CHRISTMAS IN HELL, Assistant Director (December 4th-December 30th)
Christmas in Hell, with book, music, and lyrics by Gary Apple (“The Simpsons”), Directed by Bill Castellino is a wild, irreverent, and surprisingly touching musical comedy about the absurd lengths we’ll go to for the ones we love. After award-winning appearances at the NY Fringe Festival and NYMF, Hell now arrives at The York for a full production, way more naughty than nice.
WORLD CLASSIC, Director (December 5th)
“World Classic” is what happens when you take the quintessential American domestic drama away from white suburbia. It explores the identity issues created by assimilation through the eyes of two generations of an immigrant family. Like “The Humans” or “August Osage County” before it, it all takes place during one night, but unlike them, this play focus on those that had to sacrifice their homeland and in the process, compromise their heritage. www.ParsnipShip.com
