155 Through The Roof

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.

Born Yesterday
Friday, April 11, 2014 through Saturday, April 26, 2014
 
unscrupulous Washington politics rings true again
 
Venue: ( Nutley Little Theatre)
Nutley Little Theatre
Producer: ( Nutley Little Theatre)
Nutley Little Theatre
City: Nutley

Additional Notes:
Born Yesterday may be best known for propelling Judy Holliday's career, through her portrayals of Billie on Broadway, and in an Oscar-winning film performance. The play's theme of unscrupulous Washington politics will ring true to theater-goers in 2014 as much as it did over 60 years ago. More compelling is the story of a woman slowly realizing her own worth. It's an affirmation to anyone who discovers she deserves better than the shabby treatment she has been receiving.

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.
