our community: friend art @ second stage uptown began in the jam!

Just taking a moment to tell you about FRIEND ART, currently running at Second Stage Uptown — because collaborators Sofia Alvarez and Portia Krieger a) met, and b) started working on FRIEND ART in the New Georges Jam!  So we’re super proud to see the show up and running (The New York Times likes its “biting, aware humor;” we’re not surprised)…

…and are going to see it together on Thursday June 9!  Wanna come with us?  E-mail jaynie@newgeorges.org!

Kevin and Molly are a 30-something couple about to get married. Their best friend Nate just broke up with Lil, his much younger performance artist girlfriend. The group is navigating Gotham living at varying levels of success, which inevitably means attending friends’ basement art shows. In this comedy we’re confronted with what it means to support the art and decisions your friends make, regardless of what it does to your friendships.

thru June 12!  //  McGinn-Cazale Theatre, 2162 Broadway
