Comedy writing team Marina Tempelsman and Niccolo Aeed’s new show Unpacking: A Ghost Story Told in the Dark opens its run at HERE tonight at 7:00 PM. I was a huge fan of last year’s Room 4, which also featured Unpacking star Temesgen Tocruray, and I couldn’t wait to see what was next from this hilarious and insightful writing team. Before opening night, I sat down with Marina and Nicco to discuss the show’s novel lighting design, developing an on-stage romance, and what scares them off-stage in the real world.
You On The Moors Now, which opened February 13 at HERE, is my favorite kind of weird theater. The play is a deconstruction of four of literature’s most famous women, Jane Eyre from Jane Eyre, Jo March from Little Women, Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice, and Catherine Earnshaw from Wuthering Heights. In the process, though, it brings on a full-blown battle of the sexes and breaks down harmful character types for men and women.
You On the Moors Now opened February 13 at HERE, located at 145 Sixth Avenue, and will run through February 28. Tickets are $18 and available at the box office, by phone at 212-352-3101, or online here. There will be post-show discussions on February 21 and 27.
You On The Moors Now is opening Friday, February 13, and whether if you are single, dating, or long-time committed relationship, there are a whole lot of reasons to check out Theatre Reconstruction Ensemble’s new show for Valentine’s Day!
