Naked Holidays  | Open: 12/22/12 Close: 12/30/12
 EndTimes Productions invites you to the 6th Annual NAKED HOLIDAYS. Performances of this flesh-filled evening of non-traditional holiday mischief and merriment run November 30 - December 30 at the Times Square Arts Center (300 West 43rd Street, 4th fl., at 8th Avenue).

NAKED HOLIDAYS is a darkly comic Yuletide bacchanalia of theater and burlesque. This boisterous holiday extravaganza puts a bawdy spin on some of our best-loved winter traditions. Highlights include:
• Weredeer: A man who's been bitten by a Weredeer is doomed to become one on Christmas Eve.
• How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love the Holidays: The War on Christmas is here and the FOX newsroom is the final holdout against the anti-Christmas forces.
• The Worst Jews In the World: A Christmas-loving Jewish couple is convinced that they're the world's worst Jews.  But history proves them wrong.
• Dad Came Out This Christmas: A father makes the Yuletides gay.
• The Big Toy Chest: Six sexy, wayward elves are imprisoned by a sadistic warden. What will they do to break out of The Big Toy Chest?
• The Naked People Play: the traditional full-monty Naked Holidays closer.

Life Among The Natives  | Open: 09/09/07 Close: 09/09/07
The Milk Can Theatre Company presents Scene Herd Uddered a monthly playreading series.
An uproarious new play by ML Kinney, Life Among The Natives is one-woman's journey out of the closet and into the jungle. Jewel Native, mild mannered accountant and lesbian, is not out to her family. Her girlfriend Amanda has talked her into having a family dinner so that Jewel can come out and announce their wedding plans. What follows is a farcical adventure through the life of the Natives. Directed by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, with performances by Maria Teresa Creasey, Adam Law, Amir Levi, Geoffrey Parrish, Kristen Rozanski, Miranda Shields, Adia Tucker, and Amy Windle. Further information is available to view at www.milkcantheatre.org.

Life Among The Natives will be performed as part of The Milk Can Theatre Company's monthly reading series Scene Herd Uddered. To call it a reading series is a misnomer. Scene Herd Uddered isn't actors sitting in chairs simply reading a script. Instead, each presentation is the culmination of seven weeks of intense developmental work. We give a team — usually composed of a playwright, a director and a group of actors — a budget, rented space in which to show their work, a stage manager, publicity, and a support staff of dramaturgs. This is a rare opportunity for emerging artists to spend seven weeks developing a project together, without the intense pressures and constraints usually associated with the production of a new play. We gladly push teams to take huge creative risks and stretch the boundaries, rather than driving towards a neat, traditional end product. Each month we invite the public to view these projects-in-progress and share their views on them. We hope you will join us on Sunday, September 9th at 7 pm at The Star Theatre, Times Square Arts Center, 300 West 43rd Street, 4th Floor. Tickets are $10. There will be a discussion with the writer, director, and cast after the performance.
