|Honestly Abe The Musical
| Open: 02/01/13 Close: 02/08/13
La Muse Venale Acting Troupe presents a musical tale of dreams, possibilities and heartbreak with Robert L. Hecker’s Honestly Abe, shining a bright light on the early, little-known life of President Abraham Lincoln. Set in Indiana in the 1800s and based on historical facts, Honestly Abe uncovers young Abe Lincoln as a lanky prankster who loved to read and who can spin a yarn with the best of them. Abe was close to his mother and sister but his relationship with his father was strained at best. Abe Lincoln dreams of the day he can quit the family farm, leave rail-splitting behind, and become a riverboat captain. But family tragedies, a yearning for revenge by Abe, and the advice of a close friend cause Abe to change his plans. Abe Lincoln is thrust upon a path toward law and politics instead; but not before leaving behind someone in his life whom he loves dearly.

|The Tragedy Of Abraham Lincoln
| Open: 04/13/06 Close: 05/07/06
THE TRAGEDY OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN, a new drama by M. Stefan Strozier, is coming to Where Eagles Dare Theater (347 West 36th Street), April 13th-May 7th, 2006, Thursday-Saturday at 8 p.m. & Sunday matinees at 7 p.m. LINCOLN is Strozier's third play to appear off-off Broadway.
LINCOLN is a very well-wrought and focused play. Alan Kanevsky is directing a cast of 20 actors and a full crew. The play covers the last year of President Lincoln's life, and all of the events surrounding it. The play has one central, unmistakable theme, which is surprisingly relevant to 2006. In fact, this theme is most likely news to most people; unless, they are very familiar with the subjects of the American Civil War and Abraham Lincoln.
Strozier is the founder of La Muse Venale Acting Troupe, which is producing LINCOLN. The large cast features off-off Broadway's greatest actors. If you are in search of talent, LINCOLN is an excellent way to find it. LMV's primaries will be available after the play for discussion, along with the cast and crew, in one of John Chatterton's studios.
La Muse Venale, Inc. has produced nine plays at myriad of theatres, and in different, prominent festivals in New York City. LMV is a NY State Board of Education-approved, not-for-profit organization. Part of our mission is to bring theatre to those who do not normally experience it. Therefore, we have performed our plays in homeless shelters over 10 times, as well as in public parks.

The Whales is a very funny satire on the theatre industry, written in the manner of an Aristophanes comedy. The cast approaches 30 people and there is choreographed dance numbers and poetry and songs and, at the heart of it all, a moving story of triumph over adversity and an exploration of mental illness, schizophrenia and homelessness.
