Open: 02/25/17- Close: 02/25/17 Safe
It's been five years since the alpines began playing baseball with the Negro League but games away from winning the World Series, the team is faced with a difficult decision that may detour their road to success!

Venue:
Pearl Studios : 500 W. 8th Avenue 12th Fl.
Open: 02/28/17- Close: 04/01/17 SUNDOWN, YELLOW MOON
While navigating the unsettling waters of young adulthood, twin sisters return home to find their father in a moment of crisis. Under the cover of late-night, small-town shadows, sleep is elusive, connections are frayed, and the southern summer heat presses in. An ethereal, honest, funny-sad play about seeing old faces with new eyes, and the liminal space between loss and letting go. 

A nighttime play with songs by Rachel Bonds
Music & Lyrics by The Bengsons

Amanda and Matthew love New York City! But NYC loves no one! Subway people cough into your ear, snowdrifts are trash, and for every rat you see there are 20 hiding in the shadows. Across the country, sunny Los Angeles beckons. Can our comedy heroes resist the siren song? Will they give up the Big Apple, and escape to LA? Click for Tickets  Rotten Apple Comedy

Open: / / - Close: Open Run THE JAG
Seventy year old "Chick" Chicarella has one prized possession, a 1966 Jaguar that is in desperate need of repair. When his son suggests that they finish the car to sell it off, old family wounds and failures rise to the surface. Unable to complete the task themselves, they hire Carla, who is an expert in Jaguars, but woefully lacking in social skills. Together, the three learn some hard lessons about repairing cars and smoothing out life's jagged edges.

Three poignant, tantalizing plays by two pioneering women playwrights, exploring gender roles, race, and death in America’s early twentieth century.

 

Trifles by Susan Glaspell, directed by Aimee Todoroff
A "ripped from the headlines" murder-mystery is the inspiration for Glaspell's iconic play about a seemingly diabolical crime without a motive. While the investigators look to the usual clues, only their wives, Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters, are able to clearly see course of events that lead to a woman's desperate act.  Director Aimee Todoroff states, “The discussion around the inclusion of women's perspectives in our public discourse, especially in politics and media, has been a hot topic in 2016.
