runs MARCH 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 28
rehearses  FEB 1 - MARCH 12
A gritty tale of con artists, grifters, deceit and love.

Eddie  Valentine moved to NYC to follow a woman.
He stayed in NYC to follow his dreams.
He exists in NYC as a bottom-feeder low-life.

 

His life is not as he hoped it would have turned out, but neither is anything.

THE KING OF POP
runs APRIL 30 - MAY 16
rehearses  MARCH 16 - APRIL 30

In an unbalanced world made of fact and fiction, the glamorous elite fight to keep the drab in the shadows where they belong.
And then a new ruler takes the throne and begins granting superstardom and 15 minutes of fame to the commoners.

A semi-factual tale of the art scene of the 60's and 70's in New York City and how it impacted fame, fortunes, social brackets and the very understanding of what art may be.

 

THE SCENE YOU NEED
runs  JUNE 18 - JULY 11
rehearses  MAY 4 - JUNE 18

Act 1:  Meet a motley group of characters from punk rockers to politicians.  From veterans to go-go dancers.
All are lost, lonely and scared in their own ways.

 

Act 2:  Flocks are gathered and grace is found.

 

When you can't find a lover and friends have faded to grey...
   When you're discarded on an island of misfits...
     When you're too tough to die...
Slip on your disco shoes or pick up a spray can.
Shout in a punk band or have sex in the subway.
    Find your scene.   Make it real.
