Fantastic Planet (Live Score by Morricone Youth) - Prospect Park
Through June 12, 2019 - Brooklyn

Barry Bostwick, Jennifer Drake, Eric Baugin, Jean Topart Fantastic Planet is a Live Sound Cinema event featuring a live score by Morricone Youth. Knowledge is power in an alien world of Fantastic Planet (aka La Planète sauvage) where the oppressed Oms/humans rebel from their overseers, the Triages. With visuals consisting of stop-motion cut-out courtesy of artist and writer Roland Topor, it's not surprising that this film is noted for its surrealist imagery. In fact, it's Fantastic Planet's bizarre aesthetics and an intricate sex scene make this animated feature most memorable. So let's be honest, there could be no better way to get trippy than seeing this film with a live score at midnite…you know what we're saying.

Second Stage Theater - The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts
Through July 13, 2019 - New York

Come celebrate the decades of plays and musicals that have defined Second Stage as the home for living American playwrights. In 1979, a new theater was born with a novel idea: give a second chance to American plays that are worthy of a second look. Second Stage Theater started in a cramped 100-seat space on the 16th floor of a hotel on the Upper West Side. That first production was far from an easy or auspicious launch – the director and three actors quit, one at the very last minute (luckily, a young actor named Jeff Daniels agreed to step in and perform).

THE WHITE DRESS by Roger Q. Mason - Access Theater
Through July 20, 2019 - New York

A Coming-of-Age-Play for the They/Them Generation written by queer black/filipinx playwright Roger Q. Mason. Meet the Howard family: Theo is a busy black attorney; Hazel is his dutiful Filipina wife; and their son is bright, promising Jonathan. No, fuck that - here’s the Howard family: Theo has been pushed in the closet; Hazel’s Tiger mom tactics have kept him there; and all Jonathan wants to do is kiss Winnie, wear femme clothes, and love themself. Part religious rite, part dance/performance, THE WHITE DRESS is Jonathan Howard’s genderqueer coming-of-age journey through familial shaming, peer bullying, and unrequited love to redefine what male looks, sounds and feels like. Underscored live by Brooklyn-based DJ SunSon PDX and directed and choreographed by Adin Walker, THE WHITE DRESS features a music and movement score that accentuates Jonathan’s odyssey to be free in their own skin. This upcoming production comes after an acclaimed workshop production as part of the Araca Project, which was advocated for by influencers including Condola Rashad and Sara Ramirez. Playwright Roger Q. Mason’s lauded script has been named Finalist for The Lark Playwrights' Week and the ina... (read more)

Crushing Baby Animals - The Plaxall Gallery
Through July 21, 2019 - Long Island City

Long Island City. 2019. In an ego-driven and narcissistic world, two women possess the distinct anxiety of calling themselves artists. In a last ditch effort before they throw in the proverbial towel and become accountants, the pair begin work on what they hope will be their magnum opus, an ambitious and hellish physical-theatre adaptation of Dante’s Inferno. Crushing Baby Animals follows two traumatized women growing up in the millennial age as they accidentally open a cosmic wormhole that sucks them through space, time and the human mind. This meta work takes us on an uncharted and timely adventure through parallel dimensions and personal hells, bringing us face to face with our own antagonistic Dopplegangers, the perils of the human psyche, and the absurd pitfalls of human identity. The play blends physical theatre, multimedia and a healthy dose of humor in a unique artistic experience. “Crushing Baby Animals reflects our real shared experience as women making theatre in New York City, our real shared nightmare, and the discovery of what that coincidence could possibly mean,” states playwrights Tana Sirois and Maria Swisher. “Through a sci-fi theatrical device, we explore how...

Not Even The Good Things - Theatre Row
Through July 27, 2019 - New York

NOT EVEN THE GOOD THINGS, a new play by rising playwright Joseph Scott Ford will play a limited run July 10th - July 27th at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street).

For tickets and further information visit noteventhegoodthings.com, or call (212) 239-6200. NOT EVEN THE GOOD THINGS is a dark comedy where a millennial getaway falls apart in the presence of the ghost of a young girl that only one character -- despite his best efforts -- is able to see. The play deals with a group of six 20-something-year-old friends who gather in a mountain cabin to enjoy a well-deserved vacation. It’s just that they can’t seem to enjoy anything, really. What is supposed to be a fun and carefree evening evolves into a drunken circus of attempted infidelity, nonsense, and weird religion. This all takes place under the watchful gaze of a young girl who only shows herself to one person, while he steadily and hilariously loses his grip on reality in the company of his oblivious friends. The nature of shame, sexuality, loyalty, intoxication, ... (read more)
