​Based on the real-life events of Operación Pedro Pan, a young boy is sent to the U.S. to escape the growing dangers of post-revolutionary Cuba. To survive, Pedro must learn a new language and a new culture – while hoping to someday be reunited with his parents. With a score featuring the percussive rhythms of Havana to '60s New York soul, the award-wining musical PEDRO PAN examines what it means to be a displaced immigrant in America.

Salomé vs. John is a musical retelling of the story of Salomé and the prophet John, traditionally referred to as John the Baptist. Our story begins with King Herod coaxing his young stepdaughter, Salomé, to perform a seductive dance for him and ends with (spoiler alert!) a bloody head delivered on a silver platter. By viewing this event through a modern lens, we examine what it means to hold power, what it means to be complicit in the face of injustice, and what it means to walk a spiritual path at odds with the world. Throughout the course of the evening, we ask the question “How far is too far?,” as audience members question their own complicity by letting the party go on as a young woman is sexualized by her stepfather and an innocent man loses his head.
