NOT EVEN THE GOOD THINGS  | Open: 07/10/19 Close: 07/27/19
NOT EVEN THE GOOD THINGS, a new play by rising playwright Joseph Scott Ford will play a limited run July 10th - July 27th at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street). Kelsey Claire directs a cast of seven in this high-octane, heartfelt and delightfully bizarre production.

NOT EVEN THE GOOD THINGS is a dark comedy where a millennial getaway falls apart in the presence of the ghost of a young  girl that only one character -- despite his best efforts -- is able to see. The play deals with a group of six 20-something-year-old friends who gather in a mountain cabin to enjoy a well-deserved vacation. It’s just that they can’t seem to enjoy anything, really. What is supposed to be a fun and carefree evening evolves into a drunken circus of attempted infidelity, nonsense, and weird religion. This all takes place under the watchful gaze of a young girl who only shows herself to one person, while he steadily and hilariously loses his grip on reality in the company of his oblivious friends. The nature of shame, sexuality, loyalty, intoxication, privilege and faith are all explored in this achingly funny new play.

Tickets are $35, (which includes a $2.50 facility fee). For tickets and further information visit noteventhegoodthings.com, or call (212) 239-6200.  

Featured in the cast are Collette Astle (Hysterical Women), Victoria Janicki (Fun Home), Sea McHale (Marvin’s Room), Serena Parrish (Fun Home), Stephon Pettway (Ollie and Molly Can't Get Arrested, Mickey Roberts (debut) and Allie Trimm (“30 Rock”/13, the Musical).

 

RANDY WRITES A NOVEL  | Open: 04/18/18 Close: 06/09/18
After being married, divorced, arrested, kidnapped and thrown from a moving hovercraft, occasionally sober entertainer Randy has just written his first novel and he wants to share a staged reading of it with you. Cursed with stage fright, he begins rambling and ends up sharing a memorable – and very funny, not to mention very adult –  discourse on everything from Buddhist thought to the wisdom of McDonald’s home delivery service to whether Hemingway’s artistic genius was enough to compensates for him being a terrible human being. Randy may share the complexion of Barney the Dinosaur, but RANDY WRITES A NOVEL promises to leave you questioning the meaning of life.

“An amusing, profanity-laden existential crisis.” Time Out NY

“It’s an absolutely hilarious comedy show, and is worthy of all the praise it’s received in the years leading up to this Off-Broadway production. It’s one of the funniest events I’ve attended over the past year or so, and strongly encourage you to attend, interact, and be prepared to laugh!” – On Stage Blog

“This is cheek sore, solar plexus spasm funny. This is laughter therapy that exfoliates grumpy out of your psychological wardrobe…I loved every single second of it.” – Stage Biz

★★★★ “A daring experiment that subtly reinvents the entire notion of stand-up comedy.” – The Skinny

RACHEL CALOF  | Open: 11/15/15 Close: 11/21/15
RACHEL CALOF, a play with music, based on the life of Rachel Calof, a Jewish picture bride who was a homesteader on the Great Plains from 1894-1904, was chosen to be highlighted in the United Solo Theatre Festival. RACHEL CALOF will play four performances only: Sunday, November 15th at 7:30 pm, Monday, November 16th, Wednesday, November 18 at 9pm and Saturday, November 21 at 2pm. Based on the memoir, Rachel Calof's Story: Jewish Homesteader on the Northern Plains, the show features critically acclaimed television and stage actress Kate Fuglei in the title role. The play is directed by Ellen S. Pressman and features original music and lyrics by Leslie Steinweiss. The book was adapted for the stage by Ken LaZebnik. Tickets are $19.25 and can be purchased by visiting www.telecharge.com or by calling (212-239-6200).

RACHEL CALOF is based on a pragmatic memoir, written completely in Yiddish by Rachel Calof. It tells the story of her brave adventure across the ocean as a Jewish picture bride from Russia to North Dakota in 1894 to marry a man she had never met before. Kate Fuglei powerfully enacts Calof’s courage to come to a new land, her sense of humor, her capacity to endure brutal hardships and her quest for a home of her own. RACHEL CALOF takes the audience on a journey filled with challenges and pleasant surprises with Calof’s transformative spirit and a genuine love for life.

The MITF welcomes theatrical storytelling across a broad spectrum of genres, forms, identities, cultures, and appetites. The MITF seeks to nurture these new ideas, perspectives, and stories on its stages, with an eye set on guiding these productions toward future success and longevity.  The festival, traditionally held in summer, represents a fantastic, often paradoxical, adventurous and intriguing cross-section of the forefront of the theatre world.  The MITF proudly hosts production companies from across the country and around the globe, uniting talent in one of the biggest theatre capitals in the world.

Mr. Chatterton created the MITF, a Midtown alternative to other theatre festivals, in 2000 as a way to present the finest off-off Broadway talent in convenience, comfort, and safety. In 2008, the Festival added two 99-seat theatres and inaugurated the Commercial Division for upwardly mobile shows with commercial ambitions. The MITF’s artistic emphasis is on the script itself and therefore the Festival requests minimal production values.
