Still Life

At the pinnacle of her career, internationally recognized photographer Carrie Ann inexplicably shuts down. Lost and afraid to even pick up a camera, her sudden descent is interrupted by an unexpected romance with Jeff, a trend analyst determined to help her move on even while facing his own uncertain future. Two-time Drama Desk-nominated playwright Alexander Dinelaris (Red Dog Howls), is quickly being recognized as a stunning new voice in American theater. Film and theater director Will Frears (Omnium Gatherum) brings his discerning eye to this funny and heartbreaking play about a generation paralyzed by fear. The production's uniformly superb cast features Dominic Chianese (Uncle Junior in The Sopranos), Adriane Lenox (Tony Award-winner for Doubt), Sarah Paulson (of NBC's Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip), Frederick Weller (of MCC's In a Dark Dark House and In Plain Sight on USA), and more.

Dorothi Fox and Arthur French will star in the premiere of 'Imminently Yours' by Karimah, to be presented by The Negro Ensemble Company (NEC) from June 17 to 30 at Theatre 80, 80 St. Marks Place. The play deals with the socio/philosophical issues of expropriation of their land and history by eminent domain in today's politics.  A secret mountain enclave has been inhabited for centuries by descendants of slaves. When its tradition of secrecy is breached by a millenial resident, the remote hamlet is discovered by the state's governor, who aims to evict its elderly residents by eminent domain for nonpayment of taxes, but underestimates the savvy community there. The play depicts an antagonistic society pitted against elders who are peacefully reliving their history. Generations ban together as they learn the past, teach the present and fight for their legacy. Count Stovall directs.
