When 23-year-old performer Walker Vreeland took a job as a lead singer for Norwegian Cruise Lines in 2003, he could never have imagined the voyage that lay ahead. Boarding the Bermuda-bound ship would precipitate a mental breakdown so severe, he would wind up months later at Johns Hopkins Hospital's Mood Disorder Psychiatric Ward. From Ship to Shape is a tragicomic autobiographical monologue about one young man's struggle with mental illness in today's world.
Panther Woman is a work of historical fiction chronicling one woman's experience in the original Black Panther Party for Self-Defense. Prepare to embark on an unforgettable journey from the Jim Crow South to the civil rights movement of the 1960s and 1970s through a tale of struggle, love, and hope for the future.
The Plurality of Privacy Project in Five-Minute Plays (P3M5) is a transatlantic theater project initiated to explore the value of privacy. In cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Washington, theaters across the United States and Europe have commissioned playwrights to write five-minute plays themed around the question, "What does privacy mean to you in the digital age?" The results are being presented in different formats by a network of theaters between January 2017 and June 2018. These performances, staged readings, and community forums create an artistic and cultural dialogue centered around varying American and European understandings of privacy.
Note: Performance dates and locations vary. For more information, visit the Goethe-Institut website (URL below).

Strap on your ruby slippers and join the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Lion, Dorothy, and her little dog, too, for this adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, the classic story of the girl who wakes up in a strange land filled with witches, munchkins, and monkeys, and befriends a cowardly lion, a tin man without a heart, and a scarecrow with no brain in her quest to find her way back home. Journey down the yellow brick road through the land of Oz to meet the wizard while humming along to memorable songs from the Oscar-winning film, including "Over the Rainbow," "We're Off to See the Wizard," and "If I Only Had a Brain."
