An explosive comedy about love, relationships, and the consequences of a lousy backhand.
59e59 Theaters: November 2016.
The Venturous Theatre Fund has awarded Andy Bragen Theatre Projects a grant. It’s the company’s first, will be used to support our inaugural production, of my play “Don’t You Fucking Say a Word”, this November.
“The Ice Siren”, my second collaboration with jazz saxophonist and composer John Ellis, will be reprised at The Jazz Gallery on February 19th and 20th. I’m excited to hear it again – some terrific performers, including John, and the amazing singers Miles Griffith and Gretchen Parlato. Here’s a link to excerpts from an earlier performance, in the old Jazz Gallery space on Hudson and Spring. (The new one, happily is more spacious!):
