Live Show: Revival

Apr 15 2015 @ 7:00PM

Our next switched-up storytelling show, REVIVAL, is just one week away!

We reached out to emerging artist, Rose Eddins, and asked her to draw an original image inspired by our show’s theme.

As you can see, the result is cherubic and delightful. NYTI’s own Kelly Jean Fitzsimmons asked her niece, Rose, what inspired her to create her masterpiece, here’s what she had to say:

I don’t know. I just thought of it.

Join us on April 15th at 7pm to celebrate and support Jimmy’s No. 43 reopening! Click here for details and to RSVP.

Meet the Uproar Storytellers

Nov 18 2014 @ 7:00PM

Well, here we are. It’s somehow mid-November?! Pretty soon we’ll be tucking in to a turkey (or tofurky or whatever your preference is) dinner with relations and friends, having to negotiate thorny topics like #TaylorSwift and #Feminism and #TheWarOnChristmas without completely alienating our table mates,and then drawing straws for who’ll be the muscle when rolling up on a Black Friday sale. Which is all a lead-in to the minefield that is December, with awkward office holiday parties and end-of-year malaise and the promise of “quality family time” and oh mercy. We are on the brink of that territory, oh yes, but before we slide headfirst into the season, we offer you our next storytelling joint of 2014: Uproar. And it will be uproarious indeed. These stories run the gamut from heart-stirring to outré. Think of this show as a safe space and final chance to engage with words and feeelings that aren’t explicitly motivated by holiday insanity!

And with that rather ominous intro, let’s meet our Uproar storytellers. (Seriously, how can you go wrong with this talented slate of writer/performers?)

Noah Diamond spent years researching and adapting I’ll Say She Is, the lost Marx Brothers musical of 1924, and played the role of Groucho Marx in the show at Marxfest and FringeNYC. I’ll Say She Is will return in 2015. Other credits, as author, songwriter, performer, and/or producer, include Groucho on the Air, Travesties of 2012, Moral Value Meal, and Life After Bush. He is the author of the book 400 Years in Manhattan, based on his stage show. In 2013, he wrote and illustrated the daily comic strip Love Marches On, set in Times Square in 1925 and 1975. Discover true happiness at noahdiamond.com.

Merritt Minnemeyer is an educator, writer, performer and advocate. She holds a BFA in Acting from NYU and has nearly 20 years experience teaching and producing theater in and outside of New York. She is most passionate about employing those skills in the social justice arena, and is currently pursuing a Masters in Humanistic/Multicultural Education at SUNY New Paltz. Most recently she founded Tipsy Gazelle, LLC with a focus on developing a community arts space in a 200 year old home in Beacon, NY where she resides with her three children. Merritt is deeply grateful for and honored to work with NYTI.

Minna Proctor is an editor and essayist. Her first book, Do You Hear What I Hear? came out in 2005. She has published a number of translations from Italian, including the award-winning Love in Vain: The Short Stories of Federigo Tozzi. Her essays and reviews have been published in Conjunctions, BookForum, BOMB, The Nation, Aperture, NPR.org, American Scholar, The New York Times Book Review, Time Out, New York, and others. She teaches in the Creative Writing Program at Fairleigh Dickinson University and is the Editor of The Literary Review. She is currently writing a collection of linked personal essays.

Lyric tenor Peter W. Tinaglia is a recent graduate of the master’s program in voice at Manhattan School of Music. He was seen as Fatty in MSM’s Spring 2013 opera Aufstieg und Fall der Stadt Mahagonny and was featured in MSM’s Spring 2013 musical revue Side by Side by Sondheim. Also while at MSM, Peter participated in the Opera Scenes program, Mr. Ken Merrill’s seminar on the music of Kurt Weill from 1927-1933, and the American Musical Theatre Ensemble’s production of Ragtime. Favorite opera scene work includes Alfredo (La Traviata), Pinkerton (Madama Butterfly), Edgardo (Lucia di Lammermoor), and Don Ottavio (Don Giovanni). Favorite regional opera and operetta credits include The Rape of Lucretia, Così fan tutte, Les Contes d’Hoffmann, Kismet, and The Great Waltz. Peter is a proud graduate of Northwestern University (B.A.) and Boston University (M.S.). In addition to performing, Peter maintains a private voice studio in New York City. He also works as a non-profit project manager and teaches introductory project management courses online at Boston University.
