UglyRhino's 2012 micro-season of new musical plays, live bands and parties will take place this August at The Brooklyn Lyceum. Our micro-seasons place two plays at the heart of a larger artistic celebration, providing a variety of events on any given evening. What results is a social experience you can’t find in your traditional theater setting. The third annual micro-season will focus on music, featuring two entirely new musical plays developed by the UglyRhino team, as well as a variety of live bands and DJs. These mainstage plays explore the unifying themes of personal, sexual and creative awakenings through unique musical compositions. 

The Awakening 

Adapted from the novella by Kate Chopin

Conceived and written by Bryce Norbitz and Nicole Rosner

Directed by Nicole Rosner

An original play with songs adapted from Kate Chopin’s classic novella of the same name, The Awakening tells the story of Edna Pontellier’s struggle to reconcile her newfound sexual awakening with the prevailing attitudes and conservative social conventions of late nineteenth-century Louisiana. “Edna began to feel like one who awakens gradually out of a dream, a delicious, grotesque, impossible dream, to feel again the realities pressing into her soul.”


Directed by Danny Sharron

Book by Bryce Norbitz

Music by Ben Bonnema

Lyrics by Zayre Ferrer

One part rock concert, one part theatrical experience, GLAMDROMEDA explores the relationship between glam rock music, sexual desire, and visual hedonism. Using the backdrop of the glam rock movement, we follow our protagonist and his newly formed rock star alter ego through an epic journey of self-discovery in the wake of a life-altering glam concert.
