The world premiere of Blessing’s “A View of the Mountains”, directed by Evan Bergman, begins April 24 and will run through May 25 at 179 Broadway in Long Branch. The play explores how the current extreme political polarization in our society has come home to roost and threatens not only our nation, but the intimate ties that bind families.

 

John Honeyman is a former arms negotiator who represented the U.S. in the early 1980’s and held secret meetings with his Russian counterpart to defuse the explosive tensions that divided the two nuclear super-powers.

Part party, part play, this will be an evening of dancing, live music, sarcasm, custom cocktails, and Rattigans' prescient text.

Open: 04/25/14- Close: 04/27/14 BOOK CLUB.
A book club meeting in 1953 starts to unravel as recent gossip surrounding Claire's 6-year old son leaks into the conversation and debate surrounding an even more radical piece of popular young adult literature, The Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger. Tensions rise in an unusual, uncomfortable display of a sugar-coated war of subtext and banter between these 5 society women. Claire must find a way to stand up for her son and herself, without alienating her family from the entire neighborhood. Flipping between 1953 and Claire's earlier years in the late 1940's, the story shows a woman who was born too early trying to survive in suburban America during the era of the Cold War, and begs the question: What happens when our society fails to protect our children's innocence? And when, or why, does a mother cross the line of protection?

Hannah Schwadron

Blueface is a current series of solo dances made in relation to the artist's research on "Jewface" performance tropes; those bodily excesses of too much (talking, needing, wanting) and not enough (dancerliness, feminine appeal) that become the recognizable "things" of performing Jewishly. The improvisational score is at once a self-incision into the autoexotic the performance of self as un/sexy otherand a movement reflection on the joke-work of a "funny girl" body.

Ribbon Candy is a potent drug, perverting the streets, and being the demon of choice. Crime waits for no man, and the learning curve is overshot as soon as you step foot on the road. These are stories from 3 AM, on a muggy, rainy night. Steam billows from sewer hatches while you've got gin on your breath, and an empty wallet from being crushed in pool.

Then you stumble onto a dealer, and he says you can fly over the rainbow...but take the purple pill. Purple is by far the best.

Six characters will tell their stories, intertwined by something other than fate, and brought together by the most human and no longer human of conditions death and each other.

This Don Juan story by Vit Horejs of Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theatre is not a long dusty opera, nor is it unsuitable for the kids. In 18th century Europe, Don Juan ("Don Shajn") was among the top "hits" of the Czech marionette repertoire when the only theatre truly available in small towns and villages were shows by itinerant puppeteers. Their plays were a whimsical mixture of "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous," heroic legends, and rudimentary pre-Shakespearean tragedies. There is nothing very glamorous about the character of Don Juan in this Czech puppet playhe ends up as a common robber, hungry, rejected by all his former conquests and riled constantly by his inept servant Kasparek, the earthy Bohemian cousin of Mr. Punch and Leporello.

After a sold-out run at FringeNYC, an extension at The Players Theatre, and a run at The Duplex Cabaret, the critically acclaimed hit comedy Gay Camp will return to The Duplex beginning February 28th and running every Friday night.

Start with a deliciously evil headmaster facing off against a loud-and-proud young camper, throw in a few electrified fences, disco balls, Cher power ballads, gay Twister, Michele Bachmann surprises, slow-motion fantasies, lessons in Straight vs. Gay, whips, handcuffs, flannel, and more innuendos than you can shake a dildo at, and you've got Gay Camp.

Hikari is a Multimedia Performance experience which combines contemporary dance, live music, video feed, ambience lighting and filmed projections. The play itself last 40 minutes and is presented as triptych with two interludes, where all the elements are featured.

Hikari is a triptych which reveals the constant struggle between opposed forces that are paradoxically intertwined. From darkness, comes light. With light, comes searching. The search begets a desperation that threatens to consume it all and drag the subject to the deep dark, descending into the underworld. Nevertheless, even when sunk in the depths, the individual can surmount this disposition and grows, expanding like a song, like waves to light, from larva to butterfly from searcher to Illuminated, going from internal journey to the plenitude of the Self.

Hikari. Original idea by Dora Hagerman and Héctor Murrieta.

A trilogy of one-act plays, supported by two monologues, all written by Stella Maria Perry, take us into a strange and terrible world. Join us on March 8th at the Producers Club Theatres in New York City. The one-acts have all had their own premiers but have never before been performed together.

First on the menu is "Carte Blanc", featuring the talented Schuyler Mastain (Polonius in "HMLT") as Amador, Sarah Davie as Libby, and Kendra Slack as Madam. "Carte Blanc" will be directed by Deborah Mangrum-Price. "Carte Blanc" was first produced at the Cabrini Repertory Theater in 2014.
