Alexandre bis & Comedy on the Bridge
Opening Night Gala Tuesday at 7:30pm
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7:30pm.
October 14-18, 2014
Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College

Gotham Chamber Opera, in collaboration with the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College, presents a double bill of Alexandre bis & Comedy on the Bridge, both by Bohuslav Martinu, from October 14 - 18, 2014 at Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College, 524 West 59th Street, NYC.

Alexandre bis & Comedy on the Bridge features music by Bohuslav Martinu with Neal Goren, conductor; James Marvel, stage director; Cameron Anderson, set designer; Fabio Toblini, costume designer; and Clifton Taylor, lighting designer.

A bridge to nowhere. A singing painting. An intermittent beard. Take a dip into the 20th-century absurd as Gotham Chamber Opera begins its 13th season with a double-bill of short comic operas by Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu. Alexandre bis (Alexander twice) is a surrealist comedy about a man who decides to test his wife's fidelity by shaving off his beard and posing as his own cousin from San Francisco. She recognizes him but falls in love anyway. Martinu's answer to Mozart's Così fan tutte observes the conventions of comic opera while tweaking them, thus proving that a composer, if not a husband, can have it both ways. Comedy on the Bridge tells the story of two rival principalities separated by a river. A woman returning from one side gets caught in the middle by a bureaucratic snafu; soon she's joined in this absurdist limbo by a letch, a fiancé, a vengeful wife, and a schoolmaster with a riddle. Everyone has a secret, but no one has a clue - except the composer, who gets them all happily sorted by the end. Featuring Jenna Siladie, Abigail Fischer, Cassandra Zoé Velasco, Jason Slayden, Jarrett Ott, Joseph Beutel.

Tickets are $30-$175 and are available online at, by phone at (212) 279-4200, or in person at 416 W. 42nd Street (between 9th and 10th Avenues) in the lobby of Playwrights Horizons.

It’s Smoothies For Us All!
The Theater at St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church

Fresh off successful runs at Dixon Place and Manhattan International Theatre Festival, Bob Katz, “The Folk Punk Woody Allen”, and his rascally mangos present “Quasimango, the Lunchbox of Notre Dame”, a one-man, ten-mango musical, in which our hero, a deformed mango, strives to win the affection of Notre Dame Fighting Irish cheerleader Esmeralda Kelly. As Esmeralda is traded to the never-winning Columbia University Lions, Quasi follows her from South Bend, Indiana to the North Pole to a cataclysmic climax at Columbia’s football stadium. Sung and narrated by a single performer who assumes more than ten roles – nine of them mangos – this combination of folk, blues, rock, and rap tells a story like no other. Refreshments will be served! Party with the mangos!
