THE BIG ORANGE SPLOT
Based on the book by: Daniel Pinkwater
A musical based on the children's picture book, The Big Orange Splot tells the story of Mr. Plumbean who lives on a very "neat street" where all the houses look the same.
After a seagull drops a can of orange paint on his roof, Mr. Plumbean is pressured by his neighbors to return things back to normal, but he instead redesigns his home to look like his dreams.
Every night a new neighbor visits to convince Mr. Plumbeam to "fix" his house but instead they end up discussing their dreams and by the morning another house on the street is uniquely designed to match the person living in it.
By the end of the show, the whole neighborhood is no longer "neat" but instead reflects the dreams of the people living there.
"Our street is us and we are it. Our street is where we like to be, and it looks like all our dreams."
- Daniel Pinkwater
TURN OF THE SCREW
Composer: Benjamin Britten
Librettist: Myfanwy Piper
By: Charles L. Mee
Based on the life and art of artist Joseph Cornell. Most well know for his assemblage shadow-boxes, Cornell's life is collaged together by Charles Mee into a series of vignettes involving the mans home life and romantic interests as well as discussions by scientists about found objects and the death of his brother.
The design plays on the idea of city life and how every building is a living Cornell box of stories. Each window of that building then also becomes the frame of another smaller Cornell box and the zooming continues.
Music & Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim
Book: John Weidman
By: William Shakespeare
A fresh staging of Macbeth set in the modern greed-filled world of corporate warfare. The battle for a kingdom is replaced with a battle for the building and control of the company.
The witches, now janitors, know the in's and out's of the business underworld that takes place outside their janitor's closet and brew potion's in their mop bucket.
The rising army coming from England is now the rebelling mail room and "Birnam wood", a neighboring company - Birnam Paper Co. - may also have a stake in who gets control of the building when they take the elevators up to the top floors for all out war against Macbeth C.E.O.
