The A-Ha Moments
Everything has to start somewhere.
The New Year brings with it a start of something unknown. What are you looking for now? What hopes and dreams have been on the burner since childhood, what never began? And what realizations have you come to along the way that have made you less naive than in the beginning?
This is the night we look at beginnings, good and bad - the seeds of things, thoughts, ideas, and events, that started out small and became big enough to steer your life in a particular direction. Perhaps it's a romance, or a moment of decision that changed your life or someone else's. Maybe you have a story about how something started out one way, and ended very differently from the way you thought it would. Whatever your story, we'll run it through the metaphor machine and see what comes out in song, dance, and drama as your jaw drops in astonishment.
