The Theater at the 14th Street Y Announces 2017-2018 Season

The Theater at the 14th Street Y recently announced the upcoming shows in its 2017-2018 season.

The Theater at the 14th Street Y, which is known for its edgy performances, will honor the history of the East Village this 2017-2018 season.

The theater works in conjunction with LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture, as its residency program. The pieces that are created focus on social change and awareness. The Theater also encourages and supports new artists by providing them with resources and a space to create their work.

"In an effort to provide an environment for free expression for our curated artists to more easily create, the 14th Street Y has changed its model to be a co-presenter of all the works in our season," said Ronit Muszkatblit, artistic director of arts and culture at the 14th Street Y, in a press release. "To make this possible, we have made our Theater even more accessible to a wider artist base, also providing box office, administrative, marketing, and technical support to truly put artists at the center of our community."

Some of the upcoming shows for The Theater at the 14th Street Y's 2017-2018 season, according to a recent press release, include:

The Curly Monologues
September 27-28
What happens when you get 12 women, girls, and even some guys performing original monologues that speak to the essence of who they are? This show is about way more than hair, or even the Tribe of Curls. The Curly Monologues is presented by Jonathan Pillot and Project Curly.

Everything you have is yours? 
February 8-10, 2018

The Invisible Book
January 22-February 11, 2018
An invisible boy and an invisible girl wander through an invisible town—but in this invisible world, there is no sound. Then one day, a sound begins: a beating, a drumming, a thumping calling out to the invisible friends. The audience is led into a parallel world of sound and visual poetry. The Invisible Book, created by Keren-Ann Zeidel and Elinor Milchan, was adapted by Gina Bonati with music by Keren-Ann Zeidel, directed by Ronit Muszkatblit, and produced by Adi Ezroni.

We Are A Masterpiece
April 6-22, 2018
During the AIDS crisis, patchwork families were formed; friends and co-workers becoming brothers and mothers, stepping into the holes that their family members left. When a nurse, Joan meets John, who has been abandoned by his partner and family, an unlikely friendship blossoms between them. We Are A Masterpiece is presented by Retro Productions, written by Gina Femia, and directed by DeLisa M. White
