It's general seating. We were first in line to go through the doors when they opened but since we were not accustomed to the theater, we were confused where to sit. We sat upstairs but there was a wooden structure blocking our view of part of the action. We got the idea but next time we'll be sure to grab a seat opposite side of the stage.

We went to JCT. Kitchen afterwards for Sunday Supper. It was a delightful surprise, since we'd never been. Check it out!

It was a very interesting and provacative story-line. Loved the intimate venue... Some of the performers were a bit more seasoned and authentic than others, but overall it was good...

Description

Playwright: Stephen Adly Guirgis

Director: Freddie Ashley

The Motherf**ker with the Hat is a high-octane rollercoaster centered on Veronica and Jackie, who have been in love since 8th grade. Jackie, out on parole, is newly sober. Veronica is anything but. When Jackie finds a mysteriously placed man’s hat in Veronica’s apartment, he suspects that she is having an affair – and the emotional cage match begins.

Introduce Jackie’s A.A. Sponsor and his wife, along with Jackie’s hilariously fastidious cousin Julio, and you have what the New York Times called “a bruising, tragicomic apache dance of love, betrayal and indecision…by far the most accomplished and affecting work” from playwright Guirgis, whose other plays include _Jesus Hopped the A Train _ and _The Last Days of Judas Iscariot. _
