Straight No Chaser in Broadway STRAIGHT NO CHASER
Florida Theatre
If the phrase "male a cappella group" conjures up an image of students in blue blazers, ties, and khakis singing traditional college songs on ivied campuses… think again. Straight No Chaser (SNC) are neither strait-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch. They have emerged as a phenomenon with a massive fanbase, numerous national TV appearances and proven success with CD releases. They're performing on the heels of the release of Under The Influence, their fourth album release through Atlantic Records. The album features contributions from superstars Jason Mraz, Rob Thomas, Phil Collins, Dolly Parton and more! Straight No Chaser is the real deal, the captivating sound of ten unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental sense… and with a sense of humor. On the road, Straight No Chaser has built a reputation as an unforgettable live act.

The Whipping Man in Broadway THE WHIPPING MAN
Players By The Sea
A moving drama about freedom and faith. In the last days of the Civil War, Caleb, a wounded young Confederate officer staggers into his family's war-ravaged home in Richmond, Virginia. He finds that his family has fled, leaving behind only two former slaves, Simon and John, to protect the property. Caleb, maimed and disillusioned by war, has lost his faith. John is using his new freedom to plunder the deserted homes of the neighborhood. Only Simon retains a steadfast moral compass, sustained by the family faith - which is Jewish. In a powerful scene, he organizes a Passover Seder that celebrates not only the deliverance of the Israelites from Pharaoh's bondage, but the emancipation of his own people from slavery. The three men grapple with their new relationship and interdependency, not as master and slave, but as comrades and brothers.

Theatre Partners, LLC
Set in an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war. Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with a mature French planter, Emile. Nellie learns that the mother of his children was an island native and, unable to turn her back on the prejudices with which she was raised, refuses Emile's proposal of marriage. Meanwhile, the strapping Lt. Joe Cable denies himself the fulfillment of a future with an innocent Tonkinese girl with whom he's fallen in love out of the same fears that haunt Nellie. When Emile is recruited to accompany Joe on a dangerous mission that claims Joe's life, Nellie realizes that life is too short not to seize her own chance for happiness, thus confronting and conquering her prejudices.Music by Rodgers, Richard; Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; Book by Oscar Hammerstein II & Joshua Logan; Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize winning novel
