Two Nights and Three Days
Book, Music and Lyrics by Kim Jinhyoung & Marcus Perkins
Jowon believes that her dreams of becoming the first female four-star general in South Korea’s history are dashed when she is placed in command of the “fire battalion,” a group of the laziest, most ragtag soldiers in her camp. As they confront injuries, rival officers, and an unprecedented threat of war with North Korea, Jowon and her soldiers finally unite in an effort to win the camp’s first-ever talent show…by writing a musical. Set to a melodic score with Korean and pop influences, Two Nights And Three Days is a testament to the necessity of finding joy in even the most dire of circumstances.
The presentation will feature performances by Ashley Chiu (Once Upon A One More Time), Zachary Noah Piser (Dear Evan Hansen), Jorrel Javier (The Lightning Thief) and Jonny Lee Jr. (Gold Mountain).
Two Nights And Three Days was developed with the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center during the National Music Theater Conference in 2020.

Built For This
Book by Sara Cooper
Music & Lyrics by Kira Stone
Inspired by the true stories of gymnast survivors who uncovered decades of sexual abuse within the gymnastics and Olympic worlds, Built For This has music and lyrics by Kira Stone and book by Sara Cooper (The Memory Show). After a potentially career-ending injury, the treatment that Olympic hopeful gymnast Kelcie receives sends her deep down the rabbit hole of the rampant sexual abuse at the core of competitive gymnastics, forcing her to decide what’s more important—the truth, or her Olympic dream.
The presentation will feature performances by Jane Bruce (Jagged Little Pill, The Other Josh Cohen), Erica Ito, Brianna Stoute and co-writer Kira Stone.
Built For This was featured in the New Works Series at Playwrights’ Horizons in 2021.
