In this comedy by David Javerbaum, God, along with two archangels, answers many of the deepest (and not-so-deep) questions that have plagued humankind since creation. Academy Award nominee, Tony Award nominee, and multi-Golden Globe winner Kathleen Turner stars as God.
In 1914, an extraordinary event took place during World War I. Thousands of men put down their weapons, left the trenches, and met their enemies for a Christmas Day truce.

It's a beautiful story that puts a human face on war, with music and text taken from letters, journals, and war documents.

Chicago. 1936. Get ready to enter a smoke-filled world of cons and capers, where nothing is what it seems and no one is who he or she appears to be. Based on the 1973 Academy Award-winning film, The Sting tells the tale of a pair of con men: small-town grifter Johnny Hooker and big-time hustler Henry Gondorff, who plot to bring down the city's most corrupt racketeer. The Tony Award-winning creative team includes director John Rando (On the Town), choreographer Warren Carlyle (Hello Dolly!), and book writer Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone). The original score is by composer-lyricist team Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis (Urinetown). The Sting takes audiences back to an era when the blues reigned, the stakes were high, and the dice were always loaded.
