In this hilarious satire of musical theatre, one story becomes five delightful mini-musicals, each written in the distinctive style of a different master of the form. The basic plot: June is an ingenue who can't pay the rent and is threatened by her evil landlord. Will the handsome leading man come to the rescue? The variations are: a Rodgers & Hammerstein version, set in Kansas in August, complete with a dream ballet; a Stephen Sondheim version, featuring the landlord as a tortured artistic genius who slashes the throats of his tenants in revenge for not appreciating his work; a Jerry Herman version, as a splashy star vehicle; an Andrew Lloyd Webber version, a rock musical with themes borrowed from Puccini; and a Kander & Ebb version, set in a speakeasy in Chicago.

After years of traveling abroad, Avery Sutton is happy to return with his fiancée to the comfort of his home in Connecticut. Unfortunately, almost nothing is as he has remembered it. The entire house is tilted at a distinct angle, the dog hasn't been fed in five years, and Avery's Grandmother, who everyone thought was dead, is still alive and kicking. Forced to either accept the oddities of his family, or leave them behind, 37 Postcards suggests that you can, in fact, go home again... You just never know what you're going to find.

Two recently retired couples go through the ups and down of being together 24/7 in their "golden years."  The two men fill the void left by retirement in different ways; Marty decides he wants to explore the open road on a Harley while Fred decides to pay more attention to his health, inventing many new ailments along the way. With a little "subtle redirection" from their wives and a creative solution to a very unusual problem (which may or may not include a homemade coffin) they find the right track... eventually. There's definitely something funny about retirement!
