About House of Blue Leaves
Set in Sunnyside Queens in 1965, this dark comedy by John Guare features Artie Shaughnessy, a zookeeper desperate to escape his lower middle-class life and become a famous songwriter. His schizophrenic wife, Bananas, tells him straight out his songs are awful while his mistress, Bunny Flingus encourages his quest for fame. When the Pope Paul plans a visit to New York City, Artie thinks it’s time for his life to get blessed as well. But before he can reach out to his old school buddy Billy Einhorn, a famous film director in Los Angeles, for a job writing music for the movies, Artie's son, Ronnie, goes AWOL from the army and hatches a plot to blow up the Pope at Yankee Stadium. When the bomb explodes prematurely, chaos reigns in a mix of laughter, drama and social commentary.

Tickets are $8 in advance at the college bookstore, online at (Buy Tickets Now), or at the door an hour prior to the performance.
