Within the attic of an insane asylum, in a time and place of little importance and for reasons unknown, eight women of history convene to discuss the business of their lives - shells of people who once embodied greatness, now pieced together by moments of nostalgia and hysteria. When all that was has been stripped away, these women are brought together to test their fate in the final act - that of survival. The absurdity of the world in which they live forces them to be as they always were, but spiral further and further down the rabbit hole of insanity - to simultaneously be and not to be.

Directed by John DeSotelle, Nuance Theatre Co. brings John Patrick Shanley's DANNY AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA to the Nubox - an intimate blackbox theater in the heart of Hell's Kitchen where (in my experience) theatrical magic always happens. Presented as an Equity stage production, DeSotelle brings two incredibly talented actors to the stage for a limited two-week run.

Intimacy And Danger Explode On Stage In DANNY AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA Photo Intimacy And Danger Explode On Stage In DANNY AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA
by A.A. Cristi - Dec 5, 2019

A powerful story of two strangers (Roberta and Danny) a?" and their fateful meeting in a cheerless dive bar in the Bronx.  What begins as a distrustful and antagonistic conversation eventually unleashes an unlikely connection, as the two prod and wrangle through their animosity and loneliness as in an a?oeapache dancea?? (a violent dance for two), towards a painfully achieved exoneration, finding absolution in each other and hope of a future beyond hostility, overwhelming guilt and shame.

by Kristen Morale - Nov 24, 2019

Under the brilliant direction of Judith Feingold, with an exclusive three-performance run at the NuBox Theater (at the John DeSotelle Studio) in Hell's Kitchen, Cocaine is such an unexpectedly powerful piece that brings out the reality of addiction amidst the love of two young people, overcome by the life they are forced to live. As part of the John D. Sotelle Studio Series and exposing the beauty of Pendleton's neglected work, Cocaine is as succinct as it is a beautiful representation of what love looks like in the face of struggle.
