The Velocity Of Autumn

by Eric Coble

A Black Curtain Reader's Theatre

SEPTEMBER 23 & 24, 2017 @ 7:30 PM

The Velocity of Autumn
She’s Going Out With a BANG!

The Velocity of Autumn swirls around Alexandra, an 80-year-old artist in a showdown with her family over where she’ll spend her remaining years. In Alexandra’s corner are her wit, her volcanic passion, and the fact that she’s barricaded herself in her Brooklyn brownstone with enough Molotov cocktails to take out the block. But her children have their own secret weapon: estranged son Chris, who returns after 20 years, crawls through Alexandra’s second-floor window and becomes the family’s unlikely mediator.  According to The New York Times, Eric Coble’s Tony-nominated The Velocity of Autumn is a “bracing, honest, and often deliciously funny” look at the fragility and ferocity of life.

The Liar
All the World’s A Lie…

In a bitingly witty farce from comedic maestro David Ives (Venus in Fur, All In The Timing), The Liar turns 17th century France on its ear in this non-stop linguistic masterpiece. Dorante is a charming young man with a bright future and one glaring personality quirk – he cannot tell the truth. When he hires a valet who cannot tell a lie, the fun begins: mistaken identities, breathtakingly intricate lies, duels, intrigue, identical-twin lady’s maids, and multiple marriage proposals all combine to create a hilarious urban romance that will leave you laughing long after the final curtain. The New York Times calls The Liar “an effervescent delight… Mr. Ives’ lyric and comic invention never falters.”

The Shape of Things

by Neil Labute

A Black Curtain Reader's Theatre

JANUARY 27 & 28, 2018 @ 7:30 PM

The Shape of Things
Seduction Is An Art

How far would you go for love? For art? What would you be willing to change? And what price might you pay? Neil Labute’s The Shape of Things addresses these painful questions as he takes an unblinking stare into the gristle of modern relationships. The play tells the story of Evelyn, a sexy, aggressive artist, and Adam, a shy, insecure student, who become embroiled in an intense affair. Before long, Adam, under Evelyn’s steady influence, goes to unimaginable lengths to improve his appearance and character, against the advice of his best friends Phillip and Jenny whose own engagement is beginning to crumble. This “bitterly funny” and “dangerously seductive” play challenges our deeply entrenched ideas about art, manipulation, and love.

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane
Open your heart. Someone will come.

Based on Newbery-winner Kate DiCamillo’s (Because of Winn-Dixie, The Tale of Despereaux) beloved book, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane is a breathtaking story of finding friendship, finding yourself, and eventually finding your way home. The story follows Edward Tulane, a dapper china rabbit who is given as a birthday present to 10-year-old Abilene, who loves him almost as much as Edward loves himself. But when he accidentally gets tossed overboard a cruise ship, self-absorbed Edward finds he has a lot to learn. As he embarks on an unexpected 20-year journey, Edward is caught in a fisherman’s net, lands in a garbage dump, travels with a happy hobo, and comforts a sick child, during which he encounters a series of people who take him into their homes and hearts. Called “one of the most touching journeys I ever could have imagined” by DC Theatre Scene, Edward Tulane teaches us all that even a heart of the most breakable kind can learn to love, to lose, and to love again.

The Shape of Things
Give the man a hand, before he loses his head!

In this darkly comical work, the mysterious gun-toting Carmichael has been searching for his missing left hand for decades. Enter two bickering lovebirds with a hand to sell and a hotel clerk with an aversion to gunfire, and soon life and death are up for grabs. Called “perfect, demented, ecstatic, sadistic and imaginative” by the New York Times, A Behanding in Spokane reveals the gritty underbelly of American daily existence, exposing the obsessions, prejudices, madness, horrors, and above all the absurdities that crawl beneath it. This is black comedy at its funniest, thanks to award-winning playwright Martin McDonagh (Pillowman, In Bruges). Mature audiences only. Strong language.

A Little Party Never Killed Nobody

In cabaret style, be plunged into a world of red hot jazz, bootleg liquor and more than a little scandal. Based on the classic book by F.

Caught up in the lavish and improbable world of a man named Gatsby, Nick’s cousin Daisy, and her philandering husband Tom, Nick bears witness to their illusions, deceits and the wreckage they leave in their wake - spinning a tale of impossible love, dreams, and tragedy. According to the London Free Press, this sweeping show is “beautifully crafted…indeed a grand Gatsby.”

A Black Curtain Reader's Theatre

MAY 5 & 6, 2018 @ 7:30 PM

The Great Gatsby
A Romance with Infinite Possibilities

Breathlessly navigating through the romantic journey of being in love, Constellations takes a chance encounter between two lost souls and opens the door to the infinite possibilities of their relationship, looking at how the tiniest change in the details of their lives can lead them on completely different paths. Nick Payne’s spellbinding play begins with a simple meeting at a party between physicist Marianne and beekeeper Roland. They hit it off… or perhaps they don’t. One of them is married… or maybe they’re both single. With brilliant writing by one of the most gifted dramatists of a new generation, Constellations looks at the boundless potential of a connection between two people and the difference between choice and destiny. Selected by the New York Times as one of the 10 Best Plays of 2015, they call this new play “sexy, sophisticated, gorgeous… this story of parallel universes is universal in every sense of the word.”

Th-Sun shows @ 7:30 PM

Urinetown the Musical
This show is G Rated for Goofiness, Guaranteed Fun, and Gratuitous Satire!

Winner of three Tony Awards and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a fast-paced, hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, corporate mismanagement, and musical theatre itself! In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must instead use public, pay-per-use amenities owned and operated by the malevolent corporation Urine Good Company or be sent to the dreaded and mysterious “Urinetown” if they don’t obey. Amid the people, a rebellious yet unsuspecting hero emerges to stage a revolt, fighting tooth and nail to win back the people’s most basic freedom. Despite the gutter-laced title, Urinetown catapults the “comedic romp” into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit, and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.
