Join actor-singer-writer Ami Brabson on a journey through life’s transitions, big and small. This World Premiere one-woman show combines storytelling, poetry, and song to reflect on the inevitable changes in our lives and the self discovery that often follows. The loss of a parent, the demolition of a house, and the discovery of political passions all inspire reflection, music and, ultimately, hope.

Part coming-of-age tale, part social commentary and, part comedy. American Rookie grapples with what it means to be an immigrant at a time when the country can't stop talking about it. Inspired by Bramhandkar's experiences growing up and living in America after moving from Mumbai to rural Upstate New York, American Rookie brings to life the joy, humor, and pain of the assimilation process - from mimicking 80's fashion and studying Judy Blume books to constructing a new American persona altogether

Moses and Kitch stand around on the corner talking smack, passing the time, and hoping that today a miracle will come. They stand by a lamppost in a present-day ghetto, but it's also a plantation, and it's also Egypt, a city built by slaves. A provocative mashup of Waiting for Godot and the Exodus saga, Pass Over exposes the unquestionable human spirit of young black men who dream about a promised land they've yet to find.

She lives very efficiently in the apartment above her uncle's jewelry store in Queens, and leaves the drama to her brother Raj, the soon-to-be-married prince of the family. Then an unexpected encounter with Irish actor-musician Liam threatens all of Shruti's practical plans. As their romance blossoms, they navigate cultural traditions, ICE raids, and newly unfettered racism. Shruti Gupta Can Totally Deal is a Bollywood-tinged romance that explores what it means to be American.
