Open: 06/27/19- Close: 06/30/19 AFTERPARTY: THE ROTHKO STUDIO
Afterparty will explore downtown artists, peeling back their stories to reveal multiple layers of NYC history before the former studio is converted into commercial space later this summer.

Peculiar Works Project’s creative team is designing an intimate, promenade journey through the historic architecture and artistic legacy of the building. Along the way, multi-disciplinary performances will reinterpret the legendary art parties attended by artworld luminaries—Jasper Johns, John Giorno, William S. Burroughs, Eve Hesse, Jonas Mekas, Roy Lichtenstein, LeRoi Jones, Diane DiPrima, Sol LeWitt, Andy Warhol, and more—against the backdrop of Rothko’s struggle between achieving success and selling out. Audiences and performers will sit around a table together in the paint-splattered space and experience a theatrical conjuring of artistic ghosts whose impact

Open: 06/20/19- Close: 06/29/19 BARE
Director Christina Sheehan’s staging of this cult favorite coming-of-age rock musical shines the looking glass on a group of high school students and their struggles at their private catholic boarding school.  Interwoven around a play within a play of Romeo & Juliet, this story of a young group of “fortune’s fools” is both timeless and timely. Join our modern star-crossed lovers as they struggle to come to terms with who they are and who the world thinks they should be and seek answers from their church, their friends, and ultimately from within themselves. “I defy you stars”.

Open: 06/21/19- Close: 07/06/19 THE COMEDIAN'S TRAGEDY
423 BCE.  The Gods are hungry.  The greatest city of her age, Athens has fallen: wracked with plague, war, drink, lust, gods, demons, and a dark fog of nihilism eating away at her light. Censored and labeled a pervert for standing up to the state, a young Aristophanes passes his nights in a haze of booze and sex, spitting into the face of tomorrow with the courage of the damned. When the unlikeliest of heroes emerges, can a guilty, drunken soul become Orpheus and sing life back into the ashes?  An edgy supernatural love story costumed in the present but taking place in Ancient Athens’ hedonistic height, The Comedian’s Tragedy is a rollercoaster of violence, love, revenge, low comedy and high ideas.

Open: 06/19/19- Close: 06/30/19 THE RITUAL
It’s Friday morning, first period at Senior Secondary School in Trinidad and Omega is pregnant. Through “ritual” portrayals of the world around them her friends, five students, come to understand that the real key to empowerment lies within them. The play is highly stylized—each actor plays one of the girls as well as members from their community—lecherous taxi drivers; sanctimonious bourgeois; attractive Rasta boys; pompous judges and frightened parents.

New Perspectives Theatre Company and Banana Boat Productions are reprising their acclaimed production of this ground-breaking play to celebrate its 40th Anniversary. It earned Mr. Constance both fame and notoriety when it was cut from Trinidadian national television in 1979 in mid-broadcast due to its themes, and the characters' treatment of the societal forces that work
