Got Mommy Issues? Join us on a musical journey with Lily, a first generation Chinese immigrant, and her daughter Mei as they endure the trials and tribulations of old school parenting in a new country. Like many Chinese, Mei and her mom Lily consider the piano the gateway to success, pushing their children to the limit, striving for perfection at every opportunity. But at Mei's daughter Kim's piano recital, Mei clashes with Lily over how much is too much parenting. Mei must decide for herself what is the perfect balance of mixing the old with the new and still meet her mother's approval. East meets west in this funny, irreverent and moving story about a mother, a daughter, a piano, and tough love, Asian style. With classical piano music and contemporary musical theater songs. Book and lyrics by Angela Chan and Michael Manley, music by Angela Chan, directed by Lysander Abadia, designed by Angela Chan. New York premiere.

The New York premiere of an astonishing journey into the world of ancient Indian theater by Kaliyuga Arts. The work combines the Natya Shastra, a remarkably refined and elaborately detailed pre-Christian theatre text from India, with Teyyam, a primitive South India ritual, to create a work that "plunges audiences into a dazzling realm of color and movement, virtually unknown in the West but filled with amazing insights and invaluable lessons for all those who treasure theatre" (Teed Rockwell, India Currents).

Playwright and performer John Sowle has a Ph.D. in Dramatic Art from the University of California at Berkeley and received a Fulbright Fellowship to study dance-theatre in South India. Sowle and his partner Steven Patterson, who directed Horripilation!, founded Kaliyuga Arts in 1986 in Los Angeles and have produced, directed, designed and performed award-winning Kaliyuga Arts' shows in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York. Most recently Sowle directed a revival of the Al Carmines and Gertrude Stein musical In Circles at Judson Memorial Church, where it was done originally in the 60s. He is currently the Associate Artistic Director at Stageworks in Hudson, NY.
