A new virtual wonderland provides total sensory immersion. Just log in, choose an identity and indulge your every whim. But when a young detective uncovers a disturbing brand of entertainment, she triggers a dark battle over technology and human desire. Winner of the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, The Nether is both serpentine crime drama and haunting sci-fi thriller that explores the consequences of living out our private dreams.
How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying
Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser, Book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock, and Willie Gilbert
Directed by Steve Luber
Winner of the Tony for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize, this musical follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant “company man,” the office party, backstabbing co-workers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love. A satire that feels just as poignant today as it did in 1961.
