Our Precious Bodily Fluids at Risk

BY TRAV S.D. | The clock is ticking. That’s the big takeaway from “Unexploded Ordnances (UXO),” the new show by Split Britches in the “Under the Radar Festival” at La MaMa. To zing the point home, they set a time-clock in the theater and instruct the audience to set their cell phone alarms to go off […]

Ludlam Celebrated By Those He Loved

BY DAVID NOH | The late, great Charles Ludlam wrote dozens of plays, but they are rarely revived right here in the very city in which he pioneered the alternative theater scene. To remedy that, La MaMa is reviving his “Conquest of the Universe or When Queens Collide,” commemorating both the playwright’s founding of his […]

Song of Himself

BY DAVID KENNERLEY | The spate of first-time revivals of groundbreaking gay-themed shows continues.

It could also serve […]

Putting On A Show… and Then Another and Another

Putting On A Show… and Then Another and Another

BY CHRISTOPHER MURRAY | Oh, I’ll go to three shows a day most weekends,” noted the downtown performance maven Nicky Paraiso as we walked along the Bowery a few nights before Thanksgiving. We’d just been to see sexy naked Hungarian dancers writhe about the stage for an hour while sweating copiously at the Abron Arts Center. […]

Lady And the Tramp 2

BY BRIAN MCCORMICK | Five years ago, husband and wife Chris Yon and Taryn Griggs packed their bags and moved to Minneapolis, and they haven’t been seen round these parts since. Now, thanks to the efforts of curator Nicky Paraiso at La MaMa, the two McKnight Fellows bring their unique brand of lovable, mad, Beckettian dancey-dance […]
