A theater company most terrible is about to stage a murder most foul … no good can come of this. Actually, these wannabe thespians will be lucky to make it through opening night without some real corpses stacking up, because this is The Play That Goes Wrong. And boy, does it. But what’s a chaotic series of mishaps for them makes for “the funniest play Broadway has ever seen” (Huffington Post) and proof that sometimes a show can be so wrong, it’s right. Broadway’s most award-winningest comedy, The Play That Goes Wrong has racked up more laurels than Caesar, conquering stages from Paris to London to Broadway, and now it’s returning to wreak hilarious havoc on New World Stages. See for yourself why Forbes said, “You’ll never have a better time in a theater!”

It’s a magical blend of coordination, showmanship, humor and interactive storytelling. It’s a comedy show that brings people together in a respectfully dirty, unpredictably ridiculous and oddly touching celebration of sexual freedom and expression. It’s the funniest thing you ever saw that night at that place with those people. It’s in-your-face, in-your-front, in-your-back honesty for the whole world to see. Entering its 11th year as a nationally touring roadshow, Air Sex is the world’s first SPART – a combination of sports and art. Each Air Sex show combines the pageantry and prestige of professional sports with the excitement and creativity of a first-rate talent competition. Think Air Guitar, but instead of pretending to play boring old musical instruments, Air Sex participants have jaw-dropping sexual encounters with an invisible partner (or partners!) using nothing more than the art of pelvic storytelling and pure imagination. Beyond that, it’s a show you’ll have to experience yourself to believe. From city to city, “airsexuals” of all ages, races, body types, and gender identifications are welcome to sign up and become part of the bizarre spectacle. Throughout every show, a panel of judges provides hilarious feedback after each performance, ensuring that even the worst Air Sex routine makes for a solidly entertaining time. Air Sex is coming to The Cutting Room in New York. Will you be a thrilled spectator or a thrilling competitor?

The Center at West Park presents a Room15 production Misterman by Enda Walsh, directed by Graydon Gund with Alex Montaldo as Thomas Magill. Enda Walsh’s play Misterman, written for a solo performer, is a study of one man’s descent into religious mania in small-town Ireland. The play’s action is set in ‘an abandoned depot/dilapidated factory’ in Inishfree, where loner Thomas Magill lives out his days, interacting with the people of the town via tape-recordings he has made of their voices, or by impersonating them himself. He is convinced that it’s up to him to save the sinful place, but his deranged mental state leads to dire consequences for him and the town.

Japan has produced an impressive assemblage of jazz pianists, from Toshiko Akiyoshi and Makoto Ozone to Junko Onishi. And now, well into the change of the 21st century, the pianist/composer Hiromi Uehara is the latest in that line of amazing musicians. Ever since the 2003 release of her debut Telarc CD, Another Mind, Hiromi has electrified audiences and critics east and west, with a creative energy that encompasses and eclipses the boundaries of jazz, classical and pop parameters, taking improvisation and composition to new heights of complexity and sophistication. Her new CD, Alive, her ninth as a leader, features her critically-acclaimed Trio Project, consisting of contrabass guitarist Anthony Jackson (Steely Dan, Paul Simon, Michel Camilo, The O’Jays and Chick Corea) and drummer Simon Phillips (Toto, The Who, Judas Priest, David Gilmour, and Jack Bruce). At 26, Hiromi stands at the threshold of limitless possibility, constantly drawing inspiration from virtually everyone and everything around her. Her list of influences, like her music itself, is boundless. “I love Bach, I love Oscar Peterson, I love Franz Liszt, I love Ahmad Jamal,” she says. “I also love people like Sly and the Family Stone, Dream Theatre and King Crimson. Also, I’m so much inspired by sports players like Carl Lewis and Michael Jordan. Basically, I’m inspired by anyone who has big, big energy. They really come straight to my heart.” But she won’t, as a matter of principle, put labels on her music. She’ll continue to follow whatever moves her, and leave the definitions to others.

After over 500 years, the two greatest minds and artists of the Renaissance will make their New York stage debut in DaVinci & Michelangelo: The Titans Experience. First conceived as exhibitions of creations from the mind of Leonardo Da Vinci and the masterworks of Michelangelo, DaVinci & Michelangelo: The Titans Experience is a one-of-a-kind, multimedia production that brings the works of these two Renaissance men into a brand-new, contemporary light. In the DaVinci & Michelangelo: The Titans Experience, audiences take an awe-inspiring journey through the Italian Renaissance, led by creator Mark Rodgers, experiencing the world and its possibilities through the eyes of these two monumental geniuses. “__DaVinci & Michelangelo__ has something that everyone can relate to,” says Rodgers. “The impact of everything they said and did can be found in our lives today.” Through exploration of their inventions, machines, sketches, paintings, and sculptures, Rodgers connects the immortal work of DaVinci & Michelangelo to modern day geniuses, such as Les Paul, Van Cliburn, and Paul McCartney, and encourages audiences to discover their own “inner” DaVinci and Michelangelo.

Ruth Stage is thrilled to present a chilling new take on Tennessee Williams’ seminal play The Glass Menagerie, directed by Austin Pendleton and Peter Bloch. After two critically acclaimed runs in 2018 of Wars of the Roses, directors Austin Pendleton and Peter Bloch reunite with actor Matt de Rogatis to take on the American classic, The Glass Menagerie. In this disquieting production, the tormented Tom (de Rogatis) relives the story of his time in the Wingfields’ St. Louis apartment, circa 1939, as if he were remembering it through the lens of a spooky dream. The cast, led by Ginger Grace as the iconic Amanda Wingfield, consists of Matt de Rogatis as her son Tom Wingfield, Alexandra Rose as Laura Wingfield, and Spencer Scott as The Gentleman Caller. Set designer Jessie Bonaventure, who was the assistant set designer on the Broadway musical Hadestown, which garnered four Tony Awards, including Best Scenic Design, collaborates with lighting designer Steven Wolf to create a version of this Tennessee Williams masterpiece that borders on horror. Dimly lit and surrealistic, the set itself will consist of props made of glass and the actors will live in a chilling, dreamlike world. Taking inspiration from the The Exorcist soundtrack, Sean Haggerty writes the score for this Wes Craven meets Tennessee Williams production. Allison Hohman designs the sound for the Wingfield house of horrors.

There are more World War II stories than you can count, but Black Angels Over Tuskegee tells a story you won’t see in most of them. It’s the ultimate underdog tale, the journey of six trailblazing black men who want to fly. At the time, the military was segregated, and the brave black pilots and their support team that became known as the Tuskegee Airmen faced not only the dangers of war but also racial discrimination from within and outside the military. Black Angels Over Tuskegee, now at St. Luke’s Theatre, tells the true story of six men attempting to become Tuskegee Airmen. The play explores their collective struggle with Jim Crow laws, their intelligence, their patriotism, their dreams of an inclusive fair society and the brotherhood they found in each other as they persevered — and excelled — in the face of the enormous obstacles acting against them.
