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 play was five star. The simple, intimate setting of the small theatre was perfect for the story. The props were minimal. The message of the play was humorously and poignantly delivered, and the message was powerful: communication with our fellow humans is a subtle and complex matter, and demands our mindful attention; we humans are very resilient and capable of shifting our point of view, with wondrous rewards ensuing. A minimalist production delivered a minimalist and potent message: be kind, patient and perceptive, 'walk in another's shoes', in order to truly connect with your fellow humans.
When Tarak, a Bengali expatriate, and Karen, an American, decide to get married, they know they’re in for some cultural difficulties. But when Tarak buys them a brownstone and asks permission to move his mother into the basement apartment, Karen knows she’s getting more than she bargained for. Presented by ReAct Theatre, Pratidhwani and The Central Heating Lab at ACT, this comedy explores the challenges and joys of coming together in love – for us as individuals, and our families.
