generations
Written by debbie tucker green
Directed by Leah C. Gardiner
Oct. 1–Nov. 9
Soho Rep (46 Walker Street)
Tickets: $35-65 "In generations, audiences are invited into a kitchen in a South African township where a fragrant meal is being prepared. As they cook, three generations of a close-knit family banter and share stories and food. Both urgent and exuberant, green’s formally daring play tackles what’s transmitted and lost through generations of a family—and a nation."

Featuring a 13 person choir led by music director Bongi Duma (The Lion King) and a cast including Shyko Amos (An Octoroon), Mamoudou Athie, Khail Toi Bryant (The Lion King), Ntombikhona Dlamini, Thuli Dumakude (The Lion King), Jonathan Peck and Michael Rogers.

The Duchamp Syndrome
Written by Antonio Vega
Directed by Ana Graham
May 2015
The Flea Theater

"The Duchamp Syndrome tells the story of Juan, a solitary immigrant in The Big Apple, who dreams of stand-up comedy stardom. An unusual assortment of fellow travelers, human and not, help him practice his routines and prepare for his mother's visit from Mexico (provided she can get a visa). He's got to impress. But is he being honest with her, and himself, about the new life he's making? The Duchamp Syndrome is a provocative love letter to New York, with guest appearances from a large cast of repurposed objects."
