Perfect Crime

The perfect show for Law & Order, Sherlock, and CSI fans, Perfect Crime is a funny, romantic thriller about a psychiatrist who seems to have killed her rich husband (until he shows up very much alive); the detective who is trying to solve the supposed murder while falling in love with the primary suspect; and the psychiatrist's charming but crazy patient who seems to have killed a few people himself. There are Gone Girl and Agatha Christie-like twists and turns in the plot and there’s an "answer key" for audience members to review after the show if they are still trying to figure out what happened and how.

Game of Thrones: The Rock Musical -
An Unauthorized Parody

TV’s favorite hit drama re-imagined for the stage as a parody rock musical!

An uproarious musical comedy parody of HBO’s tentpole drama series. Following the saga of Eddard ‘Ned’ Stark as he battles tap dancing direwolves, an evil inbred prince and a smattering of other characters too hot and raunchy for network television.
Will Ned climb his way to the Iron Throne? Or will he lose his head in the process?


From the creators of Lost: The Musical and the critically acclaimed Once Upon a Time: The Rock Opera, Game of Thrones: The Rock Musical features 13 original songs which will have audiences on their feet with toes tapping and hands clapping… provided they still have both of their hands.

*This production is independently operated by GOT The Musical, LLC.  It is not sponsored, endorsed or affiliated with HBO or anyone associated with Game of Thrones.

The Mammal Problem:
Storytelling to live music

True Story Project presents New York’s newest art form with a showcase performance of the groundbreaking play, “The Mammal Problem.” ONE NIGHT ONLY!

Synopsis: Two lovers are separated by time and space. He must live on without her. She must watch him do it. It’s a haunting love story, and a perfect way to kick off Halloween night.

The play is 10 true stories covering the last 20 years of the storyteller’s life, all of which were lived without his wife who died of cancer in her 20s. Through monologues and asides, the wife preps the audience for her husband’s stories of accomplishments, online dating fiascos, mental health breakdowns and, ultimately, spiritual renewal. The husband tells his stories supported by live, original music with lyrics that match the story content in emotion and theme. The full play involves interpretive dance and live-art painting to create the set as the plot unfolds.

Musicians from The Juilliard School perform on violin (Chelsea Starbuck Smith) and piano (Adam Rothenberg). Pimps of Joytime bassist and synth player David Bailis and world-percussionist Jimmy Lopez round out the ensemble. The play and music are directed by writer-storyteller Eric Valentine and singer-songwriter Laio. Annie Bulow is the actor playing the deceased wife.

Entry is FREE but seating is LIMITED. Please sign up on the guest list form using the link below.

Conversations With An Average Joe

Conversations With An Average Joe is a timely, engaging town hall type gathering at a local bar that deals with the political turmoil exhibited in the current presidential election cycle. Based on the real-life stories of average “Joes” and “Janes” the Senator has encountered, it portrays the many entertaining musings, monologues and situations that bring to light the injustices we face as a society at the hands of big corporations and big government. It is a chance for these folks to change a broken political system and becomes the perfect fit for the most exciting and publicized election we have ever had in our lifetime.The play is best described more as a “movement” than a play.
New Mexican State Senator Joe Carraro’s powerful new play cleverly tackles the disenchantment that is prevalent and featured widely by the national media in their coverage of this unique presidential election and provides a perfect forum for this new political change. The play will feature an opportunity for audience engagement. It is the first time a major theatrical production has connected directly with the presidential election process.

The Fantasticks

Called "the perfect musical" by the Wall Street Journal, The Fantasticks by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt is a funny version of Romeo and Juliet—a boy and a girl live next door to each other and fall in love because their fathers—best friends—pretend to have a feud. They fall in love, break up, see the world, and have a series of adventures led by a handsome bandit and eventually return home to each other. The show is romantic, funny, and completely child appropriate. The score includes "Try To Remember", "They Were You", and "Soon It's Gonna Rain", songs as timeless as the story itself.
