Monday Night Series

In addition to our Broadway Series, we have Monday night events for families and for adults.

September 18, 2017, 8 PM: Reading of Heisenberg by Simon Stephens
Plays Under Consideration Reading Series: While the plays in this series were not selected for the upcoming 2018 season they were in the running and we’re excited to bring them to our audiences in other form. Plays are meant to be heard – These readings give us that special perspective.
Amidst the bustle of a crowded London train station, Georgie, a 42-year-old woman, spots Alex, a much older man, and plants a kiss on his neck. This electric encounter thrusts these two strangers into a fascinating and life-changing game. Simon Stephens’ sharply original Heisenberg brings to blazing, theatrical life the uncertain and often comical sparring match that is human connection.
This event is PAY-WHAT-YOU-WISH.

Plays Under Consideration Reading Series: While the plays in this series were not selected for the upcoming 2018 season they were in the running and we’re excited to bring them to our audiences in other form. Plays are meant to be heard – These readings give us that special perspective.
A husband and wife, both psychiatrists, are each having an affair with a patient of the other who are also husband and wife! One patient is struggling to overcome her inability to have sex in bed and her compulsion to buy lawn mowers at Bloomingdale’s. Her doctor would rather ridicule mental illness and make social engagements than listen to her babble on. The other patient, an artist, is desperate for recognition; whereas his psychiatrist is unduly worried that latent bed wetters might ruin the couch.
