Sure, war is hell, but when author Kurt Vonnegut is telling the tale, it can be hellishly funny, too. Perhaps the greatest American humorist since Twain, Vonnegut (Cat's Cradle, Breakfast of Champions) is at his absolutely best in Slaughterhouse-Five, recounting the horrors of World War II with sly wit, sci-fi zaniness and the profound insight of a survivor and veteran. Now the Custom Made Theatre Co. brings this modern literary masterpiece to the stage with a brilliant adaptation by Oscar winner Eric Simonson. An ensemble of 11 actors plays dozens of characters in a production enriched with Vonnegut-inspired animations and an evocative set. Deeply hilarious from the get-go -- and increasingly moving as the story progresses -- Slaughterhouse-Five is one play you won't soon forget. Learn More

Written by a graduate student who had to cope with several family losses, this play successfully mixed dialogue and dance. I liked the treatment of the play's namesake, the "Man Eater" character, at different stages of her life. Almost everyone in the audience stayed for the talk-back session afterward, a testament to our level of interest in the play. Some people mentioned being repeat attendees.
Custom Made Theatre Company is proud to announce our first Workshop Series production of the season, featuring the work of Associate Artistic Director, Daunielle Rasmussen, and a cast of fourteen actors and dancers. In this provocative piece, dance is used in a symbiotic relationship with the text to tell the story of four people who are coping-or not coping- with loss in their own ways.
Rose is used to getting what she wants and this time its restaurant manager Nate Sanchez. Emotionally estranged from his grief stricken wife, Nate is susceptible prey and embarks on a tumultuous journey through the wilderness of grief where he discovers that he is not the only one lost. Unbeknownst to Rose, her latest conquest will cause her to relive a painful secret she thought long forgotten.
The performance features Sarah Moser, Partick Barresi, Stefin Collins, Luisa Frasconi, Jesse Bie, Kyle Griffiths, Margarita Galindo, Danielle Doyle, Jessica Rudholm, Adrienne Walters, Teri Whipple, Xanadu Bruggers, Vincent P. Rodriguez.
Immediately following the show will be a feedback discussion to support the further growth of this work in progress.
