Venue: ( Theater For the New City)
Theater For the New City
Producer: ( Catherine Cabeen)
Catherine Cabeen
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Give Me More suggests that our over-consumption, and the environmental destruction that it creates, is in large part driven by our desire to fit into culturally constructed gender roles. How much of our consumption is actually serving us - and how much is the result of our obedience to a system that wants to fit us into predetermined patterns and roles? Give Me More plays out in three parts; Glitter in the Gutter, The American Koan, and ...yet, again. Glitter in the Gutter, is a comedic duet created and performed by Catherine Cabeen and Kristina Berger, which embodies the glamour and grit that weaves together the lives of two aging performers. This American Koan, is a work for seven dancers that highlights the intersectionality of gender roles, over-consumption and environmental destruction. Through a score of original music and text, drag performance, highly kinetic, sensuous movement, and an interactive set made of 200lbs of recycled clothing, This American Koan asks us to consider what we consume, and why. This American Koan features choreography by Catherine Cabeen, music by Mark Katsaounis, lighting by Philip Trevino, and performances by Catherine Cabeen, Nya Bowman, Darby Canessa, Hector Cerna, Sarah Lustbader, Kathryn Maclellan, and Trebien Pollard. …yet again, a solo choreographed and performed by Catherine Cabeen to the music of Westin Portillo, is a rallying cry. The work embodies the quest for personal agency, which we must claim in order to advocate for ourselves and each other, in a world where we are so often told who to be and what to want.

 Prague, 1912 (the Savoy Café Yiddish Theatre)

Venue: ( Theater For the New City)
Theater For the New City
Producer: ( Theater for the New City)
Theater for the New City
City: New York

Additional Notes:
A vagabond acting company comes to Prague: it's Jak Lowy and his leading lady, Mme. Trassik. Lowy is a veteran actor who has put stars in her eyes and they are lovers.  When they act together, it's magic, but their repertoire is a shambles and they subsist more by selling baked sweet potatoes than by selling tickets to their unconventional versions of classic plays.  What emerges is a backstage comedy of their love-hate relationship and their entrapment of a sympathetic local writer named Gregor Samsa -- a joyride through this trio's creative process that is a celebration of everyone's love for the theater.  Theater for the New City, 155 First Ave, will premiere the work November 9 to 26, directed by George Ferencz.Ferencz guided playwright Hauser in the evolution of the play, which was written between 2009 and her death in 2011. The characters Lowy and Trassik are loosely inspired by the Yiddish Theater figures Itzhak Lowy, a prominent Polish Yiddish Theater actor who died in the Treblinka extermination camp, and Mania Tshissik, a member of his troupe.  They were both bullheaded, constantly at loggerheads and obstinate with each other. Jenne Vath plays Mme. Trassik, John Barilla plays Lowy and Jason Howard plays Gregor Samsa.  Alex Wilborn provides vintage WWI yiddish songs on the cornet. Set and lighting dsign are by Mark Marcante. Costume design is by three-time Emmy winner Sally Lesser. Sound design is by Obie-winner Tim Schellenbaum.  Special Props are designed by Lytza Colon. Stage Manager is Karen Pontius.Playwright Lu Hauser (1924-2011) was a classical actress who turned to playwriting.  Her works have been produced at EST, The Cherry Lane, The 92nd Street Y, The Public, The Actors Theater of Louisville, Intiman Theater of Seattle, the New Stage Theater of Jackson, Mississippi, and The Goodman Theater in Chicago. Her Lincoln on Hester Street was awarded the first place prize by the American Alliance for Theater and Education and was produced at Theater For the New City, directed by Ferencz, in 2009.  Her Not Dead Yet, New Parachutes and The Client (a.k.a The New Montana) were produced in the inaugural season of The 42nd Street Workshop.  Her other plays include The Anton Series, One in a Million (a.k.a. King of Coney Island Frank), Boardwalk and Crane in Love (a.k.a.Sadie). George Ferencz (director) is best known for his direction of plays by Sam Shepard.  Recognized by the New York Times as one of the foremost directorial interpreters of Shepard, he has directed landmark productions of Angel City, Back Bog Beast Bait, Cowboy Mouth (in Concert), Suicide in B-Flat and The Tooth of the Crime.  His TNC productions include Lincoln on Hester Street, Fear Itself, Piecework, Delicate Feelings and The Space Show, the first TNC production at 155 First Avenue.  As a resident director at La MaMa, he has directed over 30 productions including most recently the blues opera Conjur Woman in New York and Rome. The actors of this play are drawn from The Experimentals, an ensemble which for many years has performed the Matchbox Series of ten-minute plays in TNC's Lower East Side Festival of the Arts.  The troupe was formed during George Ferencz's 16-year tenure as Founding Director and Curator of La MaMa's Experimental Playreading Series. In 2007, Ferencz directed a festival of six plays from the series, entitled EXPERIMENTA!.  The core actors of that festival (John-Andrew Morrison, Jason Howard and Jenne Vath) spawned The Experimentals.  The troupe's productions to date also include Kalinovik by Yasmine Rana, the workshop of The Dutch Play by Owa and an Owa Memorial, From the Vault, concert readings of seven plays from the 60's.  Included were three plays by C.S. Hanson which the Experimentals commissioned and produced: Where Were You When I Was Coming? (published in 2013 The Best Ten-Minute Plays), Prick Perfect (published in 2014 The Best Ten-Minute Plays) and Double D.
