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

Appropriate for ages 10+. Some swearing, but nothing you haven’t heard on TV.
A slick comedy where High Concept meets the down-and-dirty of the entertainment business when Jake, a grossly overpaid Action Movie star, decides to turn an undiscovered Franz Kafka play into Broadway hit. Things begin to implode when Harry, an embittered and idealistic understudy, arrives for rehearsal and discovers the stage manager is his ex-fiancée.
