Composure

June 1 to June 24

It was supposed to be a casual fling. When Fletcher Driscoll returned to his hometown to direct his alma mater's production of Romeo and Juliet, he never expected to end up in a star-crossed romance of his own. He never expected to get involved with Jeff, recently out and carrying his own complicated past. Nor was he quite prepared to confront Tommy, his high school best friend who broke his heart...repeatedly and on purpose. Fortunately, Fletcher and Jeff have decided to keep it simple, so what could possibly go wrong? A powerful drama about the resonance of loss, Composure is for everyone who has ever loved the wrong person and worries that it's too late to find the right one. The Workshop Theater's previous production of Composure received 2016 New York Innovative Theatre Awards for Outstanding Direction (Fritz Brekeller) and Outstanding Original Full-Length Script (playwright, Scott C. Sickles). Composure is the final production of The Workshop Theater's 23rd season.

Roundabout Theatre Company

June 8 to September 3

Roundabout Theatre Company presents Marvin’s Room, a wildly funny play about the laughter that can shine through life’s darkest moments. Scott McPherson’s only play to be staged on Broadway given his premature death due to complications from AIDS stars Janeane Garofalo, Lili Taylor and Celia Weston. Roundabout presents the world premiere of Napoli, Brooklyn, a poignant new play about an Italian immigrant household in 1960s Brooklyn. When three young daughters confront a changing world and sexual identity, their paths diverge—in drastic and devastating ways—from their parents’ deeply traditional values. Despite their fierce love, each young woman harbors a secret longing that, if revealed, could tear the family apart. Receive 20% off by using the code PRIDE17 for either show.

Leslie Lohman Museum

June 10 to September 3

FOUND is a survey of up-and-coming artists trained for the trail, socio-anthropologists of the queer. Matt Lipps forages through the archives of the defunct arts journal, Horizon Magazine, for proof of a gay footprint, re-photographing the evidence he finds into vivid tableaux that seasons the entire history of Western art with the correct amount of post-industrial luridness. Artist Reena Katz unearths a literal dreamscape from the mixed tapes of her coming-of-age, which she weaves into AudioCloth pillowcases that crackle and moan under hand-held tape heads. Brian Christopher Glaser molds society pages into class leviathans, and constructs a deluge of hair ads. Alyse Ronayne unearths hybridizations that cross the taint of self tanners with hand-selected confetti, the breadcrumb trails of parties gone by. Gaye Chan combs though more generalized historiographies of colonialism for the specific outlines of queer identity. Curated by Avram Finkelstein.
