Dan Lauria, star of TV’s The Wonder Years and Sullivan & Son as well as Broadway’s Lombardi and the hit musical A Christmas Story, pens a killer comedy about a couple of old-time wise guys who just want to have a good Italian meal, a few laughs, and tie-up some loose ends before dessert.  The cast includes Dan Lauria, Ray Abruzzo, who played Little Carmine Lupertazzi for four seasons on HBO’s The Sopranos, and Richard Zavaglia, veteran of stage and screen, who has appeared in such films as Donnie Brasco with Al Pacino and Johnny Depp.

Open: 09/04/14- Close: 09/18/14 DRUNKLE VANYA
New York City's ONLY Boozy Chekhov!

Oh, the (Cards Against) Humanity! That's right, people. Get ready for family game night gone terribly awry when we pair up Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya with “the party game for horrible people.” In this unique and beautifully tragic adaptation, we’ll play games, enjoy practical jokes and take shots of all kinds with our favorite angsty Russians! What could be more refreshing than slinging back some chilled vodka with Three Day Hangover’s very own Drunkle Vanya?

Three Day Hangover co-founder Lori Wolter Hudson (R+J: Star-Cross’d Death Match) directs a cast

Open: 09/12/14- Close: 09/27/14 Talk Radio
Inspired by the 1984 murder of controversial shock jock Alan Berg, TALK RADIO is set in a Cleveland radio station over the course of Barry Champlain’s two-hour broadcast as he’s being scrutinized that night by producers fixated on taking the show national, and fueled as always by coffee, cocaine and Jack Daniel’s. Barry’s jousts with his unseen callers—ranging from a white supremacist to a woman obsessed with her garbage disposal—are interspersed with confrontations by his ex-deejay pal and his sometime girlfriend/producer.

Open: 09/12/14- Close: 09/27/14 THE CLUB
In the innocuous boardroom of an Australian Rules football club, corruption and greed reign supreme. The Club, an Australian cultural classic debating teamwork and greed, is about a team that hasn't won a game all season, despite forking out a small fortune to acquire a star player who couldn't care less about football. The coach wants to quit, the players threaten to strike, and the club president is embroiled in scandal. But the club's devious administrator, in cahoots with a former player and coach, would dispense with them all if it meant the team had a shot at the championship.
