Open: 07/19/16- Close: 08/28/16 CRIME AND PUNISHMENT
This summer, acclaimed theater director Aleksey Burago and The Russian Arts Theater and Studio continues its 2015-2016 season with Fyodor Dostoevsky's magnum opus Crime and Punishment. In the hot slums of St. Petersburg lives Raskolnikov, a former student struggling with debt and disillusionment. Believing himself to be a superior man, he soon executes a plan to kill and rob an old pawnbroker, arguing that her money can be used for good deeds, while ridding the world of a worthless parasite. As the growing voice of his conscience sets in, Raskolnikov soon finds the noose of his own guilt tightening around his neck. Join the Russian Arts Theater and Studio as it brings one of the greatest novels to life at the West End Theater and embark upon a journey into the mind of a killer and his search for redemption.

West End Theater : 263 West 86th St.

“Ghetto-Hippie-Arab-Commie-China Doll” Aya was shaped by the eclectic community of New York City. But Aya’s father, an Egyptian-American world-traveler, remained a mystery, as did her Muslim family. In this solo musical, Aya enacts the world she came from and the family she went in search of. With a range of accents, voices, and zany characters, Aya’s story deals with contemporary conflicts – identity, the culture war, Islamophobia, all while asking Eh Dah – what is this?!
