"Life is Never Still"
The tragedy has given me an insight on a very deep level: What happens to others happens to all of us.
I am profoundly sorrowful.
Theater for the New City, Crystal Field, Executive Artistic Director, in association with the cell,
A Twenty First Century Salon
, present The Hive's A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S ^ Queer DREAM
This is not your grandmother’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, but one for 21st century NYC—a modern re-imagining of Shakespeare’s classic, which casts Hermia and Lysander as lesbian lovers with Demetrius and Helena as a gay couple. In the midst of the national gay marriage controversies, this production exposes contemporary America's sexual hang-ups and resistance to gay marriage. Concepts of what constitutes gender, sexual orientation and power will be explored and exploded! A wild bacchanal of every fetish imaginable--filled with delectable and dangerous fairies straight out of everyone’s fantasies and fears.
Performances @ Theater for the New City, 155 First Avenue (Between 9th & 10th St.)
Wednesday - Sunday, 8pm
Additional 3pm performance Saturday, May 5th and 12th
Closing Night, Saturday May 19, 2012

While the reviews for both our Irish plays, Rated P and Russian Transport have been excellent, I can't figure out why everyone hasn't yet seen them. People, please come out and support not-for-profit theater! Your tax-deductible dollars would be better spent on art than wasted on the wars waged by the crazy politicians who are making a big show of this ridiculous presidential campaign. What kind of world do we want to live in? One of greed and gore, or one of peace and beauty? You tell me. Check out the Irish cell review in Back Stage!
Oh, what a night!
They knotted their ties and tied the knot. The sublime dinner at Per Se was the perfect complement to the sublimely simple ceremony to legalize the union of my son, Jesse, with his partner of 9 years, Adrian. How great to live in a state that, at long last, allows us a simple human freedom...to love.
I’m so ridiculously exited!!! The New Group, producer of outstanding off Broadway theater, will be honoring ME at their annual Gala to be held on February 27th. I am thrilled to be recognized along with the great playwright, David Rabe, for my contribution to the community and would be especially honored if the cell audience would join in the festivities. Not-for-profit theater is dependent on the private sector to stay alive and thrive. Please consider joining the party with your purchase of a ticket to this star-studded event!
