Under the Overture. Why did the great composer Rossini (The Barber of Seville) quite the stage at the height of his career? The extravagant antics depicted in this “operatic stunt” presumably are the reasons why. A bravura vehicle for comic actors who sing operatically, Under the Overture is a fast and furious backstage farce that builds to an all-singing musical finale. It’s the play that becomes an opera!  Website

Poor Players. A fantastical black comedy in which five actors compete for the role of Macbeth at a rather curious audition. Reveling in all that is eerie about the cursed Scottish play, Poor Players traffics in the tropes of supernatural horror to tell a very human cautionary tale on the hazards of magical thinking.
