EXISTENTIAL QUESTIONS OF THE 21ST
Book, Music, and Lyrics by
At "ExistenceCon," a two-day festival where
attendees are hopeful that humanity's sad existence is coming to an
end, a group of entrepreneurs, artists, and alien-worshippers--not
to mention one sentient computer--have to come to terms with their
preconceived notions of life and progress. Light refreshments and
tears in the fabric of reality to follow.
THE STORE UNDER THE PORTICO
Music by Robert Farruggia
Book and Lyrics by Robert
Farruggia and Cristina Farruggia
Mantova, at the height of the German occupation, Renata Baraldi finds
herself taking over a fabric store when its Jewish owners are forced
into hiding. In a country torn in two, where Nazis shoot Italians at
random at the same time as the Allies drop bombs, nothing is as
simple as it seems, and love—of country, of family, of neighbor—is
the only thing that can be counted on. Inspired by a true story.
