The Complete & Condensed Stage Directions Of Eugene O'Neill Volume 2

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.

The Crazy Lady Of Chaillot
Friday, April 04, 2014 through Monday, April 28, 2014

Venue: ( Medicine Show Theatre)
Medicine Show Theatre
Producer: ( Medicine Show Theater)
Medicine Show Theater
City: New York

Additional Notes:
A sinister plot to demolish Paris by drilling for oil beneath it is revealed (in this age of fracking, sound familiar?) and then foiled by the Crazy Lady, her three friends and the good guys, who set a hilarious gtrap for the "one-percenters" (as we would call them today), baited with their own greed. Along the way, love too triumphs.

The Norwegians
Wednesday, October 02, 2013 through Sunday, April 27, 2014
 
A comedy about gangsters. Norwegian gangsters. The nice kind. There's somebody else for everyone.
 
Venue: ( The Drilling CompaNY Theatre)
The Drilling CompaNY Theatre
Producer: ( The Drilling Company)
The Drilling Company
City: New York

Additional Notes:
THE NORWEGIANS is a bitter comedy about women scorned in Minnesota and the really, really nice gangsters--Norwegian hit men--they hire to whack their ex-boyfriends. Olive is a transplant from Texas and Betty is a transplant from Kentucky, but neither of them was prepared for the Norwegian men they would fall in love with there: the practical, warm, thoughtful, destructive, evil, jilting kind. If you're a hit man in Minnesota, 83% of your clients want to take out their ex (Oofda!). Olive has referred Betty to Gus and Tor, a partnership in the whacking business. What Tor doesn't know is that Gus has been sleeping with the clients. What Olive doesn't know is that Gus is Betty's own ex, and she has already put out a hit on him with a Swiss firm. Can Betty call off the job in time to let Gus do his? Should she?
