Tabard Theatre Company kicks off its 14th season with this intimate revue that uses timeless songs from early musicals to explore the excitement of young love and the confusion of growing up (or is it the other way around?). Hailed for possessing "[m]ore lilting originality and heart-felt emotion than any big Broadway musical" (The Washington Star), this bold, crowd-pleasing show takes a winsome cast of three through the maze of modern relationships. From tender ballads to hysterical husband-hunting laments, from wry comments on trendy marriages to shouting-from-the-rooftop celebration, Starting Here, Starting Now is a love letter to early Broadway from Maltby & Shire, one of the most respected teams in contemporary musical theatre.

Presented by Contemporary Asian Theater Scene and Asian American Theater Companyl, TeleMongol uses the sketches to tell the story of AHOLE-TV (Asia Home of Language Entertainment), a fictional cable network with a mission to create programming by and for the Asian Pacific American community.
The show takes a satirical look at both the behind-the-scenes politicking at the station and the programs chosen to air. Skewering everything from the issues faced by ethnic media to well-known icons like American Idol reject William Hung and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il, TeleMongol promises to be an irreverent look at contemporary Asian American pop culture.
