"A Love Story (With Supernatural Roadblocks)" takes place in two worlds: Earth and the Cupidverse, primarily at the office of Cupidity LLC, a supernatural matchmaking firm.

But her world is rattled when new employee Marley leads her to question everything she knows about herself. "A Love Story" examines the human (and cupid!) ego with camp, charm, and a whole lot of heart.

Open: 10/17/19- Close: 10/19/19 VOYAGE DE OUF (PERFORMED IN FRENCH WITH ENGLISH TITLES)
Voyage de Ouf by Sylvaine Hinglais is an inventive theatrical production with a mosaic of allegorical skits, each with its own color, humor and emotion. The music is live, original, and contemporary, evoking the magic of soaring dreams. 

The word OUF is French verlan (a cool Francophone slang) for the word FOU (crazy) that is pronounced backwards! 

Ouf are on the train. Ouf wait for a bus, a truck, a boat. Ouf walk straight ahead. They come from everywhere, without knowing where they are going. Ouf feel violence and the need for love intimately intertwined. Some sleep at a beach campsite, others at refugee camps. Some dream of a lost face, others of being able to eat. All hope to find a place in the sun. In the sun? But as the earth turns, the sun moves constantly. So, when do we get there? 

Performed in French with English titles.
