Rattlestick Extends THROUGH THE YELLOW HOUR Through 11/10

Rattlestick Playwrights Theater Artistic Director David Van Asselt and Managing Director Brian Long have announced that the world premiere of Through the Yellow Hour, written and directed by Adam Rapp, will extend through Saturday, November 10, at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, 224 Waverly Place-off Seventh Avenue South, between Perry and West 11 Streets.
Review - Through The Yellow Hour: Apocalyptic Boho Days

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of Adam Rapp's Through The Yellow Hour is that the playwright/director has intentionally written a piece that will never be performed with a completely age-appropriate cast – at least not legally in this country – since it includes a fully nude, sexually suggestive scene between a thirty-year-old character and another who is fourteen.  But because the person playing the youth is obviously of age, the scene is likely to leave audience members thinking of the older character as someone who has learned to trust and be caring again, rather than as someone committing statutory rape.
