Synopsis

Weaving together music from lesser-known Offenbach operettas and much of the music he had intended for a work for America, this opera tells the story of polygamist Columbus, who accidentally becomes involved in an expedition to America, funded by the loaned jewels of Queen Isabella of Spain. Accompanied by his three ex-wives, Columbus proves to be susceptible to sea-sickness, and is eventually cast adrift. On arrival in the New World, however, the crew discover that Columbus has already arrived, married an Indian Princess, and discovered the cola nut.

Civil War Christmas: An American Musical Celebration Drama View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

It's 1864, and Washington, D.C. is settling down to the coldest Christmas Eve in years. In the White House, President and Mrs. Lincoln plot their gift-giving. On the banks of the Potomac, a young rebel challenges a Union blacksmith's mercy. In the alleys downtown, an escaped slave loses her daughter just before finding freedom. This musical by Pulitzer Prize–winner Paula Vogel intertwines many lives, showing us that the gladness of one's heart is the best gift of all.

"Ms. Vogel manages to humanize most of her many characters in a few crisp strokes of dialogue, so they come across as full-blooded people, glimpsed clearly if quickly, rather than talking statues in a historical diorama." —NY Times. "Artfully weaves historic details into the play [and] pulls it together with economical writing that reflects the poetry of the day." —Variety. "Deep-rooted and ambitious…a fascinating interface of history and fiction…boldly inventive theater, warm and affecting." —Talkin' Broadway.

Short
Synopsis

CONVENIENCE is a sung-through musical about family, the ties that bind and the ones we struggle to break. A single mom and her estranged twenty-six-year-old son have news for each other, but neither can find the words nor the courage. Liz can't tell her son, Vince, that she's remarrying and moving away; Vince is afraid of how Liz will react when he tells her about his boyfriend. During one funny, awkward, touching week, they come to realize what so many families discover: The things they feared would tear them apart end up bringing them closer together. A mother and son learn from their broken past and the promise of a different future that they can walk through a doorway without slamming it shut forever.

"The score is quick, complex, and extremely catchy…melodic, highly theatrical, and praiseworthy. Coffin's book effectively mixes humor and tension, and is witty and sincere." —Talkin' Broadway. "Like the rest of the cheering, laughing, crying audience, I was much involved in this affecting, life-affirming experience." —City (Rochester, NY). "Theatre entertains, that much is given. But great theatre teaches as it entertains. CONVENIENCE is great theatre." —WHAM/WHTK Radio.

Cowgirls Comedy/Satire View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

Jo is in a pickle: She has twenty-four hours to save Hiram Hall—her father's once-famous country-western saloon in Rexford, Kansas—from foreclosure. Although the place has seen better days, Jo is determined to keep it open. But what will pack in a crowd to make the money she needs? Mickey, Jo's hard-livin', wise-crackin' waitress has been dyin' to get up on that stage and prove she's got what it takes to make it as a country singer, and Mo, Jo's cook/cashier, is right behind her. But Jo has other plans: She's booked the Cowgirl Trio, sure it will save the place. The problem is there is no Cowgirl Trio. A minor misunderstanding on the telephone brings to Rexford the Coghill Trio: Rita, Lee and Mary Lou, classical musicians currently on a reunion tour. Jo isn't looking for classical music but the Coghill Trio show up for a legitimate booking. These six women surely mix like oil and water: Jo could have had a brilliant career as a country singer herself, but gave up her dream to run her daddy's business; Mickey feels she must have this chance to perform or all her dreams will slip through her fingers; Mo can't bear to think that Jo might lose the place and will do anything to help her keep it; Rita planned the current tour of the trio because she and her husband are about to have their first child and she's not sure she'll ever perform again; Lee, always searching, has begun to feel like she's never going to find what she's looking for and feels they should give Hiram Hall a chance; Mary Lou, just about to bust from following rules all her life, can't stand that Hiram Hall is not a real booking and sees her career as doomed. Fate must have brought these women together and they side out—it's classical versus country. Can they meet in the middle? Sure thing, and when Jo proudly presents to the public the Cowgirl Trio, you can bet your bottom dollar that it raises the roof and Jo saves her bar!

If "practice" is the way to get to Carnegie Hall, how could one possibly end up at Hiram Hall, a country music palace, in Rexford, Kansas? "A joyous slapstick hoe-down! COWGIRLS wrings every drop of moonshine humor from its crossbreeding of classical and country." —NY Times. "An unplugged gem of a musical, COWGIRLS is a fun, honky-tonk romp." —NY Newsday. "Fun! Sassy! Knee-slapping spirit as warm as a heated mobile home." —NY Daily News. "Simply sensational, brilliantly performed. It should run until the cows come home." —NY Post.
