Hello,


I have 2 shows for this week so far. I Just got in tickets for BLUE MAN GROUP (a very small amount of tix for this Tue at 8pm – see new cool video “Pipes” below!), and also have tickets to this new and very interesting and uniquely staged “razor sharp” play called BULL for this Tue, Wed and Thur at 7:15.


Let me know ASAP if you would like some tickets, for which show, which performance, and how many tickets you need.


Best,

Denise

It’s new. It’s cool. Blue Man Group has updated its New York show. Taking a closer look at the technology that both surrounds and isolates us, Blue Man Group showcases technogeek ingenuity while uniting the audience in primal, collective exhilaration. Signature Blue Man Group moments combine with breathtakingly fun new pieces for an explosive evening of entertainment.

The silent, inquisitive Blue Man character was the brainchild of three forward-thinknig friends – Matt Goldman, Phil Stanton and Chris Wink – who pooled their multifarious talents and interests to create a theatrical presentation that was completely new.

BULL at the 59E59 Theatre, 59 East 59h Street


- Tuesday at 7:15 (Tickets $15 each

- Wednesday at 7:15

- Thursday at 7:15


Two jobs. Three candidates. This would be a really bad time to have a stain on your shirt. Written as a companion piece to last season's Off Broadway hit Cock, BULL is a razor sharp play about office politics; or playground bullying - depending which side you're on.


NOTE these are “Ring Side Standing Only Seats”. Meaning that you are standing around the Boxing Ring (see below for this really interested show and staging info). So there are no seats.


Recent article synopsis: Many of us know what it feels like to fight to keep one's job in today's economy. But tough-talking British playwright Mike Bartlett — last represented on these shores by the provocative Cock — tackles this topical subject with unusual brutality in his 55-minute play Bull, now being given an exemplary production as part of the Brits Off Broadway Festival at 59E59 Theaters.


One immediately expects to see some physical violence upon entering the venue. Director Clare Lizzimore and designer Soutra Gilmour have configured a pseudo-boxing ring in the middle of the space — one that some patrons literally stand around — while the rest of the audience sits above as spectators. But the uppercuts that are thrown by Tony (Adam James) and Isobel (Eleanor Matsuura) against rival Thomas (Sam Troughton) turn out to be purely verbal.


While the three are actually corporate teammates, we soon learn that one of their jobs will be eliminated by head honcho, Carter (Neil Stuke). And the self-confident, highly manipulative Tony and icy Isobel know exactly how to hit the weaker-willed Thomas both above the belt — focusing immediately on a smudge on his face and the cut of his suit (which is exactly the same as Tony's) — as well as below it. And as they wait for Carter to arrive, the gamesmanship escalates. Is Isobel lying about being sexually abused to throw Thomas off guard? Did Thomas screw up by not bringing his sales figures? And what does it really matter whether Thomas is willing to put his face against Tony's well-sculpted bare torso?


If much of this behavior seems like little more than schoolyard bullying, that's probably Bartlett's point. It's easy to see Isobel as the ultimate mean girl or Tony as the popular ringleader, neither of whom has ever grown beyond their early childhood roles. And while Thomas is physically their equal — despite some comments to the contrary — he has obviously been socialized to accept his status as a loser. However, the consequences of not fighting back prove to be far more serious at his age than a black eye or a bruised ego.
