The Gallery Players' 43rd Season opens in with John Guare's classic The House of Blue Leaves. Artie Shaugnessy is a songwriter with visions of glory. Toiling by day as a zookeeper, he suffers in seedy lounges by night, plying his wares at piano bars in Queens, New York where he lives with his wife, Bananas (who is). But like many dreams, this promise of glory evaporates amid the chaos of ordinary lives. 1971 Obie Award winner for Best American Play was called, "A brilliant play...beautifully fashioned...Wacky and sometimes sad [with]...combined hilarity, poignancy, outrageous stage aside and tragedy," by the N.Y. Daily News.
