BLAKE SUGARMAN: Prelude to the Apocalypse (For What It's Worth) 
Feb 1 - 2 at 8pm | Feb 10 at 8pm | Feb 11 at 3pm      
Prelude to the Apocalypse (For What It's Worth) engages with the climate crises in a number of unexpected ways: through the lens of evolutionary time, the biblical apocalypse, and the process of growing up as a person and a society. It also examines the human tendency to make wishes, and what that means in moments when we feel powerless. It all takes place in the shadow of a giant hourglass. Nevertheless, the universe breathes on. Prelude to the Apocalypse (For What It's Worth) is written and performed by Blake Sugarman and directed by Jacob Sexton.

JOHN JARBOE: You Can Never Go Down The Drain:  a Musical Children's Program for Adults in 2018 
Feb 3 at 8pm | Feb 4 at 3pm | Feb 8 - 9 at 8pm

Mr. Rogers was known for saying no matter how bad things are "You can never go down the drain."  Using and abusing iconic songs from the program, Philadelphia's Bearded Ladies Cabaret, puts this to the test.  For this workshop performance, expect a gold fish funeral, gay romps into the land of make-believe, and some earnest questions about irony. You Can Never Go Down The Drain is created by The Bearded Ladies Cabaret and written and performed by John Jarboe.

Feb 15 - 16 at 8pm | Feb 24th at 8pm | Feb 25th at 3pm
Mermaid's Howl written, directed and performed by Marina Celander is a fantastical One-Woman piece, full of magic and dreams. The characters are WOMAN and DAUGHTER. They speak to each other through time and space, through ocean divers and earth creatures, through madness and memories, remembering their way back to their matriline in Korea. Music and soundscape by Infinite DÃ¥kot-Ta.

MEGAN METRIKIN: Finding Fellini
Feb 17th at 8pm | Feb 18th at 3pm | Feb 22 - 23 at 8pm

Written and performed by Megan Metrikin Finding Fellini centers around a Jewish woman's escape from the brutal realities of apartheid South Africa into a Fellini infused cinematic landscape. Projection images from the maestro's films, as well as Fellini quotes, weave together representing the creativity, freedom and vibrancy Fellini symbolizes to a woman running from the horrors of her home country where repression is the suffocating norm.  Directed and Designed by Guy De Lancey
