Off-Broadway News 3 New Plays to Premiere Off-Broadway in Repertory at 28th Street Theatre

Emerging Artists Theatre presents Anne Being Frank, Doris Day: My Secret Love, and Sex Work/Sex Play.

Emerging Artists Theatre is bringing three new plays to 28th Street Theatre in repertory this fall. Following their presentation at Emerging Artists Theatre's Spark Theatre Festival NYC, Anne Being FrankDoris Day: My Secret Love, and Sex Work/Sex Play will run September 4-October 29 on a rotating schedule.

Written by Ron ElishaAnne Being Frank stars Alexis Fishman as Anne Frank in a solo show which takes place across three spaces: the secret annex where she hid with her family, Bergen Belsen where she spent her final days, and an unlived future in a New York City publishing house. She's rewritten her entire diary in "a quest to tell the truth" and leave behind the optimism and innocence of her first diary. But the literary elite have a different opinion. Amanda Brooke Lerner directs the show which comes with a content warning for containing "disturbing material including harsh language, gun shots, sexual violence, and degradation."

Paul AdamsDoris Day: My Secret Love features 14 famous songs by the music icon in this work about Day and her life. Tiffan Borelli plays Day as she deals with the conflicting desires to make others happy, find someone who truly cared about her, and take back control of her career from her husbands. David Beck plays Les Brown opposite Borelli under the direction of Melissa Attebery.

Caytha Jentis' Sex Work/Sex Play is follows five people in Brooklyn who find themselves in humorously uncomfortable situations. A divorced mother and her college-aged daughter, a suburban husband and wife, and a male porn star are all just trying to find their way through all the facets of live—including sex. The cast stars Amber Gatlin, Josh Hyman, Kerry McGann, Christopher Trindade, and Constance Zaytoun. Rosie Gunther directs.
