The Seeing Place Theater Presents Hamlet  | Open: 05/31/13 Close: 06/30/13
The Seeing Place Theater, known for intensely intimate ensemble work, brings you a repertory event like no other- Shakespeare's classic "Hamlet" paired with Stoppard's absurdist "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead."


Story:
Hailed as The Best Play in the English Language, HAMLET is the quintessential Revenger's Tragedy of an unlikely hero, unearthing the story behind his father's sudden death. Stoppard's classic (and hilarious) treatise on existentialism,Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead" is a worm's-eye view of the tale of Hamlet from Shakespeare's own Beavis and Butthead.

Which version is reality? Which one is a dream? With 1 united cast of 12 actors taking the same roles in both plays, come experience both sides of this classic story in the daring ensemble-driven manner that's made The Seeing Place a fixture in the NY indie theater scene.

Love Song  | Open: 11/23/12 Close: 12/09/12
The Seeing Place Theater, known for intensely intimate ensemble work, brings you John Kolvenbach’s disarming story of loneliness defeated by love. "What secret ingredient makes you think things are Possible?"
 
Meet Beane. He's depressed. His well-meaning sister, Joan, and brother-in-law, Harry, try and make time for him in their busy lives, but no one can get through. Following a burglary on Beane's apartment, Joan is baffled to find her brother blissfully happy and in love with his assailant, Molly. Suddenly Beane's got something to live for, and that's contagious enough to transform his sister's life too - right down to the nuts and bolts of her marriage. Unfortunately, Beane's got a problem that could land them all right back where they started. Funny, enchanting and wonderfully touching, John Kolvenbach’s Olivier Award-Nominated, offbeat comedy is a rhapsody to the power of love in all its forms.

Treefall  | Open: 09/12/12 Close: 09/15/12
A riveting play by Henry Murray (Three Views on the Same Object, Monkey Adored), Treefall is a gritty, heartfelt, intense play that follows the story of three teenagers living alone in a cabin during a post-apocalyptic time. The two older boys, August and Flynn, play the roles of Mommy and Daddy to the youngest, Craig, as the three struggle to maintain a normal life in a world that is anything but. However, when August and Flynn encounter Bug, a tough, independent traveler, the boys' world is turned upside-down and familial bonds are put to the test.

PREVIOUS ACCLAIM:
Treefall opened to critical acclaim in Los Angeles, where it made LA Weekly's Best Theater of 2009 List. LA Weekly cited that "Treefall is grimy, primal, heady, despondent yet inexplicably giddy-making for the sheer truth of the ache in its heart." The Los Angeles Times reported that Treefall's, "edgy, end-of-the-world vibe effectively drives home its cautionary message about the environmental legacy we're neglectfully creating for future generations."

Danny And The Deep Blue Sea  | Open: 07/27/12 Close: 08/26/12
The Seeing Place Theater, known for intensely intimate ensemble work,  extends their critically acclaimed production of John Patrick Shanley's brutal and romantic story of "Beauty and the Beast in the Bronx."

Due to overwhelming audience and critical response,  we’ve extended this production for a limited,  Off-Broadway engagement. Read what critics and audiences are saying: 
 
“Cronican and Walker get into the skin of their portraits,  to allow the universal humanity of their surface flawed characters to be perceived.”
 
“The moving power of this "Danny" stayed with me through to the next morning. The acting is terrific and The Seeing Place's dedication to excellent storytelling shines through.”
 
“The evening was, in a word, exhilarating. This is how theater ought to be!”

About the show: A man and a woman,  both lonely outcasts,  meet in a bar - in desperate need of a change. He is violent and possibly homicidal,  she is tormented and possibly suicidal; each is transformed by the love of the other. The New York Times suggested the play would be more appropriately titled,  "The Beast and the Beast". If so,  this is the story of two beasts fighting to accept beauty into their lives.  "One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life. That word is love." - Sophocles

Tickets only $15. For tickets visit www.smarttix.com or call 212-868-4444.

Danny and the Deep Blue Sea is directed by Ariel Francoeur, and stars Erin Cronican* and Brandon Walker*. (*Member, Actors' Equity Association)

About the Company: The Seeing Place Theater

The Seeing Place Theater is an actor-driven ensemble known for its intense and intimate work. We are forcefully committed to:

THE ACTOR'S PROCESS: Through robust table work and improvisation, we focus on honoring the actor's artistry in creating a character and building a story, which extends from rehearsal into performance.

ORGANIC STORYTELLING:Unlike other companies, we do not set staging (blocking) or cement our choices in advance. What audiences see is a group of actors "in the moment" - working off one another to tell a fresh story that is never the same night to night.

The Lover  | Open: 07/27/12 Close: 08/12/12
“Some people claim that marriage interferes with romance. There's no doubt about it. Anytime you have a romance, your wife is bound to interfere.” - Groucho Marx

 

The Seeing Place Theater, known for intensely intimate ensemble work, brings you Harold Pinter’s "bizarre theatrical evening" of lust, cunning, and costumes.  

How far will you go to spice up your marriage? Do you need to go outside of it to get the fulfillment you need? And what happens when you cross the line? In Pinter's quintessential dark and stormy bedroom farce, he examines a husband, a wife, her lover, and the coping mechanisms people use to survive the seven year itch.  

Performances run July 27 - August 12, 2012 Wednesday-Saturday at 7:00pm and Saturday & Sunday @ 2:00pm.

Be sure to see this show's companion piece, Danny and the Deep Blue Sea, performed by the same actors and same creative team in true ensemble repertory. Both shows are $12 each, or see the complete event for only $20 (save $4)  For tickets visit www.smarttix.com or call 212-868-4444.

 

The Lover is directed by Ariel Francoeur, and stars Erin Cronican, Brandon Walker, and Ned Baker Lynch.

Miss Hope's  | Open: 05/23/12 Close: 06/24/12
Paralyzed by the promise of the American Dream, "Miss Hope's" explores the funny and sometimes tragic lives of a few who eat and work at Miss Hope's, a small-town diner in rural America. Covering two decades of American politics, their hope for the future is a march from innocence, through temptation, to virtue or vice reminding us that with broken promises come broken dreams.
