Bri Molly as Chet Cheshire


“One of the most wildly ambitious, inspired theatrical endeavors I’ve seen on an Off Off Broadway stage. Bursting with an excess of ideas and passion”

  • Gay City News






Kayleigh Shuler and Matias Polar as Jane and John Allison


“Director Lissa Moira, choreographer J. Alan Hanna, and the large cast do an amazing job keeping everything rolling along in this theatrical equivalent of a three-ring circus.”

  • Talkin’ Broadway



John and Jane with Dean Kitteridge (Brian Michael Henry) and Roberta White (Bevin Bell-Hall)



At the Automat


“The score is an appealing mix of period jazz, swing, cabaret, Tin Pan Alley, and operetta. The lyrics, melodies, and orchestrations are surprisingly rich and sophisticated.”

Rita McCann, Allie Radice, Cody Keown, Bevin Bell-Hall, Zachary Martin, Amanda Thomas, Kristen Quinn


Julian Carnation (Tim Connell) surrounded by the Florists (Sylvester McCracken III, Torian Brackett, Cody Keown)


Ambitious, intriguing tale of queer life during the Roaring 20s.”

  • Talkin’ Broadway



“Dry Out the Nation”



Caroline Crysalides (Darcy Dunn)


“An offbeat, mind-blowing fantasia on identity, taboo romance, and queer culture circa 1930.”

  • Gay City News



The Tweedle Sisters (Allie Radice and Anne Bragg with Matias Polar)



“Need some of these?”




“No less compelling is the attention to historical detail. Dialogue is meticulously sprinkled with colorful period queer slang, like “dropping pins” (hinting about one’s homosexuality), “Vaseline Alley” (the Southeast corner of Central Park where the fairies gathered), “basketeering” (ogling a guy’s crotch), and “browning” (I’ll let you figure that one out).”

  • Gay City News



Dan Kelley, Larry Johnson, Camille Atkinson, Bevin Bell-Hall, Kayleigh Shuler, Zachary Harris Martin





“A dizzying, confounding epic fever dream ….”

“… Hatched from the fertile, fervid mind of Danny Ashkenasi”
