Based on the ancient Greek play, The Danaids, Big Love tells the madcap story of 50 brides who flee their 50 grooms. The ensuing battle royale of the sexes involves helicopters, pop songs, dancing and murder. Big Love is disarmingly funny, hip and a dazzlingly theatrical exploration of the power of love.

Called the “most notorious and controversial play of the decade,” The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs is part gonzo journalism and part autobiography. Hilarious and razor sharp, writer Mike Daisey tells the story of his personal odyssey to the site of Apple’s factory in China, a captivating journey into the heart of technology and consumerism.
