Completeness - How does a computer scientist hook up with a molecular biologist? He blinds her with science, of course. When Elliot builds a computer program to help Molly with her research project, the variables in their evolving relationship shift as rapidly as the terms of their experiment. This deft and imaginative new ROM-comedy shows that even the most sophisticated algorithm may freeze in the face of life's infinite possibilities.

Einstein and Mileva - The story of acclaimed physicist, Albert Einstein, and his first wife, scientist Mileva Maric: the early struggles of his career, the battles within, and a family secret covered for nearly 40 years that ultimately tore them apart. Following Einstein through his years with The Olympia Academy, playwright Caitlin Shannon shares the story of a man lost in his own genius and the wife that gave up everything to see him succeed.

Joan's Show - Joan Copeland stars in her compelling autobiographical tale: a fun-filled performance of songs and stories told by a legendary actress. With humor, grace and humanity, Copeland relives the milestones in her life and career in theatre, film, and television including starring in Pal Joe and standing in for Katharine Hepburn in Coco, to struggling for work after becoming a victim of the blacklist.

Prom Night of the Living Dead - Prom Night of the Living Dead transports its audience back to an authentic 1962 prom as they join the ill-fated high school students in dancing, drinking, and subsequently getting attacked by flesh eating zombies. It is altogether entertaining, exciting, sentimental, and terrifying as you are tossed into what feels like a live-action horror film experience.

The Select (The Sun Also Rises) - Elevator Repair Service’s latest, based on the novel by Ernest Hemingway, presents a fresh take on the author’s tale of young expatriates living in early 20th-century Europe. In it, journalist Jake Barnes, his former lover Lady Brett Ashley and the writer Robert Cohn cope with post-war realities as they enter the “age of anxiety” following WWI.
