Anna May Wong, The Actress Who Died a Thousand Deaths
Jan
31
to Feb 2

Anna May Wong, The Actress Who Died a Thousand Deaths

Synopsis: It is 1938. Hollywood star Anna May Wong has just returned to the US after a discouraging tour in China. Drinking herself into a stupor, Wong’s dreams transport her back to her time on the film set of “Daughter of the Dragon”, grappling with the constrictions placed upon her because of her race and sex. There, memories entwine with imagination, as she relives moments with key figures in her life. This dreamscape is an exploration of the tensions and unease of making it big as a Chinatown girl amidst a world not made to accommodate her. The Actress Who Died a Thousand Deaths utilizes ‘live cinema theater’ to both recreate and reimagine moments from Wong’s films and life; to subvert type-casted and Orientalist tropes of the original and offer a ‘re-framing’ on stage.

Anna May Wong, The Actress Who Died a Thousand Deaths is being presented as part of Mabou Mines’ performance initiative SUITE/Space.

Creator: Cinthia Chen
Director of Photography: Ben Haven Taylor
With: Michael Anderson, Nellie Blue, Rebecca Wei Hsieh, Elizabeth Sun, Matt Ting & Randall Trang

Funny Voices (or a thing i cannot name)

Synopsis: Lee and Leo are trying. They want This Thing To Work Out, they swear. Watch them test every conceivable answer to the equation: him + her + x = Love [solve for x] -- or die trying.

Well-acted and well-crafted... Lin and Racioppo entertain as they slide from character to character!

Wake Up Call
Dec
9
to Dec 18

Wake Up Call

Synopsis: In the midst of an unexpected double shift (on Christmas Eve, no less) a group of degenerate hotel employees stumble their way through an unusual night of service. It’s a “coming of age when you’re already of age” story. Sometimes it takes a miracle to grow the hell up. ke Up Call s an 90 minute contemporary play set in the lobby of a luxury boutique hotel in New York City. In the respect that hotels are transitional places for the guests, the same is true for the people that work there. Navigating through the misadventures of the evening, from outlandish guests to unpredictable coworkers, we follow their journey into adulthood. Sort of.

Racioppo is sharply funny, giving out a natural charm that never seems dickish, even when he screams at people parking in the “no parking zone” (some truly funny moments happen with him literally screaming at cars we can’t see and then ending with “Happy Holidays...”).
— The Arts Wire Weekly
The most stellar aspect of Wake Up Call is undoubtedly how well the writing meshes with the chemistry of the actors... Racioppo and Gebauer’s bromance is particularly engaging, with their “I like my women like I like my…” exchanges generating constant laughs.

With: Veronica Cooper, Chris Gebauer, Jory Murphy, Brian Reilly, and Jennifer Teska

to Nov 22

Untameable

There are things more important than love / Name them / Diamonds

Synopsis: There is a diamond as big as your fist, as heavy as your heart, and touring through Buenos Aires, Argentina. It's time to steal it. Or it's time to keep it safe. 

Pitting diamond heist against museum intrigue,Untameable follows the story of two young women: one trying to repatriate an old jewel and the other trying to keep old nemeses at bay. The audience is free to wander the space and pick which side of the story to follow.Untameable offers an immersive romp between a criminal den and a modern museum, where the audience, like the characters, must decide between love and diamonds, honesty and victory.  Untameable is an investigation into what we will do to achieve our magnum opus and what gets lost in the winning.

With moments of tension within the two factions, and freewill given to the audience, Untameable makes you question the tactics of viewing... a world of magic, mystery, and love; a world that one will want to experience over and over again.
— Stage Buddy
Multifaceted as diamonds and complex and daring as a heist, Untameable is an adventure well worth joining.

Director: Elana McKelahan
Playwright: Daria Miyeko Marinelli
With: Vicki Rodriguez, Denise Yolén, Irene Rivera, J Moliere, Annie-Sage Whitehurst, Stacy Salvette, Nancy Ellen Reinstein, Nikita Chaudhry and Ian F. Stewart
