In Michigan's Upper Peninsula, deer hunting season is underway for the rugged men of the Soady family. The biggest challenge of the season occurs when young Albert brings (gasp!) a woman to the camp with him. But, Big Betty Balou is not your average bride-to-be. In Jeff Daniels' prequel to the hilarious Escanaba In Da Moonlight, he brings out the charm and romantic side of these wacky yoopers.

One of the greatest love stories of all time has been transformed into this major new Broadway musical. True to its 19th century origins and the original novel by Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre is a lavish Victorian banquet of emotions; It is a story of passion, faith, forgiveness, and - most of all - the eternal healing power of an all-consuming love. Jane Eyre’s sweeping love story is breathtaking in its scope and beauty, steeped in rich tradition and overflowing with joy. Filled with soaring melodies, the score embodies a romantic lyricism uncommon in the modern Broadway musical.

Welcome to Starke, Florida! Just off Highway 301 is Armadillo Acres, North Florida’s most exclusive manufactured housing community. (OK. It’s a Trailer Park.) Amongst the hot weather and Britney Spears sightings, a couple’s marriage is in danger. Agoraphobic Jeannie hasn’t stepped out of her trailer in twenty years, and her toll-collecting husband Norbert is catching the eye of Pippi, the stripper who just moved in next door. It’s getting about as tense as a Lifetime Movie of the Week starring Judith Light! The music and laughs never stop in this rollicking new musical.

conceived by Angela C. Santomero, Traci Paige Johnson, and Todd Kessler
