Attic Theatre Altar Boyz

The Boyz are five all-singing, all-dancing heartthrobs from Ohio — Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan, and Abraham. With their tight harmonies and spectacular choreography, the Altar Boyz will delight as they perform their signature hits such as "Rhythm In Me," "The Calling," and "I Believe," all the while trying to reduce the number of burdened souls in the theatre to zero by the end of the concert.
   
B. Franklin  
Stephanie Feury Studio (SFS) Theatre B. Franklin
 
Scientist. Inventor. Politician. Diplomat. Statesman. Writer. Wit. Rebel. Hero of the American Revolution. Founding Father. Ladies Man. Family man. Benjamin Franklin (1706- 1790) accomplished more in his 84 years than most men could in several lifetimes. In his new theatre piece “B. Franklin,” writer-performer Robert Lesko brings this fascinating individual vividly to life. We join Franklin at his home on Market Street in Philadelphia. He relives for us his many triumphs, including his diplomatic success in the French court, his romantic conquests, his contributions to establishing the new nation called the United States of America; and also his sorrows, among them his greatest heartbreak: estrangement from his sole surviving son.

There’s Rufus, a Kentucky war orphan recruited after his home has been burned to the ground; Jackson, bound into service by his parents; and George Washington, a runaway slave who got lost on the path of the Underground Railroad. Drummer boys are important, as they are pivotal to the conduct of a skirmish. But the three lads are nonetheless youths, thrown into the heat of the bloodiest conflict ever conducted on American soil. Can they possibly survive the hell that is war? And if they survive, will they remain whole? Battledrum embraces an important segment of American history, a traumatic chapter when courage, brotherhood and patriotism could keep you alive.

Bulgakov/Moliere  
City Garage Theatre Bulgakov/Moliere
 
Over the course of a mysterious, hallucinatory night, the Devil and his entourage pay a midnight visit to Russian author Mikhail Bulgakov, whose recent work Moliére has just been shut down by the authorities. By magic, these characters, having escaped from Bulgakov's novel The Master and Margarita, transform themselves and perform the play, transposing the playwright's 1930s attack on censorship and hypocrisy in Stalin's Soviet Union to the America of today: a government paralyzed by vicious partisanship and a society obsessed with celebrity. Is the Artist a revolutionary and provocateur or does the machinery of mass culture co-opt every act, even the act of subversion itself?"
