After nearly four decades together, Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfre
d Molina) finally tie the knot in an idyllic wedding ceremony in lower Manhattan. But when George loses his job soon after, the couple must sell their apartment and – victims of the relentless New York City real estate market – temporarily live apart until they can find an affordable new home. While George moves in with two cops (Cheyenne Jackson and Manny Perez) who live down stairs, Ben lands in Brooklyn with his nephew (Darren Burrows), his wife (Marisa Tomei), and their temperamental teenage son (Charlie Tahan), with whom Ben shares a bedroom. While struggling with the pain of separation, Ben and George are further challenged by the intergenerational tensions and capricious family dynamics of their new living arrangements.

PRIDE is inspired by an extraordinary true story. It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.

America’s Next Top http://rosendaletheatre.org/2014/10/25/americas-next-top/ http://rosendaletheatre.org/2014/10/25/americas-next-top/#comments Sat, 25 Oct 2014 12:59:13 +0000 http://rosendaletheatre.org/?p=11352 9:30 pm | Live performance | $15 advance/$20 door

Comic and actor, Julie Novak, debuted her bold, hilarious, and ground-breaking one-woman-show, “America’s Next Top: One Top’s Hysterical Take on Life, Love, Tools and Boxes” during this year’s Women’s Week in Provincetown. “I laughed until I cried,” said one audience member after the show. “I’ve never felt so energized by any other performer I’ve seen in Provincetown and I’ve seen them all,” said a Women’s Week veteran.

The show, running one-night-only on November 22nd at the Rosendale Theatre, will be directed by Starling Productions/TMI Project founder and executive director, Eva Tenuto, who also co-wrote the show.

“America’s Next Top” offers keen insight into gender variance, the politics of queerness and everything in between. “The show is a collection of observations and true stories based on my life growing up as someone who found herself not really having a defined position on the gender spectrum,” says Novak.

Included are moving stories about such things as coming out and experiencing homophobia and discrimination, all told with a twist of humor unique to Novak. “America’s Next Top” showcases not only Novak’s strong comedic talents, but also her skills as a singer, impersonator and all around dynamic performer.

“She is a bold and fearless performer,” says Tenuto. “What I love most about her work is its ability to give a strong, powerful voice to an often voiceless community. Her ability to charm the audience and get them laughing, makes the sometimes taboo content accessible for everyone.”

Audiences are sure to be won over. Novak has been touching and entertaining audiences for years, with her signature brand of humor. In addition to performing in and around the New York Tri-State area for the past 15 years, she studied comedy and improv at Second City in Chicago, and has performed stand-up in Chicago, New York, and Washington DC. She recently participated, along with such comedians as Lewis Black and Kathy Griffin, in the Serious Laughs Comedy Festival in Kingston, NY and headlined Queerstock, a Woodstock, NY gay and lesbian cabaret.

Mathias Gold (Kevin Kline) is a down-on-his-luck New Yorker who inherits a Parisian apartment from his estranged father. But when he arrives in France to sell the vast domicile, he’s shocked to discover a live-in tenant who is not prepared to budge. His apartment is a viager – an ancient French real estate system with complex rules pertaining to its resale – and the feisty Englishwoman Mathilde Girard (Maggie Smith), who has lived in the apartment with her daughter ChloĆ© (Kristin Scott Thomas) for many years, can by contract collect monthly payments from Mathias until her death.
