Theater for the New City Presents
Skybox
Thursday, November 08, 2012 through Sunday, December 09, 2012

A comedy of class warfare and the battle of the sexes set in the luxury box of a Major League Baseball park

Length: 1 hr 30 mins
Intermission: None
Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

If "Adam's Rib" and "Moneyball" mated and begat a play, it might be "Skybox." The play, written by Walt Stepp and directed by Lissa Moira, is the successor to their collaboration on "Siren's Heart: Norma Jean and Marilyn in Purgatory," a play by Stepp which started at Theater for the New City and is now running Off-Broadway at the Actors Temple Theatre. Theater for the New City will present "Skybox" November 8 to December 2 in its Cino Theater.

In the play, a one-percenter named Richard Gunn, owner of a struggling Major League Baseball team, is caught canoodling with a young woman in the team's skybox by the Channel 8 Skycam. Being wealthy and influential, he's able to contain the news break, but not the accident that the young woman--his smart talking personal assistant, Kelly--has lost her diaphragm case among the cushions of the couch in the skybox. Her search for the item activates the suspicions of Richard's trophy wife, Rachel. The loyal stadium facilities manager stands ready to take the fall for his boss, but Rachel incites a confrontation that could bring down the whole ball club. The play lashes out wittily at the cheekyness of our moneyed class and the double standard that exists for men and women regarding adultery. It is filled with snappy repartee and role reversals.
