Heeere’s Tony!

Watch Now!

There are talk shows at night and even late at night. There are talk shows from New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. But, there is only one talk show captured live at the Playhouse with friends and neighbors. Who knows? Maybe you’ll discover a new star! 

Tony’s featured guests, Rob McClure and Gianna Yanelli, spill the beans on behind-the-scenes antics at Broadway shows, very special guest, the Honorable Mayor Jeanne Sorg stops by to chat about all things local and the show is rounded out by sidekick Howie Brown with musical accompaniment by Sonny Leo. 

Comedy Tonight!

Watch Now!
Starring Tony Braithwaite, Joe Mallon, Dan Matarazzo, and Gianna Yanelli

It’s time to pull up your chairs for a comedy cabaret – there’s something for everyone! From Tony Braithwaite, “The show is inspired by the best traditions of British sketch comedy, legendary duos, song parodies including the famous Tom Lehrer rapid-fire tune, “The Elements” and Stanley Holloway’s iconic poem, “The Lion and Albert.” Of course, we couldn’t resist paying homage to classic American musicals and we imagine the future for a pandemic-inspired musical. We think audiences deserve a good laugh this spring!” 

Created by Tony Braithwaite and the musical comedy A-team of Joe Mallon (Greater Tuna), Dan Matarazzo (Electile Dysfunction: Hindsight is 2020), and Gianna Yanelli (Mean Girls, original Broadway cast) to bring on the frenetic and the fun.

Didn’t Your Father Have This Talk With You?

Watch Now!
Written by Tony Braithwaite
Directed by Mary Carpenter
Starring Tony Braithwaite

A young teacher arrives in front of high school freshmen boys for a combined class – Religion and Sex Ed! Drawing from his own experience, master  storyteller Tony Braithwaite shares a view into the real lives of the teens and their hilarious observations, unfiltered questions, and heartfelt personal stories.

Returning from the West Coast acting scene, “Mr. Braithwaite” arrives at his high school alma mater – a Jesuit school for boys. In his inimitable style of storytelling, he shares his 12 years’ of memories as a teacher learning alongside the honest and awkward young men who are finding their way in both the classroom and the world outside.

‘Didn’t Your Father’ was filmed before a live audience at the Playhouse during a sold-out extended run several seasons ago.

“This show is hilarious, and it is brilliant, but most of all it is a show that should not be missed.” – Broadway World
