The Black Glove

Black Glove, The by August Strindberg
December 2 - 16, 2017
"August Strindberg’s 'The Black Glove' Is a Cheerfully Morose Antidote to the Holiday Spirit" -- Village Voice, Dan Calllahan
"The production centers on the lost object of the title, which seems to confer the season’s spirit on anyone who finds it. Its original owner, however, has none of that warmth. A mean-spirited, wealthy young mother, she thinks that her maid has stolen her ring, which is actually inside the missing glove. A tomte, similar to an elf, conspires with the Christmas Angel to teach the woman a lesson. Points are scored, but this being a holiday entertainment, she ends up more like Scrooge than like Miss Julie." -- NY Times, Events for Children in NYC This Week by Laurel Graeber

 

 

 

Burnt House

Burnt House by August Strindberg (produced with The Storm)
October 3 - 20, 2015
"Burnt House has its own haunting music and message [which is to] confront one’s demons or run the risk of becoming a 'moth to a flame.' No weak links in this cast. . . all hold the stage and inhabit their characters with realism....August Strindberg Repertory Theatre is one of the best-kept secrets in New York...So keep your ear tuned to this company. They are making some mighty fine music with the Scandinavian master’s late-career works." -- Diedre Donovan, Theaterscene.com

Crimes and Crimes by August Strindberg
August 6 - 20, 2016
"Aronson has accomplished her goal. The play has witty moments and comic scenes. The absurdism makes for great melodramatic humor as well. The revision keeps the audience focused on its entertaining and engaging story for the entire duration." -- Yani Perez, Off-off Online

"an admirable undertaking … These actors make you feel proud of small troupes dedicated to obscure plays." --Ken Jaworowski, New York Times


The Father
by August Strindberg
November 15 to December 2, 2018 and August 25 to September 2, 2019
"Strindberg, a titan of modern theatre on par with Ibsen, is finally getting his due this side of the pond thanks to Robert Greer, the play’s gifted director and translator. Greer has done an extraordinary service for American theatre, directing eleven Strindberg plays to date. I look forward to more." -- Joshus Crone, Reviews from Underground

Guilty

Guilty by August Strindberg
September 5 - 17, 2017
"This fine production of “Guilty,” a United States premiere, was presented as part of TNC’s 8th annual “Dream Up” Festival. I am sorry that it had such a limited run (for now?) and hope that it may be revived. If one wants to see foreign works in simple unpretentious but competent productions, such NYC venues as TNC or H.E.R.E or other off-off and further off places must be sought out and supported, as well as the artists and companies, together with directors (who read) and translators who ferret out unknown work; they all deserve our thanks and active support. That is the duty of a city and its citizens who pride themselves of being “the cultural center of the World” (no less!)." -- Beate Hein Bennett, New York Theatre Wire

"Ivette Dumeng makes a wonderful Kristina..." -- Jean Sidden, Front Row Center

WORKS BY OUR COMPANY
MOUNTED BY OTHER PRESENTERS

 

The Pelican & Isle of the Dead by August Strindberg, presented by Theater for the New City February 6 - 22, 2020
Strindberg returned from the Continent to Stockholm in 1906, where he lived out his last seven years. There he wrote "The Pelican" for his Intimate Theater in 1907 and "Isle of the Dead" (Toten-Insel) immediately after as a prologue. The latter was unpublished until 1918 and rediscovered in the early 60s, when it was found and promptly dismissed as an incomplete fragment. The two plays were finally reunited by Ingmar Bergman in a radio version in 2003. It was his last dramatic production. In this production, August Strindberg Rep brought the two plays to the stage together for the first time in history. It was also the world premiere of new English translations of both plays by Robert Greer, who helmed the production.

In "Isle of the Dead," The Teacher (Gabe Bettio) reveals to The Dead (Brad Fryman) truths of his life by showing him "The Pelican." Behind: Jay William Thomas in "The Pelican." In "The Pelican," Margaret, the maid (Mary Tierney) confronts the diabolical wife, Elise (Natalie Menna).

 

 

Zen A.M.

Zen A.M. by Natalie Menna (resident playwright), presented by Theater for the New City
May 31 - June 16, 2019
"Our highest recommendation!   Hilarious, moving, politically thought-provoking comedy of manners.  An only-in-New-York satire centering on the failed plan to create an International Freedom Center Museum on the 9/11 site.  Once again, Theater for the New City offers a work of utmost relevance and entertainment value, enacted by  immensely talented actors, a brilliant director,  and an outstanding creative team." -- NY Theatre Buyers Guide
