Open: 03/21/19- Close: 04/14/19 SHAREHOLDER VALUE
THEATER FOR THE NEW CITY presents SHAREHOLDER VALUE, a new play by Tom Attea where stocks plummet and tensions soar. This play, which reunites the playwright with director Mark Marcante and composer Arthur Abrams, the team behind Heather Smiley for President, America’s Favorite Newscaster, and An American Worker is based loosely on the meltdown at General Electric. It centers around the struggles the CEO of a troubled conglomerate faces to deliver what he must every quarter, regardless of the problems the company runs into. The production will play a limited engagement from Thursday, March 21st through Sunday, April 14th at Theater For the New City (155 1st Avenue at East 10th Street).

Aquila Theatre, the foremost producer of touring classical theatre in the United States, presents William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein, adapted by Desiree Sanchez and Peter Meineck. Directed by Aquila’s Executive Artistic Director Desiree Sanchez, both plays will be performed in repertory.

Full of memorable characters- Puck, Oberon, Hippolyta, and Nick Bottom- and the famous “play with a play”, A Midsummer Night’s Dream deals with the universal theme of love, and its attendant complications: passion, lust, frustration, depression, confusion, and, of course, marriage.
