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

AWESOME is a great word to discribe the event! My boyfriend and I went, not knowing exactly what to expect but dressed the part. He wore a throw back Member's Only jacket, black T, jeans, red All Stars and 1980 shades. I wore a blk mini dress, hot pink fishnets, short boots w/ leg warmers, big hair, lace gloves and a hot pink bow in my hair. We fit right in!!
From the second you hit the door you felt as though you went back in time. The setting is 1989 Prom night. And you are as much a part of the show as the actors... Which ROCKED!! My date was actually pulled in to a football huddle in the hall. We got seperated 3 times for dancing too close by a 'teacher' and again by the 'Principal'... The drinks were VERY reasonable at $6 for a Jack and Coke and the music was AMAZING!! We danced our butts off all night! The crowd ranged from a few younger girls 13/15 to about 50ish - with about 50-60 people tops. The atmosphere was soooo 80's prom with all the 'movie type' 80 characters - almost anything would work as far as attire...The 80's was all about the hair, the attitude and the music.. We lived the 80's and LOVED the Prom!!! If you go with an open mind and an intention to Rock all night... You'll have a great time!!

About the Ticket Supplier: Awesome 80s Prom - New York
The Awesome 80s Prom is a brand-new blast-from-the-past party in the style of Tony 'n Tina's Wedding and The Donkey Show, set at Wanaget High's Senior Prom...in 1989! All your favorite characters from your favorite '80s movies are at the prom, from the Captain of the Football Team to the Asian Exchange Student, from the Geek to the hottie Head Cheerleader, and they're all competing for Prom King and Queen. And just like on American Idol, the audience decides who wins, all while moonwalking to retro hits like "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go!" Come "Back In Time," to quote a Huey Lewis tune, and join the breakdance circle or just sit back and watch the '80s drama unfold. Come on, you know you have a Members Only jacket somewhere...
