Hana is a pop-powerhouse singer-songwriter out of Boston. Described as powerful, passionate, and filled with “emotional nakedness and elegant musicianship” [The Deli Magazine] – and she’s on a mission: To spread self-love as far and wide as she can through music and story-telling. “I am a proud Survivor, a Thriver, and a Mental Illness Warrior. I believe self-love is the answer and music is one of the most powerful tools we have to heal and connect. I’m obsessed with sunflowers & elephants, and I really like tea.”

Crimes Of The Heart (April 26-28th at 6:00PM)
by Beth Henley
(Purchase Tickets HERE)
Doors & Dinner: 6:00PM
(Performance to Follow)
Directed by: Joy Derov
Photography: Kate Brindley Photography
The scene is Hazlehurst, Mississippi, where the three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of the family patriarch, their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital. Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried at thirty and facing diminishing marital prospects; Meg, the middle sister, who quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back after a failed singing career on the West Coast; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach. Their troubles, grave and yet, somehow, hilarious, are highlighted by their priggish cousin, Chick, and by the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while helpless not to fall in love with her. In the end the play is the story of how its young characters escape the past to seize the future—but the telling is so true and touching and consistently hilarious that it will linger in the mind long after the curtain has descended.
