The Fantasticks is a timeless coming-of-age story, revolving around two young lovers who are brought together over their feuding fathers objections through the agency of a darkly romantic impresario, El Gallo, The Narrator. The story unfolds inextricably within its music, including some beautiful and deceptively simple songs that have enmeshed themselves in the collective heart of our culture including "Try to Remember," "Soon It's Gonna Rain," "Plant A Raddish," and "They Were You."Try to remember the kind of September when life was slow and oh,so mellow."

"The Frankenstein Summer" concerns five lovers exploring the heights of passion and the depths of evil. It is the meeting of literary giants George Gordon Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley and Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley in the summer of 1816 at Byron's magnificent Swiss villa. They experimented with free love and drugs and discovered an evil that threatened their sanity and inspired Mary Shelley's classic novel "Frankenstein".
