Chelsea Clark performs in the satirical comedy, A SKETCH OF NEW YORK, August 2017

A satirical comedy show in the vein of classic New York sketch theater, A Sketch of New York mocks the absurdity of our own lives in the capital of the world. Life, love, work, play, and the realities of city living are skewered as we put on stage the absurdities we all live with, and try to paint a picture of what New York nowadays is really like.

And if we can’t paint a full picture in an hour, we’ll at least give you a sketch.

Performing at the Producer’s Club, 358 W. 44th St., NYC;  Friday, August 25 & Saturday, August 26 at 6:00 p.m., Sunday, August 27 at 1 p.m.

Chelsea Clark performs scenes at the Simon Studio's BARD AT THE BAR 2017, an annual event honoring William Shakespeare

You are cordially invited to
Bard @ the Bar
in honor of William Shakespeare and
THE SIMON STUDIO’s 39th Anniversary

Directed by
Roger Hendricks Simon

Friday, June 30th, 8:00 P.M.
16 Gramercy Park South, New York, NY

This annual SIMON STUDIO celebration event is an environmental performance collage –
scenes, songs, music and dance from plays by William Shakespeare,
featuring current studio members, alumni & special guests
from The Players Club, film, Broadway and London stage worlds.

“… an impressive group of scenes, using every inch of the expansive room, as well as audience members, as part of the ambiance… a ‘60’s style street theatre environment, (where) audience members wandered in and out and photographers documented the performance. Strict homage was paid to the Bard’s language, with vivid, highly physicalized portrayals by all. Actors of all shapes, sizes and ages were encouraged to share their talents, eschewing the youth-oriented look of many recent Shakespearean productions. Director Roger Hendricks Simon is to be congratulated for his dedication to the inclusion of all types of talented actors, and the large, enthusiastic crowd obviously agreed.”
