Work of Eco-Theater JUPITER to Play LaMaMa in FebruaryWork of Eco-Theater JUPITER to Play LaMaMa in February
by BWW News Desk - Jan 7, 2016

'JUPITER (a play about power)' by Superhero Clubhouse and Kaimera Productions is an argument of soaring irony and logic between humanity and a dude with one-time magic who has made all fossil fuels disappear permanently from the Earth. That's not such an unbelievable premise, when you think about it, because in terms of our global history, we are on the brink of an energy systems overhaul. Some 'man at the switch' could at any time begin shutting our industrial civilization down. Oh, we'll be indignant then. Now imagine a philosophical debate between this overlord and a woman who represents all of humankind. That is the one-act 'dream play' that will be offered to us by playwright Jeremy Pickard, director Simon Adinia Hanukai and musician/energy policy specialist Jonathan Camuzeaux, presented by La Mama from February 11-28, 2016.

BWW Review: THE DUMBWAITER Still Powerful Theatre after Fifty Eight YearsBWW Review: THE DUMBWAITER Still Powerful Theatre after Fifty Eight Years
by Frank Benge - Nov 23, 2015

THE DUMBWAITER, by Harold Pinter, is a one act play written in 1957. Almost 60 years on, it still has a lot to say about our need to assert our individuality while seeking meaning. It still manages to make a profound statement about the human condition. The title refers not only to the food lift that delivers orders to the two hit-men, Ben (Ken Webster) and Gus (Jason Phelps), but also refers to Gus, who doesn't know that he is waiting to be the victim, and possibly even to Ben, whose blind obedience to higher authority eventually causes him to be confronted with having to eliminate his partner.
