Shelter From the Rain
NextStage Virtual Studio
Written and Directed by Dallas Ensing
Through poetic language, Shelter From the Rain shares the pain and beauty of a relationship - the communication, anxieties, disconnect, ghosts of the past, and how we can somehow move forwards and backwards at the same time. It's a story about Love, and how the uncertainty principle can apply to our intimate, secret lives. This live-streamed show is part of our September Workshop Series, which features works performed by actors from all over the world. This show will be presented with another one-act production titled "Reasons to Go to New Jersey". You can buy a ticket for this show, or buy a discount ticket to see all of our virtual workshops!

The Vegetable
Marquee Company (18+)
The NextStage Virtual Studio
Adapted and Directed by Tyler Phillips
Written by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Fitzgerald’s only full-length play is this three act, nearly one hundred year old farce about an inexperienced, narcissistic, and delusional man who becomes President and nearly deconstructs the entire country by appointing unfit family members to office and making rash decisions to protect his power. Some work just stands the test of time, yeah? According to our NextStage research, this rare work has only been produced a few times since its 1929 closing on Broadway. Our team is breathing new life into this piece on Election Night-Eve as we virtually present it in a visual-radio-play format with original piano music interludes and a 1920’s virtual costume contest.
