Open: 02/12/19- Close: 03/02/19 Bonnie's Last Flight
BONNIE’S LAST FLIGHT is a three-part play set on a plane. Our audience makes the trip as passengers: sitting on the tarmac before takeoff, floating at cruising altitude, and buckling down for the wild and rocky descent back to land. 

 

It’s Jan’s retirement flight. Everyone knows, except for Greig, Jan’s best friend and coworker of many years. As Greig waxes nostalgic, Jan worries about life post-retirement. LeeAnne, a klutzy newbie flight attendant with a dark past, must avoid her ex on the plane while Captain, a waggish pilot with a weakness for unlimited Bloody Mary Brunches, is caught in a love triangle. Erik, the co-pilot with a heart of gold, can’t get a word in edgewise. Presiding over the flight is Mark Twain, of course.

Open: 02/22/19- Close: 03/10/19 I FAVOR MY DADDY
Is Jamie (4-time Moth champ and “natural raconteur” -Washington Post) the full-blown version of Daddy Poo—not the Catholic, conservative part, but the gay, alcoholic part? “Jamie lights up the stage…a riveting, thoroughly polished performance…comedic perfection.” (Theater Is Easy “Best Bet” of New York International Fringe Festival)

Darkly comic, “I Favor My Daddy” is the follow up to "Dangerous When Wet: Booze, Sex, and My Mother." That show was about Jamie’s drinking and sexuality, and his mother Mama Jean. This show is about Jamie’s father, Daddy Poo, and HIS drinking and HIS sexuality. Jamie struggles to discover who his father really was. In the last years they have together, Jamie reveals his secrets to Daddy Poo.

Open: 02/22/19- Close: 03/17/19 SISTAS ON FIRE: A NEWSICAL
A musical revue that examines pressing social issues from an African-American female perspective. 

New York, NY - The personal becomes the political when passionately-opinionated African American women speak their minds on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Black Lives Matter, missing black women and girls, black-on-black crime, and male/female relationships in a soul-stirring mix of song, dance, poetry, and prose. The interrelated dramatic monologues range from tragedy to comedy in a “newsical” revue that examines pressing social issues from an African-American female perspective. Sistas on Fire! A Newsical uses theatre to provoke thought, encourage social activism, and build bridges that cross race, class, gender and culture. In short, it's For Colored Girls for the New Millennium.

Set in the seaside kingdom of Illyria, this startlingly modern romp is replete with fiendish pranks, public brawls, and an original rocking score by the band Honey West’s Ted Zurkowski. The production will play a limited engagement from Friday, February 22nd through Sunday, March 17th at The Sheen Center (18 Bleecker Street in NYC).

TWELFTH NIGHT, centered on twins Viola and Sebastian separated by shipwreck, has easily maintained its relevance for over 400 years,
