The Short Fall  | Open: 06/02/11 Close: 06/18/11
Toy Box Theatre Company presents The Short Fall, a rollicking satire about America's current obsession with notoriety at any cost.  Average housewife Tabby Fodder is horrified when her socially challenged family faces a fall from grace.  It's not the fall that worries her, but the lack of vertical distance they're doomed to plummet.  With wisdom gleaned from tabloids, she plots to raise her family to greater heights, so that when they fall, the world will hear the thud.

The Smell Of Popcorn  | Open: 09/09/10 Close: 09/19/10
The worlds of an aspiring actress and a career-thief who forcibly enters her apartment, collide in José Luis Ramos-Escobar’s internationally acclaimed play about human connectedness, and the multiple effects of urban crime upon daily life.

Fabiola, a 25 year old theater student, arrives home following rehearsals for a college production of “Othello”. Her sleep is interrupted by Georgie, who turns an ordinary night into an unforgettable battle of the wills that will challenge your notion of justice, and what it takes to survive in a fast-paced, highly impersonal world.

Armed only with her wit, Fabiola draws her attacker into a complex game of role-playing that blurs the boundaries between imagination and reality. As the two negotiate the terms of their unlikely encounter, they discover who they truly are, and where they stand.  Are they really that far apart?

Based on a real-life incident, The Smell of Popcorn, by one of Puerto Rico’s most renowned playwrights, is a heartfelt story that has captivated audiences in 8 countries and 21 cities worldwide. Its long-awaited NY premiere features an explosive brand-new production by one of the most cutting-edge Latino directors in the United States, starring two of New York’s most upcoming young Latino actors.

Featuring Luciana Faulhaber and Javier E. Gomez*

Decade At A Glance  | Open: 07/10/10 Close: 07/11/10
After acclaimed productions in New York and New Orleans this spring, Teatro IATI’s Performing Arts Marathon 2010 will present a return engagement of DECADE AT A GLANCE, created, directed, and choreographed by Joan Evans. Originally developed and presented by the Harold Clurman Center for New Works in Movement and Dance Theatre (MAD) at Stella Adler Studio, this blend of theatrical documentary and folk musical is inspired by the 1930’s Dustbowl photographs of Walker Evans and Dorothea Lange.

is an epic story of a few families in the Dustbowl, circa 1936, who are uprooted from their farmland by drought, dust storms and mortgage foreclosure. Making the treacherous journey out west as migrant workers, these ordinary hard working people -- some with hopes dashed, and dreams deferred or dissolved -- ultimately join the union marches. Unfolding like a series of living photographs, the story, told from the point of view of a Dustbowl survivor, is related through songs, movement, and interviews preserved from the 1930’s.

The similarities and differences between the Great Depression, and our own times, are self evident when we listen to simple people tell their stories. The gestural and expressive movement evokes images of the time. The actors sing and play the violin, flute, guitar, and ukulele. The music combines Depression-era songs, union march songs from the 1930’s, and original vocal harmonies.

The cast of 14 includes Laura Carbonell, Erika Cazeneuve, Annie Chang, Aidan Koehler, Gaja Massaro, Rafa Miguel, Tommy Nelms, Sean Powell, Lulu Rossbacher, Melanie Siegel, Margaux Susi, Elise Toscano, Cynthia Vazquez, and Sarah Wharton with lighting by Brian Tovar, costumes by Katja  Andreiev, vocal director Elise Toscano and stage manager Breanna Stroud.

Tickets are $20, available at 212-505-6757 or www.TeatroIATI.org.
