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

Music by John Geist
After a devastating death, can a once-happy family find its way past mutual blame?
Travel through the delights and occasional mishaps of a child’s worldview, tumble into a young adult’s view of her family falling apart and finally land in the world of the grounded woman of today. Her deep understanding of her mother’s love and her own love as a mother embraces her very approach to life, encapsulated like her beloved chrysalis and its emerging butterfly. The resulting pilgimage of self-understanding and acceptance takes the audience on a journey of laughter, music and poignant reflection.
