“Hip Hip Hooray, the Hilarious BUYER & CELLAR moves to a larger theater!” -Peter Marks, The Washington Post
TOP CRITICS PICK: New York Times, Time Out NY, New York Magazine, Entertainment Weekly
"IRRESISTIBLE, DELICIOUS and WICKEDLY FUNNY!" -The New York Times
"Hilarious! Michael Urie is MASTERFUL!" -New York Magazine
"Fantastically funny!" - New York Post
"A fantasy so delightful you wish it were true." -The New Yorker
"An irresistible play from the most peculiar of fictitious premises — an underemployed Los Angeles actor goes to work in Barbra Streisand’s Malibu basement — allowing the playwright to ruminate with delicious wit and perspicacity on the solitude of celebrity, and the melancholy that lurks beneath narcissism. In the capable hands of the director Stephen Brackett and the wickedly charming actor Michael Urie, this seriously funny slice of absurdist whimsy creates the illusion of a stage filled with multiple people, all of them with their own droll point of view." -The New York Times
"Spectacular. Beyond Brilliant. This show will go down like butta'!" -Entertainment Weekly
"Fantastically Funny. Its a Funny-Girl Babs inspired Comedy." -NY Post
World premiere produced by Rattlestick Playwrights Theater.

Wednesday, June 05, 2013 through Sunday, June 30, 2013
Gary L. Anderson, the lauded national portrayer of Clarence Darrow, offers a fresh, raw portrait of the "Lion of the Courtroom," who defended John Scopes (Scopes Monkey Trial) and the teenage child-killers, Leopold and Loeb.
Passionate against the death penalty, Darrow saved 102 men, women and children from execution. Forever loyal to his motto "Lost causes are the only ones worth fighting for." Now, he stubbornly faces his two greatest opponents: disease and death.
Based on new and intimate details of his private life, Naked Darrow is an inspiring portrayal of the man, not the legand, in his final days. At 79, ill and struggling, with his mind slipping away, Darrow confronts his life - past and present, personal demons, famous and infamous cases, and the influential women he loved. For Darrow...the truth is no longer clear.
"Gary Anderson's Clarence Darrow is in the same league as Holbrook's Twain." ... Eureka Times, CA
"Gary Anderson's one-man portrayal of Clarence Darrow reminds us why spectators lined up at dawn, why judges wept, why reporters howled, and why the name of Clarence Darrow still evokes in us the challenge that we can, that we must continue to fight oppression. I strongly recommend you give yourself this gift and see Gary Anderson." ... Phyllis Vine, author of "One Man's Castle: Clarence Darrow in Defense of the American Dream"
"Holds the audience spellbound. Don't miss this engaging and thought provoking performance!" ... San Leandro Times, CA

Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead

The Seeing Place Theater, known for intensely intimate ensemble work,
brings you a repertory event like no other- Tom Stoppard's absurdist "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead" paired with its source material, Shakespeare's classic, "Hamlet."
Stoppard's classic & hilarious treatise on existentialism, "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead" is a worm's-eye view of the tale of Hamlet from Shakespeare's own Laurel and Hardy. Hailed as The Best Play in the English Language, "Hamlet" is the quintessential Revenger's Tragedy of an unlikely hero, unearthing the story behind his father's sudden death. With 1 united cast of 12 actors taking the same roles in both plays, come experience both sides of this classic story in the daring ensemble-driven manner that's made The Seeing Place a fixture in the NY indie theater scene.
Critics and audiences are raving about these two shows, calling them "compelling and gutsy" (Upstage Downstage), "engrossing...can't miss" (Daily Actor) and "beautiful...well worth it!" (Patron review, Time Out NY.) Further, Time Out NY has named us a "Good Odd" for Off-Off Broadway, and a Top Choice for "Cheap Theater in NYC."

Stop The Tempo
Sunday, May 26, 2013 through Tuesday, June 18, 2013
Origin Theatre Company, Artistic Director George C. Heslin presents the US premiere of “Stop the Tempo” by Romanian playwright Gianina Carbinariu, in a theatrically explosive site-specific staging at Arlene’s Grocery,
Directed by Matt Torney, whose New York credits include
shows at HERE and 59E59, “Stop the Tempo” plays a
limited 4-week engagement.
In “Stop the Tempo” three alienated scenesters in their
20’s express their disillusion with fitting in to the new
Bucharest, which has changed utterly since the fall of
Communism. Now, neon signs pulse on every building,
shopping malls fill every suburb, dance music pumps from
every stereo, the TVs are turned up loud, and everyone is
pushed to spend spend spend. Subsequent to its
Romanian premiere, other memorable productions across Europe
have tapped a growing malaise for global consumerism.
In New York, the Belfast-born Torney adapts the play’s
central currency to explore our own oscillating urges to
disconnect in an utterly connected world.
