In Call My Publicist! – The Starry Education of a Broadway Press Agent, Joshua Ellis, who was one of the theater's top press agents, gives an insider's view of the glamorous and sometimes maddening world of The Great White Way from a vantage point the public rarely sees. With his very personal, first-hand stories, we hear from Yul Brynner, Carol Channing, Stephen Sondheim, Lena Horne, David Merrick, Jerry Orbach, Sir Trevor Nunn, Eartha Kitt, Eva Le Gallienne, Sandy Duncan, and numerous other theater greats with whom Ellis worked and learned the tricks of the trade. Among the shows he publicized are the original Broadway productions of Into the Woods, 42nd Street, Fences, The Elephant Man, The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, Lena Horne: The Lady and Her Music, Big River, and the award-winning revivals of The King and I (Yul Brynner), Dracula (Frank Langella), Peter Pan (Sandy Duncan) and Morning's at Seven. Call My Publicist! is about a love affair with the New York theatre, and like all romances it has its share of joys and heartbreaks.

A one-night-only benefit reading of David Rabe's Hurlyburly, reuniting director Scott Elliott and original cast members from the company's critically-acclaimed 2005 hit revival: Bobby Cannavale, Josh Hamilton, Ethan Hawke, Parker Posey and Wallace Shawn.
Hurlyburly depicts the addled lives of four Los Angeles men caught in love-hate relationships with Hollywood women, in a brutally comic reflection on the decade of decadence in the cocaine-and-sex infused Hollywood Hills in the mid-1980s.
A beacon of hope, a thunder of truth, a rainbow of love...Lord Tom is a new American musical inspired by Harriet Beecher Stowe's seminal anti-slavery narrative, Uncle Tom's Cabin.
The story follows the fortunes of two slaves Eliza and Tom journeying north and south, respectively, one in shadows, the other in shackles. When first published, Ms. Stowe's book was outsold only by the bible. And now, in this 21st Century offering, directed by John Tartaglia, it continues to herald the call for universal justice, global freedom, and unity of spirit in a colorblind world. The electrifying Phillip Boykin, Tony Award nominee and Theatre World Award winner for his portrayal of Crown in Porgy & Bess, stars as Tom and leads a cast of 17 Broadway actors with a compelling script and score of twenty-six original songs ranging in musical styles from spiritual, blues, gospel, jazz, ragtime, to contemporary ballad, anthem, lullaby, and upbeat comedic swing. Lord Tom takes the audience on a journey in which faith and freedom prevail in this 21st century trajectory of the legendary novel.
Broadway stars Patti LuPone and Bobby Cannavale head the cast of The Rose Tattoo, one of Tennessee Williams' greatest plays, directed by Doug Hughes. It is the story of Serafina, a Louisiana widow who withdraws from the world after her husband's death and expects her daughter to do the same. One day, a man resembling her late husband comes into her life and unlocks her fiery passion, wit, anger and pride. This is a play of power, humanity and soaring emotion.
Patti LuPone is a two-time Tony Award recipient (Evita, Gypsy) and regularly appears on television, in films and concert halls around the world. Bobby Cannavale is an Emmy Award-winning actor (Boardwalk Empire) whose recent Broadway shows include The Big Knife, Glengarry Glen Ross and The Motherf*cker With the Hat. Doug Hughes is a noted Broadway director who won a Tony Award for Doubt.
