Making a staggering 1000 career arrests, she became the 4th woman in history to make detective 1st grade, and then nearly lost it all.

The HRT will open its 2016-17 season with Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical theatre masterwork, IN THE HEIGHTS. The talented cast 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.

The Last Night of Ballyhoo
Winner of 1997 Tony Award for Best Play
Venue: ( Nutley Little Theatre)
Nutley Little Theatre
Producer: ( Nutley Little Theatre)
Nutley Little Theatre
City: Nutley

Additional Notes:
THE LAST NIGHT OF BALLYHOO takes place in Atlanta, Georgia, in December of 1939. Gone with the Wind is having its world premiere, and Hitler is invading Poland, but Atlanta's elitist German Jews are much more concerned with who is going to Ballyhoo, the social event of the season. Especially concerned is the Freitag family: bachelor Adolph, his widowed sister, Beulah (Boo) Levy, and their also widowed sister-in-law, Reba. Boo is determined to have her dreamy, unpopular daughter, Lala, attend Ballyhoo, believing it will be Lala's last chance to find a socially acceptable husband. Adolph brings his new assistant, Joe Farkas, home for dinner. Joe is Brooklyn born and bred, and furthermore is of Eastern European heritage—several social rungs below the Freitags, in Beulah's opinion. Lala, however, is charmed by Joe and she hints broadly about being taken to Ballyhoo, but he turns her down. This enrages Boo, and matters get worse when Joe falls for Lala's cousin, Reba's daughter, Sunny, home from Wellesley for Christmas vacation. Will Boo succeed in snaring Peachy Weil, a member of one of the finest Jewish families in the South? Will Sunny and Joe avoid the land mines of prejudice that stand in their way? Will Lala ever get to Ballyhoo? The family gets pulled apart and then mended together with plenty of comedy, romance and revelations along the way. Events take several unexpected turns as the characters face where they come from and are forced to deal with who they really are.

Ubu Rex
In the future of New York City, that is to say nowhere, one building stands taller than all the rest. Over a landscape of skyscrapers, The Fecal Tower looms - the tallest building on the planet. At the very top is the penthouse where the CEO lives with his family; far down below, in the First Basement, is the home of Papa and Mama Ubu.

Additional Notes:
Papa Ubu is the slovenly Superintendent of the Fecal Tower, content to glut himself on porn and PBR. But his wife, Mama Ubu, is a true Lady (Macbeth) who is always scheming for more. Mama is hungry for riches and power; Papa is just hungry. Together they plot to overthrow the CEO and put Papas fat ass on the throne. With Mamas wiles and Papas propaganda they rally a band of thugs and thieves to help them ascend The Fecal Tower to power! Papa proves himself as a ruthless ruler and Mama as a cunning…well shes not very nice, as all embark on an odyssey to become: the ruling class.The Public will watch, helpless as the travesty of Ubu Rex unfolds across your screens, mirroring the absurdity of our present-day techno-oligarchy. Mama and Papa Ubu are just the latest upstarts in the race for survival of the richest. A scathing satire presented in the spirit of absurdity and irreverence that made the original a classic, Ubu Rex takes you on a wild journey to a garish and violent future, without ever leaving the Five Boroughs.“This elevator goes up, just as fast as it goes down.”-Ubu

When Yellow Were The Stars On Earth
Amidst the atrocities of World War II, two women cross enemy lines to make the ultimate heroic sacrifice.
Venue: ( Hudson Guild Theatre)
Hudson Guild Theatre
Producer: ( Robert Williams)
Robert Williams
City: New York

Additional Notes:
One night in Berlin, 1943, during an SS raid, a German Cabaret singer opens her door to save a Jewish Resistance fighter. As the hours unfold, destiny winds their lives more tightly together until there is no turning back. When Yellow Were the Stars on Earth tells a story of two rarely written about realities: Jewish female fighters and Germans who died refusing to be part of Nazi machinery.The tragedy of the Holocaust is written in indelible ink on our past. It has left a deep scar on our history and is profoundly connected to another subject that has little been dealt with; the considerable number of people who died opposing the horrors of the Nazism. Most of them are not remembered as heroes and their stories have been swallowed by time. When Yellow Were the Stars on Earth was written out of a personal wish to create an imaginary place in time and space where, for once, a German Jewish woman (Miriam) and an Aryan German woman (Klara) could meet, look at each other beyond the tragedies that linked them during World War II, and express the primal love that is common to all souls.
