 Artaud Artaud (World Premiere)
 

 
Venue: ( Theater For the New City)

Producer: ( Theater for the New City's Dream Up Festival 2015)
Theater for the New City's Dream Up Festival 2015
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Artaud Artaud is a cruel not-masterpiece in one act written by Matthew Minnicino, directed by Jake Beckhard and perfomed by Artilliers performing company. The play is a comitragic carnival that centers around the godfather of the avant-garde theater, Antonin Artaud. It is a merciless parody of the sensibilities of Artaud's manifesto Theatre of Cruelty and a sympathetic, semi-obsessive portrait of its greatest proponent and his somewhat dual nature. It is a faithful biopic written into a biting satire, yet is at its heart an homage to the messiness of creativity.Playwright – Matthew MinnicinoDirector – Jake BeckhardChoreographer – Allison SchielerScenic Design – Bryn HerdrichSound Design – Jorge MoralesLighting Design – Elizabeth StewartCostumes Design – Gigi Hernandez

 BOY GETS GIRL
 
What happens when boys and girls don't do as they're told?
 
Venue: ( Clarion Theatre)
Clarion Theatre
Producer: ( The Seeing Place Theater)
The Seeing Place Theater
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Variety says: Rebecca Gilman offers up a tale of Gotham singledom you won't be seeing any time soon on 'Sex and the City.' A disturbing chiller about a woman whose life of accomplishment is quickly destroyed by a disturbed admirer, the play works powerfully at its most basic level…

Theresa Bedell is a successful reporter in New York who loves her work and the life she has made for herself. A relationship with a man would complete the picture and so she agrees to go on a blind date with a friend of a friend. Tony is attractive and funny, but Theresa isn't sure, and after a second date she's convinced they have nothing in common and sees no point in continuing the relationship. Tony, though, thinks otherwise. What at first seems like persistence on his part grows into obsession, and Theresa's annoyance with Tony turns to terror as he begins to threaten her and those around her. Ultimately, Theresa must fight to save herself from being erased by Tony's actions which call into question the assumptions at the very heart of romantic pursuit.

This play is being presented in rotating repertory with BOYS' LIFE. By offering these two plays together we're engaging our audience in a deep and multi-faceted conversation about gender relations in the United States, says TSP Artistic Director, Brandon Walker. These stories explore what happens when men and women buck the social trends - will society accept anything less than the stereotypes it propagates? Get your tickets to BOYS' LIFE here.

Starring Erin Cronican* (Theresa), John D'Arcangelo (Les), Virginia Gregory (Beck), Einar Gunn* (Howard), Emily Newhouse (Harriet), Daniel Michael Perez (Tony), and Brandon Walker* (Mercer). (*=member of AEA).

 BOYS' LIFE
 
What happens when boys and girls don't do as they're told?
 
Venue: ( Clarion Theatre)
Clarion Theatre
Producer: ( The Seeing Place Theater)
The Seeing Place Theater
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Told in a series of fast-paced, sharply etched scenes, the play traces the misadventures of three former college buddies now seeking to make their way in the big city—and with various women of their acquaintance. Moving along briskly, with its mood of satirical humor brilliantly sustained, the play dissects and anatomizes the male narcissism—and protracted adolescence—which characterizes its protagonists and, in the end, makes it hilariously clear that it is actually the women who possess the qualities of manhood and maturity which their deluded lovers so desperately lay claim to. …BOYS' LIFE is the most balanced and intelligent comment on the battle of the sexes I've seen in a long time… —The New Yorker.

 Broadway Bound
 
Expectedly funny and unexpectedly moving.
 
Venue: ( Nutley Little Theatre)
Nutley Little Theatre
Producer: ( Nutley Little Theatre)
Nutley Little Theatre
City: Nutley

Additional Notes:
The final entry in Neil Simons autobiographical coming-of-age trilogy, Broadway Bound examines the relationship between younger brother Eugene (Simons alter ego) and older brother Stan as they attempt to break into show business as comedy writers, while also dealing with the disintegration of their parents marriage of some 30 years. Add eccentric relatives, and the result is a dark comedy that is alternately hilarious and heart-wrenching.
