And Then You Die (How I Ran a Marathon in 26.2 Years), Written and Performed by David Hansen, Directed by Alison Garrigan

What races through a man’s mind as he runs for his life? Hit the road in this comic and revealing solo piece about a cartoonist’s pursuit of the finish line in the Big Race – dashing through relationships, hurdling over heartbreak, and making his way through the Five Boroughs in a record quarter of a century…and time is running out. Remember: It’s not a solo performance, it’s a Marathon.

Claus for a Moment, Written and Performed by Jeff Glover, Directed by Dan Folino

His busy season is over and Santa is taking some time out to set the record straight. Jeff Glover portrays the not-so-jolly, not-so-old, not-really-an-elf in this semi-comic monologue on the hazards of mythology. How can a person have magic and yet not be a god? Leave the little believers at home!

Two solo performances written by David Hansen and Jeff Glover
