Additional Notes:
An Evening With Noel Fielding is a surreal mix of stand-up, live animation, music and some of Fieldings best known TV characters including The Moon and Fantasy Man. Fielding has toured the show to critical acclaim throughout the U.K., and is currently touring theaters in Australia and New Zealand.

“Building to a wonderful atom-bomb of psychedelia that you will just have to discover for yourself, this is two-hours-plus of phantasmagorical, utterly original comedy.” – (Four Stars) The Telegraph

“Pleasingly nutty, utterly childish and executed with vaudevillian glee” – (Four Stars) The Evening Standard

“Freewheeling, contagious and delightful” – The Guardian

A comedian, actor, artist and musician, Fieldings surrealist comedy and Rock & Roll style is utterly unique: Monty Python meets David Bowie. His shows are complete art pieces blending all of his influences - stand-up, characters, art and music - in fully-realized productions of his imagination.

Fielding rose to worldwide stardom as one half of The Mighty Boosh, a multi-award winning comedy duo whose three season run on BBC TV was revered by critics and fans alike, leading to worldwide tours and arena tours in the U.K. NME called the Boosh, “the funniest comedy double act in Britain.”

Last year Fielding was a surprise guest performing on stage with Monty Python at one of their O2 Arena shows. For the past four years, Fielding has been a team captain on the legendary BBC TV show, Nevermind The Buzzcocks, and he starred in his own TV series, Luxury Comedy, which ran for two seasons in 2012 and 2014. Half live action, half animated, the series was described by The Independent as “inescapably whimsical,” and by The Guardian as “a neo-psychadelic riot of mirth.”

Additional Notes:
When Mokhtar, an architecture student, disappears without a trace, his family and friends discover that he is suspected of belonging to a terrorist organization…Winner of 2003 SACD Award. This extremely relevant story has been dealt with masterfully by Jalila Baccar. Araberlin shows just how far the current issue of terrorism is pushing apart the two worlds, which are finding it increasingly difficult to understand one another.”

Additional Notes:
In this all-female production, seven actresses play multiple roles. As You Like It is about what happens when everything you know changes, and you find yourself in the middle of the woods. It's part fairy tale, part romantic comedy, part philosophical discourse, and part farce. Folding Chair present a stripped-down version of the play, focusing on Shakespeare's words, evoking an entire world with just seven actresses in an empty space.

Behind the Mask is the US Premiere of an original play written by Fang BaiMing and Huang WeiRuo (China). Directed by Chongren Fan. Produced by the Yangtze Repertory Theatre of America.The play is a metatheater drama, set in a theater space somewhere in China, where a troupe is rehearsing for a story about a Chinese mythical hero, Mei Jian Chi. As the myth is popularly known within Chinese culture, it depicts a tyrant, the King of Chu, who orders the death of his two master swordsmiths as part of a ritualized process to forge the world's sharpest blades, using human blood. Their son, Mei, seeking revenge, devises a death ploy with an errant by offering his own living but decapitated head to the King. Fragments of the mythical story switch in and out from snippets of mundane and personal follies of the struggling troupe during rehearsal.The play is a dark comedy. Involving a total of 9 leading and supporting actors. This production will be a new adaptation of the original script. The contemporary part of the play(the troupes story) is devised and created by Chongren Fan and ensemble. The characters are aware of their own theatricality. The play examines the current theatre world through a comic lens. The music in the play is new and modern with a strong innovative approach to ancient Chinese music characteristics composed by Xiren Wang.

 Casterbridge
 
Based on the famous Victorian novel by Thomas Hardy, The Mayor of Casterbridge
 
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:
Based on The Mayor of Casterbridge, 19th Century English classic novel by Thomas Hardy. Set in Wessex – the West Country - with the town of Casterbridge representing the actual Dorset. It is a parable of spiritual ups and downs, mirrored by material success and failure. While essentially a towering romantic tragedy, it has both comic highlights and melodramatic moods to enliven it and an extraordinary score replete with lush melodies. Its main characters are riveting figures, full of depth and pathos, while the secondary characters are fun in their sharply defined peculiarities. Michael Henchard, a pretentious and tempestuous impoverished young wanderer, comes to a fairground with his wife, Susan and their baby. He gets outrageously drunk and auctions his wife off to the highest bidder – a sea captain. As she takes off for Canada with the captain, Henchard passes out. When he comes to and realizes what hes done, he swears an oath not to drink liquor for 21 years. Much time has elapsed, and Henchard is now a successful grain merchant and mayor of Casterbridge. Susan, whose husband the sea captain has died, returns to Casterbridge with Elizabeth-Jane, their daughter, now grown up, to find Henchard. He welcomes them, “marries” Susan as though theyd never been acquainted before, and “adopts” Elizabeth-Jane. In the meanwhile, he has welcomed a traveling Scotsman, Donald Farfrae into his business, with whom he is smitten. But affection turns to simmering jealousy as the popular and competent Farfrae achieves success, and Henchard turns him out of the business. At this point, Susan dies, revealing to Henchard that Elizabeth-Jane isnt his daughter, their baby having perished in infancy, but rather the child of her relationship with the sea captain. His incipient love for Elizabeth-Jane, now curdles. Farfrae, who was starting to fall in love with Elizabeth-Jane (but with whom Henchard now forbids any further contact), sets up his own business in competition with Henchard. Through a confluence of bad weather and bad decisions, Henchard loses his grain business, the which Farfrae then snaps up, the coup making him more successful yet. Also, a mysterious, charismatic woman with whom Henchard had had a fleeting romance in the past, Lucetta, comes to Casterbridge to reestablish their liaison. When Henchard spurns her, she turns to Farfrae, who falls in love with her and marries her. At this point, Farfrae is mayor, has Henchards old business and his old flame. Henchard - no longer mayor, impoverished, isolated - goes to work for his rival Farfrae, in a menial position. They fight out their festering differences in a wrestling match in a hayloft, after which Henchard takes to the high road, abandoning Casterbridge. Shortly after, Lucetta dies. Elizabeth-Jane and Farfrae once again notice each other and fall in love. As they embrace, they entertain wistful thoughts for Henchard.

 De Roaring 70s
