A SIMPLE ART  | Open: 06/02/17 Close: 06/11/17
Based on Raymond Chandler’s 1944 essay, our new play A SIMPLE ART is a live true-crime documentary looking at the 2014 murder of a California priest whom one of the Neo-Futurists involved personally knew. By syncing up interviews taken from Humboldt County with storytelling, dance, onstage analog devices, and repetitive tasks, three Neo-Futurists (Nessa Norich, Kyra Sims, & Alex Vlahov) scrutinize the human need for narrative. This new play “investigates” the region’s history, the marijuana industry, the Catholic Church, police procedure, and the crime itself, all in an attempt to explore why (and how) we construct stories from the chaos of reality. If you are the private detective of your own life, are you following the clues or simply building a narrative?

ON THE RAILS  | Open: 09/13/16 Close: 11/20/16
ALGONQUIN THEATER PRODUCTIONS and JASON HEWITT proudly present the world premiere of On the Rails, a new musical with book by Tony Sportiello (Second Chance, National Pastime), music and lyrics by Al Tapper (Sessions, An Evening at the Carlyle), arrangements and musical direction by David Wolfson, and directed by Misti B. Wills (In Search of Euphoria). The Off-Broadway engagement will take place at the Roy Arias 777 Theatre (777 8th Avenue, New York, NY 10036). Performances begin Tuesday, September  13th and continue through Sunday, November 20th, 2016. Opening Night is Sunday, September 18th at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $60.00 ($40 Students and Seniors) and can be purchased online at www.ontherailsshow.com or by calling 212-352-3101.


Starring Lindsay Nicole Chambers (Lysistrata Jones, Legally Blonde, Hairspray), Mel Johnson Jr. (Jekyll & Hyde, Hot Feet, The Lion King, Big Deal, The Rink, Eubie!, On the Twentieth Century), and James Ludwig (Spamalot, Little Shop of Horrors).


With musical finesse and artistry, Chambers and Ludwig each take on three vastly different personalities. Guided by a melodic train conductor portrayed by Johnson Jr. the tales of three troubled couples unfold--the couple questioning their fidelity, or on the verge of career suicide, or facing their own mortality--all on board a mystical, and timeless locomotive. Discover life and death, love and heartbreak, ambition and despair, On the Rails, as we journey forward, each to our own surprising and inevitable destination.
