Goodbye to Robespierre and to France...

Tonight is our second and final performance of Jacob Rice's INCORRUPTIBLE: The Tragical Historie of Maximillien Robespierre. I love this play, I love the people involved, and I love Max. I can't wait to see where this play goes into the future.

"Thank you, friend."

This Strange Beardo...

The reviews are in for Pipeline Theatre Company's production of Dave Malloy's new musical BEARDO.

"...an unforgettable theatrical experience. Malloy employs an eclectic mix of styles for a score that is both tuneful and daring resulting in stunning vocal performances throughout and the most breathtaking first act finale this side of Les Misérables." -TheaterMania

 

Come on down to Greenpoint and see what all the hubbub is about!

The Pirate La Dee Da: EXTENDED! (NY TIMES CRITICS' PICK!)

Princess La Dee Da, played with spunk to spare by Melissa Mahoney, would rather run off to sea than wed the prince her parents have chosen: Marlon (Justin Danforth), a wimp who’d never be confused with Brando... Happy or sad, pirates rock, of course, which allows Ms. Mahoney to evoke Joan Jett in one song, Bonnie Raitt in another.

ANNOUNCEMENT: HUDSON VALLEY SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL!
