At Colonels Row

Visit this event listing at the Governors Island website PLUS also visit the official website itself right here…

“”Jazz Age Lawn Party, now celebrating its 14th year, is the world’s original and largest prohibition era-inspired gathering. The event started in 2005 as a small gathering on NYC’s Governors Island and has since grown into one of New York City’s most beloved events. This historically sold out event attracts thousands of time travelers each year, who come together to discover the music and zeitgeist of the 1920s. Consistently selected by the New York Times as one of the year’s most memorable events, Jazz Age Lawn Party offers a unique, interactive opportunity to relive one of the most colorful and formative epochs in American history.””

Theater For The New City’s Tenth Annual Dream Up Festival @ Theater for the New City
Aug 25 – Sep 15 all-day

Theater For The New City Sets Its Tenth Annual Dream Up Festival

August 25 – September 15, 2019

All events at Theater for the New City, 155 First Ave. (at E. 10th Street)

NEW YORK, July 28 — From August 25 to September 15, 2019, Theater for the New City (TNC), under the direction of Crystal Field, Artistic Director, will present its tenth annual Dream Up Festival, a feast of adventurous theater mixing world premieres and New York premieres. It’s an ultimate new work festival dedicated to the joy of discovering new authors and edgy, innovative performances.

The Festival lineup follows below.

Helmed by the theater’s Literary Manager, Michael Scott-Price, the festival offers 27 plays. Audiences will savor the excitement, awe, passion, challenge and intrigue of new plays from around the country. There are two musicals, four plays on the African-American experience, two plays on pregnancy and motherhood, four plays of political content set in the dystopian future, two solo shows and two two-handers. A new translation is offered of Strindberg’s proto-Freudian masterpiece, “The Father.” Critics are invited to all stagings of all plays in the festival.

Theater for the New City has consistently been the most inexpensive theater of its caliber and it continues its commitment to affordable tickets with this festival. Dream Up Festival tickets are $12-$20 for the participating productions.

The festival does not seek out traditional scripts that are presented in a traditional way. It selects works that push new ideas to the forefront, challenge audience expectations and make us question our understanding of how art illuminates the world around us.

Michael Scott-Price (Curator/Festival Director) has directed in New York City at venues including Chashama, Dixon Place and Collective Unconscious. He has written and directed productions that were presented nationally as well as in Canada, Ireland and England. Currently, he is also Curator of TNC’s “New City, New Blood” reading series and “Scratch Night” (works-in-progress). He is Artistic Director of an experimental theater company, Asteroid B612 Theatre Company, which made its debut in the 17th Annual HERE American Living Room Series in August 2006. He has studied at the School of Physical Theatre in London, England, at the Odin Teatret in Hostelbro, Denmark and in the International School Theatre Anthropology (ISTA) in Wroclaw, Poland with Eugenio Barba and company. He is an alumnus of Lincoln Center Theater Director’s Lab. He is a member of the Board of Directors of Theater for the New City.

Theater for the New City (TNC) maintains a distinctive commitment to high artistic values and community service. In an effort to make theater accessible to all, TNC presents an assortment of distinct, exceptional events each year, including the Lower East Side Festival of the Arts, which celebrates the artistic and cultural diversity of TNC’s Lower East Side community; an annual Village Halloween Ball and an annual summer Street Theater tour that presents a free, live, original musical in thirteen neighborhoods in all five boroughs. Most of these are free of charge to the public.

Theater for the New City is located at 155 First Ave., at East 10th Street.

“THE ASSASSINATION OF J.KAISAAR, THE DESTRUCTION OF MARKO T AND KLEOPATRA AND THE RISE OF AUGUSTUS,” BY STEPHAN MORROW
September 9 at 9:00 PM, September 10 at 6:30, September 11 at 6:30 PM, September 12 at 9:00 PM, September 14 at 2:00 PM, September 15 at 8:00 PM (Johnson Theater)

Stephan Morrow set out to dramatize the unintended consequences of political assassination and out popped an epic fantasy, drawing on Plutarch, Shaw, Shakespeare and other sources. Since power struggles today so resemble Mafia wars, it’s somewhat like “The Sopranos” meets “Mad Max,” written in uber-contemporary language with vestiges of the Bard. The theme is that political assassination can have unintended consequences and should be considered as the least effective solution to political conflict if a free citizenry is valued above all else. The irony of history, you see, is that the democratic impulse to save the Roman republic by unseating Julius Caesar ushered in the age of Octavius, who governed so well that his system of authoritarianism lasted over 200 years, creating a heyday of empire.

An agoraphobic mass shooting survivor must choose between her shut-in lifestyle and a life where she can do more than survive with the development of her sister’s wedding, the return of her father’s terminal illness and her relationship with a mysterious man that she communicates with via a carrier pigeon.

Science nerd Jennifer Joy Pawlitschek uses chaos theory to envision what her alternate selves might have been: a Trump-voting farm wife, a liberal rural politician, an Evangelical homeschooling mom and a teen punk Antifa activist. Inspired in part by her own Trump-loving farm family, Jennifer reveals how America got to this point – and what’s next.

Is celebrity worship, in itself, Theater of the Ridiculous? “EEEEEEEEE,” written and directed by Emily Abrams, would have you think so. Emilia, Emily, Emmy and Eleanor belong to polyamorous cult that praises Ellen DeGeneres as its god, but are set on their collective heads when their idol rejects them. The piece, performed in Playhouse of the Ridiculous style, holds a mirror up to the crazyness we tolerate in TV culture and the celebrity racket..

The Dream Up Festival offers Robert Greer’s brand new translation of Strindberg’s 1887 tragedy, in which a wife uses her erotic influence over her doctor and her readiness to claim that her family lawyer is her child’s father to drive her husband into madness. The play offers a proto-Freudian explanation of the unreasonable hatred that can exist between husbands and wives. Greer’s translation mines the hidden sexual meanings in the original Swedish dialogue (bowdlerized in many translations) that seem to drive the play.

In a dystopian future, a struggling couple with some uncomfortable secrets are visited by Whip, a senior government case officer for the newly minted Department of Personal Responsibility and Rectitude, who is charged with helping them get their financial troubles in order. Whip, an Asian-American with an English accent, is not the devoted, squeaky clean official that he’s cracked up to be. This black comedy/psychological thriller explores tyranny and oppression using dark humor and thriller aspects, satirizing how our ideal of government by, of and for the people is all too often just an empty slogan.

The event started in 2005 as a small gathering on NYC’s Governors Island and has since grown into one of New York City’s most beloved events. This historically sold out event attracts thousands of time travelers each year, who come together to discover the music and zeitgeist of the 1920s. Consistently selected by the New York Times as one of the year’s most memorable events, Jazz Age Lawn Party offers a unique, interactive opportunity to relive one of the most colorful and formative epochs in American history.””

The Shops At Columbus Circle Presents: Clean Beauty

Wednesdays in August

They say if you can make it here (in New York), you can make it anywhere; but first, you have to learn to deal with the stress, pressure, eating on the run and taking care of yourself. It’s that last part – the taking care of yourself, that’s not so easy when you are in a city that’s 24/7/365.

That’s why The Shops at Columbus Circle is continuing its 360 Wellness Series, a three-month program which will offer free, exclusive classes and offers covering the topics such as the importance of movement, why clean beauty matters and how you can be a more conscious shopper.

Throughout the month of August, The Shops at Columbus Circle will focus on educating visitors on a variety of clean beauty topics. Each Wednesday in August, visitors can visit the Clean Beauty Bar Pop-Up from 12 – 4 p.m. to enjoy experiences, demos, and activations around the following topics:

August 7: Vegan Beauty Effect

August 14: Only Good Hair Days

August 21: Beauty at Any Age

August 28: Face Masks and Aromatics
