June 28, 2010 - by CG News Desk

The Actor's Project NYC Season 17 Productions - Four fast-paced, all-comedy industry showcases featuring new actors as well as actors with solid experience in theatre, commercials, film, television, and stand-up comedy.

Gay Blues - What the hell is gay marriage? There's something about the word gay in front of the word marriage that gets people mad. Well, Matt Cleaver is mad too; mad that getting "gay married" is illegal. He's looking to change all that, nothing gives people that get up and go like wailing the blues. Gay Blues.

Henry VI part 3 - Revenge and ambition battle for the crown in the bloodiest chapter of the English Civil War. Henry VI part 3 stands on its own as an epic political struggle and tells the origin story of Shakespeare's most abominable monarch, Richard III.

I'll Be Damned - The story of a friendless, comic-book-loving homeschooler named Louis who receives a seemingly irresistible offer from Satan. Louis' mother is a little late in coming to terms with her son growing up, God seems lost in his vision of a perfect world, and Louis is discovering himself as he attempts to find just one true friend. This fresh new musical comedy begs the universal question: "Is there a way to make people like you without having to sell your soul to the devil?"

You've Got Hate Mail - Billy Van Zandt and Jane Milmore's comic answer to A.R. Gurney's Love Letters. in which love "bytes" all when an extra-marital affair goes horribly wrong, thanks to a juicy e-mail left sitting on a desktop. The story is told entirely in e-mails from laptop computers, although the play still manages to have an unforgettable chase scene - thanks to Blackberries and SideKicks.
