Creation is a solo clown show in the tradition of Harpo Marx and Bill Irwin, conceived and performed by Lucas Caleb Rooney, directed by Orlando Pabotoy, and produced by Ty Jones. Creation is a physically raucous exploration of the creative process.

Jazz Desert (The Life & Death of an American Band) is a tell-all trip into a ĎBehind the Musicí special told by rock artist Rebecca Hart about the inception and demise of her band, ĎThe Rebecca Hart Projectí. Ms. Hart, whose debut solo album will be released in 2006, performs her original music as she narrates the bandís adventures, tours, romances, and eventual breakup.

The Accidental Pervert, written and performed by comic Andrew Goffman, tells of his boyhood spent secretly indulging in his dadís extensive porn collection, and his subsequent struggle balancing his triple-X fantasy world with two non-airbrushed real females in his adult life: his wife and baby daughter. Charles Messina directs.

Soul To Keep weaves the history and the present of the African American Experience with a DJ assisted backdrop of music using familiar characters like Harriet Tubman, all portrayed by Joyia Bradley. The show is directed by Joanne Zipay and features DJ Priest.

Wild Rice is a cross-cultural comedy written and performed by Asian- American actor and playwright, Scarlett Lam, in the bitingly honest style of Margaret Cho. Wild Rice tells the irreverent comic coming of age story of a motherís obsession with inflicting Chinese culture on her New Jersey tomboy daughter who is neither a delicate geisha nor mysterious dragon lady.

I Need A Guy Who Blinks takes the audience on a whacky dating journey with performer and writer, Janine Squillari, through New York Cityís varied locales as she searches for Mr. Right - but ends up with a perfect dummy.

Pentecostal Wisconsin, a solo comedy with music, is Ryan Paulsonís comic and autobiographical tale of religious ecstasy and bashful Scandinavians.
