Davis (portrayed by Daytime Emmy Award Winner, Darnell Williams) and Ruth (portrayed by Tamara Scott) are two strangers desperate to make a human connection in Sightlines, by Emmy Award nominee Mark Eisman. In this intimate two-person play, Ruth struggles with bitter sense that her life has been little more than a series of betrayals, which has caused her to blur the lines between reality and an unreal, dreamlike sense of self. When she meets Davis, and he extends a helping hand, they smash through an ever-blurring reality into a Lewis Carroll-like world in a love story that defies most conventional preconceptions. This unique production unfolds in an otherworldly set that is a true feast for the senses, accompanied by a haunting original score. Learn More

<p>In this glittering theatrical extravaganza, the infamous juggling duo, The Liberty Sisters, have been fleeced by an evil ponzi schemer. Sybil and Statua Liberty embark on a mad-cap tour of revenge...but they aren't the only ones after the greedy crook. Mistaken identities, missed opportunities, star crossed lovers and variety hall numbers all combine to bring East Village high camp back home. It's tragedy, it's farce, it's mystery, it's mayhem...it's "Jewels of the Forbidden Skates."</p> <p>Starring: Jennifer Miller, Carlton Ward, Ashley Brockington, Rae C. Wright, Sally May, Adrienne Truscott, and Tanya Gagne. Music by Kenny Mellman and design by Jonathon Berger. With additional text for Bernie Madoff by Deb Margolin.
