8:00 PM

This American Wife - Double taps, lip syncs, GIFs: To be online is, in many ways, to be a fan. But "fan," derived from "fanaticus" meaning "insanely but divinely inspired," does not begin to describe the obsessive compulsions of the most devoted followers of The Real Housewives. This American Wife is the newest experiment in live internet theater from Fake Friends (Circle Jerk). Chasing their not-so-guilty pleasure, Jakeem, Patrick, and Michael fall down a rabbit hole into a hauntingly glamorous mansion, where they binge on fake lemons, alligator purses, and crocodile tears. Much more than a tribute to the television franchise, this absurd fantasia on national memes blends improvisation and multi-camera cinematography in a site-specific (and self-specific) live stream. click here

Stars in the House - PUNKY BREWSTER with Soleil Moon Frye and Cherie Johnson in support of You Gotta Believe, whose goal is to find youth permanent families, so that they have the support system they need to live safely and to their highest potential.

Capricorn 29 - On the eve of her 29th birthday, a Very Online millennial stumbles upon a curious conspiracy theory: the powers-that-be have initiated a new capitalist plot to eliminate unsuccessful 30 year olds. What sounds at first like the byproduct of someone watching too many dystopian films from the 1970s quickly proves harder to dismiss. And as the countdown to 30 begins, surviving and saving a generation may be the opportunity one young-ish adult needs to finally fulfill her rapidly fading potential. Unfolding in the form of a hallucinatory YouTube wormhole, CAPRICORN 29 is a micro movie musical that wrestles with the tyranny of age-based milestones. click here

Email Pro, ft. Special Guest SUSIE ESSMAN! - Email Pro is a recurring 60-minute livestream based on Ivan Anderson's long-running email performance art. The show consists of writing and sending emails to strangers, whose email addresses are provided by members of the chat audience. The emails themselves consist of parodies of self-help, absurd distortions of what it's like to be a person, and frantic attempts to tell the truth and be helpful. Writing and sending them serves as a vehicle for improvised standup comedy and a very glitchy masterclass in using email. click here

2:00 PM

ITZIK AND THE GOLDEN PEACOCK - The Congress for Jewish Culture will host ITZIK AND THE GOLDEN PEACOCK, a 120th birthday celebration for Yiddish writer Itzik Manger. This very special virtual event, presented in conjunction with the California Institute for Yiddish Culture & Language, Ot Azoy London, the League for Yiddish, and Yung-Yidish of Tel-Aviv, will feature an international ensemble of Yiddish luminaries with readings, music and discussion, revealing why Itzik Manger has such an inspirational, enduring legacy. Scheduled participants in ITZIK AND THE GOLDEN PEACOCK will include Los Angeles-based Mike Burstyn (Star of Broadway's BARNUM, THE ROTHSCHILDS); Shura Lipovsky ('Adrienne Cooper Dreaming in Yiddish' Award-winning singer, Amsterdam); Dr. Helen Beer (Itzik Manger biographer, London); Ruth Levin (Leading Israeli interpreter of the Yiddish song, Tel Aviv); Mendy Cahan (SON OF SAUL, A FILM UNFINISHED; Tel Aviv); Binyumen Schaechter (Conductor of the Jewish People's Philharmonic Chorus; Composer of NAKED BOYS SINGING! & THAT'S LIFE; New York); Gitl Schaechter-Viswanath (Author & poet, SUDDEN RAIN: YIDDISH POEMS; Bergen County); Sharon Bernstein (Cantor, Sha'ar Zahav; Palo Alto); Shane Baker (the best-loved Episcopalian on the Yiddish stage today, New York); and Miri Koral (Founding Director of the California Institute for Yiddish Culture & Language, Los Angeles). Itzik Manger (1901 - 1969), legendary poet, dramatist, novelist, and enfant terrible of Yiddish literature, is perhaps best known for his MEGILE-LIDER ("Megillah Cycle," 1936) in which he recast the traditional Purim play as dramatic lyrics, and for writing the lyrics to "Oyfn Veg Shteyt a Boym" (On the Road Stands a Tree), one of the most beloved Yiddish songs of all time. His works continue to be performed, analyzed and translated all over the globe. Founded in 1948, the Congress for Jewish Culture (Executive Director, Shane Baker) is a secular organization based in New York City dedicated to its longstanding commitment to enriching Yiddish culture worldwide. ITZIK AND THE GOLDEN PEACOCK will be available for viewing live via Zoom and Facebook Live: facebook.com/Kultur.kongres. For more information, visit www.congressforjewishculture.org. click here

Together Apart - TOGETHER APART, a collection of new short musicals written, composed, directed-by and starring Brown University alumni, will raise money for The Actors Fund. The musical evolved out of a true Zoom moment: A Brown musical theater reunion attended by graduates from the early 80s through the late 90s. Lisa Loeb, '90 Graduate and Grammy Award Winner, was energized by the digital reconnection, and inspired to write a musical about the experience. She asked the group if they wanted to collaborate, and the creative process began. Loeb said "As I sat in the Zoom reunion, listening to everyone talk about their current lives, connecting with friends, and reflecting on all of our vivid musical theater memories from Brown, I realized that we shouldn't just talk about what happened in the past, but we should write a Zoom musical about what's going on, and it should happen all in the world of Zoom. And by sharing our storytelling and our passion and love for theater, we can work together to provide an outlet for our shared creativity while giving back to this incredible cause." click here
