A special Pride Month offering... MARC IN VENICE, June 16 - 28

A tag-team journey into truth interweaves three stories from three centuries. An angel guide proves helpful. For Marc in Venice in the 21st century, the help comes from Angelo.

Said of the recent premiere production:

“Run, don’t walk to see this production!! … the play was so well written.”

   “Serious, yet whimsical… both existential and personal. Delightful.”

Reminded me where hope is to be found.”

“An engaging meditation on the unchanging power of truth in the midst of the changes of history. It was funny and moving.”

Reminds us that Truth is still an honorable and worthwhile journey.”
