155 Through The Roof
Thursday, April 03, 2014 through Sunday, April 20, 2014

Theater for the New City
City: New York

Additional Notes:
"155 Thru the Roof," a fanciful comedy with music, will be presented by Theater for the New City, April 3 to 20. Written by award-winning playwright Toby Armour, directed by George Ferencz with music by Peter Dizozza, the play follows the epic adventures of Lily Field, director of Theater for the New Syzygy, as she moves through the Fourth Dimension beyond Earth and the Lower East Side. Audiences were first introduced to Lily and Theater for the New Syzygy in 2012, when “155 First Avenue” debuted at Theater for the New City. That play, by the same team, celebrated the heroic struggle for survival of an Off-Broadway theater in a past haunted by friendly ghosts such as Walt Whitman and Molly Picon. “155 Thru the Roof” continues the chronicle of the theater’s survival far into a perilous future. Amid torrential rains and floods, the very foundations of the theater's building are threatened. Only its eco-friendly green roof, long neglected and gone to seed, offers a refuge. But when Lily and her troupe of actors climb out onto the roof, they see a magical rain forest and a portal to the stars. Serene amidst this jungle, two Martians are broadcasting their morning talk-show. The big news, they tell their Martian theater audience, is that this year they will have an entry in the Interplanetary Musical Theater Competition! Do they have a script? A director? Lily is the answer! She is whisked away into space by her new companion, the Ancient Mariner, where she faces the biggest challenge of her career. With Apollo, the Sun God, a more than slightly interested observer, looking on, Lily must create a winning musical production or she will never see earth and her beloved Lower East Side again.

Confessions Of A Cuban Sex Addict
Friday, February 08, 2013 through Thursday, May 15, 2014

Venue: ( Duo Theatre)

Producer: ( DMAC)
DMAC
City: New York

Additional Notes:
"From the age of three until the age of six I enjoyed a rather delightful sexual relationship with my father...." so begins Confessions of a Cuban Sex Addict, written and designed by Michelangelo Alasa', a walk through, theatrical installation filled with video, found objects and words. Now, Alasa' shares his personal journey through Confessions, a snapshot of his queer coming-of-age experience during the 1960s. Cathartic in nature, this performative exhibition reminds us of our deepest secrets, darkest longings, and biggest triumphs. "The true stories of writer/director/producer Michelangelo Alasa', the experience is voyeuristic and thrilling in a way that illusory theater often cannot emulate. Confessions is a treat for an adult audience who appreciate truth-seeking, an emotionally naked look at a skilled artist willing to expose both his greatest assets and most raw relationships." Shane Reader "Michelangelo Alasa's projections are mesmerizing....His memorabilia from Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe and others who suffered while inspiring the world is fascinating to see on the way in and out of the performance space. This review does not come close to how it feels to see the show, which is a challenging but constructive experience." Ed Malin NYTheatre.com PLEASE NOTE: As tickets are free, we ask you not to order more tickets than 2 tickets. We will only honor 2 tickets per order by the same person.

Lady From Limerick
Thursday, April 10, 2014 through Sunday, April 20, 2014
 
LADY FROM LIMERICK TELLS TALE OF IRISH WOMAN’S DREAMS DENIED. Based on a true story, show looks at perils of plastic surgery
 
Venue: ( Theater for the New City)

Producer: ( Theater for the New City)
Theater for the New City
City: New York

Additional Notes:
A woman who lives in an Irish town tells her husband she’s going to a conference in Dublin. Instead, she flies to New York City for plastic surgery. The trip turns into a tragedy. After things go wrong at a Park Ave. plastic surgeon’s office, we see how the desire to be better can lead us to doctors we know little about and situations where we lose everything. “Lady from Limerick” by Claude Solnik is loosely based on the story of Kathleen Kelly Cregan, a woman from Limerick who died after plastic surgery in 2005.

Little Mac, Little Mac, You're The Very Man!
Wednesday, April 02, 2014 through Sunday, April 27, 2014
 

 
Venue: ( The Kraine Theater)
The Kraine Theater
Producer: ( Horse Trade and Less Than Rent Theatre)
Horse Trade and Less Than Rent Theatre
City: New York

Additional Notes:
LITTLE MAC, LITTLE MAC, YOU’RE THE VERY MAN! is based on John Gay's The Beggar's Opera, resetting its antihero, the renowned outlaw Macheath, in the Wild West on the run from the local oil tycoon, Mr. Peachum, and his henchman, Sheriff Lockit. The long arm of the law pursues Little Mac across the country, and through a hodgepodge of American history and culture. Along the way, he encounters familiar faces including Al Gore and Al Capone, Ronald Reagan and Ronald McDonald, and Lucille Ball and her buddy Ethel (Rosenberg). Rounding out the story of the outlaw- and the eighty-five memorable characters he meets- is a musical score that pays homage to the classic American songbook. Part spaghetti Western, part political satire, and part film-noir, Little Mac is a heart-warming tale about money, capitalism, and money.

The Complete & Condensed Stage Directions Of Eugene O'Neill Volume 2

City: New York

Additional Notes:
A follow up to the Drama Desk nominated THE COMPLETE AND CONDENSED STAGE DIRECTIONS OF EUGENE O'NEILL, VOLUME 1, which was called "an impish illustration of how lively entertainment can be created from theatrical spare parts" by the New York Times, the New York Neo-Futurists continue the adventure into the subconscious of American theater legend Eugene O'Neill. Removing the dialogue and stripping the plays down to pure action, O'Neill's eloquent yet obsessive and often controlling stage directions become a rip-roaring physical comedy. Now a Broadway mainstay, Eugene O'Neill was once considered an experimental, downtown playwright. His plays defied the melodramatic conventions of the day and much of his work premiered with the Provincetown Players on MacDougall Street. The New York Neo-Futurists return O'Neill to his experimental roots. "A stoner convention for scholars" (Time Out NY on O'Neill V. 1), THE COMPLETE & CONDENSED STAGE DIRECTIONS OF EUGENE O’NEILL, VOLUME 2 spans the years 1913 - 1915, and includes his plays Recklessness, Warnings, Fog, Abortion, and The Sniper.
