Open: 09/24/15- Close: 10/18/15 THE GRAY MAN
The Gray Man isn't real. He's a ghost story, a boogeyman mothers make up tales about to keep their children safe. A grieving young man named Simon listens to these bedtime stories outside his apartment window and yearns to leave the city he's so afraid of. But when he meets a little girl with an old soul who speaks of missing children, Simon can't help but feel trapped in his tenement house, where a familiar shadow waits in the darkness.

Open: 09/24/15- Close: 10/10/15 THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW: LABOR PAINS
True story: Clay’s about to become a daddy. There’s a baby boy on his way. The due-date? No lie… October 31st. A Halloween baby. And Clay is scared. Really scared.

There’s nothing more petrifying than one’s own impending parenthood, especially with the clock tick-tick-ticking away—so we here at The Pumpkin Pie Show have decided to explore those fatherhood-fears and bring them to the stage. Every story within this year’s show focuses on the primal paranoia of parenting, whether it be mammoth diaper discharges, flying the friendly skies with screaming kids, or coming up with compelling ways to convince your children to eat their din-din…

…Not to mention sasquatch erotica, ancient mystical runes, and a special homemade recipe for Jesus juice. This year’s Pumpkin Pie Show has it all. You’ve been warned.

Open: 09/24/15- Close: 09/26/15 WILDWOOD FLOWERS
The US premiere of Wildwood Flowers by Israeli-born, Germany-based choreographer Reut Shemesh will be a part of Theaterlab's ongoing Mi Casa Es Su Casa series, which presents an innovative range of international artists in sharp relief.

Wildwood Flowers received its world premiere in Cologne in February 2015. Shemesh will recreate the piece with four New York-based dancers: Karesia Batan, Jessica McCarthy, Maya Orchin and Schuyler Whittemore.

Wearing a mask–the action of covering/hiding the face–is the core of this movement piece. The figures form and re-form constructed identities through the use of white masks created by Mona Kakanj. Wildwood Flowers delves into the notion whether self (re)invention is possible. Do we simply obey norms deeply rooted in our education and socialization? Is being ourselves only a collection of conditions and experiences or are we able to tap into
