Xanadu: The Broadway Musical

By Book by Douglas Carter Bean; Music & Lyrics by Jeff Lynne and John Farrar

Directed by Steve Noll

Xanadu ran for two years on Broadway in 2007. The original script, spoofing the 1980 hit cult movie, features all the songs from the movie plus some new surprises to tell the tale of a goddess sent to Earth to inspire an artist's dreams. Featuring a live band, roller skates, a disco ball and a huge cast belting out classic tunes, Xanadu promises to be 90 minutes of campy FUN! The score retains hits from the film, plus new arrangements of “I’m Alive,” “Magic,” “Suddenly,” and “Dancin’,” as well as interpolating classic ELO songs.

5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche

By Evan Linder and Andrew Hobgood

Directed by Jan Levine Thal and produced by Deborah Hamill and Louise Stout

5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche is a comedy with a twist and  a “frolicsome little play that ventures into heady excesses of absurdism” (NY Times). A dark comedy set in 1956 amid the threat of nuclear war, this play harpoons many of the mid-century myths and assumptions that pushed lesbians into the closet – or into the kitchen to bake quiche. Both men and women are invited to join the antics of the “widows” who worship the Egg in their Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein.

The talented cast includes: Stacey Garbarski, Simone LaPierre, Pushy Muldowney,  Emily Popp, Caitlin Robb and  Clarice Lafayette. They will be joined for Talkbacks led by Dramaturg James Clayton, Linda Lenzke, Director Jan Levine Thal, Donna Peckett,  and others after some of the performances.
