El Guindi's Back of the Throat is an unflinching and Strangelovian look at the post-9/11 stripping of Americans' rights in the name of security. Khaled, an Arab-American writer, finds himself the target of a "casual" inquiry by two government agents. But as rumors swirl and grudges are exposed, the darkness behind such governmental euphemisms as "person of interest" and "extraordinary rendition" is revealed. Far from being preachy, El Guindi's play asks the simple question: when they come for you, who will be your voice? Starring Rayner Garranchan, Jim Gibbons, Tim Gore, Faiza Cherie, and Freddy Valle.
Imagine a divided Congress. Imagine lawmakers more interested in lining their own pockets than serving the national interest. Imagine an idealistic young Congressman determined to expose the corruption by introducing a bill so stuffed with pork it is sure to oink itself to death. Will his fight cost him the support of his peers, his constituents, and the woman he loves — who just happens to be the daughter of the Appropriations Committee chairman? A comic masterpiece that could have been pulled straight from today's headlines, this marvelous political satire is as relevant today as when it won the Pulitzer Prize in 1933. Colorful characters, sharp wit and glorious wisecracks reminiscent of 1930s screwball comedies add to the fun and fury.
Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where this month's paycheck barely covers last month's bills, bingo is a night on the town, and sharp-tongued single-mom Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Faced with the reality that her neighborhood is providing her with the same opportunities it always has — none — Margie concocts a plan to solve all her financial problems — and it might just be crazy enough to work. This humor-filled, Tony-nominated hit from Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire takes a look at the "haves" and the "have-nots" as it questions the American dream and how to achieve it — hard work, skill, or luck?
It Only Takes A Moment is a brand new show that uses the rich and glorious music of Broadway legend Jerry Herman to tell the kaleidoscopic story of a woman looking back at her tumultuous life. By journeying into her memories, she reconciles with her past and recaptures the exhilaration and joy she once found in her family, her music – and in herself.
If this play were a personal ad, it might read: Rich American women seeking financially strapped British men with titles. A hot topic (i.e. Downton Abbey) on both sides of the pond when this delightfully cheeky play was written in 1917, the exchange of a "milady" for a large financial sum was all the rage. Bessie Saunders, 22, pretty and the heiress to several million dollars, has come from America to stay with her sister Pearl, aka Lady Grayston. Pearl's friends include a cougar Duchess, a widowed Princess and two fellows both besotted with Bessie. But once Bessie witnesses the scandalous habits of this less-than-virtuous society, the emotional cost of social climbing is revealed in this sexy, stylish and wildly witty look at Europe's posh set and the Americans who crashed the party.
In this exquisite, dreamlike sonata of a play, Greenfield Prize and Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Nilo Cruz (Anna in the Tropics) examines the resiliency of true love and the indelible power of memories. German-born novelist Bemadette Kahn lost the love of her life during World War II when he fled Nazi Germany on the S.S. St. Louis, a ship carrying 937 Jewish refugees seeking haven in North America. Both Cuba and the U.S. turned the ship away, leaving many of the passengers to return to Europe and perish in Nazi Concentration Camps. Bemadette's past resurfaces when a young Jewish-Cuban writer contacts her to research the ship's tragic voyage, which also claimed the life of his great aunt. As their relationship deepens, they are enveloped by a transcendent romance based on her memories of her great lost love.
A timeless American classic, Gilroy's play explores one family's struggle to reconcile the disappointments of the past with hopes for the future in post-war America. Set in the Bronx in 1946, The Subject Was Roses focuses on three days in the lives of the Cleary family: Timmy, who has just returned from World War II, and his parents, Nettie and John.
