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.

Charlotte's Song
Thursday, April 24, 2014 through Sunday, May 11, 2014
 
PERFORMANCE-BASED WORK BY NANCY FERRAGALLO, DIRECTED BY ANDREAS ROBERTZ AND MARIO GOLDEN, CHOREOGRAPHED BY NANCY FERRAGALLO AND CELESTE HASTINGS.
 
Venue: ( Theater for the New City)
Theater for the New City
Producer: ( Theater for the New City)
Theater for the New City
City: New York

Additional Notes:
"Charlotte's Song" by Nancy Ferragallo is a performance-based experimental work that explores a daughter's reality of growing up with her schizophrenic mother and how that impacted her life and healing process. It is a poetic collective of monologues, dialogue scenes and movement theater in the style of the Tanz Theater of Pina Bausch. The work is co-directed by Andreas Robertz and Mario Golden and co-choreographed by Nancy Ferragallo and Celeste Hastings. A Cocteauvian story is told through the lens of fragmented narratives and movement sequences. A mother (Carol Beaugard) and her daughter (Yvette Quintero) are so alienated from one another that they communicate primarily by letters. A dancer (Celeste Hastings) dances the mother's inner life. As the play progresses, the daughter explores issues of betrayal and abandonment and comes to an ultimate understanding of her mother's behavior. All is played out in the presence of a doll, designed by Maria Hupfield, who bears witness to the daily life of both women. In shifting auditory landscapes, we hear the language of disconnect that announces the underlying fragility of the mother: both her physical and mental collapse. Rendered in movement sequences, a clothing ritual speaks for her recurrent psychotic episodes. The play was born out of Nancy Ferragallo's experiences with her own mother, who died when Nancy was 37. Ferragallo reports that the idea for this play "tugged at her and waited decades to be born." The production contains both spoken text and Tanz Theater reminiscent of the style of Pina Bausch. Ferragallo's background is primarily in the field of dance. She believes that by transferring rituals drawn from the mother's psychotic episodes to the dancer rather than through the text, she conveys a fuller expression of the mother's life. In the production, Celeste Hastings dances the mother's inner life, in movement sequences which include undressing and redressing herself in various sets of

City: New York

Additional Notes:
"From the age of three until the age of six I enjoyed a rather delightful sexual relationship with my father...." so begins Confessions of a Cuban Sex Addict, written and designed by Michelangelo Alasa', a walk through, theatrical installation filled with video, found objects and words. Now, Alasa' shares his personal journey through Confessions, a snapshot of his queer coming-of-age experience during the 1960s. Cathartic in nature, this performative exhibition reminds us of our deepest secrets, darkest longings, and biggest triumphs. "The true stories of writer/director/producer Michelangelo Alasa', the experience is voyeuristic and thrilling in a way that illusory theater often cannot emulate. Confessions is a treat for an adult audience who appreciate truth-seeking, an emotionally naked look at a skilled artist willing to expose both his greatest assets and most raw relationships." Shane Reader "Michelangelo Alasa's projections are mesmerizing....His memorabilia from Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe and others who suffered while inspiring the world is fascinating to see on the way in and out of the performance space. This review does not come close to how it feels to see the show, which is a challenging but constructive experience."

“Your certainty of the growth of anti-Semitism in Ukraine...does not correspond to the actual facts. It seems you have confused Ukraine with Russia, where Jewish organizations have noticed growth in anti-Semitic tendencies last year.”
– March 26, “Open Letter of Ukrainian Jews to Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin”

What is the political situation in Ukraine post-Maidan? What is the new Ukrainian government’s attitude towards its Jews and minorities? On March 26, leaders of the Ukrainian Jewish community published an open letter in The New York Times disputing Putin’s claims of high levels of anti-Semitism and accusing him of using these claims to destabilize the region. But others are expressing deep concerns about recent anti-Semitic violence in Ukraine, as well as about the Svoboda party, a junior partner in the protest movement, which is overtly anti-Semitic, and some would argue, neo-Nazi.

Join Josef Zissels, the preeminent leader of Ukrainian’s Jewish community, for a look at the political situation in Ukraine today, Ukraine’s relationship to Russia and the EU, and what Ukrainian Jews and minorities can expect from the new government.

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.
