The Renaissance was a grand revolution in thinking, a new awareness of the individual's potential as a reasoning, creative, and possible heroic being. It is a process of mind expansion that grew out of medieval times and has continued right up to the present day. The Renaissance part of our lives -in many ways, still colors our behavior and our judgment. 
The Renaissance intercedes how we present theatre even now in the 21st century. 

There can be no great accomplishment without risk. Without risk, there can be no growth.

Neil Armstrong 


Synopsis: An original comedy-drama about the lives and loves of the staff and guests at a Memphis hotel. Love birds and hotel owner Ryan Winston and his manager Rebecca Fox are the perfect team to run the hotel with efficiency and flair. Their relationship is complicated by the arrival of talent scout and her assistant Brandi Thomas, who are looking for a male model for their clothing line, DAPPER DUDES. The pair set their eyes on Ryan Winston, who is flattered by their attention. Meanwhile, vegan chef Latham Lainer faces a personal crisis when he learns that his wife has gambled away their savings and left them both homeless.

In the world of high society and luxury, drama is always lurking in the corner with socialite Vanessa Vanderveede, once a rising star in the social scene, her life took a turn for the worse after her husband Mike end up in jail and her cosmetic company started to crumble. Now desperate to find someone who will buy it and save it from financial ruin, and with an alternative motive up her sleeve, Vanessa  checks into the hotel where potential buyer Sally Reed happens to be staying. Unbeknownst to Vanessa, Sally has her own family issues, with her niece's poet Asha Reed and her envious big sister Kathy. 

As the season approaches, stubborn attitudes threaten to intervene the joy of the Christmas season.  Will Sally nieces feud stop her from acquiring Erotic Cosmetics? Will Latham recover his finances? Will Vanessa hidden objectives succeed. Can Ryan and Rebecca love stay solid.
