“…fire-breathing…[a] probing, intense portrait of lives behind bars…whenever it appears that JESUS is settling into familiar territory, it slides right beneath expectations into another, fresher direction. It has the courage of its intellectual restlessness…[JESUS HOPPED THE ‘A’ TRAIN] has been written in flame.” —NY Times.


Next FREE event in the Play Reading Series:

Side Man
by Warren Leight

Sunday, June 10 at 7:00 pm
Free Event at M.E.T at 933 – Black Box

Side Man is the comic and tender story of Clifford, a young man who looks back on his family life; prior to leaving home, Clifford reconciles the role that he has long played as parent to his parents. Smoothly gliding between present and past, the play tells the story of a time before the Beatles and Elvis, when jazzmen were heroic like ballplayers and there was no shortage of Saturday-night gigs. Side Man is both a tribute to the men whose lives were their music and a sober look at a family drama left in the wake of that passion.

This is a free event, though donations are gladly accepted (we have some costs due to rights and scripts, though the actors and directors donate their time).
