Queens Girl In the World

Queens Girl in the World looks at one young woman’s journey of self-discovery at the onset of the Civil Rights-era. It chronicles the misadventures of bright-eyed, brown-skinned Jacqueline Marie Butler, whose sudden transfer from a protective, middle class upbringing in 1950s Queens to a progressive, predominantly-Jewish private school in Greenwich Village. Funny,poignant, and filled with life — all punctuated with the irresistible sounds of Motown.

One Night Only Series

Where does a bullied 12-year-old who’s all of 4’6” and 70 lbs go to find a place where he can be strong, powerful, respected? On the back of a thoroughbred racehorse, where being small is of the highest value. But when that SMALL kid begins to grow, what lengths will he go to stay on the track? Robert Montano shares a roller-coaster auto- biographical story of his transformation from a tiny bullied boy who just wanted to dance, to an apprentice jockey learning the culture of the racetrack, to a professional rider, to self-destructive addict trying to maintain the rigorous demands of jockey-life, and finally to Broadway and beyond.

The Dork Knight

A play about one man’s obsession with Batman…

A look into one man’s obsession with movies about another man’s obsession with dressing up like a rodent and punching people, The Dork Knight traces the ups and downs of actor Jason O’Connell’s personal and professional life as seen through the prism of his love/hate relationship with the Batman movies.  Featuring numerous “cameos” from the bat-voices in O’Connell’s head, The Dork Knight is a trip down cinematic memory lane that begins with the 1989 Michael Keaton blockbuster, and strolls past George Clooney’s bat-nipples, Christian Bale’s bat-growl, and a couple of iconic Jokers en route to (sigh) Batfleck. O’Connell’s funny, intimate memoir demonstrates how one’s “inner geek” can guide and inspire in good times and in bad.
