BLACK CAT

Electro-comic McQueen (Comedy Central, Funny or Die) released his chart-topping debut album, Black Cat, in the fall of 2019. A genre-defying album born of fever dreams where unforgettable characters exist and comingle with David Bowie, Kevin Costner and Harry Potter – and are sound-tracked by triptastic narratives and soundscapes – it’s Daft Punk meets Weird Al, as McQueen creates original music with beats and comedy.

Collected Stories

What are the ethical and legal rights of a writer to create art from someone else's biographical material – particularly that of another writer? Older, established writer Ruth Steiner (Judy Rosenblatt) mentors Lisa Morrison (Annemarie Hagenaars), an ambitious young graduate student in awe of Ruth. Lisa becomes her protégée, her friend, and finally, her colleague. In Collected Stories, Donald Margulies questions whether the loving relationship they build can survive ambition, rivalry, and – what may be – eventual betrayal. Directed by Austin Pendleton.

The Nightmare

When a young woman inherits an old house full of terrible memories, she begins to have terrifying experiences at night, and can't tell if they are nightmares or reality.

Seven Decades Pregnant

In this show, Melissa shares the amusing, infuriating, and jarring advice from her grandmother's 1949 prenatal care book.
