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.
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.
Company XIV, which fuses dance, theater, circus, opera, burlesque, and decadent design to create one-of-a-kind theatrical experiences, has announced the return of their critically acclaimed, hit holiday show, Nutcracker Rouge, a reimagining of the beloved Nutcracker tale told with erotic, sensual and opulent flair.
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.
Olivier Award winner Lesli Margherita plays Cindy Lou Who in the world premiere of Matthew Lombardo's Christmas comedy in couplets. The story involves a middle-aged Cindy Lou Who, now residing in a beaten-down trailer in the snowy hills of Mount Crumpit. As she prepares to host a Christmas Eve party for her friends, she recalls from her own perspective that fateful night when she first met the Grinch and the strange turn of events her life has taken over the 40 years since then. Lombardo's hysterically funny, wildly irreverent, and heartfelt parody is a must-see for adult theatergoers this holiday season!
