The Prisoner of Second Avenue
June 23 - July 16

Mel Edison (Tony Braithwaite) can't sleep. A well paid executive, his firm suddenly hits rock bottom and he's let go. In the heat of a New York City summer, his air conditioner is broken, the neighbors won't shut up and there is a band of burglars on the prowl. Mel experiences a meltdown and it's the best thing that ever happened to him, but his loyal wife Edna (Mary Carpenter) is the one who has to gather all the broken pieces.
Prisoner opened on Broadway in 1971 and was nominated for the coveted Tony Award for Best Play.
