With pissed-off Pikachus, steam punk armies, stood-up Sailor Moons and roller-blading monsters on the prowl, it's easy to get lost in the Inferno-esque anime convention where the fans, the otakus, and the geeks prowl. But to score a rare signature from their comic book idol, teenage outcasts Dayna and Honey will take on obsessive magic players, Jedis and elfs, cosplayers and convention guards - through all nine flights of Ohio's Dante's Fire-Con - to get a chance to shake hands with their pop-culture hero.

The Movement Theater Company presents
By Harrison David Rivers
Conceived and Directed by David Mendizabal

When a young gay man is found dead in his New York apartment, his best friends are left wondering why. Part meditation and part celebration, LOOK UPON OUR LOWLINESS is a touching, unexpectedly funny story of seven men who, in the wake of a tragic loss, choose to embrace life. In a world inundated by technology and constant communication, the play examines the interconnectedness of love, loss, faith, and healing.

Red Bull Theater presents
Directed by Joseph Hardy
American Premiere of a new adaptation by Mike Poulton
With Daniel Davis, Laila Robins, Derek Smith

On an isolated island, military captain, Edgar, and his ex-actress wife, Alice, approach the 25th anniversary of an intense marriage.  When a jolt from the past arrives in the shape of Alice's cousin Gustav, a deadly battle of wills begins.  And Edgar is prepared to fight to his very last breath…  Strindberg's masterful vivisection of a diabolic union blazed the trail for modern marriage portraits like "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?".  Red Bull Theater brings this modern masterpiece to life in a savagely comic and bracingly intimate production.

Written by Tanya Barfield

Directed by  Leigh Silverman
With Kerry Butler and Eisa Davis

When Annie and Peter decide to adopt, they come to set their sights on a child from Africa. But when the reality of this choice sinks in, it opens a well of uncertainty that speaks to their very identity as White Americans. Politically-charged and tack-sharp, The Call is a startling portrait of cultural divide, casting global issues into the heart of an American home.

thru  May 19th

Peter Jay Sharp Theater

The Public Theater presents
Concept and Lyrics: David Byrne
Music: David Byrne and Fatboy Slim
Additional music: Tom Gandey, J Pardo
Choreographed by Annie-B Parson
Directed by Alex Timbers

Within a pulsating dance club atmosphere, David Byrne and Fatboy Slim deconstruct the astonishing journey of Filipina First Lady Imelda Marcos retracing her meteoric rise to power and subsequent descent into infamy and disgrace at the end of the People Power Revolution. HERE LIES LOVE is neither a period piece nor a biography, neither a play nor a traditional musical but an immersive theatrical event combining songs influenced by four decades of dance music, adrenaline-fueled choreography, and a remarkable 360-degree scenic and video environment to go beyond Imelda’s near-mythic obsession with shoes and explore the tragic consequences of the abuse of power.

The Public Theater
