Pay-What-You-Can Shows

Here are a few upcoming Pay What You Can Shows. I live on these and am so grateful for them!

THEATER J presents
By Woody Allen
Directed by Steve Carpenter
Featuring Julie-Ann Elliott, Kathryn Kelley, Michael Kramer, John Lescault
and Vanessa Vaughn

June 25, 2005 - July 24, 2005

Uproarious, irreverent, and full of good old fashion raging vitriol, these
two never-before-paired plays call to mind Woody Allen's funniest cinematic
moments while suggesting an embrace of theater as Allen's new artistic home.
RIVERSIDE DRIVE presents a never-before-seen Allen creation; a derelict homeless
genius who challenges a compromised screenwriter's tenuous equipoise. In
CENTRAL PARK WEST, Allen's star-crossed couples hurl accusations and insults with
vengeful glee and liberating abandon. The perfect summer comedy for these
astringent times!

About the Play
The Caucasian Chalk Circle was Bertolt Brecht's last major work, written
while he was an exile in the U.S. during World War II. It's a parable; in this instance drawn from the. Biblical tale of the Judgment of Solomon and the old Chinese play "The Circle of Chalk". [snippet]

While full of song, broad comedy and highly dramatic moments, what we have is Brecht's use of emotional storytelling to set out the subtext of the effects of war on individual lives, personal responsibility, human choices in the face of profound difficulty and the paradoxes of life.
