This Season the Pennsylvania Playhouse has solicited directors for their picks of what they would like to see on our stage for the 2013 Season.  The understanding was that if their show was chosen they would direct it.  We have had an outpouring of submissions and when the dust settled, so to speak, we present the following Director's Cut Season for your enjoyment!
