(Musical, Grandon Studio) PG-13

Director: Leslie Charipar

Music Director: Janelle Lauer


Created by the team that brought you [title of show], Now. Here. This. is a new musical tackling life’s big questions with inimitable humor and humanity. The show follows the evolution and adventures of four friends in a natural history museum as they journey through time–from the present day museum, to the past, and back again. Inspired by various exhibits (bees, reptiles, early man, ancient civilizations and outer space), the foursome shares their stories about friendship, hoarding, hiding, laughing, living, dying and middle school in an attempt to step directly into that elusive present moment…into the Now. Here. This.


“A blend of good humor and good feeling with an audience-embracing brio that never flags.” -Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

“A delightful combination of childlike giddiness and adult self-deprecation!” -New Jersey Newsroom
