Untitled Mars (This Title May Change)

Conceived and Directed by Jay Scheib

Taking a cue from the space industry, Jay Scheib pits hard Science against Philip K. Dick. Interplanetary speculation runs amok, the indigenous population gets screwed, and a strange “anomalous” kid seems to hold all the answers. Developed at MIT with a team of Mars researchers and anthropologists, a mission to colonize the Red Planet is revving up for 2017. Imagining what might happen once we get there, Scheib drops seven performers into a simulated Martian society. Can’t make ends meet on Earth? Consider a one-way ticket to Mars!

Democracy In America

Conceived and Directed by Annie Dorsen

4 STARS from Helen Shaw, Time Out New York: “Tony Torn, Okwui Okpokwasili and Philippa Kaye cycle through the merry chaos” “Postmodern vaudeville” “[Okwui] Okpokwasili proves that she can read a Staples catalog and still be interesting.”

Jason Zinoman, NY Times: “A cunning satire of contemporary politics that transforms selling out into performance art”

Annie Dorsen, critically acclaimed co-creator and director of the hit rock musical on Broadway, Passing Strange, continues to break molds with her new performance event Democracy in America. Consumers are the creators. The entire show including the content was up for sale through a public online store. Once the shopping was over, Ms. Dorsen tied it all together into a live art event that is sure to surprise. Do you get what you paid for? Yes, you do. This wild ride will indeed include ancient Roman texts, a fan dance to Ride of the Valkyries, a tapioca explosion, and – O.K. people, who ordered the rim job?

World Premiere

Now through Sunday, April 20

Tuesdays – Fridays at 8:30pm

Saturdays at 4:30 and 8:30pm
