim at useless politicians (ahem), ​Paul Slade Smith follows up from his incisive 2006 comedy Unnecessary Farce with this new work that is expected to raise blood pressure in the West Wing when it premieres in early 2018. A celebration of democracy and a brazen shot across the bows of useless politicians, this is the comedy to see. More info

Following in the footsteps of hit comedy-edutainment shows like Assume the Position with Mr. Wuhl and Colin Quinn's Long Story Short, The Imbible sweeps audiences along a 10,000-year journey through history and across the globe accompanied by craft cocktails and the vocal stylings of The Backwaiters acapella group!

Written by comedian Lisa Lampanelli, Stuffed is honest look at women's relation to food and body image.

Together they tackle every food-related topic imaginable, from ridiculous diets to muffin tops. More info

One actor has at least five shorts of whiskey and attempts to perform a Shakespearean play in a hilarious and totally unpredictable evening! More info

The main character is a Harvard-educated psychiatrist accused of bumping off her wealthy British husband. But when a handsome young detective comes calling to investigate, is everything as straight-cut as it appears? More info
