The Bomb-itty of Errors is an award-winning Hip-Hop, Ad-Rap-Tation of Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors. Play meets rap concert in a boom-bap verbal free for all.  It is refreshingly current but retains the integrity of Shakespeare’s original language with four actors and a live DJ on stage. Bomb-itty was one of the originators of the format and paved the way for hit hip-hop musicals like Hamilton.

By William Shakespeare

A Scottish general receives a prophecy from three witches that changes the course of his life. Driven by ambition to become King, Macbeth will kill anyone that get in his way. Paranoia, deception and treachery consume Macbeth and his wife, as they come to terms with his prophesied fate.

-See a cartoon video synopsis of Macbeth.

Adapted by Kate Hamill from the novel by Jane Austen

A youthful and playful new adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel which was a recent hit Off-Broadway.  The play follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters—sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne—after their father’s sudden death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable. When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?

Adapted by Mary Zimmerman from Ovid

Based on Ovid's transformation myths, Metamorphoses subtly mixes the ancient stories of pathos and tragedy with contemporary language, humor, and thought. In a series of vignettes, the characters experience love and loss, and joy and pain, as they discover the inevitable consequences of their own actions.

Amir Kapoor is a successful Pakistani-American lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his cultural roots. Emily, his wife, is white; she's an artist, and her work is influenced by Islamic imagery. When the couple hosts a dinner party, what starts out as a friendly conversation escalates into something far more damaging.  Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick Tinkerbell visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and with a sprinkle of pixie dust begin a fantastical journey across the stars and to new lands that none of them will ever forget.
