11B) “The King of Kimono Comedy”
KATSURA SUNSHINE’S RAKUGO
Will Offer a Pre- Off-Broadway Sneak Peak  
February 14 – February 17, 2019

At Times Square’s Royal Family Performing Arts Space

Executive Producers Steven Honigman and Joe Trentacosta in association with Yumi Shinozaki and The Yoshimoto Creative Agency of Japan are proud to introduce the internationally renowned performer Katsura Sunshine to New York City with Katsura Sunshine’s Rakugo with a special Valentine’s Day weekend special presentation before its full Off-Broadway run this Spring. Four performances only, Katsura Sunshine’s Rakugo will perform Thursday, February 14 – Sunday, February 17, 2019 at The Royal Family Performing Arts Space (145 West 46 Street, 3rd Floor). Tickets are $40 and can be purchased by  visit www.Rakugo.lol.


Called King of Kimono Comedy, Katsura Sunshine’s  Rakugo comes to Times Square. Called ‘kneeling down, stand up comedy,’ Rakugo is the 400-year-old Japanese traditional art of comic storytelling, currently there are only 800 Rakugo Masters. Hailing from Canada, Sushine is the only Western Rakugo Master in the world and star of NHK Worldwide, he is hilarious, charming, universally funny and yet so very Japanese. Sunshine is the perfect performer to bridge the gap between the East and the West, in a hilarious style. Critics have raved “A delight, Katsura Sunshine’s Rakugo is funny and exciting. If you’re looking for a good way to laugh and forget your troubles this is the show for you!” and “Funny and delightfully intimate with a feeling of improvisation that makes it easy to love.”
With a minimal set, Rakugo features a lone storyteller dressed in kimono, kneeling on a cushion, using only a fan and a hand towel for props, entertains the audience with a comic monologue followed by a traditional story.

What's On At The Wild Project

February 14 – March 10 
SPACEMAN 
written by Leegrid Stevens directed by Jacob Titus
With Erin Treadway
Produced by Loading Dock Theatre in association with The Wild Project
Schedule: Wednesday – Friday at 7:30 PM; Saturday at 3:00 PM & 7:30 PM; Sunday at 4 PM
Tickets: $30; $20 for students/seniors
 
After an unfortunate accident during the opening night of Spaceman (2018) involving a speaker, a curtain call and 4 broken bones, Loading Dock is REALLY excited to announce that Spaceman is happening again. 

Spaceman follows astronaut Molly Jennis on her attempt to be the first human to reach Mars. Beginning seven months into an eight-month journey to the red planet, she is the lone crew member of the space module Aeneas. With a mission to establish a new colony, the difficulties of interplanetary space travel are brought to life in exacting detail. Radiation exposure, long term weightlessness, low light, extensive communication delays and poor hygiene are just a few of the challenges Molly Jennis must face on her quest to be the first to Mars, but she soon finds nothing compares to the psychological effects of having so much time alone.

All performances are at The Wild Project (195 E. 3rd Street, between Avenues A & B).

Tickets can be purchased online at www.thewildproject.org.

The Box Office opens one hour prior to curtain.

American Songbook 
Nancy And Beth Starring Megan Mullally and Stephanie Hunt 
When Megan Mullally and Stephanie Hunt first met, the Earth inhaled sharply. Reality expanded and shuddered with delight. The local tree frogs stoppered their raucous ditty and have nary been heard from since. That blessed day saw the voluptuous becoming of self-described “punk-showbiz” band Nancy And Beth, the most magnificent duo to ever lay lung to a blues chord. A brace of bounty in the form of two young girls who are exactly the same age, Mullally (the scene-stealing Karen in Will & Grace) and Hunt (Friday Night Lights and Californication) have been hailed as “musical misfits” (NPR) and “as sharp as any revivalist act going today” (Los Angeles Times). Together with their band of mystics, jazz pastors, and Austin, Texas, Wild West tea-heads, Nancy And Beth tackle everything from Tin Pan Alley standards to George Jones country and Gucci Mane, with all songs choreographed by Mullally, who studied at the School of American Ballet and has performed in several Broadway musicals. Following the success of their self-titled debut album and two national tours—which included stops at the Newport Folk Festival, the Grand Ole Opry, and Café Carlyle—Nancy And Beth will gamely endeavor to meet, and even exceed, your entertainment quota via harmonies in song, hypnotic dancing, and spoken pleasantries on the jewel-like stage of The Appel Room. 
The Appel Room, Frederick P. Rose Hall, Broadway at 60th St. 
TICKETS start at $55 and are available at the Alice Tully Hall and David Geffen Hall Box Offices, by calling CenterCharge 212.721.6500, or visiting AmericanSongbook.org

American Songbook 
Jenifer Lewis 
Jenifer Lewis’s current role as Dre’s outspoken mom Ruby Johnson on the Emmy-nominated series Blackish is only the latest in a long line of standout performances by the multitalented singer, actress, and activist. Her previous credits include notable roles in films such as What’s Love Got to Do With It, The Preacher’s Wife, and Madea’s Family Reunion, television’s The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and Broadway’s Hairspray, among others. As a singer, she has raised the roof as a solo artist in more than 200 concerts around the world. Using the power of her platform to speak out about social, political, and mental health issues, Lewis recently published an honest and poignant memoir, The Mother of Black Hollywood, about her personal journey to stardom, and she continues to connect with audiences old and new through her vibrant social media presence. This rare, intimate engagement in The Appel Room offers audiences a direct line into Lewis’s unvarnished, straight-talking artistry.

American Songbook 
Desmond Child 
Since his days performing in Desmond Child and Rouge in 1970s New York City, singer-songwriter Desmond Child has achieved legendary music-world status as a multi-platinum hitmaker. His songwriting credits read like a five-decade history of pop and rock music, including everything from Kiss’s “I Was Made for Lovin’ You” and Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” to Aerosmith’s “Dude Looks Like a Lady,” Cher’s “We All Sleep Alone,” and Ricky Martin’s “Livin’ la Vida Loca,” with over a hundred songs—including more than eighty Top 40 hits across virtually every genre in recorded music—along the way. Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2008 and cofounder, along with fellow Cuban-American composer Rudy Pérez, of the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame, Child recently joined the ranks of fellow musical innovators Sir Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, 
Patti Smith, Carly Simon, and others when he received an ASCAP Founders Award for his “exceptional contributions to music.” As a member of ASCAP’s board, he is also an outspoken advocate for musicians and songwriters in the age of streaming music services. Stepping out from behind the scenes, Child takes the stage at The Appel Room for an evening of soulful interpretations that lend new depth and dimension to songs you think you know.

RANDOM ACTS opens in the 1960’s at the height of the Civil Rights movement. It is here, on the south side of Chicago, that a scared five-year-old white girl finds kindness in chaos. How far can the ripple of one act of good will go? Now grown, one girls’ story proves that the effect of even a small good deed can reach farther than ever imagined.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for More Theater Monday.
