Additional Notes:
***** - Time Out **** "warm and hilarious" - The List **** - The Guardian **** “compelling”– The Scotsman In 2013, American-born, Irish-bred Des Bishop moved to China, became fluent in Mandarin, and followed through on his dream of performing stand-up to a Chinese audience. This adventure also led him on a search to find a girlfriend at a Beijing marriage market, to a job in a very busy restaurant, and eventually to an entertaining appearance on a TV dating show with 40 million viewers! Made in China is a funny fantastic journey through a country (and people) we all feel we need to know better. The openness and honesty of his presenting style combined with his restless imagination and insightful comic observations make Des Bishop a “must-see” for fans of unique, enquiring and entertaining comedy.

City: New York

Additional Notes:
Great Kills, written in a style reminiscent of such plays as David Mamet's American Buffalo, and Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey Into Night, is a darkly comic, emotionally gripping tale of a get-rich-quick scheme that goes awry. With the changing landscape of mental health, Meadowbrook, the institution where Mr. G has worked in maintenance for over thirty years, is shutting down. When Mr. G mentions to his son, Tim, who's living home after having lost his position as an adjunct professor of literature, how the institution's furniture -- the kind of stuff you find in a doctor's office -- is lying abandoned in a field, he dreams of making a fortune from selling the salvage. To finance the plan, he involves his estranged childhood friend, restaurateur, Robert. Over the course of a drunken evening of scheming, the plan becomes less real, as the men's desperate realities become more apparent, and a devastating family secret is revealed.

Hunter Gatherers
 
Pam and Richard are hosting their best friends, Wendy and Tom, for an annual dinner get-together. An animal sacrifice kicks off the evening, followed by a little more sex, violence, deception, wrestling, and dancing than at previous parties. A darkly comic evening where the line between civilized and primal man is blurred, and where not everyone will survive long enough to enjoy the brownies for dessert.

Venue: ( Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church)

Producer: ( Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church)

City: New York

Additional Notes:
Brahms choral masterpiece is a moving tribute to the strength of the human spirit when in relationship with God. Originally composed for full orchestra, chorus and soloists, Brahms later arranged the accompaniment for piano duet: four hands on one piano. This rarely-heard chamber version will be performed on this occasion, offering an exciting opportunity to experience the piece more intimately, especially its dramatic, imaginative setting of selected verses from the Bible.

Kristina
Friday, March 13, 2015 through Sunday, March 29, 2015
 
Before Hollywood's "Queen Christina" there was August Strindberg's "Kristina." See the role that made Garbo notorious!
 
Venue: ( The Gene Frankel Theater)
The Gene Frankel Theater
Producer: ( August Strindberg Repertory Theatre, Inc)
August Strindberg Repertory Theatre, Inc
City: New York

Additional Notes:
KRISTINA is the true story of the scandals leading up to the abdication of Sweden's only queen. Her naturalistic portrayal in this play made Strindberg's name as a revisionist historian and led to vicious attacks on him for the unforgivable sin of telling the truth. We see Kristina struggling against old lovers and former mentors, hiding her impending conversion to Roman Catholicism, putting on ballets to distract from her financial and sexual misconduct, fighting her feminine nature and finally succumbing to it. Kristina wore pants, which were first adopted by women 300 years later; she struggled with a world not ready to accept a strong-willed woman in a position of authority...supreme authority in her case. Design evokes Garbo and the Roaring Twenties as a parallel to the 1600s. A new translation by Wendy Weckwerth premieres here. Director is Whitney Aronson. Stars Ivette Dumeng as Kristina with Sergio Castillo, Martin Boersma, Brent Shultz, Amy Fulgham,* Jacob Troy, Al Foote III , Steve Shoup,* Eric C. Bailey,* Michael Cirelli and Christine Nyland; stage manager, Hanna Delmore. Designs by Miriam Crowe, lighting; Jessa-Raye Court, costumes; Mikhail Poloskin, projections and graphics; and Andy Evan Cohen, sound; produced by Robert Greer, artistic director of the August Strindberg Repertory Theatre. * denotes a member of Actors' Equity.
