Taylor Mac's dark comedy is the story of a 21st century prodigal son. A veteran with PTSD responds to his father's stroke by coming home to help care for him, but finds himself in the aftermath of another regime overthrow. His mother (formerly a battered wife) and his newly transitioned transgender sibling are finally thriving in the household that used to be ruled by dad. HIR (a gender pronoun pronounced "here") is a metaphor for both gender and place, and the play will have audiences crying in laughter and sympathy as they attempt to discover if we can all adapt to live here, now.
"Mac [...] isn't so much remaking the world in his own image as he is addressing subjects that remain, remarkably, underplayed on the American stage: what bodies mean and what stories women are allowed to tell or perform." - The New Yorker
"A crackling production of a remarkable, audacious, uproarious black comedy with a daring combination of realism and madcap absurdity." - Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

A native of Texas, Todrick is a singer, songwriter, dancer, actor, choreographer, playwright, costume designer, Broadway performer, American Idol finalist, star of his own self-titled MTV Show and viral YouTube sensation with over 2 million subscribers and 400 million views. Dancing since the young age of 9, Hall is a classically trained ballet dancer who has traveled the world performing with Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, The Radio City Christmas Spectacular, Royal Caribbean & Holland America Cruise lines, Walt Disney World and Disneyland’s California Adventure. His Broadway credits include Oprah Winfrey’s “The Color Purple” and The 2010 Tony Award Winning Musical “Memphis,” and most recently his box office record breaking run as Lola in “Kinky Boots.”

He has teamed up with campaigns such as The Trevor Project, The City of West Hollywood, HIV Equal and HIV Beats to help raise awareness of several issues within the LGBTQ community.
“The Wizard of Oz has always been my favorite story, and I am ecstatic to share with you my most precious creation. Thank you Lin-Manuel, Walt Disney and Beyoncé for the inspiration. This journey has been a long and winding yellow brick road, but I thank my fans, friends and family for their never ending support. Thank you to my amazing team, my mother, brother, father, stepfather Corey, Pat Carthel for opening my eyes to a world that was not black and white, my agents at UTA, my manager Steven Grossman, my best friends (Chester, Vonzell, Blair, Sheena and Ashley)... Without you all I would never have found my home in YouTube, and there truly is no place like home. I would like to dedicate each and every performance of Straight Outta Oz to my sweet Grandmother “Ethel” and my good friend Jill #2650, may you both watch proudly from Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”
Alton Brown Live
"Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science", the follow-up to the smash "Edible Inevitable" tour, will hit the road in 2016. Fans can expect all-new everything including songs, multimedia presentations, talk-show antics, and bigger and better potentially dangerous food demonstrations.
Brown has a knack for mixing together a perfect base of science, music and food into two hours of pure entertainment. Critics and fans alike have raved about the interactive components of Brown's shows. He promises "plenty of new therapy inducing opportunities during our audience participation segments. "I don't want to give too much away, but this time we're going to play a little game while we're at it. Plus, you'll see things I've never been allowed to do on TV." He's also contemplating more sophisticated protective gear for folks in the first few rows...just in case things get messy...again.
