The Rose Tattoo by Tennesssee Williams
The Nakd Stage – A Play Reading Series, tickets: $10
Postponed to Saturday, February 21 at 8 pm
Winner of the 1951 Tony Award for Best Play. One of the author’s most beautiful and powerful plays. Set among a colony of Sicilian fisherfolk on the American Gulf Coast, it is the story of a woman for whom love was stronger than death.
Serafina delle Rose is a restless widow whose intense and absorbing instinct for love drives everything before it. The figure of this extraordinary woman dominates the small town where she and her friends are living and embodies the exultation and danger of unbridled passion. Her story, and that of the lover she chooses and the daughter she denies, are forged into a play of power, humanity and soaring emotion.
The White Plains Performing Arts Center is inaugurating a play reading series (actors with scripts in hand) of, in order, the Tony Award-winners for “Best Play” since the award’s creation in 1948. We will be presenting one reading a month. Tickets for these readings will be only $10 each.
We’ve chosen the given format as a device to rekindle memories of great, award-winning plays that serve as the foundation for contemporary theatre but which may not get produced much anymore because they are perceived as outdated or “unknown” as well as newer works down the line that today’s audiences may not have been able to see. These stories warrant being told and, in this light, we get to focus on the powerful words and intentions of amazing playwrights without encumbering and costly production value (i.e. no sets, costumes or props).
It's all about the words.

The Amazing Max, bursting with striking visual magic, comedy and loads of audience participation, will be on-stage at the White Plains Performing Arts Center on Saturday, February 28 at 2:00 pm. Magician Max Darwin makes objects appear out of thin air, defies the laws of physics, and performs miracles inches from spectator’s faces. “An awesome and hilarious live magic show” PBS Kids. “Max Darwin is indeed amazing” Time Out Kids. This show is the wackiest, most interactive, highest energy magic show for families today. The Amazing Max selects all of his assistants at random from the audience, and each adds a unique element to the show. “His ability to astound is something to see.” (The Huffington Post).
The Amazing Max, is a perfect way to spend time with the entire family!
Max Darwin was born to perform. He began charming audiences at the young age of 5 months, traveling all over the United States alongside his parents who were professional street performers specializing in clowning, mime, juggling, and magic. Throughout the years, Max has emerged as one of the most sought-after magic artists in the country. He performs hundreds of shows a year with a client roster including such notable celebrities as Uma Thurman, Diana Ross, Chazz Palminteri, Ethan Hawke, Jeremy Sisto, Tommy Hilfiger and Hank Azaria.
He can be seen as a guest artist and magic consultant on Season 3 & 4 of “Brain Games,” airing on the National Geographic Channel. His TV credits also include “Black Box” and hosting the hit Nickelodeon show “Game Farm!” He has also appeared in various national TV commercials for products like Axe Body Spray, Verizon, Bank of America, and Coca-Cola.
In 2011 Max created “The Amazing Max and The Box Of Interesting Things”, which has successfully toured and played Off-Broadway over the last four years. The show has received rave reviews from The New York Times, Huffington Post, PBS Kids, and many more. It was also nominated as “Best Family Show” by the Off-Broadway Alliance.
Max has also released an instructional magic video, “Magic in Minutes,” where Max teaches kids ages 5 & up how to fill their everyday lives with wonder and perform magic with ordinary objects found right in their own home.
