Dry Land

Amy and Ester must find a way to terminate Amy’s unwanted pregnancy. . .soon. Limited by their age and the legal restrictions on reproductive health services in their locality, the two best friends meet in the locker room of their Florida high school and do their best to manage the situation while struggling with academics, athletics, and their own respective physical and emotional growing pains. Dry Land was written by Ms. Spiegel during her senior year at Yale University and was a finalist for the 2015 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize in playwriting.  This play deals with adult subject matter and is not appropriate for minors.

The Musical

Winner of three TONY Awards, three Outer Critic's Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards, and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective of one of America's greatest art forms with a keen observation of social injustice in our society.

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 impoverished citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides he's had enough, and plans to stand up for equity to lead them all to freedom!
