In Colin Quinn The New York Story, Colin bemoans the rise and fall of his hometown, the city formally known as New York, from its modest beginnings as Dutch outpost to the hipsters of modern Williamsburg to the vermin below and above ground. Quinn is once again at his satirical best, taking aim at the prejudices, paranoias, and peculiarities that make New York City the crossroads of the world. Based on Colin's best-selling book, The Coloring Book.
Six of America's most lauded playwrights come together for a celebration of one of America's greatest wordsmiths. Adapted from Tennessee Williams' short stories Desire and the Black Masseur, The Field of Blue Children, Oriflamme, Portrait of a Girl in Glass, The Resemblance Between a Violin Case and a Coffin, and Tent Worms, the plays of Desire are certain to be new classics for the 21st century. Depicting love and innocence, isolation and loss, these unforgettable tales serve as a reminder that great stories have the power to change one's life. Helmed by Michael Wilson, one of the foremost directors of Tennessee Williams, Desire is sure to be a hallmark of the theater season.
