In Pieces

A New Musical by Joey Contreras
Directed by Tommy Iafrate
Music Directed by Robyn Womersley
Live Stream Performances from Watters Theater
8 p.m. Nov. 18, 19, 20
2 p.m. Nov. 20, 21

In Pieces is a new musical review with a pop-musical theatre score whose emotional sensitivity and anthemic bops explore the romantic journeys of eight contemporary twentysomethings seeking love in the city as they share, ponder, and reflect on their chosen paths and partners along the way. There’s the scary excitement of being vulnerable and boldly saying yes to the adventures ahead. The magical first kiss. Unlikely friendships. Well-kept secrets. Monotony. Rebounds. An awkward reunion on the subway. And honest conversations of deserving more. All these pieces of life at times connect and disconnect, but from a distance they come together to create a universal mosaic of what it’s like to be young and learning in love.

See who's in the company for In Pieces!

SHE KILLS MONSTERS

By Qui Nguyen
Directed by Brian Gillespie
Performing in Watters Theater

2 p.m. April 30 and May 1, 2022

She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she prepares to leave her childhood home in Ohio after the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. Agnes stumbles upon Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons® notebook, and finds herself propelled into a journey of discovery and adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. In this dramatic comedy laden with ‘90s pop culture and a slew of demons and monsters, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen offers an action-packed homage to the geek and the warrior within us all.
