Angelina Ballerina The Musical - In this family-friendly show based on the CG-animated series, Angelina Ballerina The Next Steps on PBS KIDS, Angelina and her friends are all aflutter because a special guest is coming to visit Camembert Academy. To show off their skills, Angelina and her friends will perform all types of dance, including hip-hop, modern dance, the Irish jig and of course, ballet. Angelina is the most excited of all, but will she get the starring moment she hopes for?

Dramatis Personae - Peruvian playwright Gonzalo Rodriguez Risco delves into the intersecting lives and minds of three authors searching for inspirational triggers amid the trigger-happy environment of Peru’s political coup in the early ’90s. When the writers’ demons emerge, the lines between fiction and reality blur in this dark and wickedly witty play that forever changes what it means to be “based on a true story."

El gato con botas (Puss in Boots) - Puss, a charismatic kitty with cunning wit and irresistible Latin charm, promises a poor miller everlasting love and fortune. All the cat needs to pull off his trick are a hat, a cape and a purr-fect pair of boots! This new Gotham Chamber Opera-Tectonic Theater Project  production offers a grand, melodic score and libretto transforming a favorite fairy tale into a heroic and humorous rags-to-riches adventure. As a cast of five singers provides the vocals, stunning creations from London puppet masters Blind Summit Theatre fill the stage. Performances 10/1, 10/7 & 10/9 are in Spanish -- all others are in English. All performances are supertitled in English.

The Human Scale - Following up on his essay "Captives" published in the November 9, 2009 issue of The New Yorker, Pulitzer Prize winner Lawrence Wright performs his newest piece, an unsparing and graphic exploration of the ongoing crisis in Gaza.

In the Footprint: The Battle Over Atlantic Yards - Presented by The Civilians, this lively theatrical production chronicles the conflicts surrounding the largest development project in Brooklyn's history and is inspired by interviews with the real-life players in the controversy. The culmination of a two-year-long company investigation, In the Footprint examines the conflicts that erupted in the case of the Atlantic Yards through to their current resolution in an attempt to discover how the fate of the city is decided in present-day New York and what can be learned from this epic and ongoing story of politics, money, and the places we call home.

Je Suis Dead - Three lonely people have just survived a train crash and reality is folding in on them. Emily is weird, Helen is boring and James is an ass. In their vulnerable, post-crash state unknown parts of themselves manifest as strange characters from the past, each with their own story to tell. This is a show about the past within the present, about still being alive although already dead and being more alive while living.

Way to Heaven - Based on the notorious true story of the Theresienstadt concentration camp where the Nazis constructed a fake village to fool international inspectors and quell extermination rumors, Juan Mayorga's play begins years after the fact with an account by the Red Cross employee who was there, then leaps backward in time to show the creation and rehearsal of another play, one in which the Jewish prisoners are assigned roles (Mayor, Boy #1, etc.) and given lines to say to the inspectors.  Although based on historic events, Way To Heaven is not documentary theater.  It is a universal story about fear to take action, and our ultimate decision to overcome it or live in the apparent comfort it provides.
