Spoken word, hip hop and a little live ragtime music propel this world-premiere one-man show on the life and times of composer Scott Joplin, starring writer-performer Robert Barry Fleming. Awarded a posthumous Pulitzer Prize in 1976 for "his contributions to American music," Joplin and his signature piano pieces like "The Maple Leaf Rag" and "The Entertainer" became huge hits at the turn of the 20th century, and then were revived again in the 1970s through an album collection and the soundtrack to the hit movie The Sting. Fleming explores Joplin's music, as well as his contemporary and historical influences, in this new solo musical event. Learn More

A fun one man show full of pop culture references and hilarious dialogue (with unseen and unheard characters). The show is about a young man struggling to reconcile his real-life as an underappreciated tech guy with his fantasy-life as leader of an online army of computer nerds. At the end of the show, the actor engages with the audience about the development of his show and about the dichotomy of the modern world between our human selves and our online personas. It was a very enjoyable and thought-provoking afternoon.

It’s the most important day of “computer-gaming-geek” Steve Smolinski’s life. He’s about to save humanity from destruction at the hands of bloodthirsty elves … which would be a lot easier if he didn’t have to do it from his cubicle at work. In a tour-de-force one-man show, GAM3RS captures the chaos that ensues when one’s virtual world and real life collide. Written and performed by USD/Globe grad, Brian Bielawski and co-directed by Walter G. Meyer, GAM3RS premiered to critical praise at the New York Fringe Festival.
