This Week's Off-Broadway Openings: May 24th-May 30th

The Adventures of Hershele Ostropolyer - Subtitled “A Comic Tale Full of Song, Wit and Meshugene Antics,” this musical is based on the play Hershele Ostropolyer by Moyshe Gershenson. Before the Marx Brothers, there was "Hershele," a beloved folk hero and compassionate jester who battles injustice armed only with his wits. In this comic tale full of song, Hershele mobilizes a community to overcome the greedy desires of a villain who stands in the way of young love.

Long Day's Journey Into Night - Working in the classical Actor-Manager system, Seth Duerr directs and performs in Eugene O'Neill's Pulitzer Prize-winning autobiographical drama about a family addicted to drugs, alcohol, and hurting one another. The action covers a fateful day in their lives at their New England summer home in 1912. Drunken confessions and scathing humor in an escalating cycle of addiction and dysfunction, groping in the darkness to find their way back home.

Prophecy - Kathleen Chalfant stars in Karen Malpede’s play about the far-reaching effects of both the Iraq and Vietnam wars on those who served on the battlefield and those who served in protests. It is also the story of a marriage: Alan Golden, a Jew whose past includes an affair with an Arab coworker that results in the birth of a child, and his wife, Sarah, an actress and acting teacher whose intense bond with one of her students – a talented and vulnerable Iraq War veteran – triggers memories of a young man from her past.

Voice Lessons - Justin Tanner infuses his quirky insight and jaundiced sense of humor within the hilarious machinations of self-deluded community theater actress Ginny (Laurie Metcalf) and her catatonically despairing vocal coach Nate (French Stewart).
