Arms And The Man  | Open: 10/08/09 Close: 11/01/09
Theater Ten Ten continues its love affair with G. B. Shaw! This season we present one of his best known pieces “Arms and The Man” which was first produced on April 21, 1894, and published in 1898 as part of Shaw's Plays Pleasant volume. The play is a delightful comedy, and an exuberant take on love and war that is filled with Shaw’s usual razor sharp wit. It was one of Shaw's first commercial successes, and when he was called onto stage after the curtain he received enthusiastic applause. However, amidst the cheers, one audience member booed. Shaw replied, in characteristic fashion "My dear fellow, I quite agree with you, but what are we two against so many?" So many indeed! The play is as popular and relevant today as when it was first produced. And in an interesting side note…Shaw sold the rights to adapt the play into a Viennese operetta, certain that it would never be produced. However, it became an international hit as The Chocolate Soldier (1908). Leah Bonvissuto, who directed our “sold out” winter 2009 production of Shaw’s “The Philanderer” returns to the helm.

The Philanderer  | Open: 02/13/09 Close: 03/15/09
The Philanderer is a comedy where the charismatic Leonard Charteris is a philosophizing philanderer who believes that only conventional people marry while advanced people form "charming friendships." But when he meets a self-described "new women" who belongs only to herself and is the property of no man, he may have met his match, if not his mate! It is one of the three plays Shaw published as Plays Unpleasant in 1898, because its purpose is to raise awareness of social problems. We welcome exciting up and coming director, Leah Bonvissuto (Lincoln Centers Directors Lab, NYC Fringe Fest) to the helm.

The Tempest  | Open: 10/17/08 Close: 11/16/08
One of the great romantic comedy plays by William Shakespeare. When at sea, Queen Alonsa of Naples and her entourage encounter a violent storm, or Tempest, they are all washed ashore on a strange island inhabited by the powerful magician Prospero who has deliberately conjured up the storm. Prospero and his daughter Miranda live on the island which is also inhabited by the sprite Ariel, and the ugly, half human Caliban. Lessons of forgiveness are learned, and lives are changed forever, with the help of some of Shakespeare's most poetic text.

Theater Ten Ten's Producing Artistic Director Judith Jarosz will direct this Steam Punk concept. Recently Jarosz has garnered acclaim for her production of Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, and her non-traditional take on William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

A Grand Night For Singing  | Open: 04/25/08 Close: 05/25/08
A Grand Night for Singing opened the 1994 Broadway season with flair and distinction, garnering wildly enthusiastic notices and a Tony nomination for Best Musical. With a cast of two men and three women, this revue explores romance and relationships using more than thirty Rogers and Hammerstein songs. Although each of R&H's musicals are represented, none of those songs' context or settings is retained: Rodgers & Hammerstein probably never imagined "Shall We Dance?" as a comic pas de deux, nor that one day a lovelorn lad might pose the musical question "How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?" That's precisely the kind of invention lavished upon this revue, with the innovative musical arrangements including a sultry Andrew Sisteresque "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Out'a My Hair," a swinging "Honeybun," and a jazzy "Kansas City" leaving no question about how terrifically up to date the remarkable songs of R&H remain. Theater Ten Ten's production is the first New York City professional revival since the original Broadway run. Under the stage direction of David Fuller and the musical direction of Michael Harren (who teamed on the much acclaimed Happy End last season) A Grand Night for Singing will be a whimsical and elegant journey through the stages of romance, from initial infatuation through enduring love.

Happy End, A Melodrama with Songs  | Open: 04/27/07 Close: 05/27/07
Written on the heels of the phenomenally successful Threepenny Opera, Happy End, which premiered in Berlin in 1929, again takes to task the disparity between the "Haves" versus the "Have-nots." In the underworld of Chicago, 1919, a Salvation Army Lieutenant, Lillian Holiday, a/k/a Hallelujah Lil, tries to reform a gangster, Bill Cracker, whose mob is led by the mysterious Lady in Grey (also known as "The Fly"). During the course of the salvation, they fall in love, a robbery gets bungled, murder is attempted, there's a surprise reuniting and a "happy" ending. Along the way we are treated to some of Weill's best songs, including "The Bilbao Song," "The Sailor's Tango," "Song of the Big Shot," "The Mandalay Song" and " Surabaya Johnny." Veteran Director David Fuller, who has helmed many hits including The Threepenny Opera at the Jean Cocteau Repertory, and Theater Ten Ten's spring 2006, six time Innovative Theater Award nominated production of The Singapore Mikado, directs this exciting piece.
A Midsummer Night's Dream  | Open: 02/09/07 Close: 03/11/07
In one of the Bard's most beloved comedies, human will attempts to thwart the power of love, logic is lost and the fairies (in this case, very swinging musical fairies!) take over. Imagination is let loose, lovers are seized by a ridiculous madness, and the fairies themselves fall victim to their own spectacular spells. Warm up with some midsummer madness in the middle of winter. Director Judith Jarosz, who brought us ethereal hilarities in Iolanthe...unplugged (2004 OOBR Award - Outstanding Production) returns for more fairy antics!
Appropriate for ages 8 and up.

Northander Abbey, A Romantic Gothis Comedy  | Open: 10/20/06 Close: 11/19/06
This adaptation of Jane Austen's novel follows the adventures of Catherine Morland, a passionate - though impressionable small town girl, who is perhaps too devoted to gothic thrillers. Young Catherine thirsts for adventure and soon finds it in the fashionable resort of Bath, England. Hosted by Mr. & Mrs. Allen, her wealthy neighbors from home, she experiences her first social whirl amidst the Thorpe and Tilney families while obsessively reading her favorite new novel, Radcliffe's The Mysteries Of Udolpho. Scenes from the novel, experienced in Catherine's vivid imagination, are inter-woven with the comparatively civil but no less eventful, adventures of Catherine's real life. The result is a swashbuckling Wizard of Oz-like journey through Catherine's two worlds, culminating in her unexpected visitation to the Tilney's mysterious estate, Northanger Abbey.
Joe Piscopo's Son  | Open: 08/24/06 Close: 08/26/06
"Joe Piscopo's Son" is set in a psychiatrist's office with Joey Piscopo in the hot seat. Over the course of this comedy packed, hour-long session, Joey performs a multitude of original characters and impressions, sings and talks about life, love and living as Joe Piscopo's son.
Giolbert & Sullivan's The Singapre Mikado  | Open: 04/28/06 Close: 05/28/06
Gilbert & Sullivan like you've never seen it before!

In this original concept production by Charles Berigan and David Fuller, you are invited to be a guest at a holiday party on December 10, 1941, given by the British consul, Sir Evelyn Estebrooke, where the entertainment is "The Mikado" performed by friends from the Singapore community. Occurring just days after the raid on Pearl Harbor, the Brits aim to thumb their collective noses at the Empire of the Rising Sun, totally unaware that the Emperor's troops are marching down the Malayan Peninsula toward this Gibraltar of the East.

Kiss and Cry  | Open: 02/10/06 Close: 03/12/06
Stacy, a champion male figure skater on his way to the Olympics, and Fiona,
a hot young movie starlet, are the nation's favorite couple--as long as
nobody finds out they're both gay. Straight from today's blind item gossip
columns, KISS AND CRY is a new romantic comedy about love, sex, fame and the
lengths people will go to in the pursuit of success.
A Month In The Country  | Open: 10/21/05 Close: 11/20/05
One of the most important plays of the nineteenth century, A Month in the Country blends the romantic and psychological melodrama of Turgenev's novels with the development of dark comedy, predating later examples of this synergy byno less than Anton Chekov and even television's Desperate Housewives. Originally censored for its political and sexual undercurrents, Theater Ten Ten brings A Month in the Country to contemporary audiences.
The Gayest Straight Man Alive  | Open: 11/06/05 Close: 11/06/05
The Gayest Straight Man Alive is a humorous but poignant response to the fact that most people immediately (for some unknown reason) assume Bisen-Hersh is gay when they meet him, even though he is actually, surprisingly straight. Topics include transvestite tendencies, masturbation, loneliness, internet dating, odd jobs and maintaining one's sanity by owning a cat & tivo. There will also be a special guest appearance by a certain celebrity pig.
An original revue of songs and sketches done in the authentic British Music Hall style, eight performers delightfully lead you through hilarious and heartwarming music of the 1850s through the 1920s.
THE APPLE CART, A Political Extravaganza  | Open: 02/11/05 Close: 03/13/05
Is a government of the people, for the people and by the people an option? Find out Shaw's answer to Lincoln's famous statement in this inimitable comic fantasy. Shaw's brilliant script transforms the workings of politics into a wonderful, whimsical treat for the senses. This rarely done humorous exploration of all that we may take for granted is a delight for the mind and frighteningly relevant to this day.
