STU for SILVERTON

Morgan will be playing Stu in a developmental workshop of Stu for Silverton at Christopher Newport University's Ferguson Center for the Arts in Newport News, VA.  

Directed by Andrew Russell, the Broadway-aimed musical is inspired by Stu Rasmussen, who, in 2008, was elected the first openly trans mayor in America in Silverton, Oregon. It features a book by Peter Duchan (Dogfight) with music and lyrics by Breedlove.

FRANCOIS & THE REBELS

Morgan will be playing Marie Claire Dessalines, known as the Empress of Haiti and wife of Jean-Jacques Dessalines, in the premiere presentation of Jaime Cepero's new musical, Francois and the Rebels. 

The year? 1791. The place? The flourishing French colony of Saint Domingue. A rag tag group made up of rebellious slaves and second class citizens gather to question their place in society. Armed with nothing but their wits and prowess - and lead by a fearsomely intelligent man named Francois -  they tactfully overthrow three separate armies from France, Spain, and Britain - rocking the world as we know it. These actions eventually lead them to establish the first successful slave rebellion in history resulting in the second independent country in the Americas - the nation of Haiti.

With a pulsing punk rock score, and a story pulled from historic events full of love, loss, and deception - Francois & The Rebels is not your typical musical. Our goal is to tell an important and forgotten history through the lens of an immersive high energy rock and roll experience. Join us in the rebellion.

REVOLUTION HANGOUT:
Anthems of Anxiety & Resistance from the Dan Fishback Songbook


Thursday, May 18 |  Musical theater probably won't topple fascism, but it couldn't hurt! At the dawn of this terrifying new era, playwright/performer Dan Fishback presents a night of songs from The Material World Trilogy -- a series of plays about Jewish resistance and Jewish trauma, spanning two millennia from the ancient Hebrew revolt against the Greek Empire to Jewish opposition to Israeli apartheid. Joined by a coterie of stars from Broadway and beyond including Chip Zien, Molly Pope and Cole Escola, Revolution Hangout will feature music from The Material World (named one of the "Top 10 shows of 2012" by Time Out New York), and mark the debut of songs from the trilogy's upcoming final chapter, Rubble Rubble. Revolution Hangout is directed by Stephen Brackett with musical direction from Matthew Aument.
