A timely story about compromising moral values for the sake of getting rich quick. A Cuban man keeps his promise to bring a friend’s son to the United States. After the young immigrant gets a real taste of hard labor, he decides to accept a job offer as a director of a medical clinic conscious of the job’s dubious nature. He begins to enjoy the benefits of quick earned cash, but his world is turned upside down when he is arrested by the FBI accusing him of Medicaid fraud. After being released on probation, he realizes that he must make a difficult decision, whether to stay in the country and face prosecution or return to his former life in Cuba. Generational, political, and moral differences collide in this modern day drama written and directed by Yoshvani Medina.
“When you get back to your capital, you can tell them how people live in Russia, ’cause they don’t have the faintest idea.” -- Black Milk
In Black Milk, Lyovchik and Poppet, a small-time crook and his heavily pregnant, chain-smoking, lollipop-sucking wife, descend on a post-Communist wasteland, swindling villagers out of their savings. The young couple sit stranded in a remote train station and as the night persists, the strange, cruel, and whimsical world of their homeland teaches them a lesson.
LEAP OF FAITH features a roof-raising new score by eight-time Oscar®-winning composer Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors).The creative team also includes bookwriters Janus Cercone and Tony®-winner Warren Leight (Side Man); Grammy®-winning lyricist Glenn Slater (Tangled); choreographer Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys); and Christopher Ashley, director of the Tony®-winning Best Musical Memphis.

Based on Julia Álvarez’s popular novel, the martyred butterflies come to vibrant life in a warm, brilliant, and dramatic production by the talented duo – playwright Caridad Svich and director José Zayas– that brought us the critically acclaimed production of Isabel Allende’s “The House of the Spirits” in 2009.
