The musical crashes physics and love into one another as Albert and Mileva fall madly in love and struggle to survive together while Albert risks everything to find a perfect Unified Field Theory of the universe. REBEL GENIUS is a contemporary exploration into the heart of two icons torn between great ambition and passionate love for the people in their lives.THE RABBIT QUEENMusic Laura WatkinsLyrics Jaime Lyn Beatty and Laura WatkinsBook Ilana GordonOnce upon a time...The world was hoodwinked by a poor illiterate woman named Mary Toft. The year was 1726 and over the course of several months, Mary managed to fool the finest doctors, scientists, and nobles into believing she could give birth to rabbits. Delivering on that promise, Mary performed the mesmerizing spectacle 17 times over, securing her place in history as The Rabbit Queen. That is, until one fateful day when she was brought down by a single kernel of evidence. The story of Marys viral hoax and subsequent cancellation is one that touches on themes of bodily autonomy, womens reproductive freedom, gender and class roles, and the dangers of blindly trusting authority figures and the media.ROACHMusic & Lyrics Zach SpoundA Rock FantasiaInspired by Kafkas MetamorphosisIt is about the friendship between a Jewish man and a queer woman at the outset of World War 2 in Austria, and the community they bring together for the purpose of collective liberation in the face of evil and fascism.
