Pegasus Theatre Presents NONE OF THE ABOVE, Now thru 8/30
None of the Above by Jenny Lyn Bader will be presented by Pegasus Theatre as a Churchmouse production at the Bath House Cultural Center today, August 14 - 30, 2014. None of the Above will be directed by Jared Culpepper.
None of the Above is a quirky romantic comedy about the SAT's. The play pits Jamie, a privileged teen, against Clark, her bookish tutor, in a high stakes duel of wit and study habits all in the pursuit of a perfect score.
Jenny Lyn Bader's plays include Mona Lisa Speaks (Core Ensemble), which premiered at the Berklee College of Music and was also seen at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts; In Flight (NAAA Award Winner, London); None of the Above (Lion Theatre), which former Outer Critics Circle President Marjorie Gunner called "easily the best play of the season," first produced by New Georges (Oppy Award nominee for Best Play); and Manhattan Casanova (Hudson Stage), winner of the Edith Oliver Award (O'Neill Center), also staged at Guild Hall (w/? Mercedes Ruehl). Her work has also been produced at Center Stage NY, Humana Festival of New American Plays and NY Int'l Fringe Festival ("Best of the Fringe" selection).
She co-wrote all three plays in The Jackson Heights Trilogy for Theatre 167, where she serves as Director of Artistic Development, and co-produced the six-hour epic in rotating repertory in 2013. That season she also wrote Pink, Grey, Maroon (Half Moon Theatre) and Mrs. Stern Wanders the Prussian State Library ("More Jewish Women You Should Know," Anne Frank Center) and co-authored How We Are Connected: Caribbean (Museo del Barrio, Brooklyn Museum) and Serious Music ("Bespoke Musicals," York Theatre).
She wrote both seasons of the internet drama Watercooler (MSN) and has written scripts for Warner Brothers, NBC, and HBO, where she developed a pilot with Billy Crystal. She has been a guest artist at Cornell and Barnard, a faculty member at The New School, and a frequent contributor to The New York Times. Her essays appear in Next: Young American Writers on the New Generation (Norton) and other anthologies. She co-authored He Meant, She Meant (Warner).
Jenny Lyn is a summa cum laude graduate of Harvard University, where she won the Whitehill Prize for humane letters and arts and the Carolyn Isenberg Award for outstanding achievement in the performing arts and served as fiction editor of The Harvard Advocate, where as an undergraduate she published her interview with Joseph Heller.
