Open: 10/01/17- Close: 11/05/17 ACE
Lyle Courtney Productions presents the brisk new comedy written and performed by Emmy Award-winning Letterman writer Ted Greenberg.

Travel back to December 18, 1987 – the nine-year anniversary of Ted Greenberg's long overdue college paper on Edmund Spenser's The Fairie Queene. On that snowy Friday, Ted drives a New York City cab while his father Ace Greenberg runs Wall Street. Ted has one screaming deadline in front of him: turn the paper in by midnight or lose his chance to graduate from Harvard. Forever. It will take a wild ride through the Big Apple, his past and with a white collar felon before he’s able to come to grips with whether to be a dropout or not to be a dropout.

Open: / / - Close: Open Run ALMODOVAR DYSTOPIA
Commissioned by Dixon Place, ALMODOVAR DYSTOPIA by the renowned downtown dance artist Antonio Ramos and his outrageous company The Gangbangers is part Latino-flavored tribute to the Spanish film director, part humorous celebration of the LGBT culture, and part a bold political statement against the body-negative and repressed nature of the world we live in. This work, inspired by Pedro Almodovar’s flamboyant cinema, will play a limited engagement for six performances only, opening on Friday, September 15th and running every Friday and Saturday through September 30th. Featuring video, movement, spoken word and gourmet surprise, the piece makes its case for the affirmation of all things physical through Ramos’ trademark chaotic and joyful storytelling style. Parental guidance strongly cautioned.

Open: / / - Close: Open Run BLACKTOP HIGHWAY
Blacktop Highway, written and performed by the nationally renowned and groundbreaking artist John Fleck, is the next theatrical commission at Dixon Place.  One of the infamous NEA-4, Fleck has been a prominent theatrical figure since 1990 when he and three other performance artists’ National Endowment for the Arts grants were withdrawn after being contested in a precedent-setting Supreme Court case. In Blacktop Highway, Fleck embodies more than 10 characters in the play, inspired by classic horror cinema and Freud's theories of mind and ego.  The production is inspired by classic horror cinema and weaves video and virtuosic theatrical staging with John Fleck’s remarkable vocal qualities, leading the audience into a darkly hilarious world of sex, greed and religion.   Randee Trabitz is the director.
