Girl Of the Golden West, The

Synopsis:
exploding onto the frontiers of uninhabited California, the only female in the entire Gold Rush town of Cloudy Mountain sets up her saloon. Mythologized in David Belascos grandiose 1911 novel and canonized as one of the great spaghetti westerns, a play-turned-novel-turned-Puccini-extravaganza is now a soulful new musical ode to the unexplored expanse of our nations forgotten periphery and the baffling potential of what might have been.

La Boheme (Spoken)

Synopsis:
La Boheme (Spoken) is a lyrical dialogue loyally adapted from Puccini's original libretto to his iconic opera La Boheme. the result is a larger-than-life play, about young artists, mostly broke, hyper, and always on the brink of inspiration and death. the musical roots (repetitions and rhyme) and the awkwardness of translation enable a language that is poetically charged.

Leaves Of Grass

Synopsis:
Conceived and directed by Jeremy Bloom, Leaves of Grass will highlight Whitman's most groundbreaking poem, Song of Myself, as realized by a chorus of 25 diverse and fully nude performers. While exposed flesh is enough to intrigue theatergoers, director Bloom insists that staging nudity in the context of Whitman's text is the most honest approach. Indeed, 'each succeeding line, passage, and turn of phrase celebrates the bare human form as an intersection of nature and industry', states Bloom. In keeping in line with Whitman's well-regarded directness and sensuality, the unclothed bodies will be warmly lit against the stark, white-walled space of the Cell, while interacting with tubs of milk, a lectern, and open windows. It is Bloom's greatest intention, along with the will of the performers, to further connect Whitman's text to that of the natural world

Upper Room, The

Synopsis:
The Upper Room is a new play with original music inspired by the back-to-the-land movement. Set on an island way off the north coast of Maine, the last participants of a once thriving commune meet the sea. Anxious and restless, the quorum gathers around the table in their upper room to confront the rising water and certain members curious ailments. A darkly humorous consideration of spirituality and the dangers of our changing environment combines with a live mixed score, antique scuba suits and an overhead projector to create a brand new music theater event.
