Open: 02/23/17- Close: 03/26/17 ASK JOSEPH
Theatergoers of New York will be presented with a unique drama in which the distinct echo of Chekhov’s “Seagull” is in a peculiar intertwine with the life and artistic career of the Noble Prize winner Joseph Brodsky. Even though the play is based on selected episodes from Brodsky’s biography, this story is not about any particular person. It is rather about those who had the courage to drastically change their lives by abandoning their familiar environment and who ended up on the verge of dramatic cultural and emotional split. Love, mystery, adultery, scandals and spies are just a few of turns and twists of the plot. “Ask Joseph” is an attempt to get a sneak peek into the mystery of human talent...

STEPS Theatre was founded in 1997.

While navigating the unsettling waters of young adulthood, twin sisters return home to find their father in a moment of crisis. Under the cover of late-night, small-town shadows, sleep is elusive, connections are frayed, and the southern summer heat presses in. An ethereal, honest, funny-sad play about seeing old faces with new eyes, and the liminal space between loss and letting go.
