Open: 11/14/16- Close: 12/31/16 That Golden Girls Show! - A Puppet Parody
Set in that sassy Miami house in 1985, 'That Golden Girls Show!' is a brand new show that parodies classic Golden Girls moments - with puppets! Get set for an evening of cheesecake, laughter, jazzercise, shoulder pads, sex, and the elegant art of the quick-witted put down. 

From Sophia's get-rich-quick schemes, to Rose's tales from St Olaf, Blanche's insatiable hunt for men and the Fountain of Youth, to Dorothy's daily struggle to make sense of her life, manage her roommates all the while fending off a certain, pesky ex-husband, once and for all. Devoted fans will fondly remember our four girls from Miami, and for the first-timers, this will be a joyful introduction to the brilliance of that television series.

Open: 12/01/16- Close: 12/16/16 CLOVER: A NEW EXPERIMENTAL DRAMA WRITTEN BY ERIK EHN
A new experimental theater drama about America’s history of violence by Erik Ehn, directed by Glory Kadigan with original music by Maya Solovéy and original puppet design & puppetry direction by Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew.

A killer walks in a circle, finds a killer, circles the killed. Experimental writer Erik Ehn’s latest play about the violent and universal cycle of life follows the tragedy of Emmett Till and his mother that helped spur the Civil Rights Movement as well as three other stories, illustrating America’s history of violence towards those most vulnerable. Society cannot hide from any of this, from losing, moving, seeing, longing.

Theater For The New City : 155 First Avenue
Open: 11/17/16- Close: 12/11/16 NO MAN'S LAND
If a modern day fairy tale is a dream come true, then whose dream does it belong to and at what cost? Four actors set out to wrestle to the stage the true story of American Dad, Jeremiah Heaton, who planted a flag in the African desert to make his daughter a real Princess. They attempt to expose this modern day fairy tale’s roots in systemic racism and white privilege. What follows is an outrageous, inappropriate and sometimes painful confrontation with their own bias as they take the journey to a new story.

The cast will feature Michael Ables, Mariah Freda, Jean Goto, and Brian Demar Jones with Lighting/Projection Design by Nic Christopher, Set Design by Sarah Edkins, Sound Design by Christopher Gillard, and Costume Design by Lux Haac, and Dramaturgy by Lynde Rosario. Production Stage Manager will be Allison Newcombe.
