PETER SISK certified reviewer June 09, 2019
When it serves a purpose above that of mere entertainment (a noble enough purpose, one supposes), drama sheds a light on the human condition, highlighting some aspects and shrouding others in darkness. The actor struts and frets his or her hour upon the stage. We in the audience spectate and speculate - we reflect on the spectacle.

My overall impression was a positive one; the play is fabulous, super entertaining! All the individual stories were interesting; the overlapping of the actors and the acting collaborations in the skits were so cleverly executed. ... full review

Horny! the Musical

Satyrs and nymphs crash a woman's high-society wedding rehearsal when she starts sprouting horns. As the horns grow, so do new...feelings.

Jessie's Messy Mind

A "crazy" solo show that makes a mental difference. Jessie is an artist with schizo-affective whose show is a refreshing, humorous look into the heart of mental difference. You'll either leave enlightened or simply lightened up!
