Composer Art Kaufman actually owns a song-poem recording business, where amateur wordsmiths can send in their poetry and have it set to music -- for a fee of course. For Song-Poems Wanted! The Musical he used lyrics from real-life customers to create an unforgettable journey through the hopes, dreams, lonesome ramblings and twisted rants of a group of aspiring poets and musicians whose lives are connected by the fictitious song-poem recording company Star Records. The unforgettable cast of characters ranges from sleazy Star Records owner Sharkey, who "grinds out songs like sausages," to Captain Bicycle, a zany nerd who dreams of fixing the planet through the power of Jesus Christ, big-breasted women, and good old-fashioned rock 'n' roll.

Written entirely in poetry, spoken word, verse and music, this is a play about a young woman who comes home after many years to visit her parents. She finds herself alone, and decides to take a trip Down the Rabbit Hole into her old bedroom. Here she discovers her childhood dress-up clothes, her old books, and her youthful obsession with Fairy Tales. Now, a somewhat jaded, successful writer living in NYC, she discovers that her naive illusions of “prince charming” and “happily ever after” have changed. The reality of life is much more difficult than the stories of her youth once led her to believe. She dives into her old fairy tales and this time takes a modern day look into what these characters really are all about.
You will meet the newly redefined Cinderella who comes clean on what life is really like living with “The Prince”.
-Goldilocks, who finds herself in quite an unusual predicament, reveals her deep dark secret.
-Snow White’s Evil Stepmother, who for the first time, tells her side of the story and is faced with news that will change her life.
-Belle (from Beauty in the Beast) who is now a school teacher by day, and a pole dancer by night.
- And of course, you will meet ALICE- Wonderland is not so innocent after all, as she shares the night that led her into womanhood!
