Stuck in the suburban jungle, a dirt-eating mama's boy digs up the truth about what lies beneath his high school's softball field. Together with a motley team of friends, enemies, and frenemies, he takes a stand to stop the town from turning the field into a parking lot and, along the way, comes face to face with love and death. An oddball coming-of-age story, Artemis in the Parking Lot is an ode to adolescent wisdom, the persistence of buried histories, and, of course, unabashed 90s nostalgia.
Dana Jacobson, a fortyish, single New Yorker, leaves her colorful family of origin and moves to Los Angeles to start one of her own. As she careens through the world of medically assisted fertility she is forced to ponder the question – What exactly constitutes a family? Dana finds herself at the mercy of the foster care system, the L.A. public schools, HMO's, and L.A. traffic. Dana's dream comes true in a way she hadn't envisioned. Ultimately, The Baby Project gives voice to the ever-changing face of the American family.
Maya is a 25-year old Mexican woman who illegally crosses the U.S. border to work with her sister Rosa cleaning Office Building 646 in downtown LA. Witnessing firsthand the corruption and abusive working conditions, Maya joins Sam from Justice for Janitors in an attempt to unionize the workers. Alliances are formed, backs are stabbed, and the sisters' relationship is brought to the brink. Inspired by true events and based on the film by Paul Laverty and Ken Loach, Bread and Roses asks: must the American dream come at the cost of human dignity?
New-Pine-Cone-Scout Katie arrives during Cookie Season with the hopes of continuing her legacy as overachiever and perpetual do-gooder. Chaos ensues under the helm of Troop Leader Q'Diva as Katie, her wide-eyed new best friend Jenny, and the other adorably-sailor-tongued Scouts do whatever it takes to sell the most cookies…Whatever. It. Takes. Cookies is a side-splitting razor-sharp-witted musical comedy that will make you ask yourself: How far are you willing to go to do what's best – or be the best?
Crude is a musical romp through the world of big oil and high stakes PR, where solar start-ups and the press are pawns in a game of corporate intrigue. Will sexy PR dynamo Cassidy Sullivan succeed in steamrolling her CEO Dad and his oil giant, End-Run, Inc., into the Green Energy Business? Will she get her revenge on CFO Chad Cook when she discovers he's betrayed her in business and love? Will Cassidy find true love with the investigative journalist digging up the dirt on End-Run, Inc.?
In Dress of Fire, The Trojan War is seen through the eyes of the women forced to endure man's need for power, Queen Hecuba, clairvoyant Cassandra, and she whose face launched a thousand ships, Helen of Troy. As the conflict rages around the walls of the city (whose dilemma strangely resembles that of a modern superpower), each passionate character is as much preoccupied by her own personal drama as by the impending disaster that will sweep it all away. All their fates weave together as Helen of Troy weaves her loom.
Kali and Simone are artists, sisters, and (lately) roommates. They live, work, and navigate their mother's chronic illness in close quarters and relative peace – until they meet Jo, a journalist wrestling with the cost of her recent assignment in Syria. As each sister becomes romantically and creatively entangled with Jo, all 3 women are forced to examine how they relate to their art, the world, and to one another. A Lasting Impression is a musical about love between artists, love between sisters, and the power of storytelling in all its forms.
Molly Murphy and Neil deGrasse Tyson On Our Last Day On Earth is part indie lecture series and part musical cabaret. The story follows famous astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and his biggest fan girl through the Hayden Planetarium in the last 24 hours before the Earth is swallowed by a super-massive black hole.
In 1977, Elizabeth Swados redefined theatre music with her ground-breaking mashup of literature, poetry, sound, and song called Nightclub Cantata. With words by Swados and David Avidan, Nazim Hikmet, Nancy Larrick, Isabella Leitner, Eve Merriam, Pablo Neruda, Frank O'Hara, Sylvia Plath, Muriel Rukeyser, and Delmore Schwartz, this dazzling sung-through event is whimsical, intense, insightful, and singular - a theatrical "happening" unlike any other.
In the fiercely competitive world of girls' soccer, how far would you go for your child? Play Like a Winner is a satire of the soccer mom world based upon the award-winning play, "All About the Kids" by Caytha Jentis. At curtain, Coach Nick lies dead on center stage, impaled by a corner flag, while a chorus of soccer players sings in his honor. Kathy, a soccer mom, steps forward to tell us the story of how all this began…
On the night of their 20th anniversary high school reunion, Greg and Steph revisit their home town after having moved to New York. Kent and Carly are suspicious of their reasons for returning and the four friends dance (sometimes literally) through a series of encounters at their school gym as they try to rekindle old friendships, struggle with their futures (together and separately) and reveal secrets to one another that might have been better left buried beneath a pile of yearbooks. Reasons to be Pretty Happy is a funny, sad, silly and sobering look at friendships and loves that have weathered and lasted for a long, long time--some even past their due dates.
Davy is a lonely college junior who dives into storytelling and fantasy to escape a life weighed down by stress, family dysfunction, and a challenging roommate. When blindsided by an unexpected cancer diagnosis, paralyzed by fear and despair, Davy leaves her own disease untreated and unknown to everyone around her. She pours herself into the search for connection through the stories of others, in order to find her path through life or death decisions, learn how to tell her own story, and uncover the possibility for hope.
It's 1964 and the race is on. The prize? The moon! Touché is a mad mad mad mad musical farce inspired by mostly-true events. Post-Ike. Pre-miniskirt. A go-getting Madison Avenue adman is sent to Moscow to launch a new men's aftershave. Instead, he unwittingly reveals NASA's top secret Apollo Project. A world-famous movie star, a secretary with a heart of gold, a ballerina, a bitter shepherd, banjo-picking Marxists, Russian rocketeers, the CIA, the KGB, and a Soviet space dog mix it up to make this the musical comedy to end all musical comedies.
