Synopsis: In a time of civil strife and growing political unrest, the fate of an English king is threatened not by war, but by the prejudice of his own court against the man he loves. Marlowe’s play illustrates the romance between Edward and his beloved Gaveston with surprising candor, and reveals that not even the Crown is safe against the crushing intolerance of Church and State.

Synopsis: Billy is a young man who lives with an intellectual, chaotic and sharp-tongued family. Arguments and insults regularly fly around the dinner table, all while Billy silently watches the scene unfold – he has been deaf since birth. He has managed to adapt to his family’s unconventional ways, but they’ve never really returned the favor. His world is turned upside down when he meets Sylvia, a young woman on the cusp of deafness herself. Fresh out of London and New York, and winner of the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, Tribes is the hysterical and touching coming-of-age story about the struggle for self-identity and what it truly means to be understood.

Synopsis: When Deb loses her most precious possession ‑ the notes to her graduate thesis ‑ she unwittingly starts a chain of events that turns the ordinary days of four New Yorkers into something extraordinary as they search for fulfillment, happiness, love, and cabs. Told through a series of intricately connected songs and vignettes, this Off-Broadway hit is a vibrant, original musical about growing up and enjoying the view.
