A World Premiere

By Ifa Bayeza

Directed by Talvin Wilks

A small, segregated town is about to be turned upside down as fate brings a young boy from Chicago to a candy counter in Money, Mississippi. The second play in Ifa Bayeza’s powerful

to critical acclaim. Join us for this second chapter as we open ritual space to remember and reconnect our hearts with our history in service of a better tomorrow.

FLOWERS FOR THE ROOM | a new musical

book by Jessica Lind Peterson
lyrics by Blake Thomas
music by Blake Thomas and Matt Riehle
directed by Jason Peterson
musical direction by Matt Riele

FEBRUARY 1st – MARCH 3rd, 2019

Allison and Jake have only just begun their new lives when a tragic accident changes everything. Trapped inside her own mind, Allison (Jessica Lind Peterson) hears the world around her, but the world cannot hear her. Julie (Norah Long), a recently divorced social worker and reluctant medium, attempts to convince Allison to hold on. Magic meets mundane as the unconscious mind collides with the reality of hospital life. As days turn to weeks, Jake (Zachary Stofer) loses hope of getting his wife back and both must decide whether to continue the fight, or to finally let each other go. With a story by award-winning playwright Jessica Lind Peterson (String, Miracle on Christmas Lake) and a gorgeous original score by contemporary folk sensation Blake Thomas, Flowers for the Room is a stunning new musical about human resilience and the power of choice.

Falsettos revolves around the life of a charming, intelligent, neurotic gay man named Marvin, his wife, his lover, his about-to-be-Bar-Mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door.
