In Broken Story we meet Jess, a driven young New York reporter who arrives at the Los Angeles home of murdered novelist Jane Hartman, hoping to uncover the true story behind a mysterious Hollywood crime. As she meets those closest to the victim, everyone becomes a suspect. Alibis are questioned, motives are discovered, and memories are surfaced in an effort to put the pieces of the puzzle together. Jess is as gifted with her journalist notebook as she is with her imagination, but the truth she unearths has dangerous consequences.

Pseudolus  | Open: 02/27/14 Close: 03/16/14
 A Comedic Investigation Of Love And Improvisation

A young Roman by the name of Calidorus has a problem.  He is in love with Phœnicium, a girl who belongs to a Madame named Ballio, but a bargain has been made to sell her to an old and ugly Macedonian soldier.  Calidorus will do anything to stop this, so it falls to Pseudolus, the clever slave, to help her master save Phœnicium from this Macedonian nightmare and win her freedom or she will lose her head.  The stakes are high, and it is clear that Pseudolus does not entirely have a clear plan.  Can Pseudolus improvise her way out of this awful mess and save the day for a happy ending?

About the Company: The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company

The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company was formed to serve as a safe space for anyone who works in the arts, and considers themselves and to be an underdog, a misfit or just misunderstood. Quite often, many of these artists will have grand ideas, yet remain too apprehensive or afraid to express them. We at The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company wish to change this. Our goal is to promote ideas and performances that otherwise might not have been done for one reason or another or that have seemed just out of reach before. From doing a classic piece of theatre to experimenting with new possibilities in performance art, nothing is too big or too small for The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company. We are dedicated to producing the show that was always in someone's imagination! For instance, if you have ever had an idea at a party late at night, but you think no one would be interested, The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company would probably be interested. Our hope is that The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company will regularly serve as a catalyst for new idea's and possibilities.

The Tennessee Williams Project

A unique twist on the one-act plays of Tennessee Williams

directed by Daniella Caggiano

January 15th-26th 2014

at The Gene Frankel Theatre, 24 Bond Street

Now in its fourth season, Bedlam Ensemble returns this January with The Tennessee Williams Project! This is a new and exciting approach to his classic one act plays, carefully directed to create interconnected story lines between the plays and 14 recurring characters all living together in one big unhappy New Orleans boarding house.

Having finished a successful run of reasons to be pretty and Walking the Dead in May and June, Bedlam Ensemble is growing and taking on one of the great iconic American playwrights, Bedlam style. We'll be including such classics as Talk To Me Like The Rain and This Property is Condemned as well as some lesser known (but just as brilliant) pieces.

This production of The Tennessee Williams Project will feature an exciting combination of Bedlam mainstays and new talent, including Cassandra Seale (ALICE, Outside Providence, reasons to be pretty), Catherine LeClair (The House of Bernarda Alba, Border Sweet Border) and Samantha Jane Williams (Marisol, ALICE, Grandpa Was A Bachelor) as well as newcomers Alexander Miskin, Liam Cunningham, Daniel Capalbo Jr., Jenny Hann, Thomas Wood, Helyn Rain Messenger, Christine Schisano, Tory Flack, Katie Henly, Giorgio Panetta and Annie-Sage Whitehurst.

The production will be directed by resident director Daniella Caggiano, whose other work with Bedlam Ensemble includes reasons to be pretty, Outside Providence, ALICE, and The Delirium of Edgar Allan Poe.

Quizzically Quimsical  | Open: 09/07/12 Close: 09/09/12
  Enter a queer imagination and embark on  an exploration of exploitation....

An original performance piece made up of poetry, prose, narrative, music, choreography, and movement with an immersive set design. This is a story about a boy on a queer journey toward self-fulfillment. The journey is shaped by the boy's first influence from a feminine force, a femme fatale: his mother. Upon identifying with a queer identity, the struggle becomes appropriating the haunting presence of his eccentric mother within the realm of exploring what queer means to each individual: both sexually and emotionally. How do we ever know when we have reached solid ground? How do we ever know when we have taken root into something concrete?
