A one-night only benefit concert reading of Kiss Me, Kate by Sam and Bella Spewack with music and lyrics by Cole Porter, starring Kelli O'Hara and Will Chase.
In Cole Porter's sparkling 1948 musical, the warring lovers of The Taming of the Shrew are causing trouble both onstage and off. While putting on a musical version of Shakespeare's play, exes Fred Graham and Lili Vanessi can't decide if they're enraged, enamored, or enormously confused whenever they cross paths out of character. Throw in some mistaken identity, a pair of surprisingly eloquent gangsters, and a whole lot of romantic entanglements, and what you get is Kiss Me, Kate -- a dazzling classic that earned the first-ever Tony award for Best Musical.
The PlayLabs Reading Series invites audiences to engage directly with playwrights as they develop new works for the theater. Each reading includes a post-show reception with wine and refreshments, offering a chance to discuss the work and mingle with the playwrights, actors, MCC leadership, and other audience members.
On the night of their 20th anniversary high school reunion, Greg and Steph revisit their home town after having moved to New York. Kent and Carly are suspicious of their reasons for returning and the four friends dance (sometimes literally) through a series of encounters at their school gym as they try to rekindle old friendships, struggle with their futures (together and separately) and reveal secrets to one another that might have been better left buried beneath a pile of yearbooks. Reasons to be Pretty Happy is a funny, sad, silly and sobering look at friendships and loves that have weathered and lasted for a long, long time--some even past their due dates.
Red Bull Theater's OBIE Award-winning Revelation Readings present staged readings of new and rarely performed classic plays from all eras and cultures.
Miller, Mississippi by Boo Killbebrew, Tuesday, September 13
Spanning decades, from the Civil Rights Era to the early 1990s, this new Southern Gothic tale follows a genteel Mississippi family's unraveling in the midst of societal change. The play examines a legacy of privilege that is as lurid as it is based in truth.
Laura and the Sea by katy Tarker, Monday, September 19
It's company outing day, and Laura, one of the top travel agents of her generation, is having the best/worst day of her life. So much so that she decides to end it all. Afterwards, her colleagues try to piece things together on a memorial blog, but how do you mourn someone you didn't know that well? A comedy about depression, or: a treatise on travel agents who don't travel.
Nostalgia is a Mild Form of Grief by Jerry Lieblich
Katie, a young photographer, comes home for a visit with her new boyfriend in tow. As her Mom shares baby photos, Katie gets sucked into a past she has tried hard to push away. A time-jumping journey through the wormholes of memory, family history, and time itself.
