Me The People

Dear Friends,

We want to share an off-Broadway musical with you today called Me The People: The Trump America People.  It is currently showing at the Triad Theatre on West 72nd Street.

It is “just what the columnist ordered—an uproarious take on the craven, self-dealing Trump agenda intent on tearing down our government and building a stupid wall. The show delivers a topical, up-to-the minute mockumentary of red-white-and-orange America.”

Sarah Downs from Front Row Center says that it is “a clever, satirical revue set to tunes from the Supremes to the Eagles to CeeLo Green. The talented quartet of Aisha Alia Dukes, Mitchel Kawash, Richard Spitaletta and Mia Weinberger sing with exuberance and commitment, doing hilarious impressions of everyone from Sigmund Freud to Jared Kushner to Hillary Clinton.”

Tickets are on sale through September 02, 2017—you definitely don’t want to miss this!  To learn more or buy tickets, click here.

Best regards,
Philp and Marilyn

It is a story based on the real-life events of an escaped slave, who demands sanctuary at Fort Monroe, Virginia from General Butler.  This limited engagement runs through August 28, 2016—so if this is something you are interested in seeing (and we earnestly hope you will be!), then don’t wait to book your tickets!  Call the box office (212-279-4200 for non-members of 59E59 or 646-892-7999 for members) or click here to purchase tickets on line.

Don’t wait!  This is a once a year opportunity!

Sanctuary

Dear Friends,
We are writing to you today about a very limited engagement of a fantastic play, Sanctuary, by Susanne Sulby, which is billed as a “powerful one-woman show about the universal experience of war across the centuries” and is a play about the impact of war on women.
It is currently playing here in New York off-Broadway until January 23rd at the Lion Theatre (410 W. 42nd Street). 
In her own words, Sulby felt compelled to write this play because she could not keep quiet any longer.

This project began for me many years ago when I was watching coverage of the conflict in Serbo-Croatia. As it unfolded, I was shocked and appalled. I couldn’t believe that after the tragedy of the Nazi Holocoust the world could still tolerate ’Ethnic Cleansing.’ I couldn’t understand how this could be happening.

Last year, this 5-star play ran in Washington, D.C. to rave reviews:

She has created a memorable exploration of what war does to us, and why peace matters. Thank you, Susanne Sulby, for your remarkable solo performance.–DC Metro Theater Arts

From my first viewing of “Sanctuary,” a powerful one-woman show about the universal experience of war across the centuries, I knew this was a different kind of theatre experience.–R. Albu, Go! Magazine
