This quick-witted comedy from Pulitzer Prize nominee Theresa Rebeck (Broadway's most-produced female playwright and creator of NBC's Smash) centers on Leonard, an experienced author who's hired by four aspiring novelists to conduct an intensive 10-week writing seminar in an Upper West Side apartment. True to Rebeck's reputation as a master of quarrelsome comedy, these students get much more for their $5,000 fee than they bargained for. They soon find themselves attending a master class in ruthless and reckless behavior where writing is a blood sport, words are deadly weapons and sex is just a tool of the trade. Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: Bohemian Theatre EnsembleMission:
Creating theatre that incorporates the arts as a whole -- Art for art's sake.
To challenge convention through literary originality and eclectic expression while fostering an ever-evolving artistic environment in which people are inspired to learn, think, dream, and feel. To teach others and ourselves how to expand, create, and present art through theatre while reveling not only in the process, but also in the journey.
Bohemia is not so much a place on a map but a timeless concept that knows no geographic boundaries. The Bohemian recognizes that cherishing all aspects of art is tantamount to progression of mankind as more than just a living being.
The Four Basic Principles of the Bohemian represent their core values:
Truth -- That which is at the core of all things good and soulful
Beauty -- The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. -Aristotle
Freedom -- Without freedom, no art; art lives only on the restraints it imposes on itself, and dies of all others. -Camus
Love -- Life in abundance comes only through great love.
