Show Descriptions:

As Far As We Know
This ensemble performance chronicles the struggles of an Ohio family tortured by the absence of their son, a soldier abducted during an ambush on a Halliburton transport in Iraq. Inspired by the capture of SSG Matt Maupin.

Beautiful Child
Manhattan 1955: Truman Capote and Marilyn Monroe attend the funeral of Constance Collier, Marilyn’s acting coach. A vivid snapshot of the Marilyn only Capote knew.

Bombs In Your Mouth
Chug Beer, eat Jello, arm wrestle. Do whatever it takes not to talk about the memory of your deadbeat dad. A comedy by Cory Patrick.

… Double Vision
Love hurts. Running from it can leave you half-crazy and riding the subway nude. Six singles navigate the tricky waters of modern urban relationships in this dark romantic comedy. [Warning: Nudity]

Hilliary Angonisties
Spring 2009. Hillary in the White House. 65 million people disappear. Is the Rapture upon us? Pat Robertson, Stephen Hawking, Chelsea and the Antichrist weigh in. Can Madame President avert Armageddon? Starring Priscilla Barnes as Mrs. Clinton.

Jamaica Farewell
Revolution. CIA. Seduction. Desperation. A dream. Heartbreak. Handsome. American. Customs. Million dollars. Duffel bag. Prostitutes. Bullets. Adrenaline. Kerosene. Run for your life.

Lights Rise On Grace
Grace falls for Large. Riece falls for Large. Large... falls. First love. Lost love. New love. Tough love. Follow three desperate New Yorkers as they defy tradition, uncover and recover secrets.

Mary Bridget Poppleton is Writing a Memoir
Mary Bridget Poppleton fakes her own pregnancy. Why? Because she's writing a memoir, and who wants to read about a happy childhood?

Naked In A Fish Bowl
Unscripted, uninhibited and wildly entertaining, this unique improv-comedy eavesdrops on the lives of four friends in NYC.

Paper Son
Byron Yee's acclaimed solo show about growing up in Oklahoma, moving to California, becoming a stand-up comedian, and then finding his heritage.

Piaf: Love Conquers All
For those who have loved, suffered and survived. Come share a cocktail with a French legend as she shares her passion for music, men and morphine!

Riding The Bull
A love affair between a devout rodeo clown and a hell-raising rancher leads to Graceland, prophetic sex, and cows that rise from the dead.
