Set in the French Antilles, this one-act musical from the creators of Ragtime and Seussical combines elements of both Romeo and Juliet and The Little Mermaid. The result is an exhilarating calypso-tinged story filled with infectious rhythms, rousing dance and exuberant theatricality. The Tony-nominated hit chronicles the fairy-tale love of a young peasant girl for a handsome young aristocrat -- a love that leads her to save him from death. As the gods debate the star-crossed lovers' fate, the islanders gather to sing and celebrate the hope of the human spirit. Learn More

Jewtopia, written by Bryan Fogel and Sam Wolfson, tells the story of two 30 year old single men, Chris O’Connell and Adam Lipschitz. Chris, a gentile, wants to marry a Jewish girl so he’ll never have to make another decision. Adam Lipschitz, a Jew, wants to marry a Jewish girl to please his family, but can’t get a date to save his life. After meeting at a Jewish singles mixer, Adam and Chris form a secret pact. Chris promises that he will help Adam find the Jewish girl of his dreams and show him “Jewtopia”, but only if Adam will help Chris shed his gentile-ness and bring him undercover into the Jewish world. Stereotypes collide, cultures clash and chaos ensues!
