Venue: ( Clarion Theatre)

Producer: ( The Seeing Place Theater)
The Seeing Place Theater
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Variety says: Rebecca Gilman offers up a tale of Gotham singledom you won't be seeing any time soon on 'Sex and the City.' A disturbing chiller about a woman whose life of accomplishment is quickly destroyed by a disturbed admirer, the play works powerfully at its most basic level…

Theresa Bedell is a successful reporter in New York who loves her work and the life she has made for herself. A relationship with a man would complete the picture and so she agrees to go on a blind date with a friend of a friend. Tony is attractive and funny, but Theresa isn't sure, and after a second date she's convinced they have nothing in common and sees no point in continuing the relationship. Tony, though, thinks otherwise. What at first seems like persistence on his part grows into obsession, and Theresa's annoyance with Tony turns to terror as he begins to threaten her and those around her. Ultimately, Theresa must fight to save herself from being erased by Tony's actions which call into question the assumptions at the very heart of romantic pursuit.

By offering these two plays together we're engaging our audience in a deep and multi-faceted conversation about gender relations in the United States, says TSP Artistic Director, Brandon Walker.

BOYS' LIFE
 
What happens when boys and girls don't do as they're told?
 
Venue: ( Clarion Theatre)

Producer: ( The Seeing Place Theater)
The Seeing Place Theater
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Told in a series of fast-paced, sharply etched scenes, the play traces the misadventures of three former college buddies now seeking to make their way in the big city—and with various women of their acquaintance. Moving along briskly, with its mood of satirical humor brilliantly sustained, the play dissects and anatomizes the male narcissism—and protracted adolescence—which characterizes its protagonists and, in the end, makes it hilariously clear that it is actually the women who possess the qualities of manhood and maturity which their deluded lovers so desperately lay claim to. …BOYS' LIFE is the most balanced and intelligent comment on the battle of the sexes I've seen in a long time… —The New Yorker.

City: NY

Additional Notes:
The HRT will open its 2015-16 season with Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical theatre masterwork, IN THE HEIGHTS. The cast of 20 will bring this eclectic score to life in a bold new expressionistic interpretation. The environmental seating arrangement will transfix the audience as the young and energetic cast sings and dances throughout four separate performance areas in the newly renovated Tato Laviera Theatre – often a few feet away from the audience. IN THE HEIGHTS won the 2008 Tony awards for BEST MUSICAL and BEST ORIGINAL SCORE. Charles Isherwood wrote in his New York Times review:When this musical erupts in one of its expressions of collective joy, the energy it gives off could light up the George Washington Bridge for a year or two.
