City: Manalapan

Additional Notes:
Comedy Central and National Lampoon star Tommy Koenig brings us through the history of Rock and Roll in his one-man Musicomedy with songs and the music of The Beatles, James Brown, Santana, Tina Turner, Madonna, Lady Gaga, The Who, Neil young, Billy Joel, The Ramones, The Eagles and more!What makes ‘Baby Boom Baby unique as a one-man show is that it is not only pure entertainment and fun, but its also a love story, and the story of a generation told in this cleverly written, creatively staged and remarkably performed solo piece.What makes Tommy Koenig unique as an impressionist/parodist is his ability to not only embody the spirit of the character in body, face, voice and tone…but to use the artists own songs in self-mockery, lampooning with exacting aim, and in the case of ‘Baby Boom Baby, placed in their proper historical context. With original songs too.Tommy Koenig has always combined the worlds of stand-up comedy, theater and rock and roll music in his one-man shows over the years. And now he's done it again with BABY BOOM BABY. People have said: What an amazing talent. He's like a combination of Jerry Lewis and George Carlin. The New York Times called him A Master of Caricature, and The L.A. Weekly called him Hilarious.Humor, Music, Romance, History, Message – this show has it all! A perfect mix of Comedy, Music and Theater.

Exile is my Home
Thursday, April 28, 2016 through Sunday, May 22, 2016
 
Theater for the New City proudly presents the world premiere of Domnica Radulescu's EXILE IS MY HOME, A Sci-fi Immigrant Fairy tale. Exile is My Home is the haunting story of Mina and Lina, a refugee couple from the Balkans traveling through the galaxy in search of a planet to call home. Told as a sci-fi, post-apocalyptic fairy tale — and brilliantly combining absurdist comedy, irony, and suspense — the play touches on extremely relevant issues currently affecting our world.

Additional Notes:
As millions of people in our world today are being displaced from their homes and swept across tumultuous seas and often unwelcoming lands in their desperate need and desire for the safety and basic comforts of a home, immigrant theater has a crucial role in raising consciousness about these wrenching realities of our world. Domnica Radulescu’s play Exile Is My Home deals precisely with such realities from the perspective of female displaced travelers crossing a confusing and terrifying universe in a desperate search for safety, peace, a place they can call home. The play’s poetic and tragic comic actions and language, the courage, intelligence and sass of the two protagonists and the multicolored array of good and evil characters they encounter along the way create an artistic landscape that is as moving as it is entertaining, as politically engaged it is shocking, as troubling as it is comforting in its utopian ending. Directed by Andreas Robertz Assistant Director Karen Eilbacher Featuring: Mario Golden, Vivienne Jurado, Nikaury Rodriguez, Noemi de La Puente*, David van Leesten, AB Lugo, and Mirandy Rodriguez. *Courtesy of AEA Set Design by Jon Collins / Costume Design by Nicole Slaven Light Design by Joseph Thompson Music by Alexander Tanson, Art Work by Traci Mierzwa.

Shaqiri, Satomi Shikata, Amy Rebecca ShureArtistic Director Maia RamnathConstellation Moving Company was founded in 2009 as a project-based group specializing in multi-disciplinary performance work that combines elements of aerial acrobatics, dance, music, text, and/or video. We strive to expand the creative potential of aerial work by exploring complex themes; seeking to offer a mix of mental stimulation, emotional resonance, and physical dynamism; challenging one another both artistically and athletically; and above all, making stuff and sharing the stuff we make. We believe that sharing is what's crucial to the function of art in making sense of the world, exploring meaning, creating, and connecting. We believe the most interesting things—exchanges, transformations, inspirations—happen in the contact zones: between art forms, and between people.

THE EFFECT
 
“A KNOCKOUT! An ingenious ravishment of the senses.”
– Ben Brantley The New York Times

 
Venue: ( Barrow Street Theatre)

Producer: ( Barrow Street Theatre)
Barrow Street Theatre
City: New York

Additional Notes:
When it debuted, THE EFFECT took London by storm, winning BEST NEW PLAY from the UK Critics Circle. Now, award-winning director David Cromer (OUR TOWN, TRIBES) helms a new American production of this exhilarating play in the first collaboration between THE NATIONAL THEATRE, JEAN DOUMANIAN PRODUCTIONS and BARROW STREET THEATRE.

Hearts racing. Minds reeling. Knees buckling. Connie and Tristan have palpable chemistry—or is it a side effect of a new super-antidepressant? They are volunteers in a clinical trial, but their sudden and illicit romance forces the supervising doctors to face off over the ethical consequences of their work.

From Lucy Prebble, “one of the UKs hottest new playwrights” (The Telegraph), THE EFFECT takes on our pill-popping culture with humor and scintillating drama.

Additional Notes:
Its the Fourth of July, 1912 & theres trouble in River City! When smooth-talking con man Harold Hill arrives in a small, tight-knit town in Iowa, he expects to dupe its residents with his elaborate moneymaking scheme: Despite his complete lack of musical literacy, he will convince everyone that he is a brilliant bandleader and recruit all the boys in town to form a band, pocketing the cash for instruments and uniforms. The problem? Some of the town members, especially the stern librarian, Marian Paroo, dont quite buy Harolds story. As Harold struggles to keep his scheme afloat, he also finds himself increasingly attached to the townspeople, who have all experienced a positive change since Harold came to town. Complicating matters even more, Harold is also falling head-over-heels for the beautiful Marian. As All-American as apple pie and as charming as can be, The Music Man is a crowd-pleasing show.
