Hey. 

 

I just got shows for the weekend - a limited number of tickets to the enjoyable VOCA PEOPLE for this Sunday night at 7pm and 4 performances this weekend for STANDING ON CEREMONY, a collection of short plays by some excellent writers including Pulitzer Prize winner Doug Wright, Paul Rudnick, Neil LaBute, Moises Kaufman and Jeffrey Hatcher. (more details below)

 

VOCA PEOPLE, at the Westside Theatre, 407 West 43rd Street

 - tickets for Sunday 12/17 at 7pm

 

Tickets are $30 (normally $80)


Voca People is an out-of-this-world musical event that combines vocal sounds, a capella singing, comedy and the art of beat box. Performed by eight performers with perfect harmony, there are no musical instruments, only vocals. Voca People believe music is the source of life that brings harmony, joy and refueling. A performance bursts with over 70 well known songs that create vocal "fireworks" and leave audiences clapping along and snapping their fingers. Voca People is the musical theater event that bridges languages, cultures, and planets.

STANDING ON CEREMONY, at The Minetta Lane Theatre, 18 Minetta Lane just south of West 3rd Street off 6th Avenue.

 

Tickets available for:

-      Saturday 12/17 at 2pm

-      Saturday 12/17 at 8pm

-      Sunday 12/18 at 3pm

-      Sunday 12/18 at 7pm

 

Tickets are $30

 

The nine short plays that make up Standing On Ceremony include:

- The Revision by Jordan Harrison, an amusing look at how two men might rewrite their vows to more accurately reflect the limited options available to a gay couple.

- This Flight Tonight by Wendy MacLeod, which asks if there is any hope for happiness when a lesbian marriage begins in Iowa.

- On Facebook by Doug Wright, adapted from an actual Facebook thread chronicling one long fight among friends on the subject of gay marriage.

- White Marriage by Jeffrey Hatcher, in which a wife and husband discuss his "gay" sense of humor.

- This Marriage Is Saved by Joe Keenan, a satiric vignette about a disgraced evangelist and his wife who insist that his extra marital flings has only strengthened their marriage.

- Strange Fruit by Neil LaBute, the story of two men in love whose plans to get married "the old-fashioned way" are stymied when reality rears its ugly head.

- The Gay Agenda by Paul Rudnick, a sadly hilarious plea for understanding by an Ohio homemaker and member of Focus on the Family.

- London Mosquitoes by Moisés Kaufman, a poignant story in which a widower tries to make sense of the loss of his long-time lover.

- Pablo and Andrew at the Altar of Words by José Rivera, a moving play about two men who use their marriage vows to "say the things we never really say".

 

 

If you are interested in attending either show, please email with what show, and for how many tickets you would like.

 

Best,

Denise
