DEAD MAN’S CELL PHONE

Dead Man's Cell Phone poster
Written by Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Tad Janes


An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet café…a woman at the next table who has had enough…and a dead man…with a lot of loose ends. So begins “Dead Man’s Cell Phone,” a wildly imaginative comedy by MacArthur “Genius” Grant recipient and Pulitzer Prize finalist, Sarah Ruhl. A work about how we memorialize the dead—and how that remembering changes us—it is the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.

HAIR

HAIR poster.
Book and Lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado
Music by Galt MacDermot


“Hair,” knows as the “American Tribal Love-Rock Musical,” puts rock music and the culture that went with it on stage. Its phenomenal musical numbers include “Aquarius,” “Good Morning Starshine,” “What a Piece of Work Is Man,” “East to Be Hard,” and many others. As a social commentary of our times, “Hair” provides an insight into the philosophy of the flower children of the 1960’s. As the first and most successful of the rock musicals, “Hair” provides a new element in musical theatre entertainment.
