    American Masterwork, Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie opens the Masterworks Theater Company's Inaugural Season with the universal story of a Southern single mother striving to secure a future for her two grown children. While her cripplingly shy daughter escapes to a world of glass, her aspiring writer son dreams of a world beyond the confines of St. Louis. Any hope of salvation is pinned on the visit of a "Gentleman Caller" for the girl, but it seems he may only shatter their fragile fantasies.

    Muse Match, an evening that seeks to answer the question, "What happens when 18 composers go on a blind date with 18 singers?," will be presented Feb. 24, 2014, at 11:30 PM at 54 Below. Produced by Bill Coyne, the evening will benefit the Boys and Girls Club. "I have paired 18 composers with 18 singers they have never worked with," Coyne told Playbill.com. "Out of a musical theater blind-date where the pairs discuss their strengths and weaknesses, passions, fears, the composers write a song specifically for and inspired by the singer." Composers include Daniel B. Mate, Sam Salmond, Rob Rokicki, Julia Meinwald, Nathan Dame, Alexander Sage Oyen, Paul Fujimoto, Drew Fornorola, Caitlin Saylor Stephens, Eric Loehr, Nate Weida, Nikko Benson, Caleb Hoyer, Will Larche, Brett Macias, Eli Katz Zoller, David Alan Thornton and Andy Monroe. Performers include Eric William Morris, Jillian Louis, Kilty Reidy, Preston Ellis, Mimi Robinson, Demi Fragale, Paul Louis Lessard, Erik Liberman, David Marshall, Analisa Leaming, Victoria Huston-Elem, David Johnson, Jacob L. Smith, Scott Guthrie, Katie Madison, Zachary Prince and Julia Burrows. There is a $20 cover charge and a $20 food/beverage minimum.
