North To Maine: A Journey On The Appalachian Trail  The Beckmann Theatre at American Theatre of Actors (ATA),  July 16-August 3, 2014 , contributed by Paul Siebold / Off Off PR
Inspired by the playwrights own personal experiences while walking the full length of the Appalachian Trail, North To Maine is the first play ever written about this treasure of the American landscape and the thru-hikers who attempt to walk every one of its estimated 2,180 miles within a single season. The story follows five such thru-hikers as they travel north. Adam, a recent college graduate searching for purpose is joined by Kevin, a sagely former marine and Vietnam veteran; “Creature Man,” a young and judgmental entrepreneur who has lost his business (and maybe some of his mind); “Juice-Box,” a young schoolteacher who is one of the few women on the trail; and “Rock-Stabber,” a former marine/gear tester/jazz singer who has the unfortunate (and annoying) habit of constantly singing, especially late into the evenings when everyone else is trying to go to sleep. Note: North To Maine contains brief nudity.

Potion - A Play In Three Cocktails  PEOPLE Lounge (163 Allen Street between Stanton and Rivington). ,  EVERY SUNDAY @ PEOPLE LOUNGE EXTENDED THROUGH JUNE 15TH  , contributed by Emily Owens
To create the uniquely rhythmic text for Potion, Stolen Chair's playwright Kiran Rikhye dug deeply into the Italian libretti of the operas by Mozart, Verdi, Donizetti, and more. For each scene of Potion, Rikhye mapped out the meter, rhymes, repetitions, and simultaneity of an aria, duet, trio, or quartet to create a template for her own original text. The result is an intoxicating and incantatory verse play unlike any other, set to a genre-bending original score performed live by multi-instrumentalist Sean Cronin.

The Picture (Of Dorian Gray)  Venue #18: The Steve & Marie Sgouros Theatre,  August 12-24, 2014 , contributed by Paul Siebold / Off Off PR
Oscar Wilde’s notorious novella, The Picture of Dorian Gray, follows a young man’s pursuit of youth and pleasure. Admired and worshipped by an adoring artist who paints a portrait of him, the beautiful Dorian Gray gives his soul to remain forever young. Dorian then embarks on a journey of decadence and hedonism. The Gravity Partner’s physical, minimalist 21st century remix, The Picture (of Dorian Gray), smashes together Oscar Wilde’s novella with de Profundis, Wilde’s final letter to his lover from prison, as well as contemporary reflections and staging by the ensemble. De profundis recounts Wilde’s lifestyle of indulgence and the tumultuous relationship that led to his imprisonment. As such the production examines the blurry line between artist and art, our consumer consumption and objectification of youth, and the lust for individual pleasures. How far would you go to get everything you wanted?
