Not all New Yorkers head out of town over Labor Day weekend. The cool, creative ones stick around and support blossoming and seasoned artists.
These bohemians will take center stage this coming weekend as Broadway for All debuts a new initiative: The House is a new lab production program focused on bringing together working professionals, Broadway for All alums, and artists from the local community to present new works by heretofore unproduced playwrights.
A recent press releases describes the piece:
The House’s inaugural production presents Love (Among Dreamers) by MFA Columbia grad Greg T. Nanni. Morpheus’ heart has been broken for a million years. They enter a bet with Janus in the hopes of being granted a new beginning into love. The bet? See if two mortal lovers who only see each other in their dreams can find each other in reality, the one place Morpheus can’t influence.
The work is directed by Osh Ashruf (A Strange Loop, Merrily We Roll Along) with movement direction by Nikhil Saboo (Mean Girls, Dear Evan Hansen). It stars Amin El Gamal (Prison Break, Good Trouble), Elijah Guo (High Maintenance, Patriots Day), Bernard Scudder (BFA alum), and Connor Strycharz (BFA alum). Production stage management is by Luisa Sánchez Colón (Bright New Boise) with light design by Reza Behjat (English), costume design by Kayla Hom (BFA alum), and stage & co-props design by Olivia Beens.
Lab performances of Love (Among Dreamers) by Greg T. Nanni will be held in the black box space of El Barrio Artspace, PS109 located at 215 E 99th St. between 2nd and 3rd avenues, NYC..
Friday, September 1 at 7:30pm
Saturday, September 2 at 7:30pm
Sunday, September 3 at 2pm and 7pm.
Broadway For All (BFA) is a Manhattan-based national organization that equips young artists and professionals with the programming, community, and vision to build a more inclusive and powerful arts industry. Founded in 2012 by Osh Ashruf through Harvard University’s Presidential Public Service Fellowship program, BFA strategically integrates teens of diverse socio-economic statuses, ethnic identities, and zip codes – who were designed not to meet – and bursts ideological bubbles to foster discourse among the young artists.
In the spirit of accessibility and inclusivity, tickets will be made available for those who are financially challenged.
