Open: 07/05/19- Close: 07/21/19 CRUSHING BABY ANIMALS
Long Island City. 2019. In an ego-driven and narcissistic world, two women possess the distinct anxiety of calling themselves artists. In a last ditch effort before they throw in the proverbial towel and become accountants, the pair begin work on what they hope will be their magnum opus, an ambitious and hellish physical-theatre adaptation of Dante’s Inferno. Crushing Baby Animals follows two traumatized women growing up in the millennial age as they accidentally open a cosmic wormhole that sucks them through space, time and the human mind. This meta work takes us on an uncharted and timely adventure through parallel dimensions and personal hells, bringing us face to face with our own antagonistic Dopplegangers, the perils of the human psyche, and the absurd pitfalls of human identity.

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.

MGM’s classic motion picture, with its timeless score and eternal 
allegories, and is enhanced by jazzy arrangements.  It follows John

the book by L. Frank Baum, with brilliant songs by lyricist E.Y. ("Yip") 
Harburg and composer Harold Arlen. The cast is multi-racial and features 
Latino, Black and Asian actors, fulfilling Yip Harburg's vision of a 
multicultural universe. Presented by Harlem Repertory Theater and Yip
