Open: 02/15/18- Close: 03/07/18 GYPSY
Secret Theatre Musical’s Richard Mazda [Hair, King Lear, A Chorus Line] proudly presents the ‘Mother of All Musicals’ GYPSY!  The Secret Theatre recent winning musical streak includes stunning productions of Cabaret, A Charlie Brown Christmas & A Chorus Line and we are thrilled to add this iconic musical to our ever-growing list!

 

Gypsy is deeply rooted in the 1920s and 30s, during a time when live theatre was pushing boundaries, becoming more risqué in an effort to retain audiences who were drawn to the allure of the “talkies.” Almost a century later, with sensationalism and scandal still the most powerful marketing motivators, The Secret Theatre’s production of Gypsy scales back the spectacle often associated with the show to instead focus on the heart of the piece –

Open: 02/15/18- Close: 03/02/18 TENTACLES
Dive into the slippery world of consent, fantasy, and female sexuality - through the lens of one slimy pornography genre.

‘TENTACLES’ is a tongue-in-cheek feminist exploration of Tentacle Porn, and the third collaboration between Tessa Flannery and Rebecca Cunningham. Grad student Tessa (Flannery) is presenting her doctoral thesis on feminist ravishment fantasies when the manterruptions of former-flame-turned-porn-star Chris (Fayne) thwart her presentation. As she unravels, her own secret fantasies come slithering in uninvited. This 50-minute funny, moving play leaves both performers and audience wondering how, in the #metoo era, we reconcile our fantasies with our feminism.

Produced by Voyage Theater Company at FRIGID NY 2018, featuring Fight/Intimacy Direction by Claire Warden.

Open: 02/14/18- Close: 03/03/18 THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME
In THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME, collaboratively created by the performance laboratory Door 10, audience members wear individual headphones to drop inside the imagined unconscious of avant-garde writer Gertrude Stein. Through this intimate approach, the audience experiences Stein’s repeated and unusual phrases as layers of thoughts, voices and memories interwoven into a rich soundscape.


THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME is a fractured journey through Stein’s daily routine in France during World War II as she struggles with writer’s block, listens to the radio, shares a meal with Alice B. Toklas, and confronts her own mortality. Dramatizing her friendships with Vichy official Bernard Faÿ and humanist playwright Thornton Wilder, the piece examines Stein’s forgotten
