Out and About, Late October

Blogging from rehearsal so I’m rushed and sure to miss many worthy shout-outs, but we must start with a reading featuring Flux Member Jake Alexander and a bunch of Flux friends:

The Algonquin Theater
123 E. 24th St between Park & Lex
Running time: 1 hour
Seating is extremely limited!!! RSVPs are required. Email Promised.Land.Reading@gmail.com to reserve seats.

And make SURE you have your tickets for The Blood Brothers Present…The New Guignol, featuring Flux Member Cotton Wright and loads of people Flux loves.

The dynamic duo of Amanda Feldman and Jennifer Conley Darling have united to produce Blackouts, and tomorrow night is the last to see it (sorry for the tardy SO).

Whose house? bauhaus the bauhaus. I’m really looking forward to catching Nerve Tank’s new play that features Modernism! Utopia! Architecture! Sit-upons! You had me at Utopia.

Don’t forget about Electric Pear’s new joint, Balaton. I’d love to see the Pearl strut their stuff in their new space in The Playboy of the Western World.

Coming up in the near future, CollaborationTown made the savvy choice of asking Scott Ebersold to direct Children at Play, featuring Susan Louise O’Connor. Scott has done amazing work on everything I’ve seen him do, so I really hoping I’ll be able to see this. And Flux friend Frederique Nahmani is doing my second favorite Tom Stoppard play, The Real Thing. (Can you guess my favorite? A Scrintle plush doll to the winning guess!)

BUT…my greatest personal stokitude is for the Women’s Project production of Liz Duffy Adam’s Or,. Liz’s play Dog Act is one of my all time favorites, and her new play looks at the life of playwright Aphra Behn. And, to quote their website, “While war rages and Aphra and her friends celebrate free love, cross-dressing and pastoral lyricism, the 1660s start to look a lot like the 1960s.” So it even fits with our The Lesser Seductions of History (and what’s 300 years between friends?)

What did I miss? What would you recommend?
