It comes from tender, intimate appeals, soaring to roof raising heights, as she all the while works the piano with ease and command...where Witt really excels is in her ballads, personal and universal poems of love, longing, and everyday girl issues. Her lyrics flow with a poetic polish, and her piano playing rivals that of rockers Billy Joel or Elton John.” - What Duvet Said, review

Running Time: 45-60 minutes | Tickets: $15. Not having a title and a concept is the guiding force of this piece, where stream of consciousness evokes unexpected desires and motivation. The work is derived and driven by its four inhabitants and follows a kinetic logic supported by eclectic compositions including Bach, Brazilian pop and Mio Morales' deconstructed sounds as well as text created in collaboration with the dancers. The overall effect is a reflection on the collapse of systems and relationships through the exploration of uncertainty, waiting, mischief and creation. By mixing the various influences that inspire her choreography, Regina Nejman has created a fresh work which stimulates audiences to think, feel and to question these turbulent times. The New York Times (Jennifer Dunning) called Regina Nejman "a modern-dance choreographer with a piquant imagination and visual sense to match." She grew up in Rio de Janeiro and is based in New York, where she has been creating her own choreography since 1993 and founded her own company in 1997. Her company has toured in Brazil twice and she has been presented at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, Joyce SoHo, Symphony Space, New York International Fringe Festival (where she was awarded the 2005 outstanding choreography award), DNA, DTW's Fresh Tracks, Merce Cunningham Studio, and more. She has received support from The Greenwall Foundation, Puffin Foundation, LMCC/ MCAF; Meet the Composer, MFTA; space grants from 92nd St Y, Queens Museum of Art, Abrons Arts Center, and Joyce Theater Residency. Nejman has received commissions from Princeton University, The Yard, NJCU and most recently received a Mondo Cane Commisssion from Dixon Place, where she premiered "Annette."

She was as a teaching artist for HAI and was a guest artist at Princeton University, Wesleyan University, and was an adjunct teacher at NJCU. She taught master classes at NYU Common Hour Class, Harvard Summer Dance, and LaGuardia Performing Arts High School.

'Just Sex' - Theater for the New City
Through August 22, 2011 - New York

"Just Sex" (world premiere) written by Brandt Johnson, directed by Alex Kilgore. Johnson Theater - Sunday, August 14 at 2:00PM; Monday, August 15 at 9:00PM; Wednesday, August 17 at 7:00PM; Saturday, August 20 at 7:00PM; Monday, August 22 at 7:00PM. Running Time: 90 minutes | Tickets: $15. Katherine and William are married to each other and are in lust with other people. Can they follow their erotic impulses without violating their vows? In the online era, does betrayal begin with mere pixels on a screen, or only once flesh touches flesh? Instead of suppressing their desires, or acting on them surreptitiously, Katherine and William make the perilous decision to open their marriage. Sex with others is okay, they agree, as long as it is just sex. But as they grapple with how to keep love intact amid extracurricular escapades, they confront frequent and often comical reminders that "just sex" can be hard to find. What starts as a simple exercise in physical release becomes a complex challenge to the couple's notions of normalcy, love, and marital fidelity. "Just Sex" is Brandth Johnson's second play to be produced. He performed his first play, a solo show called "Give and Go: Learning from Losing to the Harlem Globetrotters," at FringeNYC 2007 and again at the Metropolitan Playhouse in 2010. He later worked as an investment banker, played professional basketball in Europe, and played on tour against the Harlem Globetrotters. Johnson now writes and acts and has appeared in numerous New York City productions, including Blue Light Theater Company's "The Pitchfork Disney" (Off-Broadway); Walt Disney's workshop of "Hoopz," directed by Savion Glover and Kenny Leon; and the workshop of "Joe Fearless" with Matthew Broderick and Rosie Perez. Johnson is a Williams College graduate and has an MBA from New York University. www.brandtjohnson.com Alex Kilgore, as Founding Artistic Director of he stageFARM, an Off-Broadway company, conceived, commissioned and directed both 2008's SPIN series (Gina Gionfriddo, Elizabeth Meriwether, Adam Rapp, Mark Schultz, and Judith Thompson) and 2007's VENGEANCE series (Neena Beber, Ron Fitzgerald, Gina Gionfriddo, Julian Sheppard, and Francine Volpe). He also directed the world premiere of David Folwell's "Drug Buddy for the stageFARM at Cherry Lane and produced Off-Broadway premieres of Elizabeth Meriwether's "Oliver Parker!," Mark Schultz's "The Gingerbread House," and Gina Gionfriddo's "U.S. Drag." Off-Broadway acting credits include the US premieres of David Folwell's "Boise," Philip Ridley's "The Pitchfork Disney" (Blue Light Theater Co.), "Refuge" by Jessica Goldberg, and "Lost Highway" (as Hank Williams). Film credits include "Fever" (1999 Directors' Fortnight Cannes), "If I Didn't Care," "High Maintenance," "Cowboy Jesus"…etc. TV credits include "Wonder Showzen," "The City," and "Swift Justice." In 2009, Alex was hired to adapt the classic B noir film "House on Telegraph Hill" for Bill Bannerman (Twilight: Eclipse) to direct. This script, "Unveiled," is in preproduction, and his original screenplay "Texasstyle" starring Henry Thomas, Bill Sage, Didi O'Connell, and Luke Wilson is set up for him to direct with Sweet 180/Lillian LaSalle producing. Kilgore is the President of The Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and plays in the band CLAW.

I Light Up My Life: The Mark Sam Celebrity Autobiography - Dixon Place
Through August 26, 2011 - New York

MARK SAM ROSENTHAL PRESENTS Another triumph from the creators of “Blanche Survives Katrina in a FEMA Trailer Named Desire" I Light Up My Life: The Mark Sam Celebrity Autobiography August 12-26 – Five Performances Fri., Aug.12 @ 5:00pm Sat., Aug. 13 @ 12:00n Wed., Aug. 17 @ 9:15pm Wed., Aug. 24 @ 4:00pm Fri., Aug. 26 @ 7:00pm Venue #5 - Dixon Place 161A Chrystie Street (Rivington & Delancey Streets), New York, NY 10002 The New York International Fringe Festival - FringeNYC A production of The Present Company August 12th - 28th Tickets: $15-$18. For tickets visit www.FringeNYC.org Visit www.ILightUpMyLife.com for insightful and inappropriate introductory videos posted by Mark Sam in the coming weeks! Mark Sam Rosenthal is tickled to present I Light Up My Life: The Mark Sam Celebrity Autobiography, an over-the-top multi-media presentation of Mark Sam’s 789 page yet to be published homage to his favorite celebrity: himself. Part of the 15th annual New York International Fringe Festival, the production will be held at Venue #5: Dixon Place, 161A Chrystie Street (bet. Rivington & Delancey Streets), New York, NY 10002 for five performances from August 12-26, 2011. Todd Parmley directs a cast of one: Mark Sam Rosenthal, a celebrity. The world's first preemptive celebrity autobiography traces the rise to semi-obscurity of Mark Sam Rosenthal ("one of the city's great comedic storytellers" - Time Out) from his continental origins in the second-grade class French play through an ill-fated onscreen dabbling in the world of adult entertainment to his not-quite-breakout off-Broadway triumph as a cross-dressing, time-traveling Blanche DuBois. Along the way, drugs are taken, delusions are grand, and our celebrity deals inappropriately with his bi-religious identity, 9/11, and a death from AIDS - although not his own. Says Rosenthal of his Amtrak-speed ascendance into the fame orbit, "If I could inspire just one soul with my tale of success that's all I ask - more than one would be too much competition." I Light Up My Life plays for five performances from August 12 through 28. I Light Up My Life: The Mark Sam Celebrity Autobiography is presented by Mark Sam Rosenthal. Producer: Jim Bredeson: Stage Manager: Kate August; Publicist: Paul Siebold/Off Off PR. Director Todd Parmley is a multi-faceted theatre artist: a director, actor, and educator. In New York, he has directed two episodes of Blair Fell’s hit live epic series, Burning Habits, a workshop production of the award-winning new play, 99 Degrees, and several productions at Stella Adler Studios (NYU). Todd also directed the world premiere productions of 516 (five sixteen) at FringeNYC, For Love of the Boy at Yale University, and Mark Sam Rosenthal’s solo show Blanche Survives Katrina in a FEMA Trailer Named Desire at FringeNYC, Off Broadway at the SoHo Playhouse, and in Provincetown. Mark Sam Rosenthal is a Baton Rouge native living in New York. The solo show he wrote and performs, Blanche Survives Katrina in a FEMA Trailer Named Desire, had a nine-week off-Broadway run at New York’s SoHo Playhouse in winter 2009 and a summer run that same year at the Art House Theater in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Blanche originally premiered to sell-out crowds at the 2008 New York International Fringe Festival, where it won the Village Voice Audience Award and an overall festival award for Outstanding Solo Show. Mark Sam has studied and performed improv comedy with the Upright Citizens Brigade and acting with the Atlantic Theatre Company and the Barrow Group. He has done the stand-up and the storytelling thing, and his comedy sketches have been performed on both coasts. He has choreographed and performed award-winning burlesque at Joe’s Pub in New York and been a guest host on Sirius Satellite Radio’s morning drive talk show, OutQ in the Morning. Other writing and performing credits include his first solo show Love Mercy (the PIT), Menage a Trailer (Chicago's Factory Theater), Beyond the Valley of the Switchblade Pussycats (UCBT), and The Indigo Girls vs. George W.
