Baby You Give Good Art: Theater Edition, Part I

I want to take a minute to give a shout out to my friend Michael I. Walker's new play, LETTER FROM ALGERIA, that is being put up by Ground UP Productions at the June Havoc Theater, 312 W. 36th St. NYC. This world premiere production is directed by Adam Fitzgerald and stars Rufus Collins, Amanda Jane Cooper, Patrick Murney and JD Taylor.

The play centers on three young Americans who meet while studying abroad in Belgium. They strike up a friendship with a wealthy older gentleman, who gives them access to the luxurious ex-pat lifestyle of their dreams. Each character has secrets he or she is desperate to conceal while reinventing themselves abroad. As these secrets are revealed, the relationships between the four become increasingly strained and the tense atmosphere building throughout the play erupts in a shocking finale.

I'm very happy for Michael. Hooray for playwrights! This play is definitely worth checking out. Letter from Algeria is running now through November 20, 2010. Performances are Tuesday - Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 2pm. Tickets $20 (instead of $25) with code "face" at or (212) 352-3101
. Go see it!
