Weekend Entertainment

If you're looking for something to do this weekend (and if you're reading this blog on a Friday night then trust me, you're looking for something to do this weekend) you should check out Armed & Naked in America: A Naked Angels Issues Project.

Armed and Naked in America is 14 established and emerging playwrights' responses to life during wartime America. They're presented together on one stage over two weeks in April by the New 42nd Street at The Duke Theater.

Week 1 (April 11-15) features eight plays, including
  • Naked Angels company member Theresa Rebeck
  • Academy Award nominee Jose Rivera (Motercycle Diaries)
  • Arab-American playwright Betty Shamieh
  • Itamar Moses (Bach at Leipzig)
Week 2 (April 18-22) features six plays, including
  • Tony and Drama Desk Winner David Rabe
  • Tony Award Winner Warren Leight
  • Will Eno
  • Naked Angels company member Pippin Parker
As an added bonus, short videos by some of the city's hottest sketch comedy groups, music performances and special guests from the worlds of politics, media and entertainment will compliment the theatrical performances.
