Looking for a great play to see over this week? Look no further than the June Havoc Theatre. Don’t miss Patrice Bell in the last five performances of Office Politics.
OFFICE POLITICS, an explosive new play by Marcy Lovitch, opened Thursday, June 11th at the June Havoc Theatre, 312 West 36th Street (just west of Eighth Ave.)
In OFFICE POLITICS, when a white male co-worker makes an off-the-cuff racially insensitive remark to his boss’s black female assistant, what seems like a harmless joke snowballs, suddenly catapulting the ad sales office of a women’s magazine into turmoil. Threats are made, loyalties tested and contrasting beliefs about power, race and class surface, resulting in an explosion of shocking reveals, lies and accusations, ultimately leaving their department in utter shreds.
Under the direction of Aimee Todoroff, the cast of OFFICE POLITICS features Patrice Bell (Six of One), Josh Doucette (IRREVERSIBLE), Philip Guerette (American Genius), Carson Lee (A SERIOUS MAN), Molly Lovell (AND MISS REARDON DRINKS A LITTLE), Maria Wolf (THE BALCONY), and Nicholas De Sibio (WORKING OUT WITH LEONA ).
Playwright Marcy Lovitch wrote and acted in her one-woman show, DIRTY LAUNDRY, which she performed in the first and second FringeNYC, at HERE and Philadelphia’s Walnut Street Studio Theater. Her plays A BROOKLYN ROMANCE and ODE TO BRAD premiered at Ensemble Studio Theatre, and A HOLLYWOOD ENDING was developed at Primary Stages.
Set design for Office Politics is by Sandy Yaklin, costume design by Deanna R Frieman, lighting design by Joshua Benghiat, and sound design by Daniel Spitaliere.
The last five performances play this Wednesday & Thursday at 7:30 PM, Friday & Saturday at 8 PM, with a matinee Saturday at 3 PM through this Saturday June 20th. Tickets are $18 and are available through www.SmartTix.com.
