"It tells of how a lone holdout at a murder trial, Juror 8, staunchly standing by his reasonable doubt in face of underwhelming evidence, confronts eleven other jurors who, convinced that a 16-year-old boy is guilty of killing his father, are ready to condemn him to what in 1954 was a mandatory death sentence. Slowly, without hectoring rhetoric or even firm belief in the boy’s innocence, he argues the case for further questioning; very gradually and in different ways, the others’ positions begin to change." -NY Magazine.

"The setting is a home beauty parlor in a fictional parish in Louisiana.The plot focuses on the relationship of six women of varying ages and their strength that they get from their own souls as well as from their support group of friends. This play shows the power of women who are often seen as delicate flowers – magnolias – but are as tough as nails – steel. Steel Magnolias were also a euphemism for women’s hair curlers. Like barbershops, beauty parlors are often places where women can talk frankly, and often their stylist acts like a therapist, much like a bartender at the local pub." -DC Metro Theatre Arts

"Disney’s The Little Mermaid is the story of Ariel, a young mermaid princess who feels out of place in the ocean and misunderstood by her powerful father Triton, the Sea King. When she rescues sea-loving Prince Eric after he is thrown from his ship in a storm, Ariel falls in love and determines that she will one day be “part of his world.” Learning of her hopeless situation, the power-hungry Sea Witch, Ursula, tricks Ariel into trading her voice—and possibly her soul—for a pair of legs and a chance at love." -The Column
