Open: 11/25/17- Close: 11/27/17 LADY OF THE CASTLE - A GHOSTLY POST-HOLOCAUST CHAMBER OPERA
A ghostly post-Holocaust chamber opera based on a true story and an Israeli play by Lea Goldberg with music and lyrics by Mira J. Spektor. Lissa Moira directs a cast of four, including Darcy Dunn, Douglas McDonnell, Bennett Pologe, and Amanda Yachechak.

Relevant to today's anti-refugee, anti-semitic political climate, Lady of The Castle is set in 1947 after the Holocaust. Is there a young Jewish girl still hidden in the old castle? Based on a true story and Lea Goldberg’s Israeli play, Lady of the Castle is a chamber opera about illusion, reality, love, betrayal, death and hope.

Venue:
Scandinavia House - Victor Borge Hall : 58 Park Avenue
Open: 11/30/17- Close: 12/17/17 WHERE HAS TOMMY FLOWERS GONE?
Constructed as a series of vignettes, skits and brief incidents, the play portrays the life and attitude of one Tommy Flowers—irrepressible cut-up, determined freeloader and disenchanted rebel against society. In the course of his adventures he befriends a destitute old actor, acquires an oversized sheep dog (his best friend) and finds love with a beautiful music student (whom he meets in the ladies' room at Bloomingdale's). But as Tommy moves from scene to scene, his bright red shopping bag at the ready for pilfering, and his agile wit poised to hoodwink everyone in sight, we also glimpse the root causes of his alienation—his ailing, complaining mother back home; an unhappily married brother; a former girlfriend who has settled for a suffocating domesticity; and a venturing forth that has brought more rejection than acceptance.
