John Epperson: The Artist Principally Known as Lypsinka|

Directed by Jay Rogers with a nod to the urbane cabaret style of Bobby Short, Epperson’s evening embraces classic entertainment filled with stories, tunes, and a few surprises. The entertainer, aka The Goddess of Showbiz Lypsinka, commands the piano and stage with a musical journey that weaves together Stephen Sondheim, Frank Loesser, Jule Styne, Kay Thompson, Kander & Ebb, Comden & Green, Rodgers & Hammerstein, and transgender icon Christine Jorgenson.

THE GOOD EARTH|
Inspired by true events, The Good Earth is the explosive new story of a Welsh village fighting to save their homes and mountain unravelled through physical theatre akin to the Welsh-trained Frantic Assembly, new writing and Welsh folk song, bringing to life a valley torn apart by their council, big business and eventually themselves.
Facing pressure from the local council to move when a new development is proposed, a small group of ardent Welsh villagers decide to fight back. This explosive new play provides cultural context to the anti-establishment sentiment of rural Wales that has partly led to the recent "Brexit" vote.
