Grand and uplifting, Les Misérables is a powerful affirmation of the human spirit and one of the most popular musicals of all time. Woodminster Amphitheater hosts an outdoor production of this tale of passion and revolution in 19th-century France, which won seven Tony Awards on Broadway and was made into an Oscar-nominated film. Cozy up under a blanket and watch ex-convict Jean Valjean's struggle for redemption and the young, innocent love of his adopted daughter Cosette and the student Marius are set against the tumultuous backdrop of the French Revolution. It's a celebration of the human struggle for love, justice and happiness in the face of hardship, carried forward on a gorgeous score, including the beloved songs "I Dreamed a Dream," "On My Own," "One day More," "Do You Hear the People Sing?" and more.

This show is more than delightful as it is insightful as well. The performer takes on multiple distinct personae as he weaves a tale of right wing fundamentalism run amuck. If you have a liberal funny bone this show is for you. I loved it.

In Jurassic Ark, Brother Dallas has a made-for-TV ministry and one majestic mission: He’s hell-bent on making a big-budget blockbuster showing that Creationism is Truth! That man and dinosaurs once lived side-by-side! But sins from the preacher’s past (now 17 million views and counting) and Satan himself threaten his holy vision. Not to mention Hollywood – where studio hotshots have their own twisted take on bringing in a big box office.
Busting with its own special effects of whirlwind physicality and a compelling soundtrack, Jurassic Ark is written and performed by David Caggiano, who has performed at The Marsh, StageWerx’s Solo Sundays, CounterPULSE’s WordsFirst, Berkeley’s Tell It On Tuesday and, of course, EXIT Theatre.
_Jurassic Ark _is directed by solo specialist Mark Kenward, who has created, performed, developed and directed nearly two dozen one-person shows, including his own acclaimed adaptation of Moby Dick.
