On the Main StageRumors runs from February 23 – March 31 (13 shows with 2 matinees on March 11 and 28. No show on Good Friday, March 30).
 
Rumors is a madcap farce by world-famous playwright Neil Simon. Set in a large home just outside of New York City in May 1988, the characters are arriving as guests at the 10th Anniversary dinner of Deputy Mayor Charley Brock and his wife Myra. The first couple to arrive discover that Charley has apparently attempted suicide...unsuccessfully. Myra is nowhere to be found and neither are the servants. As more guests arrive, there are cover-ups, deceptions, mistaken identities, and a lot of huge laughs.
