A young navy corpsman from Arkansas hits New York City during Fleet Week, spending the evening with an affluent but dysfunctional Upper East Side couple who has volunteered to host a sailor – only they’ve forgotten. Richard is excessively intellectual, obsessing about his weaknesses and how to express his masculinity in the modern world. He has no job but spends his days thinking about making artsy independent films. Patricia runs an art gallery and longs to recapture the excitement and possibilities of her youth. After years of childless marriage, this union is nearing dissolution. Through the evening, the couple voice their failing love, while the sailor shares some of his small town fears and frustrations about becoming an adult. When sparks fly from the clash of Arkansas innocence and Manhattan sophistication , all three begin to find new and healthier perspectives on their lives. Someone described this show as “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf ?”meets “Forrest Gump.“ Adopt a Sailor is at once hilarious, brutal, and genuinely tender while examining the political and cultural conflicts of our current society.
Out Front On Main, Inc. is stoked to present THE MARIJUANA-LOGUES, written by Arj Barker, Doug Benson and Tony Camin. THE MARIJUANA-LOGUES is a “hit” unlike anything you have ever seen. Catch the buzz as performers riff on the rites and rituals of pot and regale the crowd with the highs and lows of marijuana. Told from all points of view from hazy to highbrow, THE MARIJUANA-LOGUES never loses the pot…er point, demonstrating that the stories surrounding the bud are as varied as those who indulge. THE MARIJUANA-LOGUES sets herb centerstage, delving into fact and fiction, myths and misnomers alike. Not since the 60s has there been such an exploration of this oft-taboo but totally titillating topic. Watch a sneak preview of the original production below:
Disclaimer: This production does not glorify drug use. Rather, it illustrates that cannabis culture is a thing of substance, humor and creativity.
We brought the new year in with style at Out Front On Main!
