Wednesdays - Saturdays 8PM
Saturdays 2PM & Sundays 3PM
Theater for the New City
155 1st Ave. NY
John and Jane Allison are newlyweds.Although they love each other, they have desires they haven't even acknowledged to themselves, let alone explored. But after giving her neighbor Roberta White a kiss, Jane goes "down the rabbit hole," entering the strange world of a Speakeasy, where time and space and identity don't appear to follow conventional rules. On accepting a sexual proposition in a public men's room, John mysteriously slides "through the looking glass," and in one fantastical magical realist dream night, they explore their sexuality through the course of two simultaneous and intertwining magical adventures. Lewis Carroll's literary characters and events from "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass" are transformed into real-life historically- significant entertainers and events from NYC's Prohibition-era queer culture, with whom Jane and John enjoy friendships and love affairs. After a night of speakeasies, buffet flat parties, police raids, drag balls, and a bizarre trial, will they reveal their "dreams" to each other and "speak easy" about their truths?

Medium of Desire: An International Anthology of Photography and Video
Up to March 5th
Using human beauty, desire, Eros, and sexuality, this new photography based exhibition reveals that cultural differences, whether defined by national borders, sexual orientation, or gender identification, can be simultaneously vast yet familiar. Regardless of one's sexual orientation or country of origin, feelings of desire, when successfully represented, can serve to minimize our differences and bring us closer.
