FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, PLEASE
THE NEW YORK PREMIERE OF ACCLAIMED
“ T H E T W E N T I E T H – C E N T U R Y W A Y ”
BY TOM JACOBSON
DIRECTED BY MICHAEL MICHETTI
SET FOR NEW YORK INTERNATIONAL FRINGE FESTIVAL
AUGUST 14 – 24
AT THE PLAYERS THEATRE
New York, NY – Following their acclaimed world premiere production, The Theatre @ Boston Court (Jessica Kubzansky, Michael Michetti, Artistic Directors; Michael Seel, Executive Director) has announced that The Twentieth-Century Way, a new play by Tom Jacobson, will have its New York premiere at The NY International Fringe Festival this summer. The limited engagement, starring Will Bradley and Robert Mammana (reprising their roles), will begin performances August 14 at the Players Theatre (115 MacDougal Street, NYC).
Based on a little-known incident in Los Angeles history, in which city officials hired actors to entrap homosexuals for “social vagrancy” in the public restrooms of 1914 Long Beach, this labyrinthine thrill ride blurs the lines between actor and character, the entrapper and the entrapped, with its breathtaking, and ultimately shocking, theatrical sleight-of-hand.
Tickets for The Twentieth Century Way are priced at $15 and go on sale July 23 www.fringenyc.com or by calling (866) 468-7619. The playing schedule is as follows: Saturday, 8/14 at 7:30 p.m., Monday, 8/16 at 5:15 p.m., Wednesday, 8/18 at 8:45 p.m., Saturday, 8/21 at 12:15 p.m. and Tuesday 8/24 at 4:15 p.m.
Praise for The Twentieth Century Way:
“One of the most intelligent and sobering plays
in the short history of gay theater.”
