I'll Be Damned  | Open: 07/01/10 Close: 07/18/10
 I'll Be Damned is the story of a friendless, comic-book-loving homeschooler named Louis who receives a seemingly irresistible offer from Satan. Louis' mother is a little late in coming to terms with her son growing up, God seems lost in his vision of a perfect world, and Louis is discovering himself as he attempts to find just one true friend. This fresh new musical comedy begs the universal question: "Is there a way to make people like you without having to sell your soul to the devil?"

The Piano Teacher  | Open: 11/18/07 Close: 12/23/07
