Nucleo Eclettico presents a Denis Dedirot prodcution of two short new plays by Jim Pangrazio. Directed by Jason Hale



A  young, teenaged girl (Tylah) who has everything she could ever ask for in life, struggles to find true love. She has a close friend (Alonzo) who caters to her every need, only to be pushed away by her. Her best friend (Rebecca) tries to warn her about men who may look good but who can also be deceiving. While on her journey to love, she struggles with family issues with her brother (Junior) and with her parents (Rita and James). The only soul survivor of the family is her knife carrying, beer drinking, Christian, grandmother (Grandma Viola). As her family tries to keep peace within one, She (Tylah) becomes attracted to one of her co-workers(Jamal). Will she ignore her best  friend’s advice and go with her co- worker, or will she continue to push away her friend and let love pass her by????

Almost, Maine  | Open: 09/01/11 Close: 09/15/11
A romantic comedy set in the 1950s. All is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine.  As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken.  But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend-almost-in this delightful mid-night’s dream.

Some Girl(s)  | Open: 03/19/11 Close: 03/29/11
The Michael Chekhov Theatre Company's  sharp new production of Neil LaBute’s unsparing study of sexual politics.

Your career as a writer is blossoming, your beautiful young fiancée is waiting to get married and rush off to Cancún by your side, so what is your natural reaction? Well, if you're a man, it's probably to get nervous and start calling up old girlfriends. And so begins a single man's odyssey through four hotel rooms as he flies across the country in search of the perfect woman (that he's already broken up with).

Cast: Mark Forlenza, Liz DeBetta, Joya Italiano, Krysten Kimmett, and Eileen Marlowe
