  3. World Premiere: 2004 Curtain Call's Dressing Room Theatre, Stamford, CT
    Book & Lyrics by William Squier / Music by Jeffrey Lodin
    Top of the Heap is an edgy parable about the dawn of modern showbiz set to a simmering score of popular jazz standards. It’s New York City, 1955, and a down-and-out nightclub comic will stop at nothing to land a spot on live television’s hit variety program Edgar Callahan’s Top of the Heap. But, when his partner runs afoul of the show’s powerful host, he discovers just how high a price he’ll have to pay.

  5. This adaptation (by Peter Barbieri, Jr. and Debra Lee Faila) of Gilbert & Sullivan's operetta, The Pirates of Penzance, takes place in a failing film studio just outside of London in the year 1927. The studio is losing money and the cast of their last great film epic has walked out due to lack of salary. In a stroke of brilliance, the producer hires the company of the now defunct Music Hall Royale to shoot the film in the new medium of SOUND. Can he finish the film in time before the bank forecloses and shuts down the studio for good? All the great G & S songs you know and love with a fabulously funny new book. Great for the whole family.
