Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and that his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

Please note that as with all Broadway Jr., titles, this production contains an entirely youth cast.

The Mugford Street Players presents A Picasso by Jeffrey Hatcher
On stage March 2 – 12, 2017

Co-produced by Greg Mancusi-Ungaro & John Fogle
Directed by John Fogle

A claustrophobic dance of deception

Art brushes with politics in A Picasso!

Set in a vault under the streets of German-occupied Paris in 1941, A Picasso pits the famous artist against Miss Fischer, a cultural attaché from Berlin, who must determine if paintings recently confiscated by the Nazis are real–or fake–Picassos. Only the artist can say for sure…but will he? A tango of sex, politics and power ensues…with a climactic twist.

A society renowned for fostering artistic freedom is suddenly under the jackboot of a paranoid culture at its most oppressive. In A Picasso, playwright Jeffrey Hatcher asks…what is the value of art in a world going to hell?

“Artful, remarkable and genuinely dramatic, with impressive sensitivity and wit.” —NY Daily News.
“Sex, art, Nazis, and a classy twentieth-century icon, all wrapped up like a tasty cultural burrito. Expertly done.” —Star-Ledger.
“A polished production with carefully sprung surprises.” —NY Times.
“An intense confrontational drama.” —Miami Herald.
