The Miracle by Joel Potash

It’s Chanukah in the worst of times and the least likely place where human transformation is expected. At a glance, their uniforms suggest a known and horrid story: a yellow star of David, a pink triangle and a swastika. Can a single candle illuminate and transform the hearts of these men in such a place?

It was PHENOMENAL!!! / Come see this beautiful piece. / I really enjoyed the show.

It was PHENOMENAL!!! / Come see this beautiful piece. / I really enjoyed the show.

phillis: The american revolutionary by sonita l. surratt

The voice of the Gospel, the Voice of Scripture was her daily sword, her resounding musket heard thoughout the land:  "In every human breast, God has implanted a principle which we call love of freedom. It's impatient of oppression and pants for deliverance."

On September 1, 1773, Phillis Wheatley’s Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral was published in London, England. 

"ARISE, my soul, on wings enraptur’d, rise / To praise the monarch of the earth and skies / Whose goodness and beneficence appear / As round its centre moves the rolling year / Or when the morning glows with rosy charms, / Or the sun slumbers in the ocean’s arms: / Of light divine be a rich portion lent / To guide my soul, and favour my intent. / Celestial muse, my arduous flight sustain / And raise my mind to a seraphic strain!" 

(Phillis Wheatley)

The Inheritance the musical by monica patton & bobby daye

Love, Drugs & Southern Discomfort!


Beautiful and accomplished Milla Dejoie receives a phone call in the middle of the night from her estranged mother, Wilhelmina. Her grandmother, "Thee", Mrs Dejoie, dowager of polite society, is dead, and, along with her, their inheritance - unless Milla comes home to bury her. 

Milla reluctantly leaves her idyllic life abroad and returns to her ancestral home, a sprawling postbellum mansion... and to her mother, an aged, drug-addled debutante handicapped by the burden of bearing such legacy.
