Off The Wall

OFF THE WALL is a romantic comedy loosely inspired by the 1911 theft of the Mona Lisa from the Louvre. In this five character, ninety minute, original musical, the Mona Lisa is brought to life when Vincenzo, a museum worker who idolizes the famous painting, kisses her. Much to Vincenzo’s dismay, Mona Lisa immediately starts causing chaos all over Paris. This fresh, tongue-in-cheek musical may take place in the Belle Époque, but it whimsically explores contemporary themes, including the glorification of celebrity, the obsession with physical beauty and the importance of taking a second glance at preconceived notions of love and art.

Fancy Nancy The Musical

Dress up in your most glamorous attire, pour a spot of tea, and join us for the most elegant musical ever! Nancy and her pals Wanda, Rhonda, Bree, and Lionel are thrilled to be dancing in their very first show, “Deep Sea Dances.” Nancy is positive – (that’s fancy for 100% sure) – that she will be cast as the Mermaid. When another girl gets the role, Nancy is stuck playing a dull, dreary tree. But Nancy learns that anyone and anything can be fancy. All it takes is a dash of imagination.

“The show demonstrates that ordinary children can be fancy too.”
New York Times

Miles & Me

MILES & ME is a coming-of-age comedy that follows the story of Cameron Jones, an aspiring composer overwhelmed by his overbearing Jewish mother, his relationship-obsessed girlfriend, and a temporary job from Hell. When a mysterious producer, Miles, offers him the career-boost he needs, Cameron travels across the country only to find out that Miles is not at all who he claims to be.

Placebo

Robert Wilson and his brother Blake persuade their town to purchase what they claim to be a miracle pill, invented by their late father, the scientist Dr. Wilson. The pill is actually a placebo made of nothing but sugar, but the town, believing it to be real, becomes carried away with the ‘miracles’ that the pill is reportedly responsible for. Robert and Blake’s plan is wildly successful…but at what cost? PLACEBO is a story about dreams, and questions the idea of reality in a world where what isn’t ‘real’ often appears more promising.

“PLACEBO is unique, clever and tuneful, venturing into new musical theatre territory never mined before.”
–Jason Fortner, Broadway Cafe SocietyBroadwayWorld

Unwritten Rules

What do you do when what’s wrong is right?

“The score is extremely accomplished and rich… The music has a strong, contemporary feeling and a powerful and distinctive voice… clearly a composer with a great deal of technical skill, but also with the ability to infuse music with emotional power and depth.”
–Elise Dewsberry, Artistic Director, New Musicals Inc.

In the beginning, God made the heavens and the Earth.
And God saw that it was good.
