City: New York

Additional Notes:

A pioneer for females in law enforcement, Mary Shanley joined the NYPD in 1931, quickly becoming a Gotham all-star and tabloid sensation. Making a staggering 1000 career arrests, she became the 4th woman in history to make detective 1st grade, and then nearly lost it all. Dead Shot Mary grapples with the legend of Mary Shanley, a trail blazer, a maverick, and a true New York original.

Additional Notes:
THE FOLK SINGER tells a story of a young musician who wants to write songs as relevant today as those of Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez were in their heyday. Working with like-minded local musicians, he and the others compose new songs and stage a folk festival? for the 21st century, with the hope of reaching a wider audience through social media. “I wrote the book and lyrics to THE FOLK SINGER in order to create a character-based work for the theater that would comment on todays times,” explains Tom Attea. “I believe that?, given the severity of the problems in America and around the world, new folk songs would be expected to have a greater presence than they do. The centerpiece of the show, ?A Folk Festival for Today, ?provided ?the occasion ??to write lyrics with contemporary substance.” Set design is by Mark Marcante, with lighting design by Alexander Bartienieff, sound design by Alex Santullo,? and prop design is by Lytza Colon. Danielle Hauser is the assistant director.? The performance schedule for THE FOLK SINGER is as follows: Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8pm with matinees on Sundays at 3pm. Tom Attea (book and lyrics) has written thirteen other produced shows, beginning with Brief Chronicles of the Time, which was presented as a showcase by The Actors Studio, where he was a member of The Playwrights Unit for 10 years. Since then, he has written the book and lyrics for ten musicals and two plays that have been presented by Theater for the New City. Tom received a TNC/Jerome Foundation emerging playwright grant and is a member of The Dramatists Guild. Arthur Abrams (composer) began his frequent collaboration with Tom Attea at The Actors Studio, while working with director Charles Friedman on the revue Brief Chronicles of the Time.? His last two collaborations with Tom were the musicals An American Worker and Heather Smiley for President. A ballet score by Abrams, The Velveteen Rabbit, was given its first performance in July of 2016, at the Ha

Ubu Rex
 
In the future of New York City, that is to say nowhere, one building stands taller than all the rest. Over a landscape of skyscrapers, The Fecal Tower looms - the tallest building on the planet. At the very top is the penthouse where the CEO lives with his family; far down below, in the First Basement, is the home of Papa and Mama Ubu.

Additional Notes:
Papa Ubu is the slovenly Superintendent of the Fecal Tower, content to glut himself on porn and PBR. But his wife, Mama Ubu, is a true Lady (Macbeth) who is always scheming for more. Mama is hungry for riches and power; Papa is just hungry. Together they plot to overthrow the CEO and put Papas fat ass on the throne. With Mamas wiles and Papas propaganda they rally a band of thugs and thieves to help them ascend The Fecal Tower to power! Papa proves himself as a ruthless ruler and Mama as a cunning…well shes not very nice, as all embark on an odyssey to become: the ruling class.The Public will watch, helpless as the travesty of Ubu Rex unfolds across your screens, mirroring the absurdity of our present-day techno-oligarchy. Mama and Papa Ubu are just the latest upstarts in the race for survival of the richest. A scathing satire presented in the spirit of absurdity and irreverence that made the original a classic, Ubu Rex takes you on a wild journey to a garish and violent future, without ever leaving the Five Boroughs.“This elevator goes up, just as fast as it goes down.”-Ubu
