SYNOPSIS: Sloane and Timothy are your typical middle-class couple. Sure, they squabble, but their sex life is still adventurous. Timothy holds things together thanks to Xanax, and Sloane makes baked goods for church fundraisers. But when Timothy offers a homeless man a place to stay on a “do-gooder impulse,” Sloane can’t help but feel that things have gone a bit too far. While the homeless man settles in, and the couple continues to bicker, Felicia Reed Walker, a whirlwind of a neighbor with a big mouth and an even bigger pocketbook, keeps barging in and walking off with Sloane’s and Timothy’s stuff. Bleeding Hearts is a dark comedy about good intentions, negative consequences, and one middle class couple struggling not to completely fall apart.

SYNOPSIS: With a voice like whiskey and a laugh like pure joy, Janis Joplin took the music scene by storm. Simultaneously rough and vulnerable, Joplin was dubbed the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, proving music wasn’t just a man’s world anymore. Packed with classic songs (“Piece of My Heart, “Summertime,” “Mercedes Benz”), the show also shines the spotlight on trailblazers who influenced Janis – like Bessie Smith, Etta James and Aretha Franklin.
