Due to popular demand for summer action-movie/Shakespeare mash-ups, Gary Busey's One-Man Hamlet as Performed by David Carl extends its critically acclaimed run into June and July with five additional performances 10:30 p.m. Saturdays June 4 & 25; 9 p.m. Thursday, June 30 & Saturdays, July 9 & July 30. The New York Times recently called the show "deliciously deranged...a head-spinning performance!" The acclaimed production heads to the Chicago Shakespeare Theater in mid-July for the Shakespeare 400 celebrations.
As Shakespearean actor, puppeteer, singer and action-movie director, Gary Busey (played by New York actor-writer David Carl) performs each scene of Hamlet his own way, with occasional detours across Busey's IMDB page from Buddy Holly to Lethal Weapon. The heady mix of high and low-brow comedy celebrates Shakespeare's classic by using it to reflect upon the jaded, celebrity-crazed, meme-obsessed world around us.
This past fall Padraic Lillis was a guest artist at a university where a student that was charming, bright, witty, and warm, a person that no one could say a negative word about, committed suicide. It was a shock to everyone. 105 people die from suicide each day in the United States and the rate is rising. One reason is because we don't talk about it. This event inspired Padraic to create this play as an honest, intimate, slightly humorous sharing of his experiences in the hopes of opening up the conversation on the topic of suicide.
Emmy and Obie Award winner John Leguizamo (Ghetto Klown) schools his son—and the rest of us—on the buried and forgotten history of Latinos in the Americas in this outrageously funny one-man show about uncovering the truth, and recovering from the past.
Inspired by the near total absence of Latinos in his son's American history class, Leguizamo embarks on a frenzied search to find a Latin hero for his son's school project. From a mad recap of the Aztec empire to stories of unknown Latin patriots of the Revolutionary War and beyond, Leguizamo breaks down the 3,000 years between the Mayans and Ricky Ricardo into 90 irreverent and uncensored minutes in his trademark style.
Artistic Director of Berkeley Repertory Theatre, Tony Taccone, directs this incendiary new show from one the most provocatively hilarious satirists in American theater.
With a little help from strong women like poet Ruby Dee, songstress Phoebe Snow and Congresswoman Barbara Lee, Ami Brabson explores the many facets of being a phenomenal woman. This evening of music, poetry and storytelling celebrates women who have dared to speak their minds.
n this disquieting duologue for one performer, Olivier-nominated playwright James Fritz takes an unflinching look at the myths of modern love. Vevers reprises her heartbreaking, award-winning performance from the show's critically-acclaimed, sold-out world premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe 2015.
Rooted in the melting pot tradition of Jazz, the Valentine Quintet is anything but traditional. Combining the influences of the five continents the members hail from, Valentine writes and sings music that needs no language to explain its fire. She lets all members speak, the ones channeling eastern melodies, latin rhythms, straight ahead jazz and rock, and, through her classical background, she conducts them into perfect counterpoint.
After a sold out workshop presentation, this hilariously touching "one-woman musical meltdown" returns to the cell in a fully realized production, written and performed by Broadway veteran Cheryl Stern (La Cage Aux Folles, The Women). Featuring music by Emmy Award winning composer Tom Kochan, and directed by Joe Barros (Gigi, Beaches, A Taste of Things to Come), Shoes and Baggage takes us on a hilarious and heartbreaking ride of hunting, spending, and buyer's remorse. Get high on the buy!
