Legendary explorer Ernest Shackleton reaches out across time through the internet to contact a single mother in the innovative romance Ernest Shackleton Loves Me. With a book by Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change), this inventive and intimate new musical is heading for off-Broadway -- and this is your chance to see it before it departs. Multitalented singer-songwriter-electric violinist Valerie Vigoda (Toy Story: The Musical) portrays a sleep-deprived single mom who's fired from her day job as a video game composer. Inspired by her music, the famous gentleman-explorer of the South Pole overcomes the distance between them and together they embark on a love affair adventure for the ages. Learn More

This event was 8 short plays. I would highly recommend this; it was such a low price for all the hard work and good writing/performances! I was shocked by the quality of acting at such a small theater, very impressive. My favorite was The Cleaners by Lindsay Murphy, Curtis Eastwood and Carolynne Wilcox made such believable characters. I am going to keep my eye out for more of their work.
The first weekend will kick off the festival with a bang, opening with a Night of Acts & Cabaret (Thursday, Apr 19), followed by a Night of Spoken Word (Friday, Apr 20). On Saturday (Apr 21) there is a Night of Solo Performance followed by the popular, late-night 24-Hour All-Female Play Festival within a Festival! Afternoon writing and directing workshops (Sun, Apr 22) will be offered to round out the weekend, taught by Emily Conbere and Kristina Sutherland.
