The Eight Reindeer Monologues  | Open: 12/04/14 Close: 12/18/14
Sex, Lies and Antlers!  The Eight Reindeer Monologues by Jeff Goode.

Tired of Christmas Carol and Nutcracker? Here’s a holiday play for those who like their comedy like they like their Christmas chocolate - DARK. Scandal erupts at the North Pole when one of Santa's reindeer accuses him of sexual harassment. Artistic Pride Productions brings back their annual production of Eight Reindeer Monologues for FIVE PERFORMANCES ONLY!!  All performances at Joria Productions, 260 W. 36th street.  Tickets can be purchased for just $18 at theeight2014.bpt.me or call 1-212-252-4076 to make reservations.

 
After performing in multiple productions of The Eight Reindeer Monologues with Chicago's critically acclaimed Journeymen Theater Co., Artistic Pride Production’s Artistic Director, Anthony Wills Jr., brought his take on this hilarious comedy by Jeff Goode to New York audiences. Jack Helbig of The Chicago Reader raved that Journeymen director Frank Pullen makes "this Santa send-up both outrageous and touching” Following in the footsteps of Pullen, Anthony Wills mines the piece for its comedy while keeping the characters real and adding his own dark twist. Now in it’s second year, this production is expertly played by a troupe of actors who bring out the often subtle complexity of playwright Joe Goode's characters including Amy Fulgham*, Anna Foss Wilson*, Anthony Wills Jr*, Ben Curtis*, Dani Cervone, Erik Parillo*, James Robinson*, Joe Bowen*, Libya V Pugh*, Maria Silverman*, Meryl Thurston, Michael J. Robinson, Sophia L. Coffee, Stacey Haughton*, Tanesha Ford, Tom Martin* and Tommy Norton. Co-directed by Hal Lehrman and Anthony Wills Jr. Each performance is a new experience with different actors bringing their own takes to each roles every performance. 

Sexual misconduct in the work place...drunken Santa....corporate scandal cover up...flying reindeer..and CHEAP DRINKS!  What better way to spend a night at the theater!!! 

This play will make you laugh, cry and feel sort of icky the next time you see  Santa Clause.  Each show is completely different and it's so hilariously entertaining you just might want to see it again and again. 

Adult content and themes!!! Mature audiences only!!

The Piano Has Been Drinking (not Me)  | Open: 09/02/13 Close: 09/23/13
After a sold out performance at Don't Tell Mama, Artistic Pride Productions announces an extension of its cabaret performance, The Piano Has Been Drinking (Not me), at The Underground Lounge. 

Amy Winehouse, Jack Kerouac, Kurt Cobain, Billie Holiday, Tennessee Williams, Tom Waitts, Natalie Cole, Rufus Wainright... the list of artists and creative people who have had alcohol or substance abuse problems is a very long list. The Piano Has Been Drinking is a review (of sorts) that takes a look at artists who are inspired by their vices, celebrates the triumph of artists who have overcome them, pays tribute to those who were consumed by them and gives encouragement to those who may be struggling with vices.
