Trophy Room | By Mike DiSalvo

In a warehouse that houses the products made from the world’s most endangered animals, 3 security guards prepare for the arrival of an extremely rare and valuable piece; and in the process confront the fears and prejudices that lie just below the surface. They come to learn that the animals lining the shelves of the warehouse might not be the only endangered species present.

Bisland & Bly | Lyrics by Marialena DiFabbio & Susannah Jones | Music by Marialena DiFabbio | Book & Additional Music by Susannah Jones

In November 1889, Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland set off in opposite directions on a history-making race around the globe to beat Phileas Fogg’s fictional record from Around the World in Eighty Days. Though a world apart, Nellie and Elizabeth found themselves on a journey that would change and connect their lives forever. With a score inspired by American folk and classical musical theatre, Bisland & Bly is the story of two remarkable and remarkably different women who dared to persist in the pursuit of their dreams.
