Credo  | Open: 12/06/05 Close: 12/11/05
a work by Craig Lucas
Mrs. Weinberg's Profession is an adaptation by Aaron Rosenblatt of one of George Bernard Shaw's earliest plays – Mrs. Warren's Profession. When Shaw wrote the play more than 100 years ago during the reign of Queen Victoria, he had to tiptoe around two of the main topics, incest and prostitution. Rosenblatt's adaptation takes place in New York City in the roaring twenties. The plays' plot, theme and characterization parallel the renowned playwright's structure, but include thoroughly American slang and references.
The Devil Winks (To Be or Not to Be on Avenue B)  | Open: 06/01/05 Close: 06/19/05
Whether or not you are a native New Yorker, you can't help but be fascinated with the unique history of the East Village. Now a trendy neighborhood, the area formerly known as Alphabet City was once a den of drug denizens and a hipster hotspot for restless artists trying to express themselves in the turbulent decades leading up to the 21st century.

Actor-writer David Sirk brings his own retrospective to life as he relives his youth in the neighborhood in his solo show "The Devil Winks," presenting a travelogue back in time for those who lived it and those who wish they did.

The Taming of the Shrew  | Open: 04/14/05 Close: 04/24/05
Shakespeare's comic battle of the sexes
Beyond Venus  | Open: 04/06/05 Close: 04/09/05
BEYOND VENUS is an evening of works that encompasses the varying degree's by which women define themselves or are bound to a specific stereotype. The evening is comprised of four separate pieces that illuminate these ideas.

The first "Bound" follows the internal journey of a young woman striving to meet the pop culture estimate of the perfect body.

The next, "Ophelia Descends" details a young woman's journey on the road to understanding where she begins and her relationship ends.

"Purge Partners" is a dialogue between two strangers on the steps of an abortion clinic strained to deal with the societal and personal ramifications of the act itself. The final piece,

"Not an Ingénue" highlights a young woman's persona pilgrimage toward dealing with the definitions that the theatre and the world have placed upon her and cause her to wonder, are there any ingénues left?

Oblivious To Everyone  | Open: 03/29/05 Close: 04/02/05
If you are a self proclaimed "smut-a-holic", enjoying talk shows, sleazy dating shows, trashy magazines, and whatever else the media throws your way, or if you simply enjoy laughing out loud, than Oblivious To Everyone is the play for you.

Ms. Johnson plays the role of Carrie, a young woman seeking psychiatric evaluation after repeated complaints from friends and family of her alleged multiple 'personalities'. The show takes place in a doctor's office as Carrie rattles off her many media related experiences over the years, denying that these things have had any effect on her. Carrie swears that being an avid TV watcher is hardly grounds for a counseling session. Yet, as the play unfolds, the audience will see just how oblivious Carrie really is to everyone. This is a dynamite serio-comedy in one act and a definite must see!
