Life Plan  
Studio Stage Life Plan
 
In Life Plan, it is 2068 and the world (unsurprisingly) has gone to shit. America lies in ruins following Civil War II, and climate change has made a large swath of the Earth uninhabitable. For the mass of people facing uncertain and dangerous futures, Life Plan offers a solution: Join Life Plan and live your dream life in your real life! Life Plan is immersive satirical sci-fi—the audience is live at a timeshare sales pitch from our dystopian future. Over the course of the show, the audience learns about Life Plan, its tech guru founder, and meets people living their dream on the platform right now. But things are not exactly what they seem, and the audience must reckon with what Life Plan is truly offering them.

Born on the Mason-Dixon line, growing up between the Reagan and Clinton administrations, exploring his own sexuality in a time well before anyone knew what #toxicmasculinity even was, and discovering his identity as a first generation Asian-American immigrant, songwriter/actor/writer Michael de Lara discovered a single, undeniable truth: “I don’t fit in with anybody.” What other possibilities for life and living show up when one truly realizes that all his definitions, communities, and prideful delineations are completely contrived? Living Between the Lines is a one-man musical/cabaret about never fitting into any group, scored and performed on a loop pedal and guitar, and told through four days in the 1990s.

The Mayor's Debate Of Tranquility, Nebraska  
The Complex The Mayor's Debate Of Tranquility, Nebraska
 
It’s almost election day in bucolic Tranquilty, Neb. (Pop: 16,434), and the Mayor’s race is going to be a barn burner. Watch the final three candidates face off in the final debate before the votes are cast. The carefully curated civility of small town politics gets tested as Maya Berenger, Scott Jensen and Lindsey Suarez throw down over property taxes, the downtown parking meters and building that soccer field on the north side of town. The bromides and platitudes, however, mask a secret terror that has gripped Tranquility and prevents them from even discussing what happened to the previous Mayor. “The Mayor’s Debate of Tranquility, Nebraska” is a dark, comic satire that strips the polish off of democracy and reveals a horror that prevents the town from even asking: What the F*** is happening at the gazebo in the town square?

Following critically acclaimed, sold out runs, first in 2018 and again earlier this year, writer/performer Barra Grant returns once more with her darkly hilarious mother-daughter story: the true, inside tale of Grant’s seismic relationship with her mother, Bess Myerson. A beauty queen best known as the first and only Jewish Miss America, Myerson was an accomplished pianist, television personality, New York City’s first Commissioner of Consumer Affairs, a close advisor to Mayor Ed Koch, and a national spokesperson against anti-Semitism. Then, she infamously went down in flames — with her Mafia boyfriend! — in a judge-bribing scandal known as the “Bess Mess.” If you missed Grant’s fascinating tale about being a confused ugly duckling growing up in the shadow of her spectacular mother, here’s your chance.
