by BWW News Desk - Oct 10, 2018

Playwright/director Elia Schneider--born in Israel, raised in Venezuela and now an American citizen--is known for hauntingly visual productions that transcend language with strong imagery and a dreamlike fresco of movement and design. Her newest work, 'Citizens of the Gray or the Dark Thing that Sleeps Inside Me,' deals with the war of the sexes in the age of the #MeToo Movement. Hitherto, her theatrical productions have mostly emerged from ideas derived from Kafka. Now she is channeling Strindberg for a new work of ensemble creation with her Teatro Dramma. Theater for the New City will present the world premiere of the piece November 9 to 25.  It will be Schneider's Theater for the New City debut. (more...)

Theater For The New City To Present ARENDT-HEIDEGGER: A LOVE STORYTheater For The New City To Present ARENDT-HEIDEGGER: A LOVE STORY
by BWW News Desk - Aug 29, 2018

Martin Heidegger and Hannah Arendt were leading intellectuals of the twentieth century. In the 1920's, they had a passionate affair. In the 1930's, Heidegger became an ardent Nazi while Arendt became an ardent Zionist. Nevertheless, after the war, they still continued to correspond and to meet. Douglas Lackey dramatizes their relationship in 'Arendt-Heidegger: A Love Story,' a five-character play to be presented by Theater for the New City from September 27 to October 14.

Two short one-acts, "Wild Orchids" and "Rosary Hill" by Heather J. Violanti, will debut September 10 to 16 in a double bill presented by Theater for the New City's Dream Up Festival. "Wild Orchids" is a film noir-esque, feminist, and fictionalized take on 1940's Hollywood, where a secretary has a chance encounter with William Faulkner that may change both their lives. In "Rosary Hill,' two gentle nuns tend to their garden in upstate New York but a closer look at the harsh Mother Superior reveals they may not be all that they seem. Both plays feature canny, nuanced female characters who have much more going on under the surface than meets the eye. Jennifer Sandella directs. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Aug 24, 2018

Who can you turn to when trust is betrayed? "You Don't Know How It Feels," a new play by Kelley Blessing, is an honest and daring look at a student who is sexually assaulted by her teacher, resulting in a traumatic case of emotional manipulation and dangerously spiraling depression. In an attempt to further the dialogue that will help end the stigma surrounding this crucial issue, the play fits aptly into the MeToo narrative, telling just of the many thousands of young girls' stories about sexual assault. Theater for the New City's Dream Up Festival will present the world premiere of the play August 29 to September 15. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Aug 24, 2018

The age of sixteen is a delicate one-especially if you're in trouble with the law. "Sixteen," a new drama by Hama Zaman examines the root causes of criminal activity at the age of sixteen, an age where you could be tried as an adult but are far from it. Incorporating spoken word, poetry and multimedia, the play cracks open each offender's story two ways: from inside the subject's mind by direct address monologues, and from the outside analyses and judgments of psychiatric and law enforcement 'professionals.' Theater for the New City's Dream Up Festival will present the world premiere of "Sixteen" August 26 to September 9, directed by Michael Whitney. (more...)

The touch business is rarely about being heard. In "Masseur", a new dance-theater piece written and directed by Christian Ávila, professionalism succumbs to sexual favors when a Latino massage-therapist trying to make ends meet in New York City is faced with a client who wants more than just a massage. What ensues is anything but out-of-the-ordinary for the masseur, whose station in life repeatedly prevents him from making the honest living he longs for. Theater for the New City's Dream Up Festival will present the world premiere of the piece September 6 to September 14. (more...)
