Up Up With Off-Off

I love off-off-Broadway fare. Last night Bart and I saw three one-act plays at the soon-to-be-evicted Emerging Artists Theater Company on a soon-to-be-demolished stretch of Theatre Row on 42nd St between 9th and 10th Avenues. This 50-seat theater is on the fourth floor of a well-worn building. My friend Sam appeared in the second act, "Asteroid Belt", as the pajama-clad father of a college student approaching her death in a head-on car collision in excruciating slow motion. "Invisible," the third act, was a brief vignette about aging gay men with the fanciful premise that we become invisible to younger people when we hit 40. It was a cute statement on accepting life's passages and letting go, ten minutes was about the right length for it. Most interesting to go to a 7pm show and be home by 8:30pm, too. And no extra sleep to show for it....
