Jessica Blank & Erik Jensen (Usa) - The Public Theater
January 07, 2018 - New York

Gonzo journalist, America's greatest rock critic and inventor of the word "punk," legendary music writer Lester Bangs was an American icon. Outsized, manic, chaotic, and impossibly creative, Bangs traveled with some of the most mythologized musical figures of the 20th century: The Clash, Bob Marley, Lou Reed­—peeling away the veneer between star and audience and exposing the greats as flawed human beings. As the ragged, rebel ethos of the 70s gave way to the corporate pop of the 80s, Bangs lost the myth he'd built a life around and died of a drug overdose in 1982. This solo play by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen (award-winning writers of The Exonerated and Aftermath) adapts Bangs' writing to chart the life, work and death of one of the 20th century's most ground-breaking, risk-taking, pioneering voices.

"Repeater with Josh Sharp & Jacob Sharp" at QED: A Place To Show & Tell - QED: A Place To Show & Tell
January 07, 2018 - Astoria

ASTORIA (Sunday, 1/7/18, 8:30PM, $5) – Hosts Evan Forde Barden and Patrick Cartelli are friggin' pumped to announce the January edition of Repeater: A Little Show About Big Songs, featuring Josh Sharp & Jacob Sharp. The show will be at QED: A Place to Show & Tell. Big time music fans Evan Forde Barden (Magnet Theater, One Hundred Dates) and Patrick Cartelli (Summer Collider) host this monthly talk show about people's favorite songs. Each month, they invite a special guest to share one song that they love - be it an all-time favorite, a track that reminds them of a great story, or something that just blew their minds. Then a musician takes the stage to cover it and play a song of their own. The January show takes place on Sunday, 1/7/18, 8:30PM, at QED and our guest will be Josh Sharp of The Opposition with Jordan Klepper. Previous guests have included Josh Gondelman, Aparna Nancherla, Eliot Glazer, and Brendan Brown (of Wheatus). Music will be performed by Jacob Sharp of the band Mipso.

Erin Markey (Usa) - The Public Theater
January 07, 2018 - New York

Judge Judy once said: Don't Pee On My Leg and Tell Me It's Raining. But Erin Markey is not sure that that isn't rain. Because in her world, her flower laden open casket service is a theme park, and all the rides are about how confusing sexuality, desire and identity are. What we're trying to say is that Erin Markey and co-composer Emily Bate will present musical excerpts from their critically acclaimed musical A Ride On The Irish Cream (2016)*, slow-jam cabaret funeral Boner Killer (2017), and in-development Beach Boys/Spice Girls inspired energy concert Little Surfer (2019). They wouldn't dare do it by themselves, though. With them is a rock band, a girl group, infamous schmerm/lover Becca Blackwell and many disgusting exceptions to Markey's no-sequins rule in the costume department. The audience is invited to watch as Erin's comedic storytelling melts into gorgeous harmony driven music, but guaranteed: Erin will turn her wild eye on you and give you a slumber party command you don't dare disobey.

Andrew Schneider (Usa) - The Public Theater
January 07, 2018 - New York

Andrew Schneider and his team follow up their revolutionary, OBIE award-winning tech-theater masterpiece YOUARENOWHERE with a mind-bending examination of what constitutes a single life and the endless possible outcomes at the precise moment of death. Collaborators Alicia ayo Ohs, Alessandra Calabi, and Bobby McElver join Schneider to continue their exploration of hyper-precise trademark design. They command thrilling light and sound effects with deft physical performance alongside a rapid-fire flow of text that blends pathos and humor with intelligence and vulnerability. From the spellbinding chaos of digital machinations and pulsating sensory extremes emerges a poignant, shared consciousness perceiving where we are, how we got here, and what comes AFTER.

Janek Turkowski (Poland) Margarete - The Public Theater
Through January 07, 2018 - New York

In 2008, Janek Turkowski discovered a cardboard box containing 64 reels of 8mm film in a North German market close to the Polish border. Each reel consisted of images of the same woman, Margarete Ruhbe. Captivated by the celluloid subject, Turkowski embarked on an artistic reconstruction of the life of a woman he didn't and possibly couldn't know. Set against powerful images of the Communist Bloc, the story of Margarete unfolds from Turkowski's curiosity-driven purchase to his private investigation into the identity of a woman who left only a brief but indelible mark through home movies. Using digital and 8mm projections that he edited from the found footage, this intimate solo performance is a reflection on memory, how it can be recorded and how it can be perceived.

Dickie Beau (Uk) - The Public Theater
Through January 07, 2018 - New York

When award-winning lip sync maestro and intrepid drag fabulist Dickie Beau realized that he might never play Shakespeare's tragic prince, he decided to turn himself into a human Hamlet mix-tape. He would channel audio recordings of great historical performances of theater's most famous role to "re-member" the ghosts of Hamlet from the past. Humorous and haunting, Re-Member Me is part documentary theatre, part 21st-century séance adventure through cultural landscapes and a contemporary ghost story. In an ode to the impermanence of personhood and posterity, Beau chronicles the remarkable story behind the greatest Hamlet almost never seen.

Jessica Blank & Erik Jensen (Usa) - The Public Theater
January 12, 2018 - New York

Gonzo journalist, America's greatest rock critic and inventor of the word "punk," legendary music writer Lester Bangs was an American icon. Outsized, manic, chaotic, and impossibly creative, Bangs traveled with some of the most mythologized musical figures of the 20th century: The Clash, Bob Marley, Lou Reed­—peeling away the veneer between star and audience and exposing the greats as flawed human beings. As the ragged, rebel ethos of the 70s gave way to the corporate pop of the 80s, Bangs lost the myth he'd built a life around and died of a drug overdose in 1982. This solo play by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen (award-winning writers of The Exonerated and Aftermath) adapts Bangs' writing to chart the life, work and death of one of the 20th century's most ground-breaking, risk-taking, pioneering voices.

Janek Turkowski (Poland) Margarete - The Public Theater
January 12, 2018 - New York

In 2008, Janek Turkowski discovered a cardboard box containing 64 reels of 8mm film in a North German market close to the Polish border. Each reel consisted of images of the same woman, Margarete Ruhbe. Captivated by the celluloid subject, Turkowski embarked on an artistic reconstruction of the life of a woman he didn't and possibly couldn't know. Set against powerful images of the Communist Bloc, the story of Margarete unfolds from Turkowski's curiosity-driven purchase to his private investigation into the identity of a woman who left only a brief but indelible mark through home movies. Using digital and 8mm projections that he edited from the found footage, this intimate solo performance is a reflection on memory, how it can be recorded and how it can be perceived.

Dickie Beau (Uk) - The Public Theater
January 12, 2018 - New York

When award-winning lip sync maestro and intrepid drag fabulist Dickie Beau realized that he might never play Shakespeare's tragic prince, he decided to turn himself into a human Hamlet mix-tape. He would channel audio recordings of great historical performances of theater's most famous role to "re-member" the ghosts of Hamlet from the past. Humorous and haunting, Re-Member Me is part documentary theatre, part 21st-century séance adventure through cultural landscapes and a contemporary ghost story. In an ode to the impermanence of personhood and posterity, Beau chronicles the remarkable story behind the greatest Hamlet almost never seen.

Modesto Flako Jimenez (Usa) - The Public Theater
January 13, 2018 - New York

INCOMING! is Under the Radar's festival within a festival, featuring in-process works of artistic ambition by the wildly diverse artists of the Devised Theater Working Group. "Listen to the beats / The rhythm of my Bushwick streets." Brooklyn impresario Modesto Flako Jimenez conjures his beloved borough in this bilingual elegy, told through poems, projections, and music. With lyrical brilliance and irreverent play, ¡Oye! For My Dear Brooklyn complicates our perceptions of race, language, and gentrification and calls us to be truly present. With savage lyricism, Flako populates the stage with immigrants, drug dealers, condoritos, tiguerasos, mothers and sons, all asking the same question: "What is my moral worth?"

They command thrilling light and sound effects with deft physical performance alongside a rapid-fire flow of text that blends pathos and humor with intelligence and vulnerability.

Erin Markey (Usa) - The Public Theater
January 14, 2018 - New York

Judge Judy once said: Don't Pee On My Leg and Tell Me It's Raining. But Erin Markey is not sure that that isn't rain. Because in her world, her flower laden open casket service is a theme park, and all the rides are about how confusing sexuality, desire and identity are. What we're trying to say is that Erin Markey and co-composer Emily Bate will present musical excerpts from their critically acclaimed musical A Ride On The Irish Cream (2016)*, slow-jam cabaret funeral Boner Killer (2017), and in-development Beach Boys/Spice Girls inspired energy concert Little Surfer (2019). They wouldn't dare do it by themselves, though. With them is a rock band, a girl group, infamous schmerm/lover Becca Blackwell and many disgusting exceptions to Markey's no-sequins rule in the costume department. The audience is invited to watch as Erin's comedic storytelling melts into gorgeous harmony driven music, but guaranteed: Erin will turn her wild eye on you and give you a slumber party command you don't dare disobey.
