OCCASIONALLY NOTHING to be Presented by Theater for the New City Photo OCCASIONALLY NOTHING to be Presented by Theater for the New City
by Chloe Rabinowitz - May 12, 2021

It was inevitable, perhaps, that post-truth politics would seep into 21st century absurdist theater. One sunny example is 'Occasionally Nothing' by Natalie Menna, which takes us to an upsetting time-to-come when something can become a profound, obvious nothing. Life becomes the time in between the sometimes which sometimes happen.

BWW Review: COLOR STRUCK at Theater for The New City Photo BWW Review: COLOR STRUCK at Theater for The New City
by Derek McCracken - Mar 2, 2020

With his wide grin, open arms and humble humor, actor-activist-comedian Donald E. Lacy, Jr. takes the stage and builds a rapport with the audience almost immediately. At its core, Color Struck is an 80-minute genre-transcending show that effectively blends comedy, drama, improvisation, dancing, tone poems, hip-hop and commentary. Although relatability is Lacy's jam (we see him, hear him, laugh with him, and trust him), don't let his vim and visage fool you. Just as we get comfortable with his unique brand of dramedy, he shifts from 'what it's like to be Black but pass for white' into fresh-and-fierce takes on colorism and institutional racism.

BWW Review: THE WHITES Inverts Race at Theater For The New City Photo BWW Review: THE WHITES Inverts Race at Theater For The New City
by Derek McCracken - Nov 29, 2019

As creatively ambitious as it is confounding, THE WHITES illuminates a race-inverted space where Black is white, the Whites are 'black' and...vice versa? Visually, narratively and dramatically, this play is far from subtle; familial archetypes and societal stereotypes collide, challenging us to recognize the Other while coming to grips with our self-awareness of implicit bias, privilege, and social injustice.
