6 Things To See In May 2013


Snapshots from an enigmatic fairy-tale in which Suzie, the elusive coquette, brings Samuel to his knees – from where he worships a life he only half understands. OLD-FASHIONED PROSTITUTES (A TRUE ROMANCE) is an expressionistic chamber-play that twists emotional heartache into a landscape of continual mental invention, marking the return to theater of a celebrated artist whom The New York Times has dubbed “the Godfather of the American avant-garde.”

The Public Theater in association with Ontological-Hysteric Theater.
Written, Directed, and Designed by Richard Foreman
Featuring Stephanie Hayes, Alenka Kraigher, Nicolas Norena, Rocco Sisto, David Skeist

Rosemary and Evelyn met “a hundred thousand years ago” in Central Park when their children were barely born. SOMEWHERE FUN reunites the two women thirty-five years later on Madison Avenue, one windy fall day. With their children now grown and the world changing rapidly before (what’s left of) their eyes, each finds herself face to face with the terrors, joys, and surprises of life and time. Jenny Schwartz returns to the Vineyard following her critically-acclaimed play GOD’S EAR with this wildly original story about connection — to our families, our memories, our moment in time. Schwartz reunites with director Anne Kauffman (BELLEVILLE, SLOWGIRL) following their collaboration on GOD’S EAR.

With great psychological insight and arresting theatricality, John Guare presents us with three artists, all of whom forged complicated lives in exile, having struggled and suffered amid the cultural and political turmoil of Eastern Europe in the mid-20th Century.
In 3 Kinds of Exile, the celebrated author of The House of Blue Leaves and Six Degrees of Separation draws from the experiences of three real exiles from Czechoslovakia and Poland. Guare weaves the stories of these lives into a riveting dramatic tapestry and probes the meaning of home, identity and how we carry the past with us.

Reasons To Be Happy

Three years after a contentious break-up, Steph and Greg are wondering if they can make a fresh go of it. Trouble is, she’s married to someone else and he’s just embarked on a relationship with Steph’s best friend, Carly, a single mom whose jealous ex-husband, Kent, has trouble articulating his feelings. Navigating the rocky landscape of conflicting agendas and exploding emotions isn’t going to be easy for any of them. Reasons to Be Happy is a funny, surprising, and poignant new play about the choices and sacrifices we are willing to make in the pursuit of that often elusive ideal: happiness.
Leslie Bibb (Iron Man, Talladega Nights), Jenna Fischer (NBC's "The Office"), Josh Hamilton (The Coast of Utopia, Proof on Broadway) and Fred Weller (MCC's Still Life and In a Dark Dark House) star in Reasons to Be Happy, Neil LaBute’s companion piece to his critically-acclaimed, Reasons to Be Pretty, first produced at MCC Theater in 2008 before moving to Broadway and receiving three 2009 Tony Award nominations, including Best Play.

Written and Directed by Neil LaBute
