Reefer Madness

Inspired by the 1936 propaganda film of the same name, this raucous musical comedy takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the hysteria caused when clean-cut kids fall prey to marijuana, leading them on a hysterical downward spiral filled with evil jazz music, sex and violence. The addictive and clever musical numbers range from big Broadway-style showstoppers to swing tunes like ‘Down at the Ol’ Five and Dime’ and the Vegas-style ‘Listen to Jesus, Jimmy,’ featuring J.C. Himself leading a chorus of showgirl angels.

Laughing & Crying

Laughing & Crying is a live art event exploring the emotional and physical cleansing released through cathartic hysteria. This piece will involve over 25 artists including opera singers, drag artists, comedians, musicians, actors, and dancers, as well as artists presenting visual work on gallery walls. With immersive sonic and video installation spaces that will take you on an intimate journey, large scale performances, and opportunities to engage and join the celebration over the course of the evening. The performance is non-linear, and allows the audience the freedom to guide themselves through the venue and experience each installation at their own pace. The variety of performance tableaux includes an Opera Battle, Tranimal Drag Queen Photo Booth, and Hysteria Outbreak. Join us with cocktails in hand as you move throughout the event!

End of the Rainbow

By Peter Quilter
Directed by Jenn BeVard

End of the Rainbow is the Tony Award nominated musical drama of Judy Garland's "come-back" concerts during Christmas 1968. With a six week booking at London's Talk of the Town, it looks like Judy Garland is set firmly on the comeback trail. The failed marriages, the suicide attempts and the addictions are all behind her. At forty-six and with new flame Mickey Deans at her side, she seems determined to carry it off and recapture her magic. But lasting happiness always eludes some people, and there was never any answer to the question with which Judy ended every show: "If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow, why, oh, why, can't I?" End of the Rainbow is a savagely funny drama featuring a glorious ensemble of Judy Garland hits and infused with the glamour and the melancholy of stardom.

@ The Lesher Center for the Arts, Walnut Creek, CA

The Last Five Years

Written and Composed by Jason Robert Brown
Directed by Jenn BeVard

"Memento meets When Harry Met Sally, but with music you can't forget." A love story mystery musical, told in two timelines — his songs tell their story forwards, while hers tell it in reverse. Touching, hilarious, and immediately relatable.

@ PianoFight, San Francisco
