La Femme Est Morte

or Why I Should Not F%!# My Son

Shalimar Productions

Writer: Shoshona Currier
with additional text by
Georges Bataille and Seneca

Director: Shoshona Currier

Choreographer: Isis Masoudara Reichel

What happens during wartime to
those who are left behind?

Sexual tension is high, servants lie wickedly to protect their masters, pills are popped, and there is a boxing match to the death. This highly physical theater piece maintains its intensity even when the company dances together to Pat Benatar songs or digresses into discussions of celebrity pop culture. American to the core, this play looks closely at war, violence, and the boredom we feel when confronted with ourselves.

August 12 (2:45), 16 (7:00), 18 (3:00), 25 (7:00), and 26 (5:00)
at the Henry Street Experimental Theatre (466 Grand St. @ Pitt St.)

or at the box office 15 min. before the show.

Bag Fulla Money

A new comic Farce by
Scott Brooks


Directed by
Sam Viverito

BAG FULLA MONEY is a new comic caper about everyone's fantasy, finding free money, and lots of it!
A bag of stolen cash is left shamelessly unattended in the kitchen of a fancy four star hotel.
Then, it's SNATCH meets NOISES OFF. A fast and furious
 four-letter-word farce that flies with machine gun dialogue that crackles with wit, grit and hysterics. Tells the tale of
the chef, his girl and six others who try to outwit, out-con
and outlast each other and make off with a million bucks.

The Clurman Theatre on Theatre Row

Camille - BroadwayUSA!
La Dame Aux Camelias

Book by Julia Gregory

 Additional Scenes by

 Renato R. Biribin Jr.
Lyrics by Julia Gregory
Music by Julia Gregory

New York Music Theater Festival

This is the story of Camille, a French courtesan who learns the true meaning of love in her last months of life. Set in Paris in 1875, this piece translates beautifully into our genre of Musical Theatre. At its core it is a story of love and forgiveness, a message as powerful today as it was for audiences of its time. With the sweep of Les Miz and the passion of Romeo and Juliet, the star-crossed lovers (Camille and Armand) come together only to be split apart by the conventions of society.
