What if La Vie Boheme was laced with a hip-hop track and a dope lyricist? What if The Sound of Music was belted out by a 1920s jazz vocalist? What if The Impossible Dream dripped with sultry Latin flavor? These are just a few of the musical mashups you will find in this innovative concert that dares to redefine musical styles and genres. Join award-winning musicians, composers, and singers as we ask the question ‘What If?’ and experience Broadway Revised, Retuned, and Remixed.
DIE Saturdays, March 27 & April 3 @ 10pm
Imagine, if you will, a world unencumbered by the stress of decision-making; a world where you never have to wonder if you made the ‘right decision.’ In this existential comedy, two roommates make this a reality by letting the roll of a DIE decide for them. But is life really carefree when the responsibility is left up to chance? Watch as this duo embarks on comedic misadventures, all of which are orchestrated by YOU. That’s right, because the DIE is in YOUR hands. With 36 possible endings, you won’t see the same show twice. So take a chance.
Their fate. Your hands… Roll the DIE.
