To live in Chagrin Falls, Oklahoma is to be in the killing business…
The town’s major employers are a cattle slaughterhouse and a penitentiary where lethal injection is administered. Whether they work at the slaughterhouse, play preacher or guard to death row inmates, or merely offer a bed and a hot meal to those visiting the prison, each resident of Chagrin Falls makes their living off of death and captivity.
Winner of the 2001 American Theatre Critics Association Osborn Award Chagrin Falls has also received a Joseph Jefferson Award and After Dark Award for Best New Work (2002), as well as a Cincinnati Entertainment Award for Best Production and first prize in the Julie Harris Playwriting Competition.
Adapted from Pauline Viardot-Garcia’s 1904 opera Cendrillon, and many of her other compositions, Andra Velis Simon’s musical-play is an elegantly irreverent exploration of the classic fairy tale. Here, Cinderella’s version of happily-ever-after does not include acceptance by the Prince. In the actor-as-orchestra style of The Hypocrites’ Gilbert & Sullivan opera work, Artistic Director Sean Graney directs this fun holiday-time show, perfect for the whole family. From the co-adapter of H.M.S. Pinafore and director of All Our Tragic.

Life is great on Seahaven Island. The sun shines every day, neighbors wave and say hello, and everyone gets along. There’s no reason to worry about any of the pesky problems of the world here. Come join us for a visit! Take a gander into the lives of Seahaven’s citizens, including its most special resident, Truman Burbank.
Truman has been the unwitting star of this show since his birth almost 30 years ago. Let’s just hope he doesn’t find out that his friends and family are actors, his hometown is a set, and his whole life is orchestrated by a man in a control booth.
“How’s It Going To End” is a deconstructed and remixed adaptation of The Truman Show. Utilizing sound, movement, dance, and theatrical replication, we’ll see what happens when the cracks and seams become visible and our world threatens to get a little bigger.
