recommendation

I'm not personally representing this show, but I just saw the first two installments tonight and this is a quality off-off Broadway production. The writing, acting, directing, and sound design are all top notch and this play is totally different from anything else thats out there right now. They close tomorrow but if you have the time to check it out, do yourself a favor and GO!

REVIVAL OF

VICE GIRL CONFIDENTIAL


By Todd Michael, Directed by Walter J. Hoffman


November 5-8 & November 13-15 at 8pm, November 9 & 16 at 7pm at UNDER St. Marks (94 St. Marks Place between 1st and A)

An expose not for the faint of heart, VICE GIRL CONFIDENTIAL uncovers the grime and grit plaguing the seedy streets of 1950s Gotham. Only one man, D.A. Walter Slade, can stand up to vice-racket kingpin Duke Craigie—that is, if he can shake off his yen for Stella Fontaine (played by Todd Michael), the madam of New York’s most infamous brothel.

(RE:) DIRECTIONS THEATRE COMPANY
PRESENTS
AS WE SPEAK

By John Patrick Bay, Directed by Tom Berger

November 7-10, 13 - 16, & 20 - 22 at 8pm, and November 15, 22, & 23 at 3pm at the 14th Street Y Theatre (344 E. 14th Street between 1st and 2nd Ave)

“This is not the time to question authority. You are either with America, or you are not.” In a post-9/11, post-Katrina world full of the politics of fear and doctrines of intolerance and hate, what are we willing to sacrifice for our own sense of security? What liberties are we willing to give up so we can go to bed at night? Inspired by Sinclair Lewis’ classic It Can’t Happen Here , AS WE SPEAK shows the drastic effects on the average American if what eventually emerges as a fascist dictatorship legally wins the American Presidency. Commissioned by RTC, AS WE SPEAK takes a look at what could happen in an America stripped of her civil liberties and the dangers of too much power in the wrong hands.

Tickets ($18, $13 students) are available online at www.SmartTix.com or by calling 212-868-4444.

November's show will feature tantalizing performances by Amber Ray, GiGi La Femme, Kobayashi Maru, Darlinda Just Darlinda, Peekaboo Pointe, and Gal Friday, with your charming and inebriated host, Bastard Keith!
