The first full-fledged show produced by Red Boat is Enter Love, a musical about the nature of romantic relationships in the first decade of the 21st century. It is set in an international airport, located in a large city somewhere in the mid-west.

Lashes Off premiered at the 2013 IndyFringe Festival, and the characters were created from the lives of the original four stars.
