Performances begin next week for the 2017 revival of Robert Patrick‘s Kennedy’s Children, presented by Regeneration Theatre for 6 performances only in an environmental production at UNDER St Mark’s in the East Village.

“The people are hungry and tired and weak and disillusioned, but isn’t that a sure sign that something’s crumbling?” – Rona, Kennedy’s Children

November 22, 1963. The day optimism died for a generation. November 8, 2016. Is history repeating itself? Do we ever learn from the lessons of the past. Are we destined to grow up like those who were left behind in Dallas – Kennedy’s Children…

This rarely seen, rich, evocative, and very perceptive play proves to be as relevant in 2017 as it was in 1974, and full of lessons that we should be playing close attention to in the current political climate.

The cast includes Emily Battles*, Jessica Carollo*, Colin Chapin*, Nicole Greevy*, Sara Minisquero, Timothy Regan under the expert direction of Erin Solér.

Tickets are $18 and available at http://regeneration.bpt.me.

Identity Theater presents Sleeping Ugly; written and directed by Nicholas Linnehan in a special showing on Sunday, June 11, 2017 at 7 pm at 215 East 99th Street @ The Underground Theater. Tickets: $12. RSVP to identitytheater@aol.com.

Nicholas Linnehan has reworked a age-old fairy tale to suit our modern world.

The character formerly known as Sleeping Beauty wakes up in a world where warts are in fashion … and she has them. While she’s en vogue, she can’t wrap her brain around this drastic change, nor can anyone around her. “Sleeping Ugly,” as she has renamed herself, flees her village and bumps into the Ugly Duckling, who, like Sleeping Beauty/Ugly, is the subject of bullying for his appearance. The two become fast friends.

Meanwhile, the Ogress Queen, here called Malificent, is still obsessed with being the fairest of them all. She believes that Sleeping Ugly’s new fashionable warts hold the key to her problem. She strikes a deal with Sleeping Ugly to take her warts. As part of the deal the Ugly Duckling will get to become a beautiful swan. Malificent casts a spell and each character gets exactly what they want, or do they? They’ve all gotten what they want but will they live happily ever after? Sleeping Ugly examines the concepts of beauty and body image and social presences regarding them.

Identity Theater Company is a group of differently-abled artists devoted to exploring and challenging issues of the human condition. ITC strives to present works that cultivate understanding, promote tolerance, and engage its participants in meaningful discussions.

The secrets of a war from long ago are brought to light in P.O.W., a new play by Irving A. Greenfield, directed by Laurie Rae Waugh, part of the American Theatre of Actors’ Cutting-Edge Summer Series, Wednesday – Saturday, June 7 – 10 and June 14 – 17 @ 8:00 p.m. Sundays, June 11 & 18 @ 3:00 p.m. BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the cast in rehearsal below!

Ms. Waugh has become synonymous with tackling intimate dramas with sensitive subjects. In this drama, a college professor and former Vietnam Vet reads a short story to his class that alarms the Dean of the Department; enough so to facilitate his arrest and subsequent trial – for his life. Our country’s morals are on trial with this distinguished academic.

Celebrated character actor Ken Coughlin portrays the professor. Featured in the cast are Amy Losi, Victoria Christi, Anthony Gallo, Alan Charney, Mike Durell, Nick Pascarella, Harrison Friedman, and Teddy Montuori.

The American Theatre of Actors is located at 314 W 54th St, New York City. Tickets available at (212) 581-3044
