Described as "a cross between Sandra Bernhard and David Sedaris" by Entertainment Weekly, writer-comedian Mike Albo has built a career skewering our culture of celebrity and consumerism. His latest solo show, The Junket, investigates the troubled state of modern journalism by way of a press junket gone horribly wrong. Assigned a freelance column he thinks will make his career, Albo instead becomes the latest gossip item gleefully savaged by New York's snarkiest blog. The result is a journalist's hilarious yet thoughtful reflection on professional ethics, artistic integrity and even love in an era of morally bankrupt news-gathering. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Thomas Kilroy’s version of The Seagull is a dazzling reappraisal of Chekhov’s first great comedy, a story of a distinguished actress and her passionate, lonely son. In the decline of Anglo-Irish estates and the emergence of the Land League, Kilroy unearths fascinating parallels to the shifts in Russian society that inform Chekhov’s original. This acclaimed adaptation illuminates the play’s universal themes while revealing new social and political angles.
