Patrick Rinn returns with his updated one-man show
“I NEVER PROMISED YOU ... ROSE GARDEN” at NYC’s famed Triad Theatre, (158 W. 72nd St.), for one performance only.

The autobiographical journey of a young boy’s dream to become performer, “I NEVER PROMISED YOU...” is the story of one man’s determination not be beaten down from the blows life has dealt him, as he triumphs to finally find his place in show business.

“I NEVER PROMISED YOU...” is a touching, funny and entertaining evening.

In Just One “Q”, Bertha and Julynne, bitter enemies, duke it out at the Broadbend Nursing Home in Arkansas over a game of scrabble.  Benny (T. Oliver Reid), an orderly, narrates the history of their acrimonious relationship.  Chaos, humor and closure abound in this amusing and tuneful musical.

Open: 09/30/16- Close: 10/02/16 WILD CHILD IN THE CITY
Tjasa Ferme combines her European sensibility and Kafka-esque sense of irony with down-to-earth toughness of a New York single girl who has seen it all. It is a story so unbelievable, twisted, and smelly that it must be true. The writer-performer recalls the top 10 experiences that occurred in her roughly 25 different rented apartments in New York. In the first scenario, as reported by WABC’s Eyewitness News, an intruder claims to be Tjasa’s boyfriend. In another, a subletter turns out to be a relapsed heroin addict who, in one of his fits, smears the walls with his own feces. Part dark comedy, part rant with a strong feminist twist, part immersive theater experience, WILD CHILD IN THE CITY proves with grit and wit that in New York City, the truth is often much stranger than fiction.
