OY! is a collection of eight 10-minute comedies, each illustrating the meaning of a Yiddish word -- with story lines including the untold stories of Eve and Adam, Einstein's demanding mother, the divorce trial of God and the human, the use of unkosher food as an aphrodisiac, and three men in a sauna who communicate using only the word "oy." Appealing to audiences of all faiths and all backgrounds, OY! is a tribute to the absurdity and comedy of the condition universal to everyone: that of being human. Learn More
General admission, but it only seats about 50 people so there isn't a bad seat in the house. Also there was no line to enter, they just opened the doors a couple minutes before 8 and people walk in, so there's no need to arrive early in order to get a better seat (though if you do you may buy drinks and snacks in their 'lounge'.)Blood Sky info • Mar 20 2014 star this tip starred
Written by David Storey
Directed by Terry Schreiber
David Storey’s Tony Award-nominated play,_ The Changing Room,_ offers an intimate, revealing portrait of a Northern England semi-pro rugby league team. Set entirely in the team’s locker room over the course of one game, the documentary drama follows the working class athletes’ pre- and post-game rituals, offering a powerful view of how people relate to one another, particularly in the stressful trenches of life. When The Changing Room premiered on Broadway in 1973, The New York Times hailed it as “mysterious and ultimately mesmerizing.”
About the Ticket Supplier: T. Schreiber Studio
The T. Schreiber Studio began in 1969 with Terry Schreiber teaching classes twice a week to twelve actors in a converted loft on the Upper East Side of New York City. Enrollment increased and the group began mounting productions in what were the early beginnings of New York City’s Off-Off Broadway movement and building its reputation of high quality productions and performances. The studio continued to grow, adding more faculty, more actors, and more plays and in the mid 70’s, drama critic Walter Kerr’s glowing review in the New York Times of Schreiber’s production of The Trip Back Down, brought the Studio much attention and packed houses. The Trip Back Down then moved to Broadway and John Cullum (Northern Exposure) was signed to do the lead. Throughout the 1980’s and into the 90’s the T. Schreiber Studio continued to produce good actors and good theater, adding Betty Buckley to its prestigious faculty and residing at 83 East Fourth Street, the burgeoning street of Off-Off Broadway. During that time Terry Schreiber continued his own directing career with two more Broadway shows: Devour the Snow and K-2, and numerous regional theater productions providing more casting opportunities for studio actors.
In 1996 the Studio moved to its current, renovated multi-use space on the 7th floor of 151 West 26th Street in New York’s lively Chelsea neighborhood. Classes and productions run continuously throughout the year.
