Our New Look
Our new website is coming soon! Our audience can expect new features with a updated production design.

The Glass Menagerie is a bonafide and vaunted part of the American theatrical canon. And as a memory play, has few peers, which is why Director Monica White Ndounou (en-DOO-noo) sees this as an opportunity to “have a conversation with Tennessee Williams, a call and response of sorts. We want to show how Black people might have experienced this period in history and why it matters now by infusing it with Blackness in an organic way as reflected through our lived experiences."
One of the most prolific love stories of all time, this newly conceptualized production of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers is reimagined in a contemporary setting. It’s love at first-sight, for teen Romeo when he meets the enchanting Juliet at a party. Unbeknownst to either, they discover the other is from an ancient family rival.  How strong is their desire to go against all encounters and remain true when the unimaginable happens? Leave your “already-seen-it” minds behind, for this production has a different surprise. 


If you're looking forward to seeing one of our productions,
