The music of the Mahavishnu Orchestra comes to life at this unique show, featuring the master talents of Dan Beacock guitar, Adam Bowman drums, Thomas Hammerton keyboards, Jerzy Kapłanek violin and Tom Nagy bass.  Recreating the rockin’ sound and raucous feel of the original line-up of this seminal progressive jazz fusion quintet, that featured  the superlative guitarist John McLaughlin, Vital Transformation performs the complex, groove-filled music you thought you’d never hear live again. The music, the fire, the mystery – join us for this rare presentation!  Special guest opening performer: bassist extraordinaire Jason Raso!

Punch Up

Written & Directed by Kat Sandler

It’s a hard world out there: Pat’s comedy career is dead in the water after his wife stole his material and divorced him. Everyone Brenda has ever loved has died in remarkably unpleasant ways…she’s pretty depressed about it. Duncan has fallen in love with her at first sight and is convinced that if he can make the Saddest Girl in the World laugh, then she’ll fall in love with him too. Needless to say, when Duncan kidnaps Pat to help him win Brenda’s heart, things get a bit complicated.
