The sexiest, funniest, most acclaimed new Broadway play!
David Ives' new provocative comedy is sure to leave you breathless! Demanding playwright-director Thomas is searching for the perfect actress to bring his new vision to life. Enter Vanda. Very late and seemingly clueless, she convinces Thomas to give her a shot to audition for him. What follows is an intelligent and hilarious show that explores the lines between fantasy and reality, seduction and power, love and sex and lust. This one is definitely not to be missed.

Dreams really can come true.
Set among the glitz and glamour of 1940's Hollywood, this lush new award-winning drama goes inside the movie studio and inside the lives of two brothers. One is the creative genius responsible for bringing the first animated feature film to the screen and the other is his loyal brother, who struggles to keep the money coming in to fund the next big dream, a feature length animated film set to classical music that will ultimately change the film industry forever. With deft wit and endearing humanity, Something Intangible explores the ties that bind, artistic inspiration, and that intangible something that can elevate the mundane to the sublime.

Tom is a Virginia Senator and a rising star in the Republican Party. He's asked to join the ticket as the Vice-Presidential candidate. The only catch: he needs to sound "more Christian" on the campaign trail. Will he sacrifice his firmly held belief that faith and religion are private matters or give up an opportunity to govern the most influential country in the world? Privacy, politics, and public personas take center stage in this World Premiere Drama by a hot new American playwright.

New Works Festival
Performances August 16 at 8 p.m.; August 17th 3 & 8 p.m.
Gulfshore Playhouse's First Annual New Works Festival is an exciting new addition to the programming The Playhouse is offering its audiences. Bringing together three playwrights and a team of actors and directors, this week long festival will offer a place for the playwrights to hone their plays and then present their work to an audience.
One of the most important steps for a playwright in the creation of a new play is the transition from writing in a solitary environment, to adding actors, and ultimately an audience to see how the play works in performance. Gulfshore Playhouse's audiences now have the pleasure of stepping into that incredibly magic space where a play is taking flight for the first time.
Throughout the week, these three selected playwrights will carefully craft their works with actor and director input, culminating in a weekend of three staged readings. Gulfshore Playhouse is thrilled to take our place in the development of new work in the American theatre, and even more thrilled to offer our audiences access at an incredibly affordable price.
Tickets: 1 for $15; 2 for $25; 3 for $35
