Tickets $18 (tdf); Box office: SMARTTIX (212) 868-4444 or www.smarttix.com For more information, visit www.HTRonline.org Horizon Theatre Rep presents "The Balcony" by Jean Genet in Suits and Shirtsleeves. Genet's menacing and hilarious world of political intrigue, violent revolution and distorted eroticism is measured against the mass-media manipulation of today. Directed by Frank Licato, Horizon Theatre Rep will eschew the pomp of some historical productions. Instead, it will populate the chimerical classic with baby-kissing, pancake-eating, sleeves-rolled-up politicians who might be recognized from our current electoral campaigns. The idea is to illustrate the essential theme of the play: the transformation of our industrial society into a technocracy where image rules over substance. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=119093 The Arclight Theatre The Arclight Theatre
