Now Or Later
"A HEADY AND PROVOCATIVE BREW!"
- The Boston Globe
On election night, the son of a presidential candidate sends his father's political team into crisis mode when controversial photos of him at a college party spread over the internet, potentially sparking an international incident. Smart and timely, Christopher Shinn's searching new play examines religion, freedom of expression, and personal responsibility.
Written by Christopher Shinn, Directed by Michael Wilson

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson
"Insanely funny! The smartest, sharpest new musical in years."
- Time Out NY
Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson recreates and reinvents the life of 'Old Hickory,' from his humble beginnings on the Tennessee frontier to his days as our seventh Commander-in-Chief. Using an anachronism-filled emo-rock score, the show tells the story of America's first maverick president, who kicked British butt, shafted the Indians, and smacked down the Spaniards, all in the name of these United States.
