Shelita Burns, an African-American editor, publishes Bee-luther-hatchee, the autobiography of a reclusive 72-year-old black woman named Libby Price. Shelita has never met Libby, and when the book wins a prestigious award she decides to deliver it to her in person. The shocking meeting between editor and writer stirs the soul, challenges preconceptions and builds to a shattering act of violence.

“A powerful, provocative piece of theatrical writing. You want to run down the street twisting people’s arms to see it.”
- Linda Eisenstein, Cleveland Plain Dealer

By the creator of the Tony Award-winning Wicked and Pippin, Children of Eden is the big-hearted, inspirational stories of Adam and Eve and Noah and the Ark. This large and moving, foot-stomping musical is two biblical tales telling the human story within the epics we’ve known since childhood.

Children of Eden is not only for Stephen Schwartz fans, but for every theatre lover: a family musical with story and pageantry for the kids and a lot of heart and warmth for the adults.

 This ingenious comedy was the Winner of the 2014 Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of an Off-Broadway or Broadway Play. Civilization has collapsed. A group of survivors surround a campfire and reminisce about the plot of The Simpsons television episode, “Cape Feare.” Seven years later, The Simpsons and other snippets of commercials, jingles, pop songs, and sitcoms have become the live entertainment of a post-apocalyptic society striving to hold on to its past.

Story-telling choreographers capture life’s most profound moments and the dreams, desires, love, loneliness and loss that are inescapable, yet indescribable in the world of words.  Only the stirring complexity of dance can capture the fleeting moments, complex memories and multifarious mayhem of our existence and bring joy in the purging of emotions.

 This timely, political comedy centers on an Athenian housewife who calls for the women of Greece to help end the Peloponnesian War. Her plan is hard-hitting and radical: all women must refuse to have sex with their husbands until they agree to peace in Greece. Will Lysistrata and her crew accomplish what the politicians could not?

“Fun, lighthearted and successfully adapted to modern day times.” - Yorkshire Post
