To everyone else in their Tennessee town, Alice Mitchell and Freda Ward are childhood friends. But when Al's family decides to leave town, they must make the choice to act on their promises or lose each other forever. Based on a high-profile turn-of-the-century murder case, Al Takes A Bride hinges on impossible choices, where decisions rest somewhere between dreaming and dying.
Emerald and Ty are twin orphaned teenagers who live in the backwoods of the Florida Everglades and wrestle 'gators in a roadside attraction. Careening through encounters in their small tourist town, they meet self-destructive young locals looking for a future and desperate young wanderers looking for a home; all carry secrets under ever-present layers of desire. Alternately realistic and surreal, scored with gritty rock music, Alligator is a muscular, satisfying play about learning to tame our darkest impulses.
Anna Christie tells the story of a young woman's struggle for redemption and a chance at a new life. Harboring a troubling secret from her past, Anna reunites with her father, a man she hardly knows. When Anna meets a shipwrecked young sailor and the two fall in love, she finds she can no longer hide her past from the two men in her life. As her secret gets revealed, the bonds of love are tested. A powerful and relevant retelling of O'Neill's classic, the play continues to challenge our understanding of honor and dignity.
Beautiful Monster is a new play depicting the final hours of the life of Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein. On the eve of her expected death, Mary, gripped by madness, is visited by the dead: her husband and Romantic poet Percy Shelley, their shared lover Lord Byron, and literary rival John William Polidori, author of the first known vampire fiction — fiction begun, along with Frankenstein, on that now famous night of ghost stories on the banks of Lake Geneva. As the clock ticks toward Mary's death, she recalls in a series of hallucinations her heart-wrenching confrontations with Percy's formidable mother and the tender friendship of her loving stepsister. She's even confronted by the monster she created.
Note: This show includes nudity and sexual content.

The powerful words of Dickens are seamlessly woven into and around the songs of the season in this dark, joyous, raw, and altogether winning adaptation that makes its return after a four-year hiatus. Enjoyed by NYC audiences since 2002, and Boston in 2013, this haunting celebration of humanity promises to thrill and move audiences like never before with its unique blend of chills, music, and heart.
In Blessed Unrest's A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens' beloved holiday classic meets innovative, socially conscious devised theater. The basics — Ebenezer Scrooge's lonely existence and his life-changing decision to enact positive change in the troubled world around him — stay the same. But this adaptation, written by Matt Opatrny, returns to the little-known origins of its source: a political pamphlet titled "An Appeal to the People of England on Behalf of the Poor Man's Child" that Dickens considered writing but never published. Opatrny's play honors Dickens' original intent of examining an unjust socioeconomic system. Under Jessica Burr's direction, A Christmas Carol becomes a raw, physical, and darkly comic story but remains a family-friendly holiday show. Six performers play 37 characters who speak fluent Dickens, wear quirky costumes, and dance to Lady Gaga.
Doris and Cleveland were dating until Doris took a job out of town for a year. Now Doris is back, and the two of them try to rekindle the flame.
Fancy Theater Blues! showcases Rick McCabe, an emerging playwright tackling the trials and tribulations of life in theater. Doing all he can to keep his head above water, McCabe is purposelessly hammered down by a tyrant of a girlfriend. To add pain to injury, a mysterious theater critic, Albert Fish, rips McCabe apart in a scathing review of his latest production, Cunt in Blue Paint! The star of the show, seemingly washed up Gorgeous Marty Makers, struggles with confidence and whether or not gaining the approval of another is worth taking someone's life over. Following tragedy, a questionable and quizzical Detective Billy Catskill berates McCabe with questions that no one can seem to find the answers to. By way of spirit, Gorgeous' daughter Lulu, a practicing Satanist, shows McCabe just what it means to fend for one's self and how ultimately, to Hail Satan!
From Cold Lake is a serialized monthly radio play set in the fictional town of Cold Lake, Minnesota.
Take a left at the Texaco on County Road 8, keep right when you pass the barn with the funny roof, and once you start to feel kinda lost, that's how you know you're almost there. And it just so happens that the time has come to celebrate Cold Lake's bicentennial. From the ice fishing fleets to local artist Linda Klaver's open mic night at Debbie's Bar/Bait Shop, this is the townspeople's year, and gosh darn if they're not gonna shine.
From Cold Lake is written and directed by Colin Waitt, with an original score by Drama Desk nominee Thomas Crawford (SeaWife).
The Hummm explores the soundscape of Chekhov's Three Sisters and selected short stories. Based on the belief that vibration carries meaning, the piece uses sound as the driving force to unpack the subtlety and musicality of Chekhov's most lonely women.
Featuring four actresses, the show is set in a post-apocalyptic future where all the military men have died and only the women remain. Humming, whining, whispering, clamoring — this show wraps the audience in a 'Chekhovian polyphony,' where the chords are made of ecstasy, anguish, and perpetual disillusion. Incorporating a wide range of music and media, featuring a live DJ, and intensified by stylistic choreography, The Hummm creates an unprecedented aural and visual experience of the Three Sisters.
The piece uncovers a love tangle between the Western goddess Demeter—frozen in eternal springtime—and Persephone—her restless daughter—who wanders away from the Motherland. Somewhere in No Man's Land she encounters the Eastern god, Shiva—intense and mysterious—and is immediately attracted to his exotic 'otherness.'
Persephone and Shiva hunger for connection, but Demeter, disguised as the Eastern goddess Dhumavati—the beholder of smoke—infects their meeting. They descend into the Underworld where they undergo the death of false dreams, as Persephone morphs into the Eastern goddess Kali—ruler of creation and destruction—and Shiva into Hades—king of the Underworld.
All three are finally released into their full humanity through the experience of love, and emerge from the depths transformed and transfigured.
"Love Conquers All" is this holiday season's headline, as music and adventure take to the stage. While Merchant is often considered one of Shakespeare's toughest "problem plays", Hamlet Isn't Dead continues their exploration of his entire canon with open minds and a focus on how the story reflects our modern sensibilities. With live music and an adventurous atmosphere, this is a wonderful example of the relevance of Shakespeare's works for everyone, from first-time audience members to well-worn scholars.
Merry Christmas Baby! (Just F**king Die) paints a vivid portrait into the fiction of Ian, who's life unwinds into one of unimaginable discord, hardly harmonious with the conventional customs of Christmas. An epic, enameled with dependence, deceit, dalliance, and dollars, collaged with an especially eccentric lady of the night. Ian's sole source of conscience comes from Jerry, a sincere and necessary source of relief from his constant calamity. An irate girlfriend and lingering lingerie all climax into forcing the audience to wonder why exactly Santa Claus might have shrieked out, Ho! Ho! Ho! into the cold lonely night.
Conceived and performed by legendary downtown theater maker Anna Kohler, directed by Caleb Hammond, and featuring renowned performance artist Hapi Phace, Mytho? immerses the audience in a unique sensory experience with aromas, three dimensional sound and media projection by Shaun Irons and Lauren Petty.

Set in the late 1980s, Street Children explores the repression, romantic idealism, and high cost of living within the transgender and queer community of New York City's lower Hudson piers. The play follows the intertwining journeys of three young people reeling after the murder of their beloved street mother. They must choose either the thrills and camaraderie of life as they know it or the safety and stability of a quieter existence — albeit one potentially defined by isolation and ostracism.
Specializing in provocative yet accessible theater, the Vertigo Theater Company proudly presents Street Children's world premiere. Jenna Worsham directs; the playwright is Vertigo Theater's own artistic director, Pia Scala-Zankel.
Note: for mature audiences (ages 16 and up).
