The cast shift takes place on September 6th. Pulse Theatre will presents Strings Attached, an exciting new American play by multi-award winning Poet and playwright Carole Buggé, which merges the world of physics into a love triangle on a train ride. Directed by Alexa Kelly, the limited engagement will play a five-week limited engagement, August 29 through October 1, at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street, NYC). Opening night is Thursday, September 8at 7PM. Tickets are now on sale at TheatreRow.org or by calling the box office, 212-714-2442 ext. 45.

The company of Strings Attached features Robyne Parrish (A Man Called Otto with Tom Hanks, Gossip Girl on HBO Max), Brian Richardson (A Man for all Times, National Tour; Macbeth, Harlem Summer Shakespeare), Paul Schoeffler (Sunset Boulevard, Rock of Ages, Sweet Charity on Broadway), Bonnie Black (Citizen Wong at Pan Asian Rep), Jonathan Hadley (Jersey Boys on Broadway) and Russell Saylor (Screams of Kitty Genovese at NYMF).

Loosely based on real events, Strings Attached  features three contemporary scientists – two cosmologists and a particle physicist – on a train ride from Cambridge to London to see the play, Copenhagen, by Michael Frayn. Enroute, they discovered a theory of the Big Bang. The appearances of Isaac Newton, Marie Curie and Max Planck bring in another realm of reality, add insight into their contributions, and earthy humor. We are left with the message that life with all its strife, is still a thing of ultimate beauty.

Strings Attached is presented by Pulse Theatre, the Off-Broadway emergence of Pulse Ensemble Theatre, a well-established NYC theatre company, that amongst over things, founded and developed the Harlem Summer Shakespeare for 14 seasons.

At the Irish Arts Center, 726 11th Avenue, Chekhov’s first play Dead Centre will play Oct 19, 2022 – Nov 6, 2022.

During the turmoil of the Russian Revolution in 1917, Maria Chekhov placed many of her late brother Anton’s manuscripts in a safety deposit box. In 1921, Soviet scholars opened the box and discovered a play. The title page was missing. The play they found has too many characters, too many themes, too much action. Unstageable. Like life.

Obie-winning Irish contemporary theatre company Dead Centre has deconstructed the Chekhov text into an explosive and stirring work—a “wildly playful piece about the elusiveness of meaning” (Guardian)—that has dazzled audiences around the world. Book previews by Labor Day to avail of early bird pricing.
