"In Your Arms" At Powerhouse

  In Your Arms is a new play with love-themed vignettes written by Douglas Carter Bean, Nilo Cruz, Christopher Durang, Carrie Fisher, David Henry Hwang, Rajiv Joseph, Terrence McNally, Marsha Norman, Lynn Nottage and Alfred Urhy.

Christopher Gattelli, the Tony Award-winning choreographer of Newsies and South Pacific, and composer Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime, Once on This Island) bring the vignettes to life through music and dance - using the stories penned by the playwrights but not their words.

In Your Arms is the second Mainstage show of this summer’s New York Stage and Film Powerhouse Theatre season at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY.

Christopher Gattelli joins us.

A Musical Inspired by the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Company at Powerhouse

New York Stage and Film and Vassar College present A Musical Inspired by the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Company as their second Martel Musical this Powerhouse season.

Trey Swieskowski, an idealistic young Brooklynite, fantasizes about becoming a superhero. Meanwhile, Astrolass (AKA “Astroman’s daughter”) is desperate to pack in her cape and escape the burden of her father’s legacy. When the two of them cross paths, they hatch a plan to change their lives forever.

Director Michael Mayer returns to Powerhouse to develop this exciting new musical and he joins us along with Peter Lerman (music and lyrics) and Simon Rich (book).
