Additional Notes:
Lets get up close and personal with New Yorks most festive fireworks display!

And while were about it, bring your favorite picnic snacks, a bottle of wine, and enjoy a wonderful sunset sail to the Statue of Liberty on a 100 year old sailing yacht.

So here's all the sweet & neet deets.....

Timing: 7:45 to 8:00 pm boarding. Departing 8:00 pm sharp! Returning 11:00 pm (ish) after the fireworks are over.

Location: Hudson River, North Cove Marina @ Brookfield Place. Easy and best access via the walkway at the corner of South End Avenue and Liberty Street. (Puts you 100 yards from Ventura.)

And now for the fun story, morning glory...

Were sailing from our glam home base at North Cove/Brookfield Place, from the south side of the marina. Well worth showing up early and catching the scene at Le District. Very cool, although pricey.

Our mission is to get as close as possible to the fireworks launching site – close enough to feel the concussion blasts, smell the expended powder, and see the ghostly smoke clouds etched by the explosions overhead.

And this year were making the event even more special. Weve added an extra hour into the cruise! Let those other boats do their two hour, in and out and back sails. Not us. The extra time allows those aboard to enjoy a twilight and sunset sail before the fireworks, so you may leisurely enjoy your bring-your-own picnic dinner while under sail.

Sail plan, Stan:

Navigators and sightseers take note… Immediately after departing North Cove, we head south. Cruising past the past the Battery, we keep on going, destination the newly constructed hills off southern Governors Island. This extraordinary urban engineering feat, featuring three climbing hills up to 70 high is scheduled to open this year!

A sharp turn to 270 degrees, brings us west bound for a close, closer, oh so close pass by the Statue of Liberty. Well get so close to the Statue that youll be a

Additional Notes:
Karen Malpede, playwright, will direct the cast of five, featuring her long-time collaborator, 4 time Obie winner, George Bartenieff, as the poet, Robert Blaze, Evangeline Johns, as his beekeeping sister, Sybil; Jenny Leona, as Admira Ismic; Najla Said, as the human rights worker daughter and Jacob C. Ware, as the poets young lover, in the Theater Three Collaborative production at Theater for the New City, June 2-26. Theater Three Collaborative, co-founded by Malpede, Bartenieff and the late Lee Nagrin, first produced this play to acclaim in Italy, where it was “best play” at the Dionysia World Festival of Contemporary Drama and in a sold-out showcase production New York in 1995. An off-Broadway production in 1997, not directed by Malpede, did not fare as well, but the play was called “witty, passionate, a deep, subtle, rich journey confronting the audience with horrors while celebrating unforeseen possibilities for human goodness,” when staged in Brisbane Australia, that same year. Writing about “The Beekeepers Daughter” today in his foreword to a forthcoming collection of Malpedes plays, critic and theater historian, Marvin Carlson, praising the playwright as “prominent among only a handful of dramatists seriously concerned with global and national political issues,” says: “all the characters confront their largely repressed and often conflicted feelings about their sexuality, their present and past relationships, and their convictions and assumptions about male and female roles, violence and passion,” In the midst of todays refugee crisis “the play strikes a disturbingly contemporary note.” “We wanted to revive a play weve always loved at this time in American history, when we are facing a rise of cruelty and xenophobia against refugees, immigrants and Muslims,” Malpede says. “We want to use our art to provide a magical haven for audiences who are eager to feel their own empathic reactions.” The Cino Theater at Theater

THE EFFECT
 
“A KNOCKOUT! An ingenious ravishment of the senses.”

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.

Producer: ( Tongue in Cheek Theater Productions)
Tongue in Cheek Theater Productions
City: New York

Additional Notes:
When former soap opera actress Jessica Bisset is cast as Hamlet, she is both thrilled and overwhelmed by the prospect of playing the dark prince.

But as she begins rehearsals, Jessica's insecurities grow. It doesn't help that she is surrounded by doubters, from her mother, new acting coach, to... seemingly everyone else she encounters.

To add insult to injury, Jessica has managed to piss off Sir Patrick Stewart, who won't stop texting her. Jessica must ask herself, To play, or not to play...Hamlet?

A comedy about performing a tragedy
Written by William Missouri Downs
Directed by Molly Ballerstein
Stage managed by Taylor Wilkerson

Tongue in Cheek Theater presents this New York City premiere, featuring an all-female cast performing all the roles.

This wickedly clever new play uses an all-woman cast to explore questions of courage and conscience in a modern setting, managing to both spoof Shakespeare and pay homage to him in a show that moves like lightning.
