1918: A House Divided

1918: A House Divided
a hotly debated war; legislation branding dissenters as unpatriotic; anti-foreign sentiments inspiring anti-immigration laws; families torn apart by generational conflicts; lesbians and gays finding each other in Greenwich Village; music and art flourishing in New York City. No, it isn't 2007-it's 1918: a House Divided. the musical includes artists, Jewish immigrants, lesbians and gays, and a nude artists' model. Original music by allison Tartalia evokes the time period, from patriotic tunes to Yiddish flavored ethnic melodies to ragtime and more. Locations include an artists co-op sketch class, a bohemian club on Macdougal Street, and a drag ball at Webster Hall.

Birds On Fire

Synopsis:
Birds on Fire portrays what might have been the lives of four unidentified victims of the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in Greenwich Village. the production is part of the commemoration of the 100 year anniversary of the disaster. Life-size puppets portray the people in power - factory owner, architect, superintendent of buildings, city alderman - contrasting with the immigrant Jewish and Italian employees. Two women, childhood friends from eastern europe in America for five years, have dreams of a better life beyond the factory. This couple helps a recent arrival from eastern europe who tries hard to adjust to her new and difficult life in America. the young Italian seaman who helped her on the dock jumps ship to find this woman he loved "at first sight." the lives of these four converge in the Triangle Factory. they work hard, play hard during their precious hours of relaxation and share their hopes, dreams, and love. the tragic fire that is the climax of the play steals from them their future as well as their past.

Ghosts Of 14th Street, The

Synopsis:
the Ghosts of 14th Street is set in New York City in 1908, when 14th Street was the entertainment capital of the city. In the Biograph Film Studio, the actors film scenes of a primitive one-reeler, while between takes they reveal their dreams, fall in love and practice routines they hope will take them to live theatre. a husband and wife acting team are forced by scandal to work in the 'flickers', an immigrant housekeeper leaves her gangster husband from an arranged marriage, a dancer finds love at the gay hangout, his sister laments her unrequited love for the housekeeper, an African American dancer refuses to perform in blackface, and two stagehands are determined to win the New York Times LimErick Contest. In the Olympic theatre, the play replicates a typical evening of Vaudeville, including dance, comedy skits, female mimickry (cross-dressing), and the song 'yiddishe Yankee Doodle Boy' (lyrics by Barbara Kahn, music by allison Tartalia), as well as the finished film.

Spring And Fall Of Eve Adams, The

Synopsis:
the Spring and Fall of eve adams recounts the true story of an extraordinary woman who was a victim of homophobia and anti-immigrant hysteria that ultimately led to her death. In 1926 eve adams, a Jewish lesbian from Poland, was proprietor of "eve's Hangout," a tearoom at 129 Macdougal Street, where local poets, musicians and actors congregated and shared their work in salon evenings. eve's haven of artistic and sexual freedom was soon threatened by religious and governmental authorities, leading to her arrest, imprisonment, and deportation. the conflict between progressive and reactionary forces provides the Drama in the play as the characters attempt to live and love free from discrimination. the play conveys not only a long forgotten moment in New York history but sheds light on current threats by holding a mirror to the past.

Unreachable Eden

Synopsis:
Unreachable eden Dramatizes the life of Polish Jewish lesbian eve adams (born Chava Zloczower) who ran a tearoom on Macdougal Street in 1926, a gathering place for artists, writers and actors. She was deported from the U.S. as an "undesirable alien" and spent the 1930s in Paris, selling banned books to english-speaking tourists. While eve and her friends Henry and June Miller and anais Nin enjoyed both cafe and nightlife in France, in Germany the Nazi government was banning and burning books and implementing its war against Jews, homosexuals and others deemed "undesirable." these parallel worlds collided during World War II, once again putting eve in jeopardy as a Jew, a lesbian and an immigrant. eve's first deportation in 1927 led ultimately to her second deportation, this time from France to auschwitz in her native Poland. This courageous woman deserves to be rescued from forgotten history.

Walking From Rumania

Synopsis:
This is a new historical Drama written and directed by Barbara Kahn, inspired by the women-only groups of fusgeyers(pedestrians) who walked across Rumania to escape hardship and discrimination. This description is provided by the playwright: "Five women in a small village prepare to join a larger group that is leaving a nearby city in three months. Two of the women are drawn to each other and plan to stay together in America. a pogrom (rampage against Jews) brings tragedy and provides greater impetus for the women to risk the journey. Two Gypsies function throughout the play as a 'Greek chorus', with folk tales and music that comment on the action. Walking from Rumania concludes on a hopeful note, with the fusgeyers on the verge of beginning their daring escape."
