Tesla  | Open: 05/23/13 Close: 06/08/13
Tesla is a theatrical journey into Nikola Tesla’s unlimited imagination in the final years of his life. Living alone and in relative obscurity in a hotel bedroom, he desperately develops his particle beam to save his beloved Yugoslavia from the Nazi Luftwaffe. He draws on the intellectual strength of his youth when he was the most celebrated and controversial inventor in America. Even back in the Roaring Nineties, when New York was aglow with electrical invention and his beloved Katherine was alive, could he have had the power to fight man’s combative instinct? Is the only difference between war and the nineteenth century robber barons that people suffer and die more quickly?


Tesla Featuring: James Lee Taylor as young Nikola Tesla

Jack Dimich as old Nikola Tesla

Tom Cappadona as Thomas Edison

Luka Mijatovic as Luka and King Peter

Anthony Guerino as Marconi and Mark Twain

Alessandro Colla as Westinghouse

Adam Pagdon as JP Morgan

Quest For The West: Adventures On The Oregon Trail!  | Open: 08/11/12 Close: 08/26/12
No.11 Production in association with FringeNYC presents Quest for the West: Adventures on the Oregon Trail!, an interactive musical comedy.

1848. Oregon fever has swept the nation. Jebediah and his wagon party embark on a 2,000-mile journey West.  On the trail, the party encounters a river (how will they cross it? You decide…it’s interactive!), animals to hunt (“get out your balls, it’s time to go hunting”), prickly pear cacti (help them jump over these dangerous succulents!) and the ever present danger of dwindling water rations…and dysentery!  Along their quest, the pioneers’ journey is filled with more than dirt trails.  Romance develops; deep secrets & betrayals are revealed; and Jebediah’s darkness gets…darker. 

This musical comedy is a scored interactive game for the audience which works together as a team to determine the events that occur.  Play well and you may just make it onto the Top 10 Score Board!  2,000 miles.  90 minutes. 11 songs.  8 games.  6 characters.

From Writer/Director Ryan Emmons:  “We’re used to games and apps at our fingertips on a daily basis - this musical leans into those sensibilities, but the laughter and interaction that come along with live theatre could never be achieved on a computer screen. Manifest Destiny and the courage of the pioneers remind us of the outrageous trek men and women took west, our ability to make our own opportunities and the notion that it is in working (and playing) together that extraordinary things can be achieved.”

To Kill A Kelpie  | Open: 04/13/12 Close: 04/15/12

'To Kill A Kelpie' is about the unfolding and sharing of a secret between two adult brothers that has never been spoken of before. A „Kelpie‟ is widely known as a devious creature lurking in the depths of highland lochs. When two grown brothers reunite, following the death of their uncle, they realize that his gruesome tales of a child-devouring monster were simply a climate of fear created to ensure their silence and cooperation during years of sexual abuse. In this unconventional drama, we meet two men talking to the children they were. Still unsure whether there might be any truth in the Kelpie stories, they face one another like a mirror to open painful boxes of sexual confusion, self doubt, and shame, while endeavoring honestly to end the silence and open their minds enough to consider what it would take to kill a Kelpie.
Macbeth, A Musical  | Open: 01/19/11 Close: 01/23/11
Pipe Dream Theatre presents Macbeth, an original musical retelling of Shakespeare's classic play set in a Retro-Future/Steampunk world. This timeless story of one man's struggle between duty and desire in a war-torn country is an exciting and passionate theatrical experience. Through thrilling fight and dance sequences, modern dialogue and captivating music, Macbeth captures the essence of Shakespeare's play, presenting it in a relevant, mesmerizing and accessible format.

"Soledad Barrio . . . danced as if possessed by the spirit of a Gypsy encampment, or even the shivering horrors of a Goya painting . . . she breathed the essence of flamenco." -- John Rockwell, New York Times

"Noche Flamenca achieved the miraculous. Within four or five minutes, they took me into another world -- their world . . . it is the depths of the soul and its unfathomable mystery to which these fine artists aspire. They confront nothing less than the mystery of life." -- John Heilpern, The New York Observer

After touring the globe for the last 11 years, the acclaimed eight-member Spanish troupe Noche Flamenca burns up the summer stage in its beloved New York, as the company brings its pure, authentic brand of flamenco to the intimate setting of Theater 80.

The company, known for its transcendent and deeply emotional performances, also includes two of Spain's most renowned dancers, Alejandro Granados and Juan Ogalla, performing in communion, live with five of Spain's most spell-binding musicians and singers.

Founded in Spain in 1993 by Barrio, winner of the highest international awards for flamenco, and her husband and artistic director Martín Santangelo, Noche Flamenca has developed into one of Spain's most successful and respected flamenco companies.
