A Los Angeles Times critic pick, Jamaica, Farewell returns to New York's SoHo Playhouse. Debra Ehrhardt's solo show is based on a mostly true story about her journey to the USA from Jamaica in the turbulent 1970s of the Manley Era. When Ehrhardt was an 18-year-old secretary in Kingston, Jamaica, she and her passion for America bumped into a handsome CIA agent over a bowl of oxtail soup. She decides to squeeze through the pinhole of opportunity with the help of this love-struck American. Her way out of Jamaica is blocked by many obstacles: an alcoholic father, a bible-spouting mother, the price of an air ticket, and U.S. government suspicions. Nevertheless, she begins a dangerous adventure that only the single-minded passion of a teenage girl would chance. The boundary between bravery and foolishness becomes blurred as she becomes more desperate. When she agrees to smuggle a million dollars in cash to a mysterious contact somewhere in Miami, the agent becomes her unwitting accomplice. Every part is played by NAACP award winner Ehrhardt, an actress capable of amazing mimicry. This one-woman caper's got generous dollops of humor, laughter and light. Jamaica, Farewell has been optioned for film by a major Hollywood producer. Learn More

“Incredibly inventive and uproarious … one of the most intelligent parodies of a musical since Urinetown.” —Broadwayworld
“Flat-out ingenious.” —The New York Times
A raucous new musical that combines singing, sex, and Velociraptors in ways hitherto unimagined, Triassic Parq follows a group of cloned dinosaurs as they unearth the very foundations of their existence. Morality, faith, science, gender identity, and interspecies fornication are all explored, and sung about, as Morgan Freeman narrates this epic tale of love, loss, and resurrected reptiles.
The show contains adult themes and may not be suitable for those under the age of 15.
