HOBOKEN’S MST PRESENTS FREE READINGS OF NJ WOMEN PLAYWRIGHTS

Mile Square Theatre presents the

MST PLAYGROUND READING SERIES

Mile Square Theatre, Hudson County’s leading professional theatre, launches the MST Playground Reading Series as part of a collaboration with Writers Theatre of NJ and its New Plays New Jersey concert reading series.

In February MST Playground Reading Series presents Readings of NJ Women Playwrights. The featured writers are Lia Romeo (February 4), Deb Margolin (February 12), and Kara Shelton (February 19).

Joseph Gallo, Mile Square Theatre’s playwright in residence says, “MST is committing time and energy now to nurture and develop playwrights as part of our mission. My latest play Long Gone Daddy was given a full development process, and then was produced as part of the company’s mainstage season in 2016. This year we are teaming up with John Pietrowski of Writers Theatre of NJ by hosting the New Plays New Jersey series. We plan to continue offering readings to our audiences and giving playwrights a platform for their work in development. We are also premiering Erin Mallon’s play The Net Will Appear in our Mainstage season in 2017. It’s exciting to see so much work being launched from our new space.”

MST Playground: Readings of NJ Women Playwrights Schedule:

Ghost Story
by Lia Romeo
WHEN: February 4 @ 8:30pm
WHERE: Mile Square Theatre • 1400 Clinton • Hoboken, NJ
ADMISSION: FREE

Lydia just wants a one-night stand, so she’s met a guy at a bar and brought him back to her new apartment.  But now things keep getting in the way.  Like the fact that they could hardly be more different – she’s forty, he’s twenty-eight; she’s black, he’s white; she’s a New Yorker and he’s from the Midwest. And the fact that he’s actually hoping for something more. And the fact that her new apartment might very well be haunted. A play about ghosts— both literal and metaphorical —and the ways we try to move forward.

What Difference Does It Make?
by Deb Margolin
WHEN: February 12 @ 6pm
WHERE:
Mile Square Theatre • 1400 Clinton • Hoboken, NJ
ADMISSION: FREE

Myrtle Schmidt is a top-notch attorney and pastry chef, solving cases on the phone while whipping up exotic confections in the Telephonocracy of Ding A Ling A Ling Land. Her long-suffering husband, Arnold, will do anything—anything—for just a moment of her precious time.  But Myrtle is so worried about being forgotten by the author who gives her life, she cannot pull away from her various pursuits, or her favorite Soap Opera—Marion’s Mistake, sponsored by KORO Feminine Deodorant-- until it may be too late.

The Prodigal
by Kara Shelton
WHEN: February 19 @ 6pm
WHERE:
Mile Square Theatre • 1400 Clinton • Hoboken, NJ
ADMISSION: FREE

Two brothers raised in the inner city, Glen and Walter, could not be further apart.  Glen, a carpenter, stayed close to his roots, never leaving the city, or the mindset that often comes along with it.  Walter, on the other hand, leaves home the moment he’s able, never looking back, and starts a new “white-washed” kind of life, complete with his new white wife Grace.  The only thing that could ever bring him back home is the death of his father.   When this happens, the collision of these two brothers and these two worlds, causes an impact that no one was prepared for.  Views are challenged on both sides, lives are altered, and everyone is permanently changed.

REVIEW: FAST-PACED, SPOOKY GOTHIC THRILLER THE PERFECT ANTIDOTE TO COLD WEATHER AND CHAOS

By Ruth Ross

Have You for Dessert

Well, this has been an interesting week. We learned that there are objective, verifiable facts, and then there are alternative facts. We have learned that some people live in a real world, while others reside in fantasy land. Sometimes, we may not be able to discern which is which. (Above L-R: Katrina Klein, Erin Farrah, Molly Garner, Jessica Sroczynski, Gloria Lamoureaux and Clark Carmichael

No, I am not talking about Donald Trump’s first week as President of the United States. This is the dilemma facing Police Inspector Ruffing in Don Nigro’s Gothic thriller, Ravenscroft, when he comes out, in the midst of a raging snow storm, to an isolated manse in rural England to investigate the headlong death plunge of Patrick Roarke, the estate’s footman—and, it seems, Lothario!

Part parody, part sleuth-style mystery, this Gothic thriller, now onstage in a charmingly twisted production at the Bickford Theatre, has been updated with a psychological slant. Despite the fact that there are enough red herrings for a fish hatchery and the final explanation is almost as complicated as the investigation, this rendition of Ravenscroft manages to retain the creepiness of a remote estate, the coincidence that Patrick is not the only male to meet his demise on the steps, Ruffing’s fixation on his dead wife and weirdness of the female characters—on an evocative set designed by Jim Bazewicz and eerily lit by Roman Klima. Eric Hafen’s sure directorial hand is evident as the action hums along inexorably to keep the audience’s attention from flagging, especially in the rather long second act.

Now LadiesWithout giving away too much, suffice it to say that Patrick has fallen to his death after being pushed away by the beautiful governess Marcy Kleiner in the midst of an altercation when she spurned his sexual advances. Inspector Ruffing, full of Victorian male preconceptions about woman, accuses Marcy of murder, only to have that supposition turned on its head by the alternatively clashing accounts of the accident by a dithering Mrs. Ravenscroft, her ditsy daughter Gillian, the hysterical maid Dolly and the stoic cook Mrs. French. While the solution is almost too complex to parse, we are left with the notion that the truth, indeed, is often fluid and based on perception. (Left: Gloria Lamoureaux, Clark Carmichael and Jessica Sroczynski)

Hafen has assembled a truly professional cast for this melodrama. Clark Carmichael is masterful as Inspector Ruffing, adrift in a sea of prevaricating women as he attempts to conduct a professional investigation. Officious, pompous in Act I, Carmichael becomes looser in the second act as he continuously imbibes brandy, stumbling and slurring his speech a bit while trying to maintain some dignity. As Mrs. Ravenscroft, Molly Garner deliciously conveys a character given to misunderstanding words and ideas (a la Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s Mrs. Malaprop); she’s alternately loopy and conniving. One wonders if her dippiness isn’t calculated. (Below: Clark Carmichael attempts to get the truth from Mrs. French and Mrs. Ravenscroft, played by Gloria Lamoureaux and Molly Garner, respectively.)

I Did

Erin Farrah’s Gillian is true child-woman, skipping around the room, giggling incessantly, yet smart enough to try to butter up Ruffing by asking personal questions. Maddeningly immature, she is still a force to be reckoned with as the women make Ruffing’s head spin. As Mrs. French, Gloria Lamoureaux is a stolid, stoic, sober servant, yet we sense by her guarded mien that she’s hiding something. And Jessica Sroczynski is terrific as Dolly, always on the verge of throwing up yet petrified of crossing her mistress or the detective.

Last but not least (and perhaps most important), Katrina Klein is superb as the intelligent, cool governess Marcy Kleiner. Although her Viennese accent unconvincingly wavers, Kleiner conveys the young woman’s steeliness and resolve, from the very first scene when she answers Ruffing’s questions with questions of her own, taking the reins of the investigation into her own hands. Despite his attempts to trip her up, she stubbornly sticks to her story, so that we really come to care about this foreign woman, accused by a powerful man of murder (without any facts) and forced to defend herself by her wits alone.

Hafen has staged the play in a novel way. When the characters are not involved in the action, they sit on stools at the back of the stage, so they are always there, even when they are not needed. The hanging, empty frames convey both the ancestry of the Ravencrofts as well as the emptiness of their existence in a remote area of England. Kaitlyn Frega’s costume selection (provided by Scaramouche Costumes) conveys the characters’ station as well as the late Victorian period; Dani Pietrowski’s props add to the impression. Stacks of books, a settee, an ornate desk transport us to the estate’s salon. And Andrew Elliott’s sound design adds to the play’s spookiness.

Fast-paced Ravenscroft is great fun, especially as the audience tries to figure out just what happened before Ruffing does—especially given his tipsiness as the investigation proceeds. If you enjoy whodunits and costume dramas with a twist of lime, Ravenscroft’s just the ticket on a cold winter night. The alternative facts and fantastical reality will not only make your head spin but give you a few laughs needed in these “interesting times.”

Ravenscroft will be performed at the Bickford Theatre in the Morris Museum, 6 Normandy Heights Ave., Morristown, through February 12. For information, performance times and tickets, call the box office at 973.971.3706 or visit www.morrismuseum.org online.

EVENING OF SHORT PLAYS & IMPROV CLASSES @ DREAMCATCHER REP IN SUMMIT

This evening, which will include readings of nine short plays followed by an open discussion with the audience and light refreshments, originated from a number of questions being asked by the artistic community in the last several months. Artistic Director Laura Ekstrand observed, "The inspiration for this project in part came from the response to the statement the "Hamilton" cast read from the stage. It raises the question of how we as a society view the theatre and the people who make it as participants in this society. I was also interested in discovering how the artists we know were processing and participating in the dialogue happening in our country surrounding the election."

The plays range from comedy to drama to musical, and each is unique. Participating playwrights include Michael Aquino and Dania Ramos (Mi Casa Tu Casa), Nadine Bernard (In the Shadow of My Son), Suzanne Bradbeer (Shakespeare in Vegas), Richard Dresser (Rounding Third), Steve Harper (American Crime), David Lee White (Blood: A Comedy), David Meyers (We Will Not Be Silent), and Lia Romeo (Connected). Twenty-five actors will read the plays before the audience is invited to join in the conversation.

Critics have praised the Don Nigro play as “written at the three-way intersection of Monty Python, Agatha Christie and Downton Abby.” Directed by Bickford Theatre Producing Artistic Director Eric Hafen, Ravenscroft is a production of the Morris Museum and Drew University.

The puzzler begins simply enough. On a snowy night, Inspector Ruffing is called to a remote house to investigate the headlong plunge of Patrick Roarke down the main staircase. Five alluring and dangerous women hold all the cards and all the answers: Marcy, the beautiful Viennese governess; Mrs. Ravenscroft, the flirtatious lady of the manor; Gillian, her charming but possibly demented daughter; Mrs. French, the formidable and passionate cook, and Dolly, a terrified maid. Ghosts on the staircase and skeletons in the closet intensify this psychological comic thriller with a twist. The suspense and laughter build to an uproariously chaotic conclusion.

Leading the cast of English oddballs is Inspector Ruffing played by Clark Carmichael of Montclair who most recently appeared on Broadway in Jumpers. Molly Garner of Bloomfield plays the hilariously wacky Mrs. Ravenscroft, Katrina Klein of New York City takes the role of Marcy, and Gloria Lamoureux of Succasunna plays Mrs. French. The production includes Drew University students Erin Farrah of Fayetteville, Arkansas as the often confused daughter Gillian and Jessica Sroczynski of Bayonne as Dolly.
“Combined with the thrill of a mystery, the laughter of a comedy, and the theatricality of its unique staging, Ravenscroft will play out in your mind as it does in the mind of our Inspector Ruffing,” says Director Eric Hafen. “We are pleased to bring this always popular show to the Bickford Theatre.” (Above: L-R Molly Garner, Erin Farrah, Clark Carmichael, Katrina Klein, Gloria Lamoureux, Jessica Sroczynski.

Ravenscroft is a delightfully unreliable murder mystery that will keep you guessing to the end. Who pushed Patrick Roarke down the stairs? You can be sure of two things: It wasn’t Colonial Mustard with a Candlestick. And you’ll be glad you didn’t miss the fun!

The Morris Museum’s Bickford Theatre is located at 6 Normandy Heights Road in Morristown, NJ, and offers free parking and full accessibility. Box office hours for phone sales are Monday through Friday, 10:00am to 5:00pm. Walk-up hours are Tuesday through Friday, 11:00am to 5:00pm.

TRANSGRESSIVE “HAMLET” FOR CURRENT ERA OPENS IN JERSEY CITY THIS WEEKEND

Shakespeare's
HAMLET

by Javier Antonio Gonzalez & David Skeist

WHEN: January 26 – 29; includes double Feature on the 28th*
WHERE:
Jersey City Theater Center, Merseles Studios, 339 Newark Avenue, Jersey City, NJ 07302

It is bitter cold. Rank corruption festers at the center of power, indulging in excess while war looms on the horizon. Denmark is a prison, and for Hamlet there is no way out but through murder, suicide, or madness.  Don't miss this engaging adaptation of Shakespeare's Hamlet.

For its first show of the New Year, Jersey City Theater Center (JCTC) presents a subversive retelling of a classic play for contemporary audiences.

Caborca’s Hamlet is a multimedia and multicultural reimagining of Shakespeare timeless drama that will dispel any notions that the Tragedy of the Prince of Denmark belongs stuck in some forgotten High School English Class. As a new political era dawns in the United States and the world, this innovative and experimental theater company makes Hamlet’s themes of revenge, deception and political upheaval disturbingly relevant.

“At this politically disorienting moment, Hamlet’s world feels eerily close,” said Javier Antonio González, Artistic Director of Caborca.

González, a writer and director, started working with the actors and other artists who would eventually become Caborca in 2002 at the University of Puerto Rico. After completing Columbia’s MFA Theatre Program, Caborca (the name comes from The Savage Detectives, a novel by Roberto Bolaño) officially became a company in 2009. Since then, Caborca has produced work in New York, Puerto Rico, Los Angeles, and Massachusetts, receiving critical acclaim and a growing audience following.

“We are particularly proud of having made work over the years in less artistically saturated areas around the city—south Brooklyn, The Bronx—and we are thrilled to add Jersey City to that list,” said David Skeist, Actor and Producing Director of Caborca,

Hamlet is the first Caborca production in New Jersey.

The Hamlet collaboration with JCTC began with a 2016 meeting with Olga Levina, artistic director of JCTC and González. Both JCTC and Caborca share a mission of using progressive theater to tackle the issues of our times, and Caborca was soon part of JCTC’s Theatre Residency program and over the course of several months, developed a unique Hamlet that reflected the anxiety ridden atmosphere created by the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election.

Shakespeare’s text is kept mostly intact, but Caborca’s production features out-of-sequence scenes and nontraditional casting – both Hamlet and his revenge-obsessed Ghost Dad are played by women! This Hamlet is a site-specific production, where the venue is nearly another character in the dark tale. Caborca has transformed the black box theater at Merseles Studios into a creepily surrealistic Elsinore Castle that enhances an immersive audience experience. For the overall design and staging, Caborca used as inspiration a 1975 European “classic” comic book adaptation of Hamlet by Gianni De Luca, the Italian fumetti maestro.

The end result suggests unmistakable parallels between current-day America and Hamlet’s Denmark, “Corruption festers at the center of power, indulging in excess while war looms on the horizon,” states the Caborca Production Notes. “Denmark is a prison, and for Hamlet there is no way out but through murder, suicide, or madness.”

“Audiences will be seeing Hamlet in a completely different format,” said Olga Levina. “With women’s rights suddenly threatened again, the fact a woman is cast as Hamlet is a powerful statement. With what is going on politically, there is a feeling of a dark cloud over us. What better play than Hamlet to express these feelings so many of us share now. Caborca is a theater company with a vision, one of maybe a handful of up-and-coming companies willing to take risks. They’ve made a Hamlet for the times we are living through now.”

4-FILM SERIES TO BEGIN FEBRUARY 5 @ SOPAC

SOPAC South Orange Performing Arts Center

New at SOPAC

La Cinémathèque Film Club:
An Homage To Alain Resnais & John Cassavetes

WHEN: 4-FILM SERIES BEGINS SUN, FEB 5, at 2PM
WHERE:
SOPAC, One SOPAC Way, South Orange (behind train station)
ADMISSION: Film Club Membership is $60 for 4 Film Screenings

Box Office: (973) 313-2787

This Film Club series is an homage to two of the greatest creative spirits in cinema. The first, Alain Resnais, was a French film director whose career extended over more than six decades. His films frequently explore the relationship between consciousness, memory, and the imagination, and he was noted for devising innovative formal structures for his narratives. Throughout his career, he won many awards from international film festivals and academies.

The second director, American John Cassavetes, was also an actor and screenwriter. Cassavetes was a pioneer of American independent film, writing and directing over a dozen movies, which he partially self-financed, and pioneered the use of improvisation and a realistic cinéma vérité style.

FEB 5  |  Hiroshima My Love (1959)
Alain Resnais’ debut feature still feels like a work of striking originality. Set in the city of Hiroshima, the film tells the story of a brief affair between a French actress and a Japanese architect, both of whom are haunted by events that took place years before during the war.

APR 9 My American Uncle (1980)
In this film by Alain Resnais, Professor Henri Laborit uses the stories of three people to discuss behaviorist theories of survival, combat, rewards, punishment, and anxiety. René is a technical manager at a textile factory and must face the anxiety caused by corporate downsizing. Janine is a self-educated actress/stylist who learns that the wife of her lover is dying and must decide to let them reunite. Jean is a controversial career-climbing writer/politician at a crossroads in life. From 5–6PM on April 9, the two Alain Resnais films will be compared and the Film Club will discuss the creative process of the director and his message.

MAY 21  |  Faces (1968)
The John Cassavetes film entitled Faces confronts modern alienation and the battle of the sexes with a brutal honesty and compassion rarely matched in cinema.

JUN 25  | A Woman Under The Influence (1974)
This devastating drama by John Cassavetes details the emotional breakdown of a suburban housewife and her family’s struggle to save her from herself. This is one of the benchmark films of American independent cinema. From 5-6PM on June 25 the Film Club will compare the two films, the creative process of the director and his message.

Gerard Amsellem
Gerard Amsellem is a French and American citizen. He spent the first 25 years of his life in Paris, France where he studied painting at the University of Paris and earned his Masters Degree in French Literature and Art History. In 1982, Gerard moved to the U.S. and continued to paint and develop his interest in film. His paintings have been exhibited abroad in Paris and locally at GAS Gallery & Studio and at 1978 Maplewood Arts Center. Gerard has been studying film throughout his life. He currently teaches World Film at Livingston High School and has directed several short films. Gerard’s special interests lie in foreign and independent films from all over the world.

Nelly

Ladies Night With Nelly!

WHERE:
NJPAC Prudential Hall, 1 Center St., Newark
TICKETS: $59 - $99
CODE: 20OFF
20% off all seats. Valid until 1/23 at 11pm.*

GRAMMY-winning rapper, singer and songwriter Nelly arrives with this one-of-a-kind concert experience—a genre-busting event that lends a symphonic twist to his greatest hits, including “Hot in Herre,” “Just a Dream” and “Country Grammar.”

Though his albums have sold more than 21 million copies in the U.S. alone, you’ve never before heard Nelly's music quite like this! When he debuted A Night of Symphonic Hip Hop last summer, backed by his six-piece band as well as the Columbus Symphony, music critic Lynn Green of The Columbus Dispatch wrote that the event was “a surprise winner.”

“Combining (hip hop and symphonic music) is a bold move,” she wrote. “But does it actually work? The answer is yes. Nelly's songs and delivery are so catchy, they hold their own against a stage full of musicians … (this fusion) definitely has the potential to draw these genres of music, and their audiences, closer together.”

Here is a look at one of Nelly's most popular songs! (Click here)
