PINOCCHIO

 

   

BEYOND THERAPY

The farcial comedy focuses on Prudence and Bruce, two Manhattanites who are seeking stable romantic relationships with the help of their psychiatrists, each of whom suggests the patient place a personal ad. Bruce is a highly emotional bisexual who tends to cry easily, a trait homophobic Prudence sees as a weakness. Their first meeting proves to be disastrous and the two report back to their respective therapists - libidinous Stuart, who once seduced Prudence, and eccentric Charlotte, who stumbles over the simplest of words, references the play Equus as a good source of advice, and interacts with Bruce and all her patients with the help of a stuffed Snoopy. Clearly the two are more troubled than their patients. Charlotte suggests a revised ad, which once again attracts Prudence, but this time she and Bruce manage to get past their initial loathing and discover they actually like each other. Complications ensue when Bruceís jealous live-in lover Bob decides to assert himself and do everything possible to maintain his status quo.

RENT

RENT, the Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning rock musical, has been referred to as both "the musical of a generation" and "the musical that changed Broadway." Set in the early 90ís and based loosely upon Pucciniís opera, La Boheme (with rock and Broadway roots that extend back to HAIR) RENT tells the story of a close knit group of friends struggling to survive in New Yorkís "Alphabet City" while coping with the angst brought about by love, artistic integrity, idealism and having to deal with the scourge of AIDS. Populated by an energetic and fantastic cast of characters that includes an avant-garde filmmaker, a brooding rock musician, a dazzling street musician/transvestite, an exotic dancer/performance artist and her Harvard educated lesbian lover, RENT rocks the mind, heart and soul with electric anthems ("La Vie Boheme") and heart rending ballads ("One Song/Glory"). Donít miss this talented young cast in a musical for EVERY generation.

ART

Art is a dazzling comedy about three men who tackle the questions of friendship, intellectual honesty, and of course, what is or isnít art. Serge (James Brady) has just bought an obscenely expensive modern painting composed of a series of white diagonal lines on a white background. Marc (Ron Genauer) canít understand the worth of the painting or the actions of his friend. With mediator Yvan (Michael Lojkovic), the three debate their interpretations of art, economics, friendship, the values of society, intimacy and human expectation. Their debate will shake the trioís 15-year relationship to the core.
