Overview – SOLD OUT
Broadway’s Longest Running Comedic Thriller
World-famous thriller playwright Sidney Bruhl is suffering from a chronic case of writer’s block. When one of his former students shows up at his doorstep with what might be the next Broadway hit, Sidney and his wife concoct a deadly plan to make the manuscript their own. Holding the record for the longest running comedic thriller on Broadway, Deathtrap is filled with twists and turns in a series of shocking events that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last moment!

Director (Constellation’s Artistic Director of New Works)
In addition to producing new works, Chad has directed more than 100 productions across the country, focusing primarily on new and contemporary plays and musicals. He has managed multiple new works companies and created the acclaimed Adirondack Film Festival. While Producing Artistic Director of the Bloomington Playwrights Project (2009-2022), BPP underwent what Bloom Magazine called “a near miraculous renaissance.” Taking the helm of a theatre nearing six-figures in debt, Rabinovitz quintupled its subscribership, erased all debt, vastly expanded its education program, completed a full-building renovation (and purchased the building), doubled the operating budget, and sold out every single performance of every production for 5 straight years.
For his achievements, Rabinovitz was the recipient of Bloomington’s Manager of the Year Award, the Downtown Revitalization Award, Bloomington’s Attraction of the Year Award, Ivy Tech’s Community Partner Award, and was honored with being on the cover of Bloom Magazine where he’s referred to as “a visionary artistic director, savvy businessman, and inspirational leader.” He was named one of the 100 Reasons to Love Bloomington and was honored with Bloomington’s 10 Under 40 award as well as Glens Falls’ 20 Under 40 award in the same month. Chad is a candy lover, owner of The Candy Space (www.thecandyspace.com), and proud graduate of Advanced Adult Space Camp.
