"Rooms" (1955 excerpts) by renowned choreographer Anna Sokolow, deals with the psychic isolation and unfulfilled desires of people living in the big city. The jazz score by Kenyon Hopkins catches the pulse and beat of modern society. An enduring masterpiece of twentieth-century art.

Also featuring dynamic works by current students and recent alumni choreographers. Created in quarantine, these works speak from seven individual perspectives and prove that dance, at its essence, will adapt and evolve to express itself.

The dark underbelly of Hollywood in the 1950's is revealed through the world of Nick Ralston: a closeted, gay, talent agent in an era where it was illegal to be "out". Nick will stop at nothing to promote his clients, including revealing everyone's dirty, little secrets ... before they can reveal his. This "live" radio play, with the look and feel of an old Hollywood "Film Noir", depicts what someone had to do to succeed in Tinsel Town long before the #MeToo era. It tells a story of guts, glamor and the true price of fame.

FOR MATURE AUDIENCES.

Adapted from the best-selling novel of the same name, the story follows two immigrant families navigating new lives in an adopted country. After fifteen-year-old Maribel Rivera is injured in a terrible accident, her family leaves behind their comfortable life in Mexico, risking everything to get her the care she needs in the United States. Shortly after arriving, kindred spirits Maribel and Mayor Toro, the son of one of their new neighbors, embark on a relationship with profound repercussions for everyone involved. Deftly interwoven with testimonials of men and women who came to the United States from Latin America, "The Book of Unknown Americans" illustrates the lives behind the debate on immigration.

In the late summer of 1892, Lizzie Borden was accused of murdering her father and stepmother with an axe. Testimonies were muddled, evidence was incomplete, and Lizzie was acquitted. Lizzie: The Musical delves into the mysterious mind of Lizzie Borden to speculate on her motivations. With her older sister Emma, maid Bridget, and neighbor Alice, the four women create a punk rock score inspired by the music of the Runaways and Bikini Kill to retell the story of that murderous summer morning.


Contains adult subject matter, some of a violent and sexual nature as well as strobe effects and some graphic language. If you have experienced trauma, sexual violence or assault, there is help. Seek medical assistance and contact local resources for ongoing support.
