In 1957, West Side Story premiered on Broadway and changed the face of the modern American musical. Its creators are lauded as titans in the modern theater, collectively winning 37 Tony Awards over the past 60 years. It was through fire, brimstone, vitriol and Jerome Robbins perceived insanity that this piece was born, and remains an institution to this day. In Something's Coming, we meet our heroes at the beginning of the writing process, and follow them through the highs, lows, burnt cigarettes and double shots of whiskey that created the greatest American musical.

ALWAYS… PATSY CLINE has enjoyed great success all over the United States, including a successful run off-Broadway. It has been one of the most produced musicals in America according to American Theatre Magazine. ALWAYS… PATSY CLINE has also been enjoyed internationally by audiences in Canada, the UK and Australia. ALWAY… PATSY CLINE is more than a tribute to the legendary country singer who died tragically at age 30 in a plane crash in 1963. The show is based on a true story about Cline's friendship with a fan from Houston named Louise Seger, who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in 1961, and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death. The musical play, complete with down home country humor, true emotion and even some audience participation, includes many of Patsy' unforgettable hits such as Crazy, I Fall to Pieces, Sweet Dreams and Walking After Midnight… 27 songs in all. The show's title was inspired by Cline's letters to Seger, which were consistently signed "Love ALWAYS… Patsy Cline."

While juggling scheming socialites, name-dropping wannabes, fickle celebrities and egomaniacal bosses, can he manage to look out for himself? A wonderful acting challenge, FULLY COMMITTED has forty wildly diverse characters designed to be played by a single versatile performer.
The Decline and Fall of the Entire World as Seen Through the Eyes of COLE PORTER
Victory Productions: Summer in Residence at The Studio Theatre™ Tierra del Sol
Ben Bagley, the proven master of revue, has concocted a tongue-in-cheek historic cavalcade from the rare jewels of Cole Porter's vast musical treasure trove. The 'world' under scrutiny is that between 1919 and 1945 when, indeed, some considerable declining and falling went on. Here, the generally unsuspected meanings behind many of Porter's songs indicate that during times of chaos and destruction, he saw the world with an impudent, highly sophisticated and indomitably euphoric gaze. Porter created a world of his own through his songs, and made ours richer in the process.
