Image
New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus! Take your place on the front lines of the battle of the sexes in this hilarious, one-man fusion of theater and stand-up, based on the best-selling book by John Gray. Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus was released more than two decades ago, yet it remains one of the most popular relationship guides out there.

"OR CURRENT RESIDENT" @ THEATER FOR THE NEW CITY

Image
NEW YORK -- Part of our shared experience as Americans today is how we strain under the weight of the tech sector. Millionaires are made overnight and we endure the distortions of social media while gentrification pushes us out of our homes. When that happens, it rips us away from our history as if we never mattered. That's the idea behind "Or Current Resident," a new play by Joan Bigwood, which will be performed by Squeaky Bicycle Productions from February 3 to 25 at Theater for the New City, where it is a resident company. Brandi Varnell, Artistic Director of Squeaky Bicycle, directs.

More Info And Tickets Here.

ABOUT THE SHOW


The play is set in a Silicon Valley bungalow, from which three generations of the Finch family are in constant fear of being uprooted. The family patriarch, an engineer, has passed on, and the resilient matriarch, Mimi, holds the household together in cramped and rambunctious harmony. Everyone pools their earnings to rent month-by-month from a land…
