Adam's Call: Michael Raver's "Fire on Babylon": The Heat is On: Michael Raver is a rising playwright everyone should have their eye on! His new play, "Fire on Babylon," which is in the Fresh Fruit Festival, is HOT! In fact, it's scalding with twists & turns that kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the whole play. With only two performances left (July 15th & 17th), I suggest you get there before the lights go out forever on this run! "Fire on Babylon" plays at The Wild Project in NYC's East Village!
Adam's Call: Charles Busch: "The Ultimate Playlist" at Feinstein's/54 Below: An Evening Filled with Laughter, Smiles, and a Walk Down Memory Lane. Charles has a way of captivating the audience with his stories. Whenever he tells a story, it feels as though we are seated in his living room around his fire place. I also enjoyed Charles' varied set list. This show made me so happy and I can't wait for Charles' next engagement at Feinstein's/54 Below!
Adam's Call: "Empanada Loca" A recipe for success: Aaron Mark's "Empanada Loca," written for and starring two-time Tony Award nominee Daphne Rubin-Vega, is another must see show! From the moment the lights went out & the rumbles of the subway train were heard, I was taken into "Dolores'" world & was kept there the whole time which is a testament to the powerful performance Daphne is giving in this show as well as to Aaron's writing! "Empanada Loca," presented by Labyrinth Theater Company, runs thru Nov. 8 at The Bank Street Theater in NYC!
Adam's Call: JANKA: A-20398: I Say See It! There is a powerful new Off-Broadway show happening in NYC entitled JANKA: A-20398 written by playwright Oscar Speace and starring Janice Noga. This show recounts Oscar's mom's liberation and time spent in the Nazi concentration camps. While most people will say I don't want to see a show like this, I say, see it!
Adam's Call: Barry Levey's "Hoaxocaust" is a compelling, thought-provoking, emotional, can't stop thinking about, how will I sleep tonight one-man show about those who deny that The Holocaust ever happened.
Adam's Call: Twenty years ago, David Drake won an OBIE Award for his one-man show The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me, and twenty years later his show still holds the test of time.
RUN, RUN, RUN to Myra Slotnick's The Weight of Water, a brand new, original, poignant, rich, and beautiful play about survival, choices, pride, and finding home set in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Playing at The Producers' Club - Crown Theatre in NYC through May 16 only!
Review: Jeff Seabaugh's "We Crazy, Right?": With a lot of heart, humor, and love, "We Crazy, Right?" is a very moving and timely show with a universal message about family as we know it today. This is definitely one of the NYC Fringe shows to go see!
Review: "As Wide As I Can See": Mark Snyder is definitely one playwright to keep your eye on! I attended his new play "As Wide As I Can See" at HERE Arts Center. "As Wide As I Can See" is well worth the view. Set in a recession-stricken Ohio where jobs are scarce, dreams are shattered, but held onto, friendships are tested, the past comes back in a haunting way, and future wishes light up the sky, "As Wide As I Can See" tells many people's life story. This is one play that held my attention from beginning to end. If you are looking for something fresh, Mark Snyder's "As Wide As I Can See" is definitely a play to go see!
