Colt Coeur Presents World Premiere of EVERYTHING IS OURS Tonight
A smart, eccentric comedy of manners, Everything is Ours explores what happens when two people who seemingly have it all, get one more thing.
Colt Coeur, an artists' ensemble, collaboratively creates theater from the ground up. Founded in 2010, Colt Coeur has created and produced three world premieres: Seven Minutes in Heaven, together as a company with playwright Steven Levenson; Fish Eye, with playwright Lucas Kavner, and Recall by Eliza Clark.
All three of Colt Coeur's productions have been The New York Times and/or Time Out New Yorkcritic's picks, and played to sold-out houses.
Everything is Ours, written by Nikole Beckwith, directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt, and produced by Devon Berkshire. Performances begin tonight, August 31st at 8:30pm, at HERE Arts Center, 145 Sixth Avenue, (entrance on Dominick St. 1 Block South of Spring). Opening night is set for Tuesday, September 3rd at 7:00pm. The show must close Saturday, September 21st. Tickets are $18 general admission and may be purchased at www.here.org or by phoning 212.352.3101.
