The Great American Trailer Park MusicalThe Great American Trailer Park Musical

Book by Betsy Kelso

Music and Lyrics by David Nehls

"More fun than a chair-throwing episode of Jerry Springer set to music."--The New Yorker

"South Park meets Desperate Housewives in this big-hearted new musical comedy” —NY Sun.

There's a new tenant at Armadillo Acres—and she's wreaking havoc all over Florida's most exclusive trailer park. When Pippi, the stripper on the run, comes between the Dr. Phil–loving, agoraphobic Jeannie and her tollbooth collector husband—the storms begin to brew.

Failure: A Love Story

Failure: A Love Story

 ‘Failure’ an intelligent, exuberant success! -Chicago Theatre Beat

Failure: A Love Story is a magical, whimsical fable that traces the sisters’ triumphs and defeats, lived out in the rickety two-story building by the Chicago River that was the Fail family home and clock shop. This funny, moving and profoundly wise play reminds us that in the end, all that remains is love.
