|Reality.....15 Minutes Till The End Of The World
| Open: 06/20/13 Close: 06/30/13 - Manhattan Repertory Theatre
This story is about a struggling writer who is stuck in a job writing for a small "rag" "gossip" magazine about D list celebrities and what they are up to, and his good friend that is making a name for herself in the world of television and cable tv and advertising, she gives him a chance to write for a tv show...however, its for a reality tv show. Taking it head on he tries to take this reality cast of 7, all of which have their own Major issues, a Texting Twitter Facebook Queen who wants to make a text term dictionary, a runner up on Americas next top model who wants her own show already, a tech guy who cant do anything unless an APP tells how too, A typical Ladies man, or so who thinks, his girlfriend who puts up with his nonsense or so he thinks, another girl who is looking for the true meaning of love...everywhere, including Googling it. And then a man who is just a little bit odd, still walking around with his cassette walkman giant headphones, singing songs of the 80's, who hates all social media. All of this comes together as the writer tries to get these 7 to see things his way, when social media didnt exist.

|SIX CHARACTERS IN SEARCH OF AN AUTHOR
| Open: 05/06/16 Close: 05/15/16 - Robert Moss Theater @ 440 Studios
Six characters enter a theater...and they won't leave.
In this brand new, modern adaptation of Luigi Pirandello's classic work, the heart and soul of theater confronts its logistics and bottom lines, asking us to reconsider the timeless question: does art imitate life, or does life imitate art? Or, more importantly, is this whole art thing a sham to begin with?
With: Anthony Abdo, Carmen Borla, Meghan Ginley, Danny Gomez, Alen Kolenovic, Victoria Myrthil, Franco Pedicini, Conrad Shaw, Colleen Slattery, Bianca Soto, Natasa Warasch

About the Company: The Wise Fish Theater Collective
We are theater artists and friends who were looking for an artistic home where our voices were heard and nobody was in charge, where we could build upon our creative strengths and explore new ideas without needing permission. Mostly, we were looking for a place where we could create all together, where we could create art that comes from collaboration. One day, our founder thought, "Hey! I'm getting a vibe here. Something needs to happen!" So she asked her friends if they wanted to make magic with her. And, with the enthusiasm that has sustained us ever since, they said, “Heck Yes We Do!” And then they did. That was it.
