Baby Wants Candy - Baby Wants Candy begins with the cast asking the audience for a suggestion of a musical that has never been performed before. Accompanied by a full band, the first title that the group hears becomes the title and theme for that evening's 60-minute show. It's a roller coaster ride of spontaneously choreographed dance numbers, rhyming verses, and witty jaw-dropping comedy. Each performance is its own opening and closing night, and by design every show is completely unique and a once-in-a-lifetime premiere.

Macbeth, A Musical - An original musical retelling of Shakespeare's classic play set in a Retro-Future/Steampunk world. This timeless story of one man's struggle between duty and desire in a war-torn country is an exciting and passionate theatrical experience. Through thrilling fight and dance sequences, modern dialogue and captivating music, Macbeth captures the essence of Shakespeare's play, presenting it in a relevant, mesmerizing and accessible format.

Midnight in Havana - Veteran New York Daily News writer-editor Robert Dominguez wrote this unique theatrical experience set in a seedy Havana nightclub against the backdrop of the Cuban Revolution. A comedy-drama that transports audiences back to the exciting and dangerous hours before Batista will flee, Castro will take over and everyone's lives - including the club's sexy showgirls, conniving emcee and slimy owner - will change forever.

Savage in Limbo - A touching, gutsy comedy by John Patrick Shanley (Oscar winner for Moonstruck/ Pulitzer Prize winner for Doubt). A drunk, a virgin and a ho -- is there Hope? Three grade school classmates run into each other at a Bronx bar. Their lives did not turn out as they thought. Will they end up frenemies, roommates, or rivals?
