155 Through The Roof
Thursday, April 03, 2014 through Sunday, April 20, 2014
 
An East Village theater is washed away by floods; its artistic director is abducted by stage-struck Martians.
 
Venue: ( Theater for the New City)

Producer: ( Theater for the New City)
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)

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.

Potion
A Play in Three Cocktails

Charley sells potions, handcrafted and custom made. From potions that can make the forgetful remember to potions that will stop a compulsive liar from fibbing, Charley’s concoctions satisfy a diverse clientele. But the one potion Charley hasn’t been able to master is that one she wants for herself: a love potion. Three-time Drama Desk Nominee Stolen Chair presents Potion, a “spoken word opera” that immerses its audience in the giddy world of Charley’s bar and her regular (and irregular) customers, with Gamora’s flight of 3 original “potions” served by the actors as the play unfolds. To create the uniquely rhythmic text for Potion, Stolen Chair's playwright Kiran Rikhye dug deeply into the Italian libretti of the operas by Mozart, Verdi, Donizetti, and more. For each scene of Potion, Rikhye mapped out the meter, rhymes, repetitions, and simultaneity of an aria, duet, trio, or quartet to create a templ

The Complete & Condensed Stage Directions Of Eugene O'Neill Volume 2
Thursday, April 17, 2014 through Sunday, May 11, 2014
 
The New York Neo-Futurists continue the adventure into the subconscious of a legendary American playwright by removing his dialogue and condensing the plays down to pure action.
 
Venue: ( Theater for the New City)

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.
