Butler (Playing at 59E59 Theatres in NYC)
Limited Run: July 14 – August 28
Inspired by controversial Civil War General Benjamin Butler, Butller comes to NYC at 59E59 Theaters.
It's the start of the Civil War and lawyer Benjamin Butler was just promoted to the rank of Major General at Fort Monroe, a Union hold-out in the state of Virginia. Shepard Mallory, an escaped slave, seeks sanctuary at the fort. However, the law of the land has not yet changed — slaves still are considered property and must be turned over to their "rightful owners." Does Butler follow the letter of the law or make a game-changing move that could alter the course of U.S. history?
Based on actual events, this powerful comedic-drama, called "Splendid" by The New York Times during its run at New Jersey Repertory Company, arrives at 59E59 for its NYC premiere.

   

Iago
August 25 – September 25
A posthumous NJ Premiere by James McLure
The backstage intrigue, romance, and scandal that take place during and after rehearsals of "Othello" are the backdrop for this period comic-drama. Three extraordinary actors at the top of their game along with a well-known director try to piece together a production of "Othello" as they whittle away at each other in this passionate, highly theatrical play by the author of "Lone Star," "Pvt. Wars", "Wild Oats", and "Laundry and Bourbon".

   

Mad Love
October 20 – November 20
A new comedy by Marisa Smith, author of Saving Kitty
Sloane Hudson, a rich, beautiful recent Ivy League graduate and product of the campus hook up culture and frat basement pong tournaments, doesn't believe in love or marriage. She does believe in babies and wants one soon so her tummy can bounce back and she can still wear a bikini. The problem is she needs a sperm donor who passes muster. Enter Brandon, who's got the right stats but the wrong attitude. Brandon has enough on his plate already and lives with brother Doug, the infamous "De-Fenestrator" who just fell in love with Katerina, the hooker from the Ukraine. Cabbage soup, a rare baseball card and a lizard named Pogo all play a part in this romantic comedy for cynical times.
