Highlights From Signature Theatre Company's stop. reset.
A new play from Signature Theatre Company's Residency Five playwright Regina Taylor, stop. reset. poses questions about legacy, identity and survival in a world where the real and the virtual are becoming increasingly entwined. When Alex Ames (played by Carl Lumbly), the owner of Chicago’s oldest African American book publishing company, meets J (Ismael Cruz Cordova), a mysterious youth seemingly "plugged in" to the future, Ames questions each of his employees to determine which of them is still relevant in the rapidly changing world. Playwright Regina Taylor directs the production at the The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre. Performances run through Sept. 29.
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
