If you said yes to any of this, then you will love that TND Productions is bringing back the audience and crowd-pleasing Quest of the Hero! Director Li Murillo comes out of her hiatus and takes the original work of Michael Hagins to the next level. The story centers around young man Chester (Christian Sochor) and his quest to save the princess while enduring loads of fighting, ridiculous sidekicks and dangerous villains in his hope to finally get laid. Quest of the Hero! is a satire on old-school Nintendo games, old-school role playing games such as Dungeons and Dragons, and new-school stage combat, along with an homage to society stereotypes and the gamer culture.
The show will be performed at the Beckmann Theatre at the American Theatre of Actors, 314 W. 54th St. between 8th and 9th Ave. The show will be performed in rep with the Merchant of Venice.

TND Productions presents The Merchant of Venice. Director Michael Hagins brings Shakespeare's story of prejudice and revenge to the live stage at Beckmann Theatre at the American Theatre of Actors.
The Merchant of Venice is the story of Antonio (Steve Walker) a Venetian merchant who loans money to his best friend Bassanio (Nathan Veazey) to earn the opportunity to woo the lovely heiress Portia (Sonia Hebe). However, a serie...s of misfortunes lead Antonio to owe the money to the unscrupulous Jewish lender Shylock (Henri Douvry), and nothing will stop him from collecting the interest agreed upon - a pound of flesh from Antonio's chest. Shakespeare's story of prejudice and revenge contains many elements of comedy, drama and of course, love - hopefully - triumphant!

Justin's an up and coming artist thriving in NYC whose world grinds to a halt when the worse thing possible happens to him - he gets the call to come home due to his grandmother's failing health. Slinking back to small town North Carolina with his latest one night stand forced upon him, he finds himself back neck deep in the family issues that he had been avoiding for more than a decade and facing the girl he left behind. In the midst of the culture clash between small town quirkiness and big city society behavior, Justin may actually discover what he had been running from for all of those years. Phare Play Productions is proud to present the world premier of Blake Bradford's newest play - a hard look at the humor and heartache of going home.
