Gary's drug of choice is an addiction to lucid dreaming. Through careful study he has taught himself to control his dreams, whether this means living out erotic fantasies or talking philosophy with God and Satan. But Gary's mentally ill mother and other unexpected guests insist on crashing this alternate reality, as his waking and dreaming worlds intertwine.

subUrbia tells the tale of three young men who complain aimlessly about their current lives in their suburban environment. They discuss and defect race, relationships, religion, and many other taboo subjects without caring about whom they offend or why, all while drinking and smoking their days away in the parking lot of a local convenience store. As the story progresses, they are painfully reminded of their failures, both individual and collaborative, when a high school friend who has now attained success, returns for a reunion. Companionship is tested, insensitivity is frequent, and stereotypes are exploited in this darkly-funny and thought-provoking drama which first premiered at Broadway’s renowned Lincoln Center Theatre.
With depictions of alcohol and substance abuse, racial and sexual references, and plenty of profanity, please note that this production is intended for MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY. Parental discretion is advised.

Set in modern day Africa, this production spins our view of Shakespeare’s characters upside down, so that we may take a fresh look at his potent themes of justice, power, and the limits of rationalism.
Haunting the poetry with more musical imagery than any other Shakespearean play, The Tempest has found its voice with musical guest artist Atiba Kwabena-Wilson, who will perform traditional and newly composed music for the production. Also featured is the evocative set design of David T. Jones, the vivid lighting of guest designer, Paul Hudson, and the original costumes of guest artist Allison Crutchfield.

Little Shop of Horrors opened at the Orpheum Theatre on July 27, 1982 with Lee Wilkof playing the part of Seymore and Ellen Greene as Audrey, the girl of his dreams. The offbeat little musical won over the majority of the critics and enjoyed a run of 2,209 performances. In addition to the original long-running 1982 off-Broadway production and subsequent Broadway production, the musical has been performed all over the world and was also made into a 1986 film of the same name, directed by Frank Oz.
This production, under the direction of Timothy J. Amrhein, includes sets by David T. Jones, costumes by Rauil Aktanov, lights by Paul Hudson, and musical direction by Jonathan Quash.
Winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this lyrical and romantic story is an ode to great literature and a time gone by. Set in 1929, this play tells the story of a family of cigar workers whose lives are changed by the arrival of a new lector who reads Anna Karenina to the workers. The spirit of Tolstoy's novel affects each character, and with each chapter, new desires and jealousies erupt in the factory. Even the novel's deadly love triangle starts to play itself out. The play raises the dichotomy of a time when the sound of a human voice reading poetry is about to be replaced by the percussive sound of a factory full of machines.
The cast, under the direction of York College Associate Professor for Theatre Timothy J. Amrhein, features York College students: Joseph Grasso (Douglaston) as Santiago, Bency Pierre (Bellmore) as Cheché, Linda Mendivel (Jamaica) as Ofelia, Staci Ishmael (Valley Stream) as Marela, Francis Madi (Hempstead) as Conchita, Devon Phillips (Brooklyn) as Palomo, Erick Avila (Bronx) as Eliades, and Bijan Daryan (Bayside) as Juan Julian Rio.
