From one of musical theatre's most exciting new composers comes a refreshingly honest and funny musical about making real connections in a city that never sleeps. Ordinary Days is the captivating story of what happens when frazzled and uptight graduate student Deb loses the notebook that contains all of her notes for her thesis somewhere on the streets of New York and unwittingly starts a chain of events that turns the ordinary days of four New Yorkers into something extraordinary. Ordinary Days is an original musical by Adam Gwon with equal doses of humor and poignancy. It is for anyone who has ever struggled to appreciate the simple things in a complex place. It is a delightful reminder that we never know who we are connected to in the complex pattern of life.
The outlaw of Sherwood Forest leads a merry life with his followers, and anyone who is hungry or who has no place to live is welcome in the greenwood. The classic tale of Robin Hood comes to the stage at Peoria Center for the Performing Arts with talented youth performers who will deliver plenty of thrills, chills and fun as Robin Hood battles Prince John and woos Maid Marian.
Two Mile Hollow centers on the Donnellys - a famous, dysfunctional, Caucasian family so obsessed with their own privilege that they don't know what to make of their son's ethnically ambiguous assistant who comes to visit. Through the weekend, hilarity ensues as siblings argue over women and motorcycles, a mother creates self-loathing in her gluten-intolerant daughter and complicated and unique secrets are unveiled over white wine. With some unconventional casting, award-winning playwright Leah Nanako Winkler creates a laugh-out-loud comedy that helps us see the inherent inequities on stage and in life. The perfect parody during this national moment, when our identity as Americans is being questioned more than ever before, Two Mile Hollow can be enjoyed at the Tempe Center for the Arts.
