155 Through The Roof
Thursday, April 03, 2014 through Sunday, April 20, 2014

City: New York

Additional Notes:
"155 Thru the Roof," a fanciful comedy with music, will be presented by Theater for the New City, April 3 to 20. Written by award-winning playwright Toby Armour, directed by George Ferencz with music by Peter Dizozza, the play follows the epic adventures of Lily Field, director of Theater for the New Syzygy, as she moves through the Fourth Dimension beyond Earth and the Lower East Side. Audiences were first introduced to Lily and Theater for the New Syzygy in 2012, when “155 First Avenue” debuted at Theater for the New City. That play, by the same team, celebrated the heroic struggle for survival of an Off-Broadway theater in a past haunted by friendly ghosts such as Walt Whitman and Molly Picon. “155 Thru the Roof” continues the chronicle of the theater’s survival far into a perilous future. Amid torrential rains and floods, the very foundations of the theater's building are threatened. Only its eco-friendly green roof, long neglected and gone to seed, offers a refuge. But when Lily and her troupe of actors climb out onto the roof, they see a magical rain forest and a portal to the stars. Serene amidst this jungle, two Martians are broadcasting their morning talk-show. The big news, they tell their Martian theater audience, is that this year they will have an entry in the Interplanetary Musical Theater Competition! Do they have a script? A director? Lily is the answer! She is whisked away into space by her new companion, the Ancient Mariner, where she faces the biggest challenge of her career. With Apollo, the Sun God, a more than slightly interested observer, looking on, Lily must create a winning musical production or she will never see earth and her beloved Lower East Side again.

Additional Notes:
Born Yesterday may be best known for propelling Judy Holliday's career, through her portrayals of Billie on Broadway, and in an Oscar-winning film performance. The play's theme of unscrupulous Washington politics will ring true to theater-goers in 2014 as much as it did over 60 years ago. More compelling is the story of a woman slowly realizing her own worth. It's an affirmation to anyone who discovers she deserves better than the shabby treatment she has been receiving.
