  • Directed by John Bellomo

Antigone believes that the highest priority, over the laws of country and the commandments of men, is one must do what is right. One girl, thousands of years ago, dared to stand up for her beliefs and face the consequences, begging us to ask, “What do I believe in? What would I sacrifice for my beliefs?” Anne Carson, a T.S. Eliot Prize-winning poet, gives us a fresh, contemporary adaptation of Sophocles' tragedy.

By Sophocles, Translated by Anne Carson

When My Fair Lady first premiered in 1956, it set new records for the longest running show on Broadway. More than 50 years later, Eliza Doolittle’s journey from selling flowers on streets of Edwardian London to dancing with a prince at an Embassy Ball continues to intrigue and delight. Based on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, My Fair Lady looks at how classism and sexism can manifest in how we speak.

Adaptation & Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner, Music by Frederick Loewe. My Fair Lady is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI, 423 West 55th Street, New York, NY 10019, Tel: (212) 541-4684, Fax: (212) 397-4684, www.MTIShows.com

High school chemistry genius Diskit needs some friends who aren't her dad. High school burnout Riley needs a new screamer for her metal band. The Zombie Fuel Energy Drink Wreak Ruckus Battle of the Bands could transform them both from high school losers into rock gods. But will that be enough to get them out of Tucker, Georgia? This provocative new work is playwright Emma Goidel's scream rock fantasia about searching for big-time glory in a small-time town

By Emma Goidel
