To the head baker of Sweet Eats Bake Shop, gluten-free, sugar-free, and vegan desserts should be every bit as flavorsome as their sugar-filled counterparts. She whips ups all her tasty treats from scratch, and instead of relying on chemically derived sugar substitutes, she swaps in organic agave nectar, honey, and fruit juices, and replaces vegetable oil with pumpkin or applesauce. To further refine her wide variety of tasty treats—including cupcakes, moon pies, cookies, and fudge—she mixes in unsalted creamery butter and fresh-fruit purees from local farmers. Her mouthwatering baked goods hit the road in their food truck and can sweeten special occasions, such as birthdays, weddings, or graduations.

Shrouded in the winter’s frigid cold and the Northern Lights’ ethereal beauty, the residents of the titular small town in Almost, Maine fall in and out of love during nine loosely linked vignettes performed by Sinclair’s ensemble cast. Written by John Cariani, the play thawed Off Broadway hearts six years ago in a debut that drew the New York Sun to herald it as a tale of “love in the time of frostbite.” Each of the short pieces chronicles two characters who lament love lost or revel in budding romance and long johns magically overflowing with $5 bills. In one scene, a young woman carries her broken heart in a balled-up paper bag she clutches to her chest. In another, a married couple lobs verbal jabs and emotional roundhouses at each other while looking for a missing shoe. Many of the mini plays skewer reality with a fantastical lance, the enchanted devices often directing the characters' precarious ventures of the heart. The mysticism of Almost, Maine is further reflected by the colorful history of Blair Hall Theatre, rife with supernatural stories, ghost sightings, and actors with sparkling smiles that cast no reflections.
