As Tim says in his autobiography: aoeFrom a very young age I had wondered what I might have done in the situations in which Pontius Pilate and Judas Iscariot found themselves.

The Old Globe
7/12-8/10/2014
One of the greatest musicals of all time returns in triumph to its birthplace, nearly three decades after its world premiere at The Old Globe, in an inventive new production from Fiasco Theater that originated at McCarter Theatre Center and had The New York Times cheering, "I fell head over heels! Fun, poignant, and truly enchanting." Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Tony Award-winning masterpiece weaves together beloved fairy tales, then ventures into the unknown territory of life after "happily ever after." Fiasco Theater, critically acclaimed for their reinventions of the classics, conjures a mythical world of theatrical invention with 10 actors and a handful of musical instruments. An ordinary rope becomes Jack's famous beanstalk, a ladder becomes Rapunzel's enchanted tower, and the power of transformation creates a beguiling theatre of the imagination!

Now Playing Onstage in San Diego - Week of 7/20/2014 NO EXIT
Long Beach Playhouse
7/26-8/23/2014
Two women and one man are locked up together for eternity in one hideous room in hell. The windows are bricked up; there are no mirrors; the electric lights can never be turned off; and there is no exit. The irony of this hell is that its torture is not of the rack and fire, but of the burning humiliation of each soul as it is stripped of its pretenses by the cruel curiosity of the damned. Here the soul is shorn of secrecy, and even the blackest deeds are mercilessly exposed to the fierce light of hell. It is an eternal torment.
