Through February 12, 2018 - New York

Jersey Boys is a musical biography of the Four Seasons—the rise, the tough times and personal clashes, and the ultimate triumph of a group of friends whose music became symbolic of a generation. Far from a mere tribute concert (though it does include numbers from the popular Four Seasons songbook), Jersey Boys gets to the heart of the relationships at the center of the group—with a special focus on frontman Frankie Valli, the small kid with the big falsetto. In addition to following the quartet's coming of age as performers, the core of the show is how an allegiance to a code of honor learned in the streets of their native New Jersey got them through a multitude of challenges: gambling debts, Mafia threats and family disasters. Jersey Boys is a glimpse at the people behind a sound that has managed to endure for over four decades in the hearts of the public.

Through February 19, 2018 - New York

Jersey Boys is a musical biography of the Four Seasons—the rise, the tough times and personal clashes, and the ultimate triumph of a group of friends whose music became symbolic of a generation.

In addition to following the quartet's coming of age as performers, the core of the show is how an allegiance to a code of honor learned in the streets of their native New Jersey got them through a multitude of challenges: gambling debts, Mafia threats and family disasters.

The Bushwick Starr is thrilled to collaborate with All For One Theater in presenting The Brobot Johnson Experience, an Afrofuturism transmedia piece written by and starring award-winning solo performer, actor, and poet, Darian Dauchan, who has appeared on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and abroad. The recently coined "Afrofuturism" genre is referred to by The New York Times as "...a political and cultural genre that projects black space voyagers, warriors and their heroic like into a fantasy landscape, one that has long been the province of their mostly white counterparts." At its core, Afrofuturism is about reimagining what the African American experience was and what it could be, and the show is designed to inspire both contemporaries and young people of color to tell outside-of-the-box-stories like Brobot Johnson. One hundred years from now a race of Hip Hop androids known as Brobots will form a unit, The Tribe Called Space Quest, to spread their message of peace, love, and dopeness all over the universe.

Or Current Resident - Theater for the New City
Through February 25, 2018 - New York

Part of our shared experience as Americans today is how we strain under the weight of the tech sector. Millionaires are made overnight and we endure the distortions of social media while gentrification pushes us out of our homes. When that happens, it rips us away from our history as if we never mattered. That's the idea behind "Or Current Resident," a new play by Joan Bigwood, which will be performed by Squeaky Bicycle Productions from February 3 to 25 at Theater for the New City, where it is a resident company. Brandi Varnell, Artistic Director of Squeaky Bicycle, directs.

"Josh: The Black Babe Ruth" - Theater For The New City
Through February 25, 2018 - New York City

The play dramatizes the life, loves and ultimately the tragic decline of Josh Gibson, who was perhaps the greatest slugger of the Negro leagues and who, some say, died of a broken heart in 1947, a short step from his prime as a player. The play, based on real events, shows Gibson struggling heroically to make it into the Big Leagues with emotional support from his good friend, the legendary pitcher Satchel Paige, and from the two women who are rivals for his heart--his common law wife and his mistress. Despite his majestic on-field performance, there are immovable obstacles, including resistance to Black players by Major League club owners and Gibson's own personal demons, which suffocate his chances.

Or Current Resident - Theater for the New City
Through February 25, 2018 - East Village

Presented by Theater for the New City and Squeaky Bicycle Productions Part of our shared experience as Americans today is how we strain under the weight of the tech sector.

Brandi Varnell, Artistic Director of Squeaky Bicycle, directs. The play is set in a Silicon Valley bungalow, from which three generations of the Finch family are in constant fear of being uprooted. The family patriarch, an engineer, has passed on, and the resilient matriarch, Mimi, holds the household together in cramped and rambunctious harmony. Everyone pools their earnings to rent month-to-month from a landlord who is yielding to the tech-driven real estate market. Ironically, the tech sector both suppresses and sustains the Finches, since their primary breadwinners--Mimi's two daughters--make t... (read more)

Featuring Homeland's Nina Hoss in a "magnetic" performance, director Thomas Ostermeier "turns the stage into a source of living debate, … a poignant political drama about change and the left's disregard of the working class." (The Guardian). His production provides a key understanding of what's gripping contemporary society.

Sound House - The Flea Theater
Through March 03, 2018 - New York

SOUND HOUSE is inspired by the haunted and often funny sound worlds of idiosyncratic 20th century British composer Daphne Oram, inventor of Oramics, a precursor to the synthesizer. This multi-strand sound-generating machine serves as a structural model for an architectonic play in which disparate eras, worlds and time signatures collide as Daphne’s present-day alter ego, Constance Sneed, investigates the condition of invisibility that plagues her, too, and envisions a world in which old ladies do not die alone or forgotten. The collaborators have developed the play not only as text but as a “multidimensional object” -- precisely constructed yet constantly shifting -- in which sound not only carves out story, but functions as an experiential road map to the distortions of time and space that are central to Oram's ideas. Their mission: create a true “sound house,” an immersive sonic experience. The cast for SOUND HOUSE will feature Vicky Finney Crouch (Piper Theatre Productions), James Himelsbach (The Talking Band’s The Room Sings at LaMama; The Assembly’s I Will Look Forward to This Later at The New Ohio), and Susanna Stahlmann (Hedda Gabler with Wandering Bark Theatre).

This is the Color Described by the Time - The Flea Theater
Through March 04, 2018 - New York

In THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME, collaboratively created by the performance laboratory Door 10, audience members wear individual headphones to drop inside the imagined unconscious of avant-garde writer Gertrude Stein. Through this intimate approach, the audience experiences Stein’s repeated and unusual phrases as layers of thoughts, voices and memories interwoven into a rich soundscape. THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME is a fractured journey through Stein’s daily routine in France during World War II as she struggles with writer’s block, listens to the radio, shares a meal with Alice B. Toklas, and confronts her own mortality. Dramatizing her friendships with Vichy official Bernard Faÿ and humanist playwright Thornton Wilder, the piece examines Stein’s forgotten politics and raises questions about the inextricable link between the political, personal, and artistic. The cast for THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME will feature Stephanie Roth-Haberle (Drama Desk Award nominee for Artist Descending a Staircase; The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), Christina Rouner (The Malcontent with Red Bull Theater; Coram Boy on Broadway), Ean Sheehy (Re...

We enter the home of two centenarian sisters: Sadie Delaney, a retired teacher, age 103 and her kid sister, Bessie Delaney, a retired dentist, age 101. Like molasses and vinegar, these daughters of a former slave were always temperamental opposites, but together they grew up in the Jim Crow South, lived in Harlem during its renaissance and had professional careers. While making dinner to remember their father’s birthday, the two sisters tell us of the last century as they lived it – through stories of racial injustice and personal strife, unified by faith, family, and time.

Following a sell-out run at London's Royal Court Theatre and subsequent transfer to the West End, Olivier and Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh (Atlantic/Broadway's The Beauty Queen of Leenane, The Lieutenant of Inishmore, The Cripple of Inishmaan) returns to Atlantic with his first US premiere in 8 years! "Hangmen is a triumphant return for Martin McDonagh! The sound of a playwright's reasserting his singular voice is among the most pleasing experiences one can have in the theater, and it isn't long into Hangmen before you can practically feel the audience grinning as one. McDonagh remains in command of an irrepressible gift." – The New York... (read more)

Platonov, or A Play with No Name - New Ohio Theatre
Through March 11, 2018 - New York

Blessed Unrest presents Platonov, or A Play with No Name Translated and adapted by Laura Wickens from the play by Anton Chekhov Directed by Jessica Burr A man of status with questionable sexual ethics runs rampage. A society fixated on the chaos of the moment ignores their collapsing economic system. A culture of open gun possession leads to rash and deadly consequences. Sounds familiar? Blessed Unrest’s raw and sexy rendition of Platonov, or A Play with No Name, in new translation and adaptation by playwright Laura Wickens, shows how Chekhov, nearly 150 years ago in Russia, was piercing through the issues that are highly relevant in America today. Her adaptation does away with all the father figures – except for the protagonist – and relocates the story to the rural South, a milieu in which the antidote to boredom is an entangled web of salacious scandals. Sometimes endearing and often reproachable, the titular character emerges as a man whose shortcomings run rampant due to enablers who surround him. Cast: Irina Abraham Chigiryov, Ashley Hildreth, Javon Minter, Darrell Stokes, Becca Schneider, and Taylor Valentine. Dramaturgy: Jessi Blue Gormezano Costume design: ... (read more)

With $1.1 million in its pockets, this musical is creating a huge buzz that is drawing ardent fans across the board. Its average ticket price of $141 remains one of the highest box office rates in its niche. This amazing hit was originally in book form and the creativity of Steven Levenson led to its seamless transition to a wave-making high school musical. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul wrote the musicals for Dear Evan Hansen. It is on track to be one of the most successful pieces of musical theater ever to originate in Washington. The plot is centered on the peculiar problem of communicating in a time where technology has made it easier to reach out to people. Evan Hansen is a friendless high school student who achieves Internet fame due to a misunderstanding he perpetuates in regards to his supposed closeness to another troubled classmate who committed suicide. The twists in the story line help to accentuate the challenges that the younger generation face in today’s world.
