Theater for the New City is pleased to announce Art Loisaida Foundation's multidisciplinary Arts exhibit "New Work" curated by Carolyn Ratcliffe. The exhibit features works by 26 artists composed of paintings, sculpture, photography and mixed media. These works are by artists who live and or have worked in the East Village/Lower East Side and represent a variety of styles.
Based on factual accounts and events, LURED focuses on one particular Russian hate group’s attack on a young gay man and the repercussions that follow, when his loved ones decide to take action. The play depicts how these vigilantes lure and entrap LGBTQ people, humiliating and torturing them on camera. LURED wonders if hate is inherent or taught and whether revenge is ever the answer. In this current world climate, the play could not be timelier. LURED is for mature audiences only.
Citizens of the Gray or This Dark Thing that Sleeps in Me is a theatrical production generated by the curiosity of how the relationship between man and woman has evolved throughout the years and how this relationship has become a struggle for power; a fight to the death where there can be only one winner.
NEW YORK, October 14 -- Beetlebung Road LLC, a new theater production company, will launch November 15 to December 15 with a bi-coastal production of Sam Shepard's "Fool for Love," to be presented November 15 to December 2 by Theater for the New City, 155 First Ave., Manhattan and December 6 to 15 by The Lounge Theatre, 6201 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles.
The production, directed by Kymberly Harris, will arise from a careful artistic process of immersion on many levels. The company chose to debut at Theater for the New City as part of that process: to honor and recapture the path of Shepard's "Buried Child," which was commissioned by TNC and premiered there in 1978.
For 35 years, Pulitzer Prize-winning THEATER FOR THE NEW CITY has nurtured hundreds of playwrights through its EMERGING PLAYWRIGHTS PROGRAM. In June 2006, we launched NEW CITY, NEW BLOOD, a play reading series designed to serve our audiences and writers even better.
Curated by Michael Scott-Price, TNC Literary Manager, NEW CITY, NEW BLOOD will provide a hearing for worthy plays in earlier stages of Development. Audiences will get the opportunity to provide feedback, and artists will gain valuable insight from audience response. Be sure to check http://www.theaterforthenewcity.net/ for details about upcoming readings.
