A KIND SHOT  | Open: 01/06/18 Close: 02/25/18
Back by popular demand, A KIND SHOT, the critically acclaimed one-woman show by former basketball star and model Terri Mateer hits the boards at the TBG Studio Theatre (312 West 36th Street), starting January 6,  through February 25, 2018.

In A KIND SHOT, 6’1” blonde spitfire Terri Mateer tells her life story of becoming a pro basketball player in France. Raised by a single, hippie mom, an African American surrogate father steps in and teaches Terri how to play the game. Clearing six feet in sixth grade, she’s a natural, but dreams of becoming an architect. Terri's unbelievable journey includes playing pro ball, modeling, stripping, designing Michael Jordan’s headboard, and taking lots of shots at life.  

Tickets are $20 in advance at www.akindshot.com, and $25 at the door. Shows runs 75 minutes. There is adult language and a talkback following each performance.

Empanada For A Dream  | Open: 04/21/12 Close: 04/29/12
Downtown on Allen Street -- Everybody’s blasting – Bacchata. Merengue. Salsa.  Everybody’s cooking – Plantains. Paella. Empanadas.  Boys play Baseball, Football, Skully, Johnny on the Pony.  And this girl – the most beautiful girl – watches from a window. EMPANADA FOR A DREAM is a poignant and entertaining portrait of family and neighborhood – set against the secret that destroys it all.  It’s a story about growing up.  It’s a story about getting out. And coming back -- to one boy’s Lower East Side.

Founded in 2012, Ballybeg is a new non-profit theatre company committed to working in spaces where the barriers between the show and the audience can be eliminated. By presenting new plays (and American classics) in intimate venues, it’s Ballybeg’s goal to make the deepest possible connection with its audience.

Regarding this project, Producer John Adams says: “This extraordinary piece is in development – in fact, it’s going on to a major Latino Theatre Festival in Chicago this summer. It was Juan who graciously offered to provide us with this, our first show. Ballybeg is proud to be part of the journey of the play and to share it with our audience.”

Give In To Sin: 7 Deadly Ways To Play  | Open: 07/15/11 Close: 07/31/11
Experience the sins like you've never before!

It may be a sin, but in make-believe, everything’s fair game.

Playing with Reality creates three adrenaline-pumping new short plays during each performance. Three audience members/volunteers get to be the protagonist in an interactive, spontaneous short story, guided by Playing with Reality’s trained improv members.

Choose your favorite deadly sin and play it to the hilt. Maybe you'll satisfy your darker side. Maybe you’ll just add fuel to the fire. Either way, lust, envy and greed will never be the same.

Participation is voluntary, so audience members may choose to play the voyeur and watch the lure of the vices.

Cast: Eugene Fertelmeyster, Matthew Jenifer, Brian Kendel, Jenn Kent, Carolyn McCandlish, Amanda Miller, Alyssa Northrop, Sarah-Doe Osborne, Julio Peña, and Mateo Prendergast

Stage Manager: Melissa Zygmant
