Open: 10/05/18- Close: 10/27/18 BETTY'S SUMMER VACATION
Betty’s Summer Vacation

by Christopher Durang


"A Raucous Satire of Media & Pop Culture"

 

Looking for a little rest and time to herself, Betty rents a summer share at the beach. But Betty’s luck turns to delicious lunacy when this sensible Everywoman gets drawn into the chaotic world of some very unsavory housemates – her friend Trudy who talks too much; the lewd, seminaked Buck, who tries to have sex with everyone; and Keith, a possible serial killer who hides in his room with a mysterious hat box. With sand between her toes, walking a thin line between sanity and survival, poor Betty will leave her summer vacation more terrorized than tan.

July 6 - July 28
At the Gene Frankel Theatre

 

Venue:
Gene Frankel Theatre : 24 Bond St.
Open: 09/27/18- Close: 10/14/18 EXPERIMENTING WITH KATZ
EXPERIMENTING WITH KATZ will open on Thursday, September 27th for a limited engagement, through Sunday, October 14th at TheatreLab (357 West 36th Street, NYC). The production, which officially opens on October 4th, spotlights the coming out process and its repercussions (both the serious and absurd), and is produced by the New Ambassadors Theatre Company and Julia Botero. This new comedy is written by David Adam Gill and directed by John Robert Tillotson. EXPERIMENTING WITH KATZ highlights the absurdity of those who use their ignorance about the LGBTQ community as justification for their actions, while ultimately harming the very people they love.

 

Performances of EXPERIMENTING WITH KATZ are on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays @ 7:30pm, with matinees on Saturday & Sunday @ 2:30pm.

Venue:
THEATERLAB : 357 W36th street
Open: 10/03/18- Close: 10/04/18 THE DYBBUK

Ansky 1913, in a modern version written by Roy Chen, at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College (524 West 59 Street).  The Dybbuk, arguably the most iconic play of the entire canon of Jewish drama, tells the story of a young Hasidic woman who became possessed on the eve of her wedding by the dead spirit of her beloved, a young scholar whom her parents forbade her to marry. The esteemed Gesher Artistic Director Yevgeny Arye directs the cast of 25.

The schedule of performances is October 3 and 4 at 8 pm only.

Venue:
Gerald W. Lynch Theater : 899 Tenth Avenue
