FEATURED ROUND 28 MUSICALS


EH DAH? QUESTIONS FOR MY FATHER
Book, Music & Lyrics by Aya Aziz
Director: Arpita Mukherjee


Eh Dah? Questions for my Father follows the lives of a family divided across continents and *cultures in a turbulent political landscape. Set in Egypt and America, this contemporary musical by Aya Aziz explores what it means to live in post a 9/11 world.




PROMESA
Book and Lyrics by Noemi de la Puente
Music and Lyrics by David Davila
Director: Sidney Erik Wright


Promesa is a mariachi musical across four centuries that takes you on a pilgrimage to the shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. Yaretzi, an Aztec woman after the fall of Tenochtitlan, Leonora, a soldadera in the Mexican Revolution, and Milagros, a doctor at the height of the AIDS epidemic, all undertake this difficult pilgrimage to the sacred site at El Tepeyac in hopes of a miracle. Not all of them will get the miracle they want, but perhaps faith itself is the miracle they need.




WONDER BOY
Book, Music, and Lyrics by Jacob Jarrett
Choreographers: Ez Menas and Kristin Cherny
Music Director: Jacob Jarrett


Wonder Boy tells the story of Jackson, a young man navigating his identity as a young trans man and as a superhero. When Jackson’s super-genius twin sister, Peyton, creates a mysterious super drug, Jackson steals it, consumes it, and transforms into Wonder Boy. Jackson gains super strength, the ability to fly, and automatic self healing powers. As Jackson saves the day (in a feminist way) on campus, he learns that his healing powers may mean he has to put his gender affirming surgery on hold indefinitely. Meanwhile, Peyton experiences severe memory loss and begins to lose her identity. Wonder Boy explores the dissonance we all feel between our bodies and brains, and the connections we make with our loved ones to survive this dissonance.




FEMMEBODIES
Book, Music, and Lyrics by Éamon Boylan
Director: Éamon Boylan
Music Director: Scottie Hawley


Femmebodies is the way we move. It is a mosaic of impressions, depicting trans sisterhood, strength and solidarity, a day in the life. Inspired by the radical lens of filmmaker, Agnés Varda, Femmebodies transcends trans trauma and moves to something new.
