Danny and the Deep Blue Sea
Will it be fusion or fission? Will the night end in love or death?
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:
In this early John Patrick Shanley work, the playwright bravely strips bare the soul of a man and woman. Through raw, un-prettified emotion, he reveals the core of what makes us all human. Two damaged people so beaten up by life they are unable to express their own desperation, meet in a desolate bar. He, so filled with anger that his only respite from a rage he cannot understand is to lash out wildly with his fists. She, so eaten up inside by a secret shame she fears to share with anyone that she can find no rest and no escape from herself. The simple beauty of Danny and the Deep Blue Sea is that we get to watch rapt at the mad sexual apache rhythms of these two incendiary, self-destructive natures, banging up against one another. Will it be fusion or fission? Will the night end in love or death?

For many years, Charlotte Von Mahlsdorf gave tours of her unusual Gründerzeit Museum, with its countless treasures from the German 1890s. Sitting at RePOP among vintage artifacts from intervening times and places, audiences will engage as never before with Charlottes tale of survival in Nazi Germany and under the East German communist regime that followed. Directed by Amy Corcoran and starring Drama Desk nominee Vince Gatton, the play will remind us of the powerful histories that infuse even the most ordinary objects around us.

Additional Notes:
The HRT will open its 2015-16 season with Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical theatre masterwork, IN THE HEIGHTS. The cast of 20 will bring this eclectic score to life in a bold new expressionistic interpretation. The environmental seating arrangement will transfix the audience as the young and energetic cast sings and dances throughout four separate performance areas in the newly renovated Tato Laviera Theatre – often a few feet away from the audience. IN THE HEIGHTS won the 2008 Tony awards for BEST MUSICAL and BEST ORIGINAL SCORE. Charles Isherwood wrote in his New York Times review:When this musical erupts in one of its expressions of collective joy, the energy it gives off could light up the George Washington Bridge for a year or two.

City: New York

Additional Notes:
LETTERS TO SALA is the true story of Sala Garncarz, a young girl who was unwittingly caught up in the atrocity of war. She lived to share her story.As much as LETTERS TO SALA reflects the past and the atrocities of World War II, it is anchored in the present. We live through Salas story, simultaneously experiencing those memories and how they affect the lives of her family members today, even though they are two generations apart. The humanity and unique perspective of this play draw the audience in. It resonates with all ages.Based on the book SALAS GIFT which was written by Salas daughter, Ann Kirschner, LETTERS TO SALA (the play) is about the passing of a legacy, the unique dilemma of a woman who kept many dark secrets buried to protect her children and who, ultimately, realized that sharing them would constitute the deepest form of maternal kindness.Playwright Arlene Hutton and director Eric Nightingale have been working on the play, LETTERS TO SALA, for several years. With the blessing and help of Sala, Ann and the Kirschner family, the play will receive its much anticipated professional world premiere this fall in New York City.
