Open: 09/18/19- Close: 09/22/19 'BELIEF' LIVES AND STORIES OF MONTANA'S SALISH WOMEN
The play draws from Cajune’s personal life experiences and the true stories of generations of the women in her family living on the Flathead Indian Reservation in Northwest Montana. The stories told in BELIEF present a rare opportunity for audiences to participate in a genuine cultural exchange, and to gain insight into the daily lives of people in a Native American community as they grapple with the human condition, as well as with the broader historical legacies and events of our time.

Open: 09/19/19- Close: 09/22/19 ...it's time... by Freemove Dance
After a sold-out 2018 run, Freemove Dance returns to 14th Street Y with …it’s time…, a piece in which five dancers are literally racing against the clock, constrained and propelled by the presence of a large digital timer, inexorably counting down towards zero. The work, choreographed by Jenn Freeman – one long, cinematic take in which performers transition through changing ambiances, styles, and energies – is a meditation on the complex human relationship to time and a metaphor for a lifetime. The evocative live drum score composed by Dani Markham (Childish Gambino) serves as the soundtrack.

FRANKENSTEIN, is a two-act sweeping, romantic musical about the human need for love and companionship.

While he enjoys unconditional love from Elizabeth, Victor grants none to his creation. 

FRANKENSTEIN plays on Tuesdaya at 7:00 p.m., at the Off-Broadway St. Luke's Theatre located at 308 West 46th Street (between 8th and 9th Avenues).

Open: 09/19/19- Close: 09/29/19 THOUGHTS & PRAYERS
"Thoughts & Prayers" is a new dance-theatre work with a palpable activist heart. Through a gripping exploration of America’s relationship with tragedy, catastrophe, and loss, this thought-provoking world premiere aims to harness the power of hope, individual action, and a call for change. Following each show, audience members and community activists are invited to discuss the next steps to create change.

Through this new dance-theatre concerto of equal parts music, movement, and theatre, we take a journey with Dana and Felix, as the couple experiences five Disasters. In a dramatic mix of original, virtuosic music, partnering, dialogue, and unique staging, six musicians (woodwinds and strings) are active participants in the performance.

TADA! Theater : 15 W 28th St, 2nd Fl
