The Theater at the 14th
Street Y
Announces 2017-2018 Season

NEW YORK – The Theater at the 14th Street Y continues to honor the edgy, diverse, and rich history of innovative culture making in the East Village with their 2017-2018 Season.

Each year, the company presents a provocative season of theater and dance from independent New York artists in dialogue with the residency program of LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture. The goal is to provide a big picture narrative focused on social awareness and change that transcends cultures and borders. The Theater supports the creation of new art and culture by placing artists at the heart of the 14th Street Y community, and providing the space, time, and resources needed to create new work.
"In an effort to provide an environment for free expression for our curated artists to more easily create, the 14th Street Y has changed its model to be a co-presenter of all the works in our season," said Ronit Muszkatblit, Artistic Director of Arts + Culture, the 14th Street Y. "To make this possible, we have made our Theater even more accessible to a wider artist base, also providing Box Office, administrative, marketing, and technical support to truly put artists at the center of our community."

The Theater at the 14th Street Y welcomes artists of all backgrounds, seeking to create an inclusive and open cultural experience for all.
Highlights of the season include:
●  Flux Theatre Ensemble's AM I DEAD? The Untrue Narrative of Anatomical Lewis, the Slave by Kevin R. Free
●  New Yiddish Repertory presents Awake and Sing by Clifford Odets, in the original Yiddish. 
●  Shamel Pitts and Mirelle Martins perform Black Velvet, a dance/multi-media piece developed through an art residency at São Paulo Dance Company and Escola de Dança de São Paulo in Brazil. 
●  Based on the children's book by Keren Ann Zeidel, The Invisible Book
introduces audiences to invisible characters in an invisible world, whose surroundings slowly become visible through their love for each other. 
●  14th Street Y continues the ground-breaking series by LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture, which pushes the boundaries of what Jewish art can be and what Jewish texts can teach.  LABA is a program of the 14th Street Y.  Each year, LABA Fellows share works in process partnered with a teaching in the LABAlive Series. The LABA 10th Anniversary season kicks off with DRUNK, an evening of wine tasting with renowned sommeliers, revelry, and new work inspired by ancient Jewish text.

"Seven years ago, I began work with the Theater at the 14th Street Y as a LABA: Laboratory for Jewish Culture fellow, with no idea that I would become the Artistic Director of Arts + Culture. When I began in this role, the different artistic programs existed in their own bubbles and had no discourse," said Ms. Muszkatblit. "Now for the first time, two separate programs, LABA and the Theater/Dance Series, are being brought together around a central theme. Through the collaboration with my Associate Artistic Director, David Stallings, we are presenting a season that merges these seemingly two separate worlds that co-existed here at the 14Y into one larger conversation — a Talmudic kind of argument. One necessary theme, OTHER resonated in a world so divided, hostile and fragmented.  In Hebrew we say DAVKA (exactly now or in spite of), which is the moment to find the most humane, ethical, and touching examples of bridging our differences.  We are not afraid to present differences – join us in the dialogue."

Paula Poundstone Headlines the Paramount Theater

Paula Poundstone Headlines the Paramount Theater
Event on 2015-12-04 20:00:00
The Paramount Theater in Charlottesville, VA welcomes comedian Paula Poundstone Friday, December 4th. Thirty two years ago Paula Poundstone climbed on a Greyhound bus and traveled across the country — stopping in at open mic nights at comedy clubs as she went. She went on to become one of our country’s foremost humorists. You can hear her through your laughter as a regular panelist on NPR’s popular rascal of a weekly news quiz show, Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me. Watch for Paula as she lends her distinctive voice to the character “Forgetter Paula” in the new Disney Pixar film “Inside Out” about a young girl Riley who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job. The movie chronicles and the emotional roller coaster that change can bring. Riley’s emotions include; Joy (Amy Poehler,) Fear (Bill Hader,) Anger (Lewis Black,) Disgust (Mindy Kaling,) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith.) “Inside Out” opens nationwide June 19, 2015. Check out the trailer at: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2096673/.

Poundstone tours regularly, performing standup comedy across the country, causing Bob Zany with the Boston Globe to write: “Poundstone can regale an audience for several hours with her distinctive brand of wry, intelligent and witty comedy.” Audience members may put it a little less elegantly: “I peed my pants.”

While there is no doubt that Poundstone is funny, the thing that probably separates her from the pack of comics working today and that has made her a legend among comics and audiences alike is her ability to be spontaneous with a crowd. Poundstone says: “No two shows I do are the same. It's not that I don't repeat material. I do. My shows, when they're good, and I like to think they often are, are like a cocktail party. When you first get there, you talk about how badly you got lost and how hard it was to find parking. Then you tell a story about your kids or what you just saw on the news. You meet some new people and ask them about themselves. Then, some-one says, "Tell that story you used to tell," and then someone on the other side of the room spills a drink, and you mock them. No one ever applauds me when I leave a party, though. I think they high five.”

Paula's interchanges with the audience are never mean or done at a person’s expense. She even manages to handle politics without provoking the pall of disapproval less artful comics have re-ceived.

Her most recent comedy CD, I HEART JOKES: Paula Tells Them in Boston was recorded dur-ing a performance at the Wilbur Theatre in the heart of the city and was released on April fool’s Day 2013. This was a follow up to her successful first CD I HEART JOKES: Paula Tells Them in Maine that was released in 2009.

Over the span of her career, Paula has amassed a list of awards and accolades that stretch the length of a great big tall guy’s arm. She not only shot through the glass ceiling, she never even acknowledged that it was there. Never one to stereotype herself as a ‘female comedian’ or limit herself to comedy from a ‘female’ point of view, in the early 90’s she was the first woman to win the cable ACE for Best Standup Comedy Special and the first woman to perform standup at the prestigious White House Correspondents dinner where she joined the current President as part of the evening’s entertainment.

In November, 2012 in Washington DC, Paula was honored, along with Nina Totenberg, NPR correspondent; David Brooks, New York Times columnist; and Bob Mankoff, New York-er Cartoon Editor, with the 2012 Moment Magazine Creativity Award at their 35th anniversary symposium and dinner, followed by a one-hour panel on the intersection of humor and politics. Just weeks later Paula was hand-picked to interview Calvin Trillin for the Los Angeles-series-darling, Writers Bloc, a series that presents conversations between the featured author and anoth-er interesting thinker.

Paula has starred in comedy specials on HBO and BRAVO, won an Emmy Award, served as "official correspondent" for The Tonight Show during the 1992 Presidential race, pioneered the art of backstage commentary during an Emmy telecast, steps up to the plate for causes she be-lieves in, and is almost always included in any compendium – be it film, television or print, not-ing comedic influences of the 20th/21st century, most recently, We Killed: The Rise of Women in American Comedy (October 2012, Sarah Crichton Books). Paula also appears on "Late Night w/Craig Ferguson" about 3 times a year and she'll do an occasional editorial for NPR's "All Things Considered".

In April 2013 NPR Laughter Therapy (Highbridge Audio) released a 2-CD collection of NPR’s best interviews and stories with “funny folks” including Paula’s Talk of the Nation interview. If it means anything to anyone, she is recognized as one of Comedy Central's 100 greatest stand-ups of all time. Paula won an American Comedy Award for Best Female Standup Comic, and in 2010 she was one of a select group voted into the Comedy Hall of Fame.

Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me is now heard in 5 million homes across the country, including all of the major markets, internationally on NPR Worldwide and on the Internet via podcast. In 2008 it received a Peabody Award for broadcasting excellence. On the show Paula gets to match wits with some of the country’s leading pundits. In May 2013 the show filmed its first Cinecast from New York's Town Hall and Paula was one of the Panelists. The show made its television debut on BBC America with a “2011 Year In Review.” Paula was on that panel as well. Poundstone quickly goes on record about how much she loves being part of the show saying: “I am a proud member of the endorphin production industry. They allow me to say whatever I want on Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me. The panelists are unscripted, so it's perfect for me. I feel like I'm a batter in a batting cage. I get lobbed topics. Sometimes I just watch them go by, but every now and then I get a piece of one. If the others didn't cheat, it would be an almost perfect work experience.”

Paula is also a published author and lecturer. Her hard cover book, There is Nothing In This Book That I Meant To Say (Crown, 2006, with a forward by Mary Tyler Moore) is still in release on audio (Highbridge) and in paperback. Other writing credits include the back page columnist of Mother Jones, The Los Angeles Times, Entertainment Weekly, and Glamour magazine.

Not only a writer, but an avid reader, Paula continues her role for the American Library Associa-tion (ALA) as the Nat'l spokesperson for United for Libraries, their "Friends of Libraries" nation-al network – a citizens support group who work to raise awareness and much needed funds to support their local libraries. Paula has appeared as the headliner at the ALA's annual conference for their Laughs On Us panel the last four years, and to quote Sally Reed, the ALA Nat'l Direc-tor: "…you'd have to come to one of these events to see how adored Paula is by librarians. We love her and it's never repetitive." Paula has hosted many events to great success, including the Art Directors Guild Awards an unprecedented 4 times.

The National Endowment for the Arts recently requested Poundstone to sit down for a chat about the art of comedy and her career. Take a listen: http://arts.gov/audio/paula-poundstone
