THE HOLLYWOOD ADRIANA, A Cautionary Tale of Damaged Good - Dixon Place
July 13, 2018 - New York

The breakneck pace of THE HOLLYWOOD ADRIANA is driven by the collision of prose, screenplay, poetry, and opera libretto. In this tragic-comic modern-day love child of Reader's Theatre and Medieval morality plays, Rupert's increasingly bizarre erotic encounters telescope time and place into a hallucinogenic continuum of NOW. Inspired by the murder of silent movie icon Ramon Novarro, the worlds of film, ballet, and opera; Sarah Bernhardt, Maya Plisetskaya, Hector Berlioz; hustlers, drag queens, athletes, and altar boys, all converge in a surreal universe of obsession, love, innocence lost, murder, suicide, and catharsis.

Wicked - Gershwin Theatre
Through July 14, 2018 - New York

So much happened before Dorothy dropped in. Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another girl, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one "good," and the other one "wicked." With a thrilling score that includes the hits "Defying Gravity," "Popular" and "For Good," Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as "the defining musical of the decade." Time Magazine cheers, "if every musical had the brain, the heart, and the courage of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place." The Gershwin Theatre on 50th Street and Broadway is that magical place. From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, Wicked—the untold true story of the Witches of Oz—transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story. It will send your spirits soaring to heights you'll never forget.

"The Property," Ben Josephson - The Clurman Theatre
Through July 14, 2018 - New York

"The Property," a new play by Ben Josephson, is the story of a woman, two men she has loved and one man she is tempted to love, and the teenage son she stifles with good intentions. Irene, once carefree and artistic but now a low-level corporate manager alarmed by the erosion of her family's financial security, imposes two measures to shore the family up. She rents out a property -- the garden cottage that has been her current husband's retreat -- to a teacher who infatuates her. Then she inveigles her ex, who is her son's vehemently estranged but influential father, into launching the boy on a lucrative career path. What emerges is the transformation of five people on edge, and constrained by an increasingly ungenerous world, into selves that would horrify the selves they once had been. New Light Theater Project will present the play's world premiere directed by Robert Kalfin, founder of the Chelsea Theatre Center (winner of five Tony Awards, four Tony nominations and 21 Obies), who has directed widely on Broadway and Off-Broadway and was named a Legend of Off-Broadway by the Off-Broadway Alliance in 2015.

El Credito - Repertorio Espanol
Through July 14, 2018 - New York

The play presents an unforgettable story of an ordinary man and his attempts at being granted a small bank loan that is absolutely necessary for him to continue on with his life. He cannot offer any guarantees or properties, only his word of honor and a promise that he will eventually pay back every single penny. The rejection of the loan by the Branch Manager leaves them both in a very delicate and hilarious situation. In typical fashion, playwright Jordi Galcerán (author of Burundanga) surprises his audiences with twists and turns until the end.

What lies beyond his rise to mainstream success as a commercial dancer will be sure to shock as audiences witness his metamorphosis into an infamous public figure and "criminal".

And definitely gay. Skintight assays the nature of love, the power of attraction, and the ways in which a superficial culture persists in teaching its children that all that matters is what's on the inside.
