Prague, 1912 (the Savoy Café Yiddish Theatre)
 
Prague, 1912 is a comedy based on historic personalities of the Yiddish Theater. 
 
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 t

Scraps from a Crazy Quilt
Thursday, November 09, 2017 through Sunday, November 26, 2017
 

 
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:
The Theater for the New City is pleased to present Walter Corwin’s SCRAPS FOR A CRAZY QUILT a kaleidoscope of New York characters and scenarios from the not-too-distant dystopian future of America, a dystopia that is already upon us. Referencing Brecht’s groundbreaking work The Private Life of the Master Race, which was produced in 1938 in Paris, Corwin’s SCRAPS FOR A CRAZY QUILT is a cautionary series of playlets, most of which sardonically illustrate a particular ill facing our nation, from healthcare, to freedom of expression, to the deterioration of education and the rise of social media. Sarah Germain Lilly, T. Scott Lilly, Juan Villegas, and Dan Kelley personify these crises, performing in the roles of proletarians, presidents and college professors as they cycle through the chain of events spawned by the increasingly dark cloud spreading over American democracy. As more and more Trump Towers spring up and throw Corwin’s city into perpetual shade, and the Statue of Liberty is literally dismembered by grumpy workmen, there is a bit of room for redemption through individual acts of kindness. Still, the accuracy of Brecht’s foreboding instinct inevitably plays on the viewer’s minds, as is Corwin’s intention, and his warning. Walter Corwin has been presenting his surreal comedies at the Theater for the New City for many years. He was a protegé of the playwright Ed Bullins and a veteran of the Actors Studio and Herbert Bergof Studio. Corwin’s plays have been produced at LaMama and The Public Theater. Director Dan Kelley is a member of the Theater for the New City based comedy troupe Wise Guise and directed Corwin’s last presentation Laughter After Midnight a dark comedy about the first woman president performed during the election of 2016.

The Life and Sounds of Simon & Garfunkel
 

 
Venue: ( Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center)
Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center
Producer: ( DBA Mizner Theater)
DBA Mizner Theater
City: Boca Raton

Additional Notes:
Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel rose to prominence in 1966 with voices that blended like siblings, applying Everly Brothers-inspired harmonies to Simons songs. They quickly became the most popular folk-rock duo of the sixties. This program traces the arc of Simon and Garfunkels success from their childhood beginnings in Queens, N.Y., when they began singing together at age 12.

By 1963, the duo had already built a reputation around Greenwich Village, after singing together throughout high school and cutting a record as 16-year-olds. But, their debut album for Columbia languished until their producer secretly went back into the studio and added electric guitar, bass and drums to “The Sound of Silence,” and Simon and Garfunkel had a #1 hit. They released six albums, winning 10 Grammy Awards, and youll hear many of those beloved songs performed amid stimulating commentary on their career as a duo and on their personal lives. This unique and memorable program blends dramatic slides with a live performance of their intricate close-harmony songs by Joan Friedenberg and Bill Bowen, who sing professionally as the PinkSlip Duo. And, lyrics to the songs will be projected for audience sing-along.
