Written and staged by Joe Christiano, A Plurality of One imagines Walt Whitman — a ghost who resides at the New York Public Library — appearing for a contemporary author event. In spectral form, he arrives to discuss the meaning, influence, and enduring appeal of “Song of Myself,” the central poem in Leaves of Grass. In “Song of Myself,” Whitman took America’s founding documents and added feeling, creating an expression of native soul as inclusive, expansive, and irreducible as the country itself, a boundless identity that would incorporate and liberate generations of readers. Not content to merely offer “the whys and what-fors,” Whitman (played by Stanley Spenger) puts the poem, literally, in the mouths of all present, making the audience as much a part of the drama as the poet himself. A soundscape by Justin J. Jones, weaving street noise with gently heaving symphonics, underscores the recitation, recasting the poem as a chorale for mixed voice — an experiment in democracy that fully succeeds. A Plurality of One brings it — brings us — all together.

It hasn’t even been a word for much more than a decade, but at this point we’ve all complained about “adulting” at one point or another. But few of us have done so as hilariously as comedian Desi Alexander. Catch his Tired of Adulting tour at Tommy T’s.
Humor at its best, this musical comedy electrified Broadway in 2014. When impoverished Monty learns he is eighth in line to become the “Earl of Highhurst,” well, that’s a lot of people to eliminate — but he will give it his best. And that’s just Act One. When the show debuted, the New York Times called it “ingenious” and “among the most inspired and entertaining new musicals.”

It’s a strange new world where everyone has to pay to pee! A winner of three Tony Awards in 2002, including Best Book and Best Score, Urinetown is a rollicking musical satire of capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, politics and musical theatre itself… the perfect comic relief for our treacherous times! Equally funny and bitingly honest, Urinetown provides a new perspective on one potential future. In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage caused by a 20-year drought has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a malevolent company that profits from charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. A hero decides that he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead everyone to freedom! Inspired by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown was praised for revitalizing the very notion of what a musical could be with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit and the ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter!
