Experiments 18: Tricks

April 30


Ellen Stewart Theatre | 66 E 4th Street; 2nd Floor

Monday at 7PM

By Michael Shayan

Wilkommen, bienvenue, welcome to the world-famous Hollywood Magic Castle! Cortez, our resident star-diva, will do anything to stay in the spotlight. Dee and Donya - the shady, kiki'ing, quick changing duet - have had it with Cortez's shenanigans. Flip them over because they're done. They'd like their turn at fame, but the Castle is in dire straits, and producer Barry thinks the answer is an infusion (or transfusion…) of fresh, young blood.

About Experiments Play Reading Series

For the past 18 years, the Experiments play reading series has provided a forum for talented playwrights to continue their creative process. The Monday evening readings at La MaMa give playwrights the opportunity to hear their developing plays read by professional actors and to receive valuable audience feedback. Experiments is a playwright ­driven service that is free to attend. Each season, it is organized around shifting themes and curators, which allows a larger, underserved theater community to experience a greater diversity of programming.
