July 9, 2016 July 9, 2016

In 27 WAGONS FULL OF COTTON, after Jake, a shady, middle-aged cotton gin owner, burns down rival Silva Vicarro’s mill, Vicarro attempts to enact vengeance by seducing Flora, Jake’s delicate young wife. In 1976, Meryl Streep was honored with Outer Critics Circle and World Theater awards and Drama Desk and Tony nominations for her performance as Flora.

In KINGDOM OF EARTH, a flood is surging in the Mississippi Delta, and Chicken’s property is only safe until old man Sikes down the road dynamites his levee to save himself. While Chicken waits alone in his kitchen for the inevitable blast, he receives an unexpected visit from his dying half-brother, Lot, and Lot’s wife of but one day, Myrtle. Leaving Lot upstairs to rest, Chicken assesses Myrtle as a potential threat to his inheritance of the estate, currently under Lot’s name. Chicken and Myrtle find common ground but not even footing in their similar experiences of the inescapable hardness of the world – two “lost, sinful, puzzled” souls falling into a familiar power dynamic and bracing themselves as the waters rise. Estelle Parsons’s 1966 performance as Myrtle garnered a Tony nomination for Best Leading Actress.

Tennessee Williams’s work changed the landscape of American theater. This evening of his short plays will perform in the heart of the NY Theatre District, opening for the summer season.

The Production:

2 By Tennessee Williams

Executive Producers Roy Nevans and John Lant, in association with Edmund Gaynes, are pleased to present 2 By Tennessee Williams: 27 WAGONS FULL OF COTTON and KINGDOM OF EARTH, a limited engagement directed by Marilyn Fried and starring Kathryn Luce Garfunkel.

Featured in the cast are Anthony Alessandro, Jim Biberi and Mike Keller.

The creative team includes Liz Stearns (Associate Director), SKS Theatrical Marketing (Marketing and Promotions), Tim Secrest and John B. Forbes (Lighting Design), Hunter Dowell (Costume Design), Jessica and Jennifer Davison (Sound Design), and Meagan Parker (Set Design).

Tennessee Williams was an American playwright and author of many stage classics. Along with Eugene O’Neill and Arthur Miller he is considered among the three foremost playwrights in 20th-century American drama. After years of obscurity, he became suddenly famous with The Glass Menagerie (1944), closely reflecting his own unhappy family background. This heralded a string of successes, including A Streetcar Named Desire (1947), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1955), and Sweet Bird of Youth (1959). His drama Streetcar Named Desire is often numbered on the short list of the finest American plays of the 20th century alongside Long Day’s Journey into Night and Death of a Salesman. Much of Williams’ most acclaimed work was adapted for the cinema. He also wrote short stories, poetry, essays and a volume of memoirs. In 1979, four years before his death, Williams was inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame.

Best remembered for his portrayal of Plato alongside James Dean in the classic Rebel Without a Cause, Sal Mineo was a two-time Oscar-nominated actor, a gold record-selling pop singer and a trailblazing figure for gay rights before he was tragically murdered. After rocketing to stardom, Mineo became typecast and had trouble finding substantial roles. He was only starting to launch a comeback on stage when his life was cut short.

Now, writer-actor Dean Ghaffari brings Mineo’s complex character to life in his solo show The Sal Mineo Story: Rebel With a Cause at St. Luke’s Theatre.

at St. Luke’s Theatre

Opening Night Set for December 9th, 2015

Evelyn Rudie (“Eloise”) Directs the Off-Broadway Premiere of a New Play by Jerry Mayer

Off-Broadway premiere of Jerry Mayer’s new comedy, “2 Acrosswill begin a open-ended engagement on Saturday November 14th at St. Luke’s Theatre (308 West 46th Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues)

Emmy Award nominee Evelyn Rudie (“Eloise”) directs a cast that stars Andrea McArdle and Kip Gilman. Opening Night is set for December 9th.

Two strangers, a psychologist (Andrea McArdle) and an unemployed ad man (Kip Gilman) find themselves alone on a San Francisco commuter train at 4 a.m., each doing their New York Times crossword puzzles. But before their crosswords are solved, they find that they may have solved the puzzles of their own lives.

Andrea McArdle captured the hearts of theatergoers when she originated the title role in Annie, becoming the youngest performer nominated for a Tony® Award as Best Lead Actress in a Musical.  She received the Theater World and Outer Critics’ Circle Awards for her performance and went on to star as Annie on London’s West End. Coming full circle, Andrea appeared as “The Star to Be” in the TV production of “Annie.” In 2010, Andrea played, yes, Miss Hannigan at the North Carolina Theatre and Musical Theatre West. Andrea starred on Broadway in the Jerry Herman musical Jerry’s Girls alongside Carol Channing and Leslie Uggams; in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Starlight Express, as Margy Frake in State Fair, Fantine in Les Miserables, and Belle in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. She toured nationally as Sally Bowles in Cabaret, Eponine in Les Miserables and in The Vagina Monologues (also, Off-Broadway). Andrea continues to tour in the concert event, 4 Girls 4 with Maureen McGovern, Donna McKechnie and Faith Prince. In addition to “Annie,” Andrea’s film and TV credits include starring as Judy Garland in “Rainbow,” “All My Children,” “The Leading Ladies Of Broadway” on PBS, and headlining her own PBS special “Andrea McArdle On Broadway.”

Kip Gilman was recently acclaimed for his performances as Oscar Madison in the LA production of The Odd Couple as well as his starring turn in the long running hit Aspirins & Elephants. Lead roles in World Premieres include Catskill Sonata and Adam Baum and the Jew Movie, both directed by Paul Mazursky as well as American premieres Mutually Assured Destruction, Michael Weller’s What the Night Is For, and the Mark Taper Forum’s production of Stuff Happens by David Hare for which he received an Ovation award nomination. Mr. Gilman will soon be seen starring in the up-coming films Outlaws Don’t Get Funerals, the psychological thriller Painless and as a wacky scientist in the madcap comedy Big Baby. Also featured with Nick Nolte in the Taylor Hackford film Parker and Atlas Shrugged Part 2 with Samantha Mathis. Mr Gilman is familiar to television audiences as a series regular on “Studio 5B” with Jeffrey Tambor, “Nurses,” “Closeup News,” “Foot In The Door,” “Dorothy,” “Trapper John M.D.” and “Loves Me, Loves Me Not” with Susan Dey. Most recent guest appearances: “CSI Miami” and “Bones.” As a director and writer, Mr. Gilman has collaborated at the Los Angeles Theater Center, Ivy Sub Station and Highways performing his irreverent one-man musicals Men Women and Assassins and Mister Moody: 82 Minutes With Christ. He is presently in pre-production on the feature film Perfect Match for which he is writer-producer as well as one of its stars. His recent compilations of music, “No Miracles” and “Primitive Man” will be released later this year.

Jerry Mayer born and educated in St. Louis, Mo., has had an impressive career in television, writing and producing such prized shows as “M*A*S*H,” “The Bob Newhart Show,” “All in the Family,” “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “The Facts of Life” and five Mitzi Gaynor’s TV specials, plus her famous Las Vegas Act. Mr. Mayer thoroughly enjoyed his TV career but, has happily discovered that by far his first love is writing for the theatre. Five of his plays have been published by Samuel French, Inc. His award winning plays and musicals have appeared successfully in New York city four times (Off-Broadway) and in hundreds of theatres all over the US and Canada, as well as in Europe. Most of Mr. Mayer’s plays deal with the “ups, downs and sideways” of male/female relationships, for which he humbly thanks the guidance of his lovely “muse/wife.”

Evelyn Rudie began her career at age 3 and received an Emmy nomination at 5 for her portrayal of “Eloise” on TV’s “Playhouse 90” (the first time a child actress was so honored); she went on to star in more than 70 motion pictures and television shows (“the greatest child tragedienne of our time,” London Daily Express), and is the proud recipient of a star in Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. “Arguably the most talented and prolific producer-director-lyricist-composer-musician-actress in theatre” (LA Times), with her partner/husband Chris DeCarlo Ms. Rudie has been involved with more than 600 productions, including 400 World, American and West Coast premieres and 50 international tours, including seven of Jerry Mayer’s eight plays. Chris and she became Co-Artistic Directors of Santa Monica Playhouse in 1973 (where they met). She has received commendations from the City of Santa Monica, the City and County of Los Angeles, and the California State Senate, for completing 50 years of uninterrupted participation in theatre, film, television and arts education, a record that continues today. As director/playwright, career highlights include Dear Gabby, the Confessions of An Over-Achiever, the longest-running teen dramedy in LA history – 15 years in its initial run; the Shakespeare-inspired Love In Bloom – Critics’ Pick of the Year, American Press Network, the East Meets West Three-Continent International Theatre Festival; and Author! Author! – An evening with Sholom Aleichem. She also teaches, directs and lectures

Performances for “2 Across” will be Wednesday at 2 pm beginning January 20, 2016, Saturday evenings at 8pm and Sunday matinees at 2PM.
The show runs 90 minutes without an intermission.

CLOSED: KICK, a darkly comic solo play

[CLOSED December 13, 2015]

Yonanda Productions & Piccolo Productions, in association with Wendy Taucher Dance Opera Theater, present KICK, a darkly comic solo play written and performed by Joanna Rush. Directed by Tony Award nominee Lynne Taylor-Corbett, KICK opens at St. Luke’s Theatre, 308 West 46th Street, NYC on Sunday, October 25th at 7 PM for an open-ended engagement.

(October 2nd, 2015: New York, NY) Yonanda Productions & Piccolo Productions, in association with Wendy Taucher Dance Opera Theater, present KICK, a darkly comic solo play written and performed by Joanna Rush. Directed by Tony Award nominee Lynne Taylor-Corbett, KICK opens at St. Luke’s Theatre, 308 West 46th Street, NYC on Sunday, October 25th at 7 PM for an open-ended engagement.

On her way to her first big New York audition, dancer Bernie O’Connell is tricked into a car and attacked in a vacant lot off the Brooklyn Queens Expressway. KICK follows Bernie from a kickline to A Chorus Line to Hollywood and back as she picks up the pieces and finds the glue to put herself back together.

Director Taylor-Corbett said: “We follow this ex-dancer through a decades-long roller coaster ride in this story about faith, relationships, sexuality and spiritual awaking. From raped teenager, through the age of AIDS and homophobia, to empowered Interfaith Minister and grandmother of three, Joanna Rush entertains and weaves a tale with such wisdom and humor. I am so proud that this play has opened a conversation with many men. A young college guy stood up after a performance and said, ‘You’ve made me laugh and cry but you also made me realize that I have committed date rape.’ We need this conversation.  It is a positive antidote, not only to a misguided young guy like this, but to media stars who feel protected by their celebrity.”

KICK, originally called Asking For It, won rave reviews and four stars from Time Out when it was presented at the 2007 New York International Fringe Festival. It has played the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center and was developed at the NY Society for Ethical Culture, The Kirk Theater on Theater Row, Stocker Arts Center in Ohio, Peter Jay Sharp Theater at Playwrights Horizons, Becket Arts Center, The YardArts Festival, Martha’s Vineyard, Gloucester Stage, Newburyport Actors Studio, and the All For One Festival at the Cherry Lane. Sections of KICK were chosen by the U.N. Council for the Empowerment of Women and The Hunger Project to be performed at the International Women’s Day (NYC) in March 2008. Prior to the off-Broadway engagement, KICK was performed at Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland State, as well as the University of Massachusetts, Lowell.

In addition to KICK, Joanna Rush’s other theatre playwriting credits include Home Sweet Homeland, (Lynne Taylor- Corbett, director) which was work-shopped at Stocker Arts Center, Ohio, Best New Play Series readings at Gloucester Stage. Her screenplays include Irish Whiskey (co-author, “Best Screenplay” winner at the Temecula Valley Film Festival,) Mothers Day, a historical drama. Joanna’s Broadway acting credits include Pousse Café, Shirley MacLaine at the Palace. A Chorus Line (Shubert Theater, Los Angeles.) Off-Broadway she has appeared in Daughters, Inside Out, Grandma Sylvia’s Funeral, Broadway Scandals of 1928, and regionally in Beyond Therapy, Fifth of July, Freedomland, Little Mahagony, Great White Hope, Women Who Steal (WHAT), concert versions of Two by Two, and Minnie’s Boys at Jewish Rep. Joanna’s film and TV work includes Sunburn, On the Cliffs (winner Best Short Comedy 2004, Ohio Ind. Film Festival) Saying Goodbye, Shannon, Archie Bunker’s Place, A Killing Affair, Cagney & Lacey, and the pilot Straight no Chaser as the inappropriate mother of Bronson Pinchot. KICK is based on her book, ASKING FOR IT.

Director Lynne Taylor-Corbett was nominated for two Tony Awards and a Drama Desk Award for her direction and choreography of Broadway’s Swing! She also choreographed Chess and Titanic on Broadway. Off-Broadway she directed and choreographed Wanda’s World for which she won the Callaway Award and was nominated for a Lucille Lortel Award. Her production of My Vaudeville Man garnered a Drama Desk Award. Cougar the Musical, for which she was director and contributing writer, ran off-Broadway for almost two years and is licensed worldwide. She co-wrote and directed “Out of the Shadows,” the Good Housekeeping benefit for The National Women’s History Museum featuring Meryl Streep, Glenn Close and Jane Alexander at City Center. Her adaptation of The Lion King is in its seventh year at Disney Hong Kong. Her film choreography can be seen in the classic “Footloose”, “My Blue Heaven” and “Bewitched.” She directed “Real to Reel” a film-live action event developed in China and later presented at the Edinburgh Festival. She and special effects genius, Doug Trumbell, collaborated on a film shot for the Osaka World’s Fair which combines table top scenery and blue screen action. Ms. Taylor-Corbett has choreographed for numerous dance companies including American Ballet Theatre, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre and New York City Ballet, most notably “Seven Deadly Sins” starring Patti LuPone. Her work has been filmed for “Live From Lincoln Center” and “Great Performances”. This year she wrote and directed, “Hibari” in Tokyo, a homage to the Japanese icon, Hibari Misora.

KICK has scenic design by Dean Taucher (“Law and Order, SVU”, “Miami Vice”, “Sopranos”), lighting by Brant Thomas Murray (Ping Chong + Company, Peridance Contemporary Dance Company, Bodiography Contemporary Ballet Company), sound design by Joachim Horsley (orchestrations/arrangements for John Legend’s “All of Me” Tour, has scored over 25 independent films) and costume design by Keili Camille Murray (Bodiography Contemporary Ballet, Asking For It at the Cherry Lane Theatre).
