In turn-of-the-century London, artist Basil Hallward paints a portrait of Dorian Gray, an impossibly attractive young man.

When Tony-award winning playwright, David Henry Hwang, protests the casting of a white actor as the lead Asian character in the musical Miss Saigon - he becomes a poster boy for Asian American rights in the 1990s. But in a comical twist of fate, he mistakenly casts a white actor, Marcus G. Dahlman, in the lead Asian role of his own play. As he attempts to pass Marcus off as a Siberian Jew, D.H.H. is forced to question the constitutions of race, identity, and nationality in this fun mockumentary of the playwright's life.
Based on John Van Druten's 1951 play I Am a Camera, which was adapted from the short novel Goodbye to Berlin(1939) by Christopher Isherwood, this adapted version of Cabaret is set in 2079 Berlintown as a neo-Nazi party rises out of World War III. The story takes place at the seedy Kit Kat Klub, a final stop for entertainment, sin, and pleasure after the apocalypse. Revolving around the 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with the young American writer Cliff Bradshaw, the story speculates how history could repeat itself if we aren't careful enough to pay attention.
Three intrepid lady explorers embark on their greatest adventure yet: an expedition into the last uncharted jungle in the world, Terra Incognita. Little do they know they are ‘on the verge’ of a deliciously verbose, joyously feminist, and ultimately serendipitous romp through time. Armed with their pith helmets and journals, our heroines encounter treacherous obstacles, several eccentric characters, and a myriad of pop culture references. Eric Overmyer's play turns colonialist anthropology on its head; celebrating friendship, egg beaters, and "discovery" of all kinds.
