Big Love < - buy tickets
The story follows fifty brides who flee Greece to a manor in Italy to avoid forced arranged marriages to their fifty cousins. While the brides and grooms wait for the impending wedding day, the characters raise issues of gender politics and the balance of power, love, refugees seeking asylum, and domestic violence. (a darkly fun Kill Bill-like twist to the story)   This darkly provocative play revolves around a group of women who are figuratively screaming "I'm MAD AS HELL and I'm not gonna take it anymore!"

Our Lady of 121st Street
Our Lady Auditions

The Ortiz Funeral Room is in big trouble: The body of beloved community activist and nun Sister Rose has been stolen from the viewing room, and waiting for her proper return are some of New York City’s most emotionally charged, life-challenged neighborhood denizens, trying to find a place to put their grief, checkered pasts and their uncertain futures. Among the equally hilarious and tragic twelve characters, you’ll meet Rooftop, a chronically unfaithful but otherwise popular Los Angeles DJ, looking to reconcile with the love of his life; Pinky and Edwin, two brothers tragically linked forever; and the outrageously angry Norca, who doesn’t let the fact that she slept with her best friend’s husband deter her from the full expectation of being immediately forgiven of her sin by her best friend, Inez, still in pain fifteen years later. The rest of the crowd in this dark, insightful and very funny comedy inevitably square off on each other, motivated by rage, pain and a scary desire to come clean- perhaps for the first time.

It Ain't Nothin' But the Blues

This incredible musical was written and created to tell the history and evolution of the Blues music, how it began from African beats and rhythms and what is now known as “Traditionals”.  Without the blues, there would be no modern Country & Western, Rhythm & Blues, Rock and Roll, Hip Hop or Rap. We are delighted to share this musical with some of the most famous and celebrated songs in the history of the Blues movement with our community.
