FOUNTAIN OF YOU: 
A MUSICAL comedy
(Book and Lyrics by TASHA gordon-Solmon) 

FOUNTAIN OF YOU is an irreverent, feminist chamber musical satirizing society’s preoccupation with youth and beauty, and the patriarchal system underlying it all.  When a thirty-something actress is suddenly aged out of the industry, she undergoes an unconventional spa procedure in the hopes of getting her old life back. But it sets her on a whole new path to achieve true power and equality… at a cost.

THE LONELY DOLL:
A Full Length musical
(Book and Lyrics by Tasha Gordon-Solmon)  

THE LONELY DOLL tells the story of Dare Wright, a pioneering photographer who created a groundbreaking series of children’s books in the 1960s. The developments in Dare’s life coincided with the evolution of the women’s movement in the twentieth century. A story about the power of imagination, our show explores how the act of creating art is also the act of finding one’s agency.

Rhyme & Punishment:
A musical comedy in one act  [45’]
(Book and Lyrics by Anton Dudley)  

Three college Juniors fail a poetry class just days before their Spring Semester Abroad. As they scatter across the globe in this one-act musical comedy, the jilted Juniors go on a journey of self-discovery with only a stack of poems as their guide. Through songs modeled after international poetic forms (Haiku, Sonnet, Sapphic verse, etc.), the friends navigate near-death experiences, romantic trysts, foreign sports, and foreign brews, only to find poetic pleasure in what first seems like punishment.

Baba Yaga and the Firebird: 
A musical for family audiences [60’] 
(Book and Lyrics by Anton Dudley) 

A young queen is denied her throne.  A peasant boy searches for a bird of fire to save his mother.  Their destinies collide in the hut of the witch Baba Yaga, who sends them on a wild journey across an enchanted land to find their strength in the power of friendship.  Baba Yaga and The Firebird is an original tale based on Russian folklore, written in a form that blurs the lines between musical theater, story theater and vaudeville.
