Apollo's Fire - A Night at Bach's Coffeehouse
Cleveland's acclaimed Baroque orchestra plays music by J. S. Bach, Vivaldi, and Telemann. After working for church and court, Bach let his hair down at Zimmerman's Coffeehouse -- Leipzig's 18th century equivalent of Starbucks. Zimmerman hired freelance musicians and Bach directed music by his favorite composers.

Antarktikos (World Premiere)
By Andrea Stolowitz, directed by Sheila McKenna. Antarktikos is a mind-bending play about heroism, saying goodbye, and moving forward. Somewhere between Oregon and Antarctica lie several points on a continuum: Susan, a writer at an artists residency at the South Pole; Captain Robert Falcon Scott, leader of the British Antarctic expedition of 1912; and Hilary, Susan's 21-year-old daughter. When an insomniac EMT named Alex becomes the hapless link among them, time collapses, geographies blend, and destinies emerge.

The Sisters Grey
In collaboration with the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, this theatrical presentation by Gab Cody and Lori Roper tells of two sisters-in-law (one Black and one Jewish) who both believe their family histories of racial oppression require retribution and sacrifice from others. A funeral, an heirloom ring which survived the Holocaust, and a bevy of secrets set the stage for turmoil in this comedy that asks why we still question love outside our own tribe.
