Directed by Alice Jankell, the world-premiere comedy will continue through Nov. 3. Looking Glass Theatre produces.
The cast features Tricia Alexandro, Richard Busser, Michael Kingsbaker, Claudia Mason and Sarah Nedwek.
In The Goddess, press notes state, a "contemporary New York couple pushes the boundaries of their marriage by agreeing to openly pursue multiple partners. Will their respect for each other’s freedoms promote greater intimacy? Or will their exploration open up a Pandora’s box of unanticipated challenges? Into this world a woman of mysterious origin inserts herself to prescribe a therapy suited for modern times."
In a recent statement co-creator Lambert, who is married to Nowell, said, “The unspoken reality that couples crave multiple sex partners, and can even benefit from cultivating multiple relationships seems to be in direct conflict with the ideal of marriage as a relationship founded on monogamy. The common view of marriage as a traditional institution does not allow for this. Our play explores the topic and how fidelity isn’t necessarily compromised by sexual openness.”
Performances are Thursday-Saturday at 8 PM and Sunday at 3 PM.
Write Act Rep Theatre is located at 309 East 26th Street. Tickets, which are $18, can be purchased by calling (866) 811-4111 or by visiting lookingglasstheatrenyc.com.
