Sister Act
Featuring all-new original, lush and infectious songs by eight-time Oscar-winner, Alan Menken (“Beauty and the Beast,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Little Shop of Horrors” and “Newsies”). “Sister Act” tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her away in the last place anyone would expect—a convent! Set around the Christmas holidays, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she also rediscovers her own in a sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship.

Indecent
A play that follows a Jewish brothel owner and the lesbian romance between his daughter and a prostitute, “Indecent” charts the journey of a drama upheld as a groundbreaking piece of Jewish literature by some, and an act of obscenity by others. An ensemble of seven actors and three musicians portrays more than 40 roles to shed light on one of the most fascinating scandals in theater history.

Ishmael
In the first of our duet of plays with music, a country schoolteacher named Ishmael signs on to a whaling trip with a captain he’s never met. Drawing freely from Herman Melville’s classic novel “Moby Dick,” a shape-shifting actor and three bluegrass musicians conjure a funny, thoughtful, harrowing tale of one man’s drive to see the world.

Cardboard Piano
Is our capacity for love greater than violence? In Northern Uganda, the daughter of an American missionary and a local teenage girl steal into a candlelit church to exchange vows in a secret wedding ceremony. But when an escalating civil war encroaches on their fragile union, they cannot escape its reach. Confronting the cost of intolerance, this powerful drama examines violence, the struggle to rebuild, as well as the human capacity for love and forgiveness. Audience Advisory: This play contains gunshots, strong language and adult content.
