The story of the mysterious Fox sisters, three American girls from western New York who started the spiritualist movement in the 1860s and 70s. Hailed as leaders of a new religious movement, the sisters fall into dishonor and ruin. Mr. Splitfoot, the ghostly creation of the sisters, claimed that he possessed them and connected the sisters to the other side.

The Buffalo Nickels Medicine Show

Written and Composed by Kate Prascher and Mike Shapiro
Directed by Mike Shapiro and Mark Gallagher

The Buffalo Nickels Medicine Show sings and picks its way through the on- and off-stage exploits of its itinerant company, as they pine for and plot against each other and the audience that gathers each evening around their traveling wagons. The cast of characters performing variously on stage in The Buffalo Nickels Medicine Show include: “Leopold Finch”, shady purveyor of patent remedies, with a nose for Achilles heels; Finch’s horse “Mule”; “Mabel Morrow”, brassy, bewitching, intoxicated by a crowd; Mabel’s daughter “Bet”; and “Thomas” the rugged union organizer who plays his secrets close to the heart.
