For more than 27 years, the mystery-thriller "Perfect Crime" has kept audiences guessing with its comic, romance-filled take on the whodunit, making it the longest-running non-musical play in New York City history. The complex, twisty story unfolds in the secluded Connecticut mansion of Harvard-educated psychiatrist Margaret Brent, who's accused of murdering her wealthy British husband, and soon finds herself tangling with a handsome detective, who may just have fallen for her.
"Puffs, or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic" follows the (non)-adventures of a wizard named Wayne, his two somewhat familiar friends and the lovably underachieving members of a particular house, who are left to sit on the sidelines as a certain star student and his pals experience all the evil-battling excitement.
Inspired by a true story, this new LGBT comedy-drama from across the pond is set in the summer town of Blackpool, circa 1953, long before rainbow flags waved. But gay lovers Eddie and Tommy are inspired to crack open the closet door and risk it all, after getting mixed up with an eccentric group of characters at a seaside guest house, including a transvestite who's mustering the courage to take a walk as a woman in public. Billed as a "slice of camp British comedy with a heart-breaking punch," Once a Year on Blackpool Sands comes to the Loft at the Davenport Theatre in New York. This show is great for both a girls' night out or a group of LGBTQ friends.
This punchy, 75-minute production recaptures the passion and the controversy of the famous novel, then globally successful film, and repackages it into an immersive stage performance -- where the audience is literally part of the show, including the notorious "Worst Toilet in Scotland" scene. Trainspotting is the story of Mark Renton and his friends, living through the Edinburgh heroin scene of the '80s. Harry Gibson's original stage adaptation, written before it became the famous blockbuster film, was instantly successful and controversial, and won the Sunday Times Award for Best New Play. Don't miss this production at the 777 Theatre in New York City.
The children's book The Story of Ferdinand might have caused a controversy when it was released in 1936, but those uptight critics would have a heart attack if they saw what Company XIV has done with it in Boylesque Bullfight. This all-male baroque-burlesque spectacle puts an erotic spin on the macho world of bullfighting. You're going to have to cool down with a cocktail from the bar when this steamy fantasia comes to the stage of Théâtre XIV.
