A story about connections, commitments, and the healing of the human heart. 

This deeply-moving, intelligent, and truly original musical takes an intimate look at the complexities of familial relationships set to the backdrop of a changing America from the 1950s to the 1990s. Jen has two major relationships in her life, her brother and her son. Once extremely close, the Vietnam war tears Jen and brother John apart forever. Later, Jen names her only son John and tries to make up for past mistakes to the consternation and alienation of her son, John. With incredible music by Andrew Lippa and book by Tom Greenwald, this tour-de-force musical for two actors will astonish you. We know you’ll enjoy this show about connections, commitments, and the healing of the human heart.

July 7, 2023 - July 23, 2023                              Tickets $45

The forgotten women leaders of the civil rights movement are remembered in this funny and powerful production. 

During the height of the Civil Rights Movement, four female activists are preparing for an important speech by Rosa Parks in their Virginia office. As they make phone calls and paint signs, they begin to wonder whether the proclamation of equality amongst mankind includes womenkind as well. This funny, poignant, and insightful play reclaims the stories of the forgotten female leaders who blazed the trail for desegregation and women’s rights and takes us right up to the present day leaders who are still fighting for equal justice under the law. Come join us as we loudly proclaim, “Black women’s stories matter!”

September 29, 2023 - October 15, 2023
