A Dream Music Puppetry Program Co-Presentation
July 10-28 | Tickets $10-$50 Tickets
Bill’s 44th is a full-length wordless puppet show for grown-ups created by Dorothy James & Andy Manjuck. The streamers are hung, the punch has been poured, and the cake is just begging to be eaten! Our anxious host Bill has planned his party to the last detail—now all that remains is for his guests to arrive. Desperate to fill his apartment with camaraderie and celebration, Bill’s imagination runs wild. Many styles of puppetry, raucous balloons, and a cheeky piece of crudité all collide to examine the pitfalls of impatience, the wonder of loneliness, and the universal passage of time.

Myrrha, a grad student in the classics, grapples with the fifty sexual assaults in Ovid's Metamorphoses. When her professor dismisses her, Myrrha is overcome by a larger force and pushes him—triggering a magical and terrifying transformation that shatters them both. Tour-de-force actor Sarah Baskin plays Myrrha, her professor, and everyone in between in a show that is one part Ovid and one part Freaky Friday.

Cursed is a brand new jazz play written by Italian playwright Argia Coppola, based on the novel Blonde by Joyce Carol Oates, starring Annie Hägg and her band, The High Kicks. In Cursed, Annie portrays the triptych of the iconic Marilyn Monroe, her alter ego Norma Jeane Baker and her mother Gladys. The story also explores her absent father and the men in Monroe's life through music and text. Cursed is a bold, breathless, tragic and timely play for an actress and a four-man jazz band, in which music becomes a character in and of itself. It’s a unique, fast-paced piece that depicts the life of the Blond Actress as never seen before.
