Diet Monologues, The Musical

Synopsis:
This is a musical revue with Monologues, and not a standard book musical. the Monologues are more like character-based stand-up comedy than they are like the Vagina Monologues. the spirit of the piece is akin to "When Pigs Fly" with plus-size singing actors sharing with the audience a wide (no pun intended) variety of experiences from the world of Living Large. there is a long arc to the show, as it moves both the actors and the audience from "Bloated" to "Lighter", from fat pets to fat love to loving life, whatever your size. audiences have been known to form spontaneous support groups in the lobby after the show, and it leaves people feeling good about themselves (sometimes for the first time in years).

Notes:
music direction by Carl Haan. the Midtown International theatre Festival inaugurates its new Next Step MITF Developmental Series, which showcases new works by six MITF Alumni.

This is a story about motherhood, friends and lovers, sibling rivalry, sexual yearning, and a lesbian marriage. Set in present-day Boston, the Maternal Instinct begins with a birthday party for Lillian, an MIT professor whose research in the maternal instincts of mice is about to pay off and make her and her boss, Fred, very big names in biochemistry. Lillian's sister, Emma, has a special birthday gift; she will pay for a sperm donor so that Lillian's spouse, Sarah, can have a baby. Sarah has been feeling a desire to have a baby, as though someone flicked a switch deep inside of her. But even though Lillian loves children, she finds a reason to reject this "present": she is worried a sperm donor might have secret swimming around in his DNa, and as a scientist who knows the importance of genetics, she won't take the risk. It becomes clear the marriage of Sarah and Lillian is in jeapordy if Sarah can't fulfill her maternal desire. So while Lillian is away at a conference, Sarah and Emma decide that Fred, Lillian's best friend, would make the perfect donor

My Occasion Of Sin

Synopsis:
Inspired by true events that led to a race riot in the author's birthplace of Omaha, Nebraska, My Occasion of Sin is set in a segregated city in 1969. Two men from very different backgrounds: Luigi, an African American jazz drummer, and George, a white music store owner who specializes in the accordion, are thrown together by fate, finding common ground in their love of music. at the same time, Mary Margaret and Vivian, two young girls from opposite sides of the segregated city, each drink in the new jazz scene for reasons of their own. Music seems to unite and uplift everyone around . . . at first. Soon occasions of sin - where fear, mistrust and racism fester - are inescapable. Violence erupts, changing everyone's lives forever.
