ACAPPELLA, is a groundbreaking piece of theater melding two exciting art forms together. Musical theatre meets acappella in this romantic musical comedy for all ages. A gospel singer leaves home, going from the 'music of praise' to the 'music that pays'. A jaded roadie rushes him away from an arena full of screaming fans while a forgotten and ignored old man on a street corner belts some beautiful blues just because it feeds his soul. Jeremiah realizes that somewhere along the way, it became more about the money than the music. He goes back - to family, to friends, to the woman he left behind, but can he? Is it love or just nostalgia? He returns to the place where everything is familiar, except that nothing is. He learns that he has to find his own way home.

Paris, 1847. SONGS FOR THE FALLEN takes you through the extraordinary life of Marie Duplessis - courtesan, party girl, liar, and legend – from desperate poverty to her meteoric rise as the most notorious woman in France. Part vaudeville, part cabaret, part MTV-goes-Baroque, it is the wild and hilarious tale of a woman who knew one thing: good girls don’t make history. The unbelievable tale that inspired The Lady of the Camellias, La Traviata, and Moulin Rouge!, SONGS FOR THE FALLEN is an invitation to the decadent final party of the real-life woman.
