Blue Box Productions Announces Fall Presentatins Of STICKY At Bowery Poetry Club

Blue Box Productions is pleased to announce the line up for its upcoming Fall presentation of Sticky at Bowery Poetry Club. Now in it's 7th year in New York City, Sticky once again brings together a formidable collection of playwrights, directors and performers to prove that anything that can happen can happen in a bar. Coming off an 2008/09 season that saw record attendance as well as the publication of 12 Sticky plays in the New York Theater Review, we come back in October and November with new small batch, locally grown theater for New Yorkers with downtown appetites. Just as restaraunteurs now shop at the green market for the most direct link to fresh food and often base their menus on what the community has to offer, Sticky goes straight to the source, showcasing the work of over 20 playwrights, 20 directors and 70 actors, as well as musical acts. Our menu is not based on mission, issues, ideology, but rather on the ingredients New York is chock full of: the wonderful artists who are all to ready to let loose given the chance.

This Sticky season features stories about facebook isolation and the planned flooding of NYC, a dad who finds out a little too much about his daughter's college job, a man meeting Santa 20 years later, the future of black conservatism and more. The only binding theme is that these plays take place in a bar, where anything can happen. As always there is no stage for these plays, they happen all around you, making you part of the set, and part of the experience. As theaters on every level embrace the immersive style, whether on boats, in cutting edge downtown spaces, or in Broadway Halloween spectaculars, we have seen a growing acceptance of a kind of theater that was once reserved for holiday based "light" theater, Sticky is proud to remain in the forefront of this theatrical movement.

The Sticky actors this go round have been seen recently in Confidence Man, Greendale GP, The Savannah Disputation, Cato, Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind, and dozens of other shows around New York. Sticky brings them together in a playground of new work, sparingly rehearsed, and performed only once. From the established to the brand new, the actors of Sticky represent a broad cross-section of our cities theatrical talent.

Sticky returns October 9th and 16th and November 13th and 20th all at 7pm, for its seventh season in New York. Bowery Poetry Club, 308 Bowery, $8 at the door.
