New York City Stage launched only two short weeks ago. So much has happened since then. Productions continue to open and close and we are reminded of the business behind the art with a production such as Sleep No More which is selling out as I write this entry while a production such as High is forced to close due to low ticket sales. However, playwrights, producers, and audiences are committed to the theater and good stuff awaits us all.
So, already lined up for May are the following.
- Knock Good People off my Hot List since the reviews have been consistently favorable.
- Take in The Dream of the Burning Boy after Reed Birney was nominated for a Drama League Award.
- Finish up the Tony Kushner season at the Signature Theatre Company with The Illusion. While I was completely engrossed in the revival of Angels in America, I could not connect with any of the characters in The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures. Let's see what happens with The Illusion.
- Sway to Million Dollar Quartet for no other reason than the fact that I like rock 'n' roll and it just looks like a good time.
