House of Blue Leaves
By John Guare
Directed by Michael Donahue
Produced by Susan Kaplan and Sue Winfield
In this whacky, poignant comedy, Zoo attendant Artie Shaughnessy is a failed songwriter with visions of fame and glory. He copes with an overly medicated wife, an impatient mistress, an AWOL and homicidal son being pursued by military police, and beer-drinking nuns on the day the Pope visits New York City. His girlfriend convinces Artie to call his old school buddy Billy Einhorn, a famous film director from Los Angeles, to finagle a job writing music for Billy’s movies in a desperate attempt to find stardom. Set in 1965 in Queens NY, House of Blue Leaves is a unique blend of farce, dark comedy and drama. It illuminates the American dream and an obsession with celebrities that is still relevant today. Winner of the Obie and Drama Critics’ awards for Best American Play. This production contains mature themes and graphic language. Single tickets on sale now!
