A LETTER TO OUR CUSTOMERS

Hello, there! My name is Stuart Brynien, and i'm on the senior sales staff here at the Drama Book Shop.  I am seeking input from our customers for a project i'm working on--an oral history of the shop that i'm hoping to have ready (translation: published) in time for our 100th anniversary celebration in 2017.  Among the questions I'm asking everyone: What is your earliest memory of the book shop? Your favorite memory? Over the years, what has the shop meant to you personally? And finally, how important is our store to New York City in general and the theatre community in particular? Of course, any other comments would be welcome, too.

If you would like to contribute, your comments can be as long or as short as you wish, and should be sent to my attention at info@dramabookshop.com.

Thanks for shopping at the Drama Book Shop, and I hope to hear from all of you soon!

Sincerely,

Stuart Brynien

Published: McFarland & Company - November 30th, 2013

Based on true stories from her life as the daughter of a Lebanese mother and American diplomat father, Leila Buck's ISite invites the audience on an intimate journey in search of identity, home, and the space in between.

Jamil Khoury's drama Precious Stones boldly examines the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the "safe" yet turbulent terrain of the American Diaspora.

Yussef El Guindi's Our Enemies: Lively Scenes of Love and Combat is a darkly humorous and sensual look at identity, media-representation, love and lust in the Arab American community.

In Lameece Issaq and Jacob Kader's Food and Fadwa, a Palestinian family living under occupation fights to hold onto their culture and traditions while still celebrating love, joy and hope.

A preface by Arab American scholar Michael Malek Najjar and a new essay titled "Towards an Arab American Theatre Movement" by Silk Road Rising's artistic director, Jamil Khoury, concludes the book--a valuable expression of Arab American life and theatre in the United States.

GIN GAME on Broadway with James Earl Jones & Cicely Tyson. Previews September 21, 2015

THE GIN GAME
by D.L. Coburn
directed by Leonard Foglia

Broadway's Golden Theater

With James Earl Jones & Cicely Tyson.

Previews begin September 21, 2015. Opens October 13.

This winner of the 1978 Pulitzer Prize, which originally starred Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn and was later revived with Julie Harris and Charles Durning, uses a card game as a metaphor for life. Weller Martin is playing solitaire on the porch of a seedy nursing home. Enter Fonsia Dorsey, a prim, self righteous lady. They discover they both dislike the home and enjoy gin rummy, so they begin to play and to reveal intimate details of their lives. Fonsia wins every time and their secrets become weapons used against one another. Weller longs for a victory to counter a lifetime of defeats but it doesn't happen. He leaves the stage a broken man and Fonsia realizes her self-righteous rigidity has led to an embittered, lonely old age.
