City: NYC

Additional Notes:
Ventura's Friday night sunset sail is an upscale yet casual experience. For many New Yorkers, this mini-cruise -- under sail power! -- is a beloved and refreshing way to close out the work week.
Click here for a short clip of sailing on the Ventura!

Every Friday evening in summer, this beautiful, private sailing yacht welcomes individuals, couples, and networking groups aboard for a unique cruise in New York Harbor. Friday sunset guests are permitted to byo wines, picnic snacks, etc -- no hard liquor allowed -- or self serve from the ship's honor bar. Background music compliments the engine-free sounds of wind and waves aboard this classic, true wooden ship.

It is a romantic, mellow, and upbeat experience. The gold standard of New York harbor sailing cruises.
RAIN POLICY: If the sail is cancelled due to weather, ticket holders will be refunded for the price of their ticket. Smarttix retains their ticket service fee. If the sail is cancelled, Smarttix will email ticket holders no later than 4:30 PM on the day of the sail (if not earlier.) In case it starts to rain during the sail, all Ventura guests are welcome to enjoy the boat's beautiful mahogany cabins below. They are also issued emergency rain gear. (And you can take the rain gear home.) Happily,on those very few occasions when all are below decks during rain, a bottle of fine Caribbean rum just happens to appear, and offered on the house! Yo ho ho to the very best rain policy on the water!

WHO'S ABOARD? Friday nights are mostly native New Yorkers looking to relax after work, enjoy a beer or glass of wine. Not a booze cruise. Guests are individuals, some on dates, sometimes even a mini b-day party with a group of friends. Somehow, the occasional Norwegians, Brits, Japanese and Australians (no surprise there, big sailors, those Aussies) find their way aboard on a Friday.

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.”
– Ben Brantley The New York Times

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.

Hilarious! Will keep you laughing from start to finish.
 
Venue: ( Nutley Little Theatre)

Producer: ( Nutley Little Theatre)
Nutley Little Theatre
City: Nutley

Additional Notes:
“The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!)” is a witty parody about...musicals! A satirical treat with one story transformed into a quintet of lyrical vignettes, each variation cast in the distinctive style of five Broadway masters: Rodgers & Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Jerry Herman, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Kander & Ebb. Listen and laugh as each of the composers gems gets skewered to hilarious effect. This is a cant-miss experience for lovers of the musical genre.

Venue: ( Shetler Studios)

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.
