A special benefit staged reading.

A free wheeling satire of patriotic 1940's thrillers such as Notorious and Escape, The Lady in Question tells the suspenseful tale of Gertrude Garnet, the most glamorous concert pianist on the international stage. On tour in 1940 Bavaria, her colossal self-absorption is challenged when a handsome American professor engages her aid in rescuing his mother from a Nazi prison.

Apathy- The Gen X Musical  | Open: 10/21/05 Close: 11/01/05
entertaining and provocative musical of APATHY first premiered in 1995 at the Florida Playwright's Theatre in Hollywood, Florida and was the longest running production in the history of that theatre. Just this past July, a revival of the show played to sold out houses during the 6th Annual Midtown International Theatre Festival here in NYC. Now the production has proudly joined the Spotlight On Halloween Festival at the Monster for a very special CONCERT presentation featuring members of both the original 1995 and the 2005 revival casts. It's the "HAIR" of the 90's that bit you. F*CK RENT!

Can a wisecracking girl newspaper reporter and a Broadway musical theatre leading man stop the Cobra Lady in time? To be continued....
