With just 30 days between idea and execution, Off the Quill brings you Completely Hollywood, a tribute to all things Cinema. The frenetic comedy from the team that brought you the award winning Complete Works of Shakespeare (abridged) [revised] has the actors tackling 186 films, plus a screen mashup of their own, in just 90 minutes.

Off the Quill was founded by four like-minded friends (Patrick Mullen, Katie Wanschura, Leanne Dinverno, and J. Peter Langsdorf) who wanted to create a different kind of theater experience. One that blends many different mediums, like stage combat, dance, clowning, physicality, to present truly compelling stories to the audience. We aim to take classic and modern stories and make them our own, either by writing new material or presenting them in innovative ways.

Tickets: $20 General Admission, $17 Student, Senior or Veteran. Click here.

When do the ends no longer justify the means? This is just one of the questions raised in Academy-Award winner Aaron Sorkin’s hit Broadway debut. A Few Good Men follows the court martial of two Marines in the summer of 1986, put on trial for the suspicious death of PFC William Santiago. Assigned to the case is Lt. Daniel Kaffee, a young JAG with a penchant for plea bargaining. Under pressure from Lt. Cmdr. Jo Galloway, Kaffee and the Defense find themselves uncovering a conspiracy, confronting the morality of war, and indicting the Marine Corps Code of Honor.
