Veteran social worker thinks she has typical case on her hands when she meets two teenage drug addicts accused of neglecting their baby.

Buyer and Cellar
Oct. 13-Nov. 1
What's a renowned diva to do with decades of memories that light corners of her mind? And where to put memorabilia bursting seams of her lavish Malibu estate? If you're Barbra Streisand, you enshrine them in a mini-mall in your basement where you can pretend to go shopping.

The Skivvies
Oct. 22-Oct. 24
Award-winning duo perform stripped down arrangements of eclectic covers and eccentric originals. Not only is music stripped down (cello, ukulele, glockenspiel, melodica) but they also literally strip down to underwear to perform.

Dec. 2-Jan. 3
Fresh, fun contemporary take on classic fairy tale that demonstrates being smart is true beauty.

Jan. 26-Feb. 14
Unexpected pregnancy ends ace fighter pilot's career in sky. Reassigned to operate remote-controlled military drones in Middle East from windowless trailer outside Las Vegas, she hunts terrorists by day and returns to her family each night.

March 22-April 10
20 years ago Emma walked out on husband. Hearing he's in dire straits, she tracks him down in the wilds of low-rent Colorado trailer park. Their reunion, charged by rage and compassion, frames story that rides fine line of tragedy and comedy, laughter and loss.

May 3-May 22
Score of show-stopping anthems ranging from American-roots to folk to gospel, play tells story of young woman's quest for beauty amidst image-obsessed landscape of 1960s.
