Someone murdered Dr. Harvey Burdell on January 30th, 1857, in his New York City home on Bond Street. It was the most scandalous crime to occur in the city primarily because all evidence pointed to his rejected lover, a petite but conniving widower named Emma Cunningham. But the jury didn't believe a woman could commit such a violent act. Officially, the case remains unsolved and has left restless ghosts behind to battle for eternity. Journey with us into another dimension on an immersive experience into the past. Our spirits now reside in a secret, 1833 parlor in the landmarked Colonnade Row where historic documents and actual witness testimony help to bring the truth to light.
The Infinite Wrench is a mechanism that unleashes a barrage of two-minute plays for a live audience. Each play offers something different, be it funny, profound, elegant, disgusting, topical, irrelevant, terrifying, or a song; all are truthful and tackle the here-and-now, inspired by the lived experiences of the performers. With new plays every week, The Infinite Wrench is the Neo-Futurists' ongoing and ever-changing attempt to shift the conventions of live performance and speak to audiences, including those unreached or unmoved by traditional theater.
Moolah is a wild and crazy ride exploring greed, lust, and betrayal in a night of outrageous behavior that is disgracefully funny and unapologetic.
Antny is a smooth-talking bookie, narcissistic, and a homophobe. Sonny is a gay hit man who runs a hair salon in Staten Island. Both spend the evening besting each other's last words and deeds.
Naked Boys Singing! consists of six adult males doing what the title declares. Whether exposing the anxiety of a high school locker room or revealing the joys of performing nude, the uninhibited singing of these "boys" celebrates the male anatomy with wit and explicitness. And not only do they perform in the buff; many are buff themselves. Each member of the cast performs a solo tune as well as in ensemble pieces. Get excited: Every penile synonym known to man is referenced in this show.
With Say Something Bunny!, Alison S.M. Kobayashi and UnionDocs present an enthralling performance based on an amateur audio recording made over 60 years ago. The origin of this audio was a mystery. Two spools of thin steel wire were found tucked inside an obsolete sound device purchased by a collector at an estate sale. There were no labels — so no dates, no names, and no context. Through her obsessive research and active imagination along with hundreds of listens, Kobayashi decoded the rich dialogue in the recording and discovered the detailed history of an unforgettable Jewish family from New York that bursts with humor, surprise, and drama. Her one-woman show annotates, illustrates, and reconstructs the scenes of the recording while revealing the stranger-than-fiction biography of the eldest son, David, who made the wire recordings. Using video, installation, performance, and lots of archival material, Kobayashi leads the audience through a close listening, spinning "a multigenerational yarn of Rothian heights."
Note: This show is intended for mature audiences.
