The award-winning songwriter inspires and disarms with his raw wit and emotional depth as he leads you on a musical journey from boyhood to manhood, through pain and healing, to discover the redemptive power of music.

They have more in common than they know.

Caroline hates poetry. She’s also something of a loner. So just about the last thing she wanted was a complete stranger named Anthony walking through her bedroom door to work on a school project about Walt Whitman. But as the two very different teenagers uncover deep bonds, Caroline finds herself opening up in ways she never imagined possible. Their journey is an explosion of thought on art, connection, and identity that will warm your heart, with an ending that will leave you breathless.

Laughing at a drunk guy, but in a good way.

Things start out so well for our hero. After all, not every Mormon boy gets to be baptized for the dead. By the time he’s in his 30’s, his career is soaring (the Mormonism, not so much). But somehow sneaking beer in high school has turned into sneaking vodka in staff meetings - and having it all turns into losing everything. A darkly funny take on the science of addiction, recovery, and the importance of finding just the right Jews at just the right time.

The power of the love of the game.

Baseball fans know all about commitment and hope. But in life outside the ballpark, that dedication can be harder to hold on to. Lauren is thinking only about the monumentally important playoff game she and her mother are about to attend, but her mother has her own agenda. In this touching play, set against the dual backdrops of the 2003 and 1906 Chicago Cub teams, three die-hard fans and one die-hard player reveal the redeeming power of baseball.

When he lies and schemes to stay in her life, is it in the name of true love or just another part of his obsession with the hip-hop lifestyle?
