This unique non-sale exhibition pairs the bold zen-like black and white abstractions of Franz Kline (1910-1962), the New York Abstract Expressionist, with a collection of comics by various cartoonists, curated from the Wayne Thiebaud Foundation. Kline’s fast-paced calligraphic brush stroke and interest in positive/negative space is paired alongside the “daily” of comics whose simplification of physiognomic types in emblematic settings continue the grand tradition of picture-making.

Yes, Shaun Martin has a natural gift that has been evident since he began playing drums in church at the age of four. Yes, his mother had the vision to arrange piano instruction from Carolyn Campbell and guide him on his path. Yes, he has several Grammys from his work with Kirk Franklin and the gospel powerhouse God’s Property and yes, he has a Grammy that crowns his many years with jazz fusion phenomenon Snarky Puppy. But audiences will not find this information in discussion with this gently powerful man because he wears none of this on his sleeve.

Shaun Martin has been playing, creating, and collaborating for most of his life, yet his contributions go much further than just playing. When audiences move through the projects that Shaun has been a part of they can feel his style and influence; they can sense his presence throughout the compositions. Shaun’s willingness and ability to be a subtle part of each band have allowed him be part of the very foundation.

Dark. Literate. Mildly classy. Plus lasers. And swearing. Squad Patrol is Comedy Spot’s live, main-stage sketch comedy show, similar to Saturday Night Live and Key and Peele.

Enter a world of stories told through jokes: cat detectives; sexual tension on construction job sites; the horror of bats and banana slugs; Casio keyboards; bears and lady boys; time machines; Mr. Trollywhiskers; judicious use of nerd references; Chuck E. Cheese flashbacks; the pathos of good grammar; space hamsters. All theatrically expressed through flamboyant costumes, cardboard props, original songs and videos, sound effects and gratuitous spot-lighting, and of course, verbose language replete with the swears.

An all-female darkly comic southern drama about women on the verge, art and the power of human connection. After a tornado barrels through a North Alabama town leaving nothing but death and destruction, only June and her wisecracking pet goat Weezy live to tell the tale. When Alice, a prominent photographer, arrives to take pictures of June’s scars, every living soul on the farm is tipped to the breaking point in this epic tale of life after death.

Alabaster is the largest Rolling World Premiere in NNPN's history with 11 productions being produced in the 2019/20 Season Nation-wide. In her Capital Stage debut, Kristin Clippard will direct this 2018 David Calicchio Emerging American Playwright Prize Winner.

Yes, Shaun Martin has a natural gift that has been evident since he began playing drums in church at the age of four. Yes, his mother had the vision to arrange piano instruction from Carolyn Campbell and guide him on his path. Yes, he has several Grammys from his work with Kirk Franklin and the gospel powerhouse God’s Property and yes, he has a Grammy that crowns his many years with jazz fusion phenomenon Snarky Puppy. But audiences will not find this information in discussion with this gently powerful man because he wears none of this on his sleeve.

Shaun Martin has been playing, creating, and collaborating for most of his life, yet his contributions go much further than just playing. When audiences move through the projects that Shaun has been a part of they can feel his style and influence; they can sense his presence throughout the compositions. Shaun’s willingness and ability to be a subtle part of each band have allowed him be part of the very foundation.

Dark. Literate. Mildly classy. Plus lasers. And swearing. Squad Patrol is Comedy Spot’s live, main-stage sketch comedy show, similar to Saturday Night Live and Key and Peele.

Enter a world of stories told through jokes: cat detectives; sexual tension on construction job sites; the horror of bats and banana slugs; Casio keyboards; bears and lady boys; time machines; Mr. Trollywhiskers; judicious use of nerd references; Chuck E. Cheese flashbacks; the pathos of good grammar; space hamsters. All theatrically expressed through flamboyant costumes, cardboard props, original songs and videos, sound effects and gratuitous spot-lighting, and of course, verbose language replete with the swears.
