Middle of the Night


From three-time Academy Award-winning screenwriter Paddy Chayefsky (Network, Marty and The Hospital) comes MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, a comedy about a May-December romance in 1950's New York City. When an older Jewish widower and a young gentile bride of another man meet and fall in love, their relationship throws their disapproving families into a tizzy. This long lost gem from "the poet laureate of the romantically underprivileged" (Theatre Arts) explores "average people... fumbling for the comfort of sheer companionship."

(The New York Times).


Running Time: 2 hours and 5 minutes, with one intermission

Clurman Theater

Musician and comedian Jen Kwok's Songs for One began as a live series where she performed daringly intimate, interactive concerts for one person at a time. Jen created the series in 2016 in the midst of the presidential elections and a string of violent attacks on queer people and people of color (Pulse nightclub shooting, the shootings of Philando Castile & Alton Sterling, etc.). Combining music, meditation and visual imagery, this series fostered real life human connection as an antidote to the disconnection and divisiveness created by the social and political climate at the time, as well as the effects of social media and the 24 hour news cycle. The series spread through word of mouth and Jen ultimately performed for over 100 people, one at a time!
