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

The Whipping Man was profoundly memorable evoking layers of deep emotions for me. There were so many issues being dealt with in this play to ponder that I plan on seeing it again. Absolutely amazingly crafted by everyone at Taproot. The performances by the three actors were so mesmerizing; especially Simon. Bravo!

Can loyalty and freedom coexist? A Jewish Confederate soldier returns from war to his house in shambles. Two former slaves greet him, one who stayed and one who is returning. As they observe Passover and remember the Jewish exodus from Egypt, their shared pasts and secrets threaten the freedom of all three men.
This play is set within the reality of wartime suffering. It contains profane language and vivid descriptions of war and slavery. Recommended for ages 16 and over.
