NO ONE LOVES US HERE by Ross Howard. New Light Theater Project at Urban Stages, beginning January 15, 2015

NO ONE LOVES US HERE
by Ross Howard
Directed by Jerry Heymann

New Light Theater Project at Urban Stages
January 15, 2015 through February 7, 2015.

Set in present day Central Valley, California. When Washington, a young Native American, is invited to stay in the Beaumonts’ upscale guest house, both Mr. and Mrs. — miserable and unsatisfied in their marriage — use Washington to make arrangements that will help them escape their unhappiness. But when Washington begins to fall in love with Mrs. Beaumont, he manipulates the wealthy household occupants and pins family against family, leading to a climactic bloodbath. A contest for territory, No One Loves Us Here is a black comic portrait of love and obsession, the aspiration of displaced youth and a crumbling white-collar class.

Performances will be at URBAN STAGES
259 West 30th Street (at 8th Avenue)
January 15-17, January 22-24, January 29-31, February 5-7 @ 8:00PM

CONSTELLATIONS by Nick Payne, with Jake Gyllenhaal, on Broadway beginning December 16, 2014

Meet Nick Payne at the Drama Book Shop on January 15, at 6:00 p.m.

CONSTELLATIONS

by Nick Payne

With Jake Gyllenhaal and Ruth Wilson

On Broadway at Manhattan Theatre Club's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. Beginning December 16, 2014, Opening January 13, 2014.

Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain, Prisoners) makes his MTC and Broadway debuts in the first American production of CONSTELLATIONS, a new play by Nick Payne (If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet), which premiered at London’s Royal Court Theatre to tremendous acclaim. Michael Longhurst (If There Is…) directs.

This mind-bending, romantic journey begins with a simple encounter between a man and a woman. But what happens next defies the boundaries of the world we think we know—delving into the infinite possibilities of their relationship and raising questions about the difference between choice and destiny.

If the science at the center of Nick Payne’s smart, slushy and pretty superb Constellations is right, then there’s a parallel universe in which Manhattan Theatre Club never produced the play, the Royal Court never premiered it, Payne never wrote it. Good thing – for Broadway, anyway – that we’re in this particular cosmos.

A must-see major new production, Let the Right One In is an enchanting, brutal vampire myth and coming-of-age love story

Tony and Olivier Award-winning director John Tiffany (Black WatchOnce) heads up a creative team including Olivier Award-winning associate director Steven Hoggett (Black WatchBeautiful BurnoutAmerican Idiot).

The National Theatre of Scotland production of Let the Right One In, previously seen in London at the Royal Court, will transfer there, beginning performances March 26, prior to an official opening April 7." 
Now, a new temporary floor has been installed at the balcony level, while ongoing investigations and maintenance work take place in the roof. Below this floor hangs a beautiful, large, ceiling cyclorama of a night sky, designed by Let the Right One In set designer, Christine Jones, which immerses the audience deeper in the world of the play.

The Swedish horror-drama about a love between a vampire and a bullied schoolboy is brought to life once more in this sensitive, ambiguous adaptation 

July 7, 2014: An Undead Tale of the Teenage Years. ‘Let the Right One In,’ a Stage Version of a Vampire Novel. Ben Brantley, New York Times >>

LONDON — And just when you thought you’d had your fill of young vampires in love, along comes a ravishing little romance of the undead that’s guaranteed to warm — and break — your heart, even as it chills your blood. “Let the Right One In,” which is bringing limelight to endless night at the Apollo Theater here, turns your emotions inside out in a way you probably haven’t experienced since you were a teenager.

Adapted by Jack Thorne from a novel and screenplay by the Swedish writer John Ajvide Lindqvist, and killingly staged by John Tiffany and Steven Hoggett, “Let the Right One In” is both the bleakest and most compassionate of vampire stories. 
To sit in the midst of the audience at Let the Right One In, now arrived in Brooklyn by way of Dundee and London, is to watch a crowd in thrall. And why not? Tiffany’s merging of theatrical elements – the lights, the sound, the costumes, the set – is masterly. And the movement work of associate director Steven Hoggett ensures that this particular tale, a stage adaptation of John Ajvide Lindqvist’s modern vampire story, is more than just live cinema.
