Follow a group of politically active hippies as they try to make sense of their young lives in Hair, the American rock musical that provides a vivid, affectionate look at the flower children of the 1960s. The group bands together in a peace-loving tribe amidst the turmoil of the anti-Vietnam War movement while the music and culture of the era come to life on stage. Hair's unforgettable songs, like "Aquarius," "Good Morning Starshine," "Easy To Be Hard" and "The Flesh Failures" (aka "Let the Sunshine In") went on to become anthems of the anti-war movement. The unbridled energy and infectious music will give you an electrifying look back into '60s hippie counterculture. Learn More

Esme is a brilliant and famous London stage actress, facing a midlife career crisis as the theater is becoming irrelevent. Her daughter, Amy, is in love with Dominic, who cares more about film and fame. Financial pressures and the changing landscape of the arts and media threaten to tear mother and daughter apart.
Spanning 18 years, from 1979 to 1997, this sharply funny, smart and timely play rips into the struggles and triumphs of mothers and daughters, financial crises, and the fight to keep art alive.
Amy’s View features Angela DiMarco (__reasons to be pretty) as Amy and Julie Jamieson (Dead Man’s Cell Phone__) as Esme. Director Christopher Zinovitch has this to say about Amy’s View: “It’s about the importance of passion in your life. Esme’s passion is the theater; Amy’s is love and having an open heart; Dominic is passionate about fame and being seen. And getting all that passion into one room, forces the truth to come out in surprising ways.” __
Amy’s View __also features Robert Hinds, MaryLou Mills, Paul Custodio and Ryan Floresca.
