SIDE EFFECTS MAY INCLUDE

When, at age 47, Phil's wife is diagnosed with Parkinson's, it sends him on a hysterical roller-coaster ride through an escalating mountain of pills, dangerous liaisons, questions of manhood and womanhood, desire, faith, love, and ultimately, an exploration whether our personalities and passions may be little more than tamper-resistant chemical reactions stirred up in our brains.

The talk of NY when a brief version of the story appeared in the NYT Modern Love column, Seinfeld writer Marc Jaffe and Broadway playwright Eric Coble expand the hilarity and delve into its depths, while actor Nick Koesters startles with his dexterity and heart. All proceeds benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation.

NATURE & PURPOSE

NATURE & PURPOSE is an exploration of the idea of ‘art’ told through the works of two contemporaries who made their marks in different mediums - painter JACKSON POLLOCK and performance artist CHRIS BURDEN. Both artists were considered rebels in their fields, and introduced the world to their radical and ‘no holds barred’ approach to creation.

Featuring the play A BEAST/A BURDEN by Billy Ray Brewton and POLLOCK: A FREQUENCY PARABLE by Matthew Marcum.

FLEABAG

After its sold-out run in London, Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s award-winning comedic play, directed by her longtime collaborator Vicky Jones, comes to New York for 5 weeks only. The play that inspired the hit television series, FLEABAG is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life. Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.
