I wish I had the time and money to be a season subscriber to every single Off-Broadway company this year, plus a few Off-Off Broadway troupes.
One can’t eat every single dessert at the buffet, but one can have a lot of fun filling up one’s plate. Here are just a few of the tasty treats on offer. Click through and support some terrific New York theatre!
Signature Theater. You had me at “A new play by Athol Fugard.” Plus, I love the cafe and live music at the Pershing Center.
Vineyard Theatre. Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ play Gloria is about editorial assistants. Let’s just say, I can relate.
Playwright’s Horizons. One of my favorite things about Playwright’s is how they beta-test new musicals (Ever heard of a little show called Sunday in the Park with George?). This year’s is called Iowa, and it’s by Jenny Schwartz and Todd Almond.
Pearl Theater Company. Their new season includes Moliere’s Don Juan, directed by Hal Brooks. French farce? Yes, please!
Classic Stage Company. I’m especially excited for Christopher Marlow’s Doctor Faustus, the inspiration for Goethe’s massively influential Faust plays.
