The Parlor Plays present Penguin Blues by Ethan Phillips

By Nuance Theatre Co. (other events)

6 Dates Through Jul 01, 2018

What does a bitter, self-loathing voice-over actor and a Sister in denial have in common?


A wonderful “dramedy” written in One Act by Ethan Phillips, an accomplished Broadway, film and television actor - probably most recognized for his portrayal of Neelix in Star Trek Voyager.

SYNOPSIS:  When Gordon and Sister Angelita meet in an alcohol rehab center, jokes and misperceptions help uncover what haunts their addictions.  Forgiveness and redemption sometimes comes in the strangest ways and where we least expect it.

What combines food, drink and theater into an exclusive and entertaining two-hour experience? 

(A Theatrical and Culinary Event)

Brought to you by Nuance Theatre Co. and John DeSotelle Studio the Parlor Plays is an intimate-style of theater that incorporates a production of one or two short plays with appetizers and beverages offered before and after the performance.  The idea is derived from the Victorian era where it was common practice to entertain guests with short works, poetry or monologues in the drawing room (Parlor, Living Room) of their homes.

Your ticket includes appetizers plus a complementary glass of wine or a beer (non-alcoholic beverages are also available).  

 Pre-show reception at 7pm, Performance starts at 7:30)        

(Please note:  Our NEW LOCATION is in the legendary Hell’s Kitchen district among a smorgasbord of eateries and boutique shops.  Our Studio/Theatre is in an historic building with no elevators.)
