AN INTOLERANT VAUDEVILLE was inspired by Sam Viverito's visit to the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles. Written in the structure of a traditional vaudeville show, An Intolerant Vaudeville cracks open a piñata of slurs, stereotypes and identity politics that will leave the audience gasping from laughter, or maybe from shock. The show features a wide range of characters with diverse backgrounds, sexualities, body types and ethnicities, along with the people who hate them. Thrill to "The Fat Lady Don't Sing"; "The Contortionists," who twist themselves in knots trying not to offend one another; or the "Animal Parade" of racial and ethnic stereotypes! End with a glimmer of hope as "12 Angry Schmucks" must determine the fate of bigoted humanity in a sweltering downtown courtroom! Shocking and moving by turns, An Intolerant Vaudeville gives you an evening of theater you won't soon forget.

Sometimes it takes an elephant in the room to show you what you believe in. ELEPHANTS AND OTHER WORLDLY DILEMMAS, a new play by Dina Laura, is a comedy about faith and how it affects the decisions we make. Martha is a devout receptionist who can't make decisions without a sign. Seth is Martha's superhero-scientist-coworker who challenges her to leap, whether there's a sign or not. There's also Sal, a computer nerd in charge of other people's technology, but lost in his own life, until one night he stumbles into Crystal, a devilish bartender who's always in charge. When Fred, a mysterious temp, comes along to be there when people need him the most, we see that Fred might just need the most help of all. Join this motley crew on a mystical ride and discover that sometimes all you need is a little faith and a dead elephant. For more information, please visit: www.theelephantplay.com

SHAKE THE EARTH hinges on the tension between Armenian and gay pride. Bolstered by kufta and string cheese, Lousine yearns to be a good Armenian and defender of her ancestors who survived the Genocide. But, as a lesbian, she may be the last person her great-grandfather Georgi--and most of their countrymen--would want to give the account of his remarkable story of survival. Driven by the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, which the Turkish government consistently and aggressively denies, Lousine finds the courage to speak.
