Not A Chance – Synopsis
She just passed her bar with one of the highest scores ever. Nothing she learned in school really prepared her for this. She studied serious law. In this firm, the eclectic characters play as hard as they work. The attorneys would virtually fill a psychiatry dictionary, if analyzed and classified. Crazy, but not stupid, they are. The head of the firm seems to have walked out of a Dr. Seuss book, but a more compassionate person, you’ll never find.
She knows she doesn’t fit in. Nobody fits in. The only thing in common is they are the best lawyers in the country. At times, she feels like a little girl, hiding in the shadows, watching the goings on in an insane asylum. Other times she comes out and plays. Either way, this is the most fun she never prepared for.
How far can a mind stretch without breaking? You might be surprised.
Over There – Synopsis
Something has happened at CERN in Switzerland, the gigantic particle accelerator. A routine inspection has revealed an opening in the large haldron accelerator. Inspectors are initially baffled by two things: 1) There is no debris present from an explosion and 2) Functionality was not impeded, despite the opening. Inspectors who shined their flashlights into the hole were astonished to find that nothing inside was illuminated. When one tossed a coin into the opening, it disappeared for a few seconds and then popped right back out in the exact same trajectory from whence it was thrown.
When scientists arrived at the scene to check the reported anomaly, there was no opening, no hint of anything out of the order. There was no reason to delay the next experiment.
Once again, the identical experiment leads to the identical result. This time the newly installed camera reveals the opening to the control room. Two scientists and two inspectors dash off to witness the opening in person. This time it does not disappear. A scintillator reveals there is no radiation leak but once again, flashlights illuminate nothing. Could this be the black hole which had scientists worrying? Is this the beginning of the end of Earth as we know it?
Maybe it is not a black hole, but is a worm hole. Where does it lead? They plan to find out but will it be possible to safely return as the coin did? Testing. That’s what scientists do. First, is it safe to enter and secondly, where does it lead? Does it lead to a place far away in our universe or is it something else? Parallel universes are simply a theory but already antimatter has been proven to exist. Maybe they were not meant to discover the God particle.
Two scientists are chosen to enter the portal, created by themselves and their team have successfully retrieved lab rats, which were unharmed. They step into the portal and return in less than five minutes. They believe that they stepped in and immediately back. The saw nothing but blackness and yet they are somewhat euphoric and feel as if endorphins were firing, the kind following sex. There is no explanation and no memory, until their dreams start to reveal some details. Right now, all they know is that they want to go back again—immediately.

You Didn’t Get Me Yet – Synopsis
All the music in this musical is jazz or “jazzy”. Some is improvised, all has some improvisation in it, particularly in dance numbers but there is a twist in Act 2.
Danny is an entertainer and an excellent singer. He is in a show with his wife, Beth (a dancer), whom he knows is trying to kill him but he doesn’t know why. She has tried to give him food poisoning and has tried to shove him down the stairs in their home and more than once. Beth is the solo dancer in the show and puts up with Danny’s accusations because he is a little off at times. Fortunately, for the show, he is perfectly functional on stage but has bouts of paranoia and mild schizophrenia at home.
In the second act, Beth finally succeeds in pushing him down the stairs and Danny is convinced he is dead and watching the scene from outside his own body. He wakes up from this nightmare and discovers that he is very much alive and is also no longer mentally ill.
This act (#2) is demanding for the singers, dancers and musicians because it includes improvisation for 10 minutes, affecting the third act, with the actors having to transition into the third act. The exact same show never happens but the structure of the first and third acts hold the concept together each night of performance.
