Uncle Vanya adapted by Kimberly Pau

"As I began preparing to present the two plays in rep, I saw an opportunity to display their strong thematic similarities in a new way. Both plays showcase characters experiencing longing for love at different times in their lives. In Uncle Vanya, they are looking back saying, 'How did I get here?' In Romeo and Juliet, they are looking forward saying, 'How can I get there?' By watching these epic classics side-by-side in the same sitting, the audience can follow the doubling actors on a journey through a landscape where both worlds intersect, revealing the characters' varying experiences of love, loss, and longing at various milestones in their lives." - Eric Tucker, Director

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream

Aquila Theatre Company

April 5 - 7, 2019

Directed by Desiree Sanchez

FRANKENSTEIN: Mary Shelley's Frankenstein has haunted our collective imagination for 200 years. First published in 1818, her novel is considered the first true science fiction novel, a classic that explores science's potential in opposition to its consequences. Victor Frankenstein creates life and, dealing with the repercussions of his actions, he must destroy his own creation. Aquila Theatre's production of this timeless piece creates a bold and thrilling homage to Shelley's original novel.

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM: One of Shakespeare's most beloved and witty comedies is brought to vivid life in this innovative new production. Full of memorable characters--Puck, Oberon, Hippolyta, and Nick Bottom--and the famous "play within a play," the play deals with the universal theme of love, and its attendant complications: passion, lust, frustration, depression, confusion, and, of course, marriage. Aquila Theatre weaves a web of theatrical magic that will take audiences to the heart of an enchanted forest, the injustice of the Athenian court, and the political strife of the fairy kingdom.

(A)loft Modulation

the american vicarious

September 26 - October 26, 2019

Written by Jaymes Jorsling
Directed by Christopher McElroen

It’s the last explosive heyday of jazz and the inhabitants of a seedy Manhattan loft jam night after night, while a compulsive photographer documents everything with round-the-clock reel-to-reel recordings and photographs.

(A)loft Modulation traces the turbulent, roiling obsessions of this group of musicians—a who’s who of jazz from 1957 to 1965—and their pursuit of purpose, while social chaos seeks to overthrow American culture. It’s angst vs. contentment, selfishness vs. benevolence, artist vs. layman—a struggle that plays out through the fractured lens of unlabeled reel-to-reel tapes which are stumbled upon 60-years after they were recorded.

Featuring a live jazz band that improvises nightly, (A)loft Modulation harnesses the power of these rare and precious sound and video recordings, taking the audience on a thrilling and emotional tour of this watershed moment in jazz history.

Almost, Maine

EPIC Players

December 4-12, 2021

Written by John Cariani
Directed by Travis Burbee

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night's dream.

EPIC is excited to bring to life ALMOST, MAINE, by John Cariani; a show about hope, love, and connection. Something we are all seeking as we look into the future.

Brecht on Brecht

Theatre Breaking Through Barriers

October 19-November 20, 2021

Written by Bertold Brecht and arranged by George Tabori
Directed by Nicholas Viselli
Musical Director Dionne McClain-Freeney

Brecht on Brecht celebrates one of the 20th century’s greatest and most prolific playwrights with a stunning, kaleidoscopic, 90-minute revue of his life’s work. Featuring poems, stories & scenes by Brecht and songs by Kurt Weill & Hans Eisler Brecht on Brecht explores the political and social issues he faced throughout his life, as an artist fleeing the Nazi Regime and as an exile, ultimately landing in America. Originally produced by TBTB just months after 9/11, Brecht On Brecht hauntingly mirrored our feelings during that time in the world. 20 years later, Brecht’s words once again resound with pitch-perfect clarity, echoing all we are experiencing in our world today – and offering guidance and hope for these uncertain times.

When the   laundromat's basement turns out to be an illegal cockfighting ring,   the cousins can't tell if this is an opportunity to cash out and   become their most fabulous selves—or a trap to keep them locked   into what everyone expects them to be.

Directed by Jenn Susi

Hyacinth is dead. Well, no, not yet; he's lost in the Nether Place. But what happened? Who killed him? Wait, did someone kill him? And where's Apollo? That's all Hyacinth can remember at first: that his life truly began the night he locked eyes with the great god Apollo...

DISCUS boldly reimagines the often-overlooked queer love story of Apollo and Hyacinth: a heartbreaking and candid play that challenges us with its powerfully relevant themes of class, power, justice, accountability, and above all: change. Can love inspire a person (or a god) to change for the better?

Mag, a nonbinary twentysomething, returns to their childhood home in a small conservative Ohio town. Everything is dull and weird and not queer at all.

Mag's life gets more interesting (and sexy) when they meet The Creature and learn about the algae taking over the town's water supply. Will Mag save the city, or is it the algae's time to shine?

Bloom Bloom Pow is inspired by 1950s monster movies and the real-life 2014 crisis in Toledo, Ohio, when the tap water became deadly for humans because of toxic algal blooms.

music and lyrics by Dionne McClain-Freeney

As six high-achieving debutantes interrupt their preparations to peek into the shimmering ballroom, The Harriet Holland Social Club’s esteemed Madam President does her damnedest to ensure it all goes well. She needs no stumbles tonight. No teary-eyed smudges, no unraveling lace, no unraveling ANYTHING. Because if she can’t control these girls, whatever will they think over at Table 4?

Experienced in real time as a Black debutante ball in a large American city today—and featuring an all-Black-women company and creative team, down to its three-piece band—The Cotillion interrogates the complexities of Black debutante ball culture and finds that beneath all the respectability politics and sweet serenades lie contradictions even quality make-up can’t cover up. It puts us all in our evening shoes—those fancy ones that start to pinch as the night wears on­—to consider how we choose to uplift young Black women in a world that seeks to diminish them.
