A series of small scenes and monologues which lock into each other like puzzle pieces and create a larger narrative, Nautilina is an examination of what makes people tick, what makes them behave the way they do.

Six friends head out of the city on their annual retreat for the weekend. With no social media, no cellphones, no internet allowed all, this leaves them with one thing to do… look up from their screens and talk to each other. And when the liquor starts flowing and the tongues start to loosen, no conversation is uneventful and no topic is off-limits. AT THE TABLE is a new comedy that begs the question: what happens when those with privilege are pushed to the periphery and a marginalized minority suddenly finds its voice amplified? Who is allowed at what discussion table, and who isn’t? BNT company member Spenser Davis teams back up with playwright Michael Perlman after producing the Midwest Premiere of Michael’s FROM WHITE PLAINS as part of our second season.

Miller and Andra Velis Simon, Choreographed by Janet Louer. Lizzie Borden took an axe, gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, gave her father forty-one.” So goes the nursery rhyme describing the crime of the century that took the nation by storm when Lizzie Borden murdered her parents with an axe in 1892. Or did she? LIZZIE is a musical that reimagines that bloody legend with four women fronting a female rock band. LIZZIE is American mythology set to a blistering rock score with rage, sex, betrayal and bloody murder.
