Ugly Betty meets The Terminator in this new sci-fi musical by D'Arcy Drollinger (Shit & Champagne, Project: Lohan). When lonely, put-upon secretary Eileen spots an ad for a fully functioning mechanical male companion, she takes her future by the reigns and places an order. Mr. Irresistible soon arrives on her doorstep and, true to fantasy, a romance blossoms. Just one problem: He's not her mail-order groom. He's an exterminator on a service call. Soon the official Acme Brand Mr. Irresistible comes knocking, and the humble exterminator can't compete with the custom-made dream man. But just as Eileen is settling into a state of bliss with her new perfect beau, a coworker she's been complaining about turns up dead, and Eileen becomes suspicious of her robotic Romeo. She contemplates sending him back -- where he'll be disassembled for parts -- but Mr. Irresistible catches on and begins a fight for his life. Will Eileen finally find her voice and learn where true love has been all along? Learn More

The long-running hit, Absolutely San Francisco, is a fun and poignant one-woman musical allegory about the San Franicsco take on the American Dream. Get on an imaginary cable car with Sunshine - a free-spirited daughter of the 60s - on her quest to find a powerful person to help her fight City Hall - and the meter maids threatening to impound her shopping cart. The insightful, whimsical book and lyrics by Anne Nygren Doherty turn the city’s stereotypes inside out and reveal the heart and soul of a city where the atypical is typical – where hippies, drifters and dreamers rub elbows with striving immigrants and the top 1% of the “1%.” Sitting in the cozy, Alcove Theater, the audience comes away moved by the hidden bonds that tie these seemingly disparate people together. **
