Sometime in the near future, two women and a polar bear find themselves trapped on a melting ice floe and strive to co-exist in a world of shrinking options. With birth, death, songs and movement. Developed with early support frome Voice & Vision, New Georges and Dixon Place.

Staying Afloat” parries the summer heat wave with the melancholy charm of a cooling drizzle… Lenora Champagne composes lovely speeches for her trio of actresses, and stages them in a pensive atmosphere that fits the subject matter… Though “Staying Afloat” is a play about grief-on the personal and global level-it warms your heart.”
-metromix new york

“It’s a meditation on displacement, on our attempts to control an ultimately uncontrollable environment, and our responsibilities to those who come after us… There is a real wisdom in this play, and immense imagination and stagecraft, none of which will surprise those familiar with this remarkable writer-director’s work.”

-New York Times

“The scenes weave in and out of each other with fluidity”

Lust. Betrayal. Air kisses. What happens when the Hater hates himself for faing in love? A speed-punk score with peculiar dance. A mise en scene for the glamorously debauched. An amphetamine fueled, post-postsimulacrum of the French classic. A comedy of manners for the rude.

“A kind of post-modern spin on the court of Louis XIV, with the foppish courtiers become fashionistas and the social jockeying translated into a modern set of power plays... Hater is thoroughly enjoyable and its style goes a long way.”

“Elements of Buggeln’s script do perfectly hit that spot of productive resonance between the periods... Hater is thoroughly enjoyable and its style goes a long way.”

“An entertaining night at the theater, full of eye candy, that reinterprets a fun tale”.

Female head of surgery Dr. Shepherd has a broken down pick-up, a booze cruise fling that just re-surfaced and a nursing staff with attitude. Featuring soul-searing songs, cryptic medical-speak and the occasional Coors Light. Hearts are burial deep here. A hospital show re-configured as a live musical dramedy Half Straddle-style.

"Nurses in New England is a fun, irreverent, and clever actress-driven Grey's Anatomy soap opera cabaret musical."



"Most successful is the way in which playwright Tina Satter manages to create a smart, comic mirror of the medical show."

A burning taxicab. A blind troubadour. A new roommate. Is this the end of the world? Or the beginning of something much worse? A minor lapse of courage triggers a breakdown of epic proportions as a young woman struggles with the realities (and unrealities) of New York City. With songs.
