Open: / / - Close: Open Run MAGNUM OPUS: A RETROSPECTIVE
In 2018, The People Movers’ choreographer and artistic director Kate Ladenheim and performer–designer Cecilia Lynn-Jacobs devised a collaborative project titled OH, CELINE and its heroine, Celine (née De La Croix). This fictional Brooklyn-based avant-garde dancer was conceived as a hilarious yet sincere caricature of a downtown artist. Through a sequence of events – sometimes harrowing, sometimes funny – the clueless New Age-y diva evolved into a provocative, Borat-like figure through whom her creators set to unmask the power structures in the contemporary art scene and our society at large. Over the last few months, Celine’s experiences unveiled through a long series of disarmingly pretentious social media posts, a mystifying art film, and surprising live appearances

Open: 07/10/19- Close: 07/27/19 Not Even The Good Things
NOT EVEN THE GOOD THINGS, a new play by rising playwright Joseph Scott Ford will play a limited run July 10th - July 27th at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street). Kelsey Claire directs a cast of seven in this high-octane, heartfelt and delightfully bizarre production.

NOT EVEN THE GOOD THINGS is a dark comedy where a millennial getaway falls apart in the presence of the ghost of a young  girl that only one character -- despite his best efforts -- is able to see. The play deals with a group of six 20-something-year-old friends who gather in a mountain cabin to enjoy a well-deserved vacation. It’s just that they can’t seem to enjoy anything, really. What is supposed to be a fun and carefree evening evolves into a drunken circus of attempted infidelity, nonsense, and weird religion.

A new story celebrating the extraordinary grass-roots efforts to save the Kansas City Philharmonic, with music and lyrics by Krista Eyler, book by Krista Eyler and Barbara Nichols.  

It’s 1953, and the symphonic sounds of the Kansas City Philharmonic are dimming as the iconic cultural institution fights for its existence. Amid this existential battle led by the grass-roots efforts of the determined Philharmonic staff, their own personal struggles ignite a crescendo of passions which has each of them fighting for their own survival. A poignant love story about saving something extraordinary and building something beautiful, this real-life story plucks at our heart-strings through legit voices and contemporary musical sounds.
