Making God Laugh
The show follows one typical American family over the course of 30 years’ worth of holidays. Starting in 1980, Ruthie and Bill’s grown children – a priest, an aspiring actress, and a former football star – all return home, where we learn of their plans and dreams as they embark on their adult lives. The empty-nester parents contend with their own changes, too, as old family rituals are trotted out and ancient tensions flare up.

Fly By Night
With a non-traditional, charming and catchy score by Will Connolly and Michael Mitnick, this darkly comic rock-fable, portrays a melancholy sandwich maker’s humdrum life and how it is intersected by two entrancing sisters, weaving into its overlapping love stories a resonating message about how the ‘invisible universe’ connects us all. A sweeping ode to young love set against the backdrop of the northeast blackout of 1965, Fly By Night is an original and enchanting tale about making your way and discovering hope in a world beset by darkness.
