In the bleak, corporate break room of a craft store in Idaho, someone is summoning The Rapture. Will, who has fled his rural hometown after a scandal at his Evangelical church, comes to the Hobby Lobby, for a chance for a new start along with the possibility of connecting with his past. Alex works there along with Leroy, his adopted brother and protector, and Anna, a hapless young woman who reads bland fiction but hopes for dramatic endings. As their manager, foul-mouthed Pauline, tries ceaselessly to find order (and profit) in the chaos of small business, these lost souls of the Hobby Lobby confront an unyielding world through the beige-tinted impossibility of modern faith. Samuel D. Hunter's A Bright New Boise is a earnest comedy about the meager profits of modern faith.

Victor/Victoria is a witty comic romp examining questions of gender, identity and love, set in Paris in the 1930s. English soprano Victoria Grant finds herself at a nightclub, without work or money. She meets Carroll Todd, or "Toddy," a performer at the club who gets fired while trying to help her. The two soon team up and embark on an unlikely (and surprisingly successful) scheme. With Toddy's help, Victoria becomes "Count Victor Grazinski" - a renowned female impersonator. The twist is of course that she is a woman, claiming to be a man, claiming to be a woman. Things get even crazier when sparks begin to fly between Victoria and a notorious Chicago businessman King Marchan, and he sets out to uncover "the Count's" secret. The show is based on a 1933 German film, written by Reinhold Schünzel and titled Viktor und Viktoria. The story was reworked as a musical film in 1982 starring Julie Andrews with a script by Blake Edwards (who also directed) and Hans Hoemburg, music by Henry Mancini and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse.
A Weekend With Pablo Picasso finds the artist living in France in 1957 at the height of his celebrity and facing an unexpected, high-profile commission to crank out six paintings and three vases over the course of a single weekend. "Who do you think I am - Dali?" he grouses on the phone to his art dealer. Picasso has grudgingly allowed a group of art students - the audience - to stay at his home/studio while his family is away, a serviceable premise allowing Siguenza to directly engage us with jokes, stories and insights into the artistic life culled from Picasso's interviews and writings, all while painting, drawing, and creating beautiful abstract pieces before the audience's eyes.
