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

An aspiring teen journalist, an awkward wannabe popstar, and the openly gay new kid in town all have secrets. But when their squeaky clean small-town high school refuses to acknowledge the messy parts of being a teenager, this ragtag bunch of misfits starts an after school Speech and Debate team to expose a possible scandal—and sparks more debate than their high school ever bargained for. Tackling issues of politics, homosexuality, and self-expression, young playwright Stephen Karam has written a completely modern, hilarious and heartbreaking look at the struggles of being a teen today.
