Richard Maxwell Event

The Kitchen and Performance Space 122 present the New York premiere of The Evening by celebrated playwright-director Richard Maxwell. The Evening is the first installment of a Divine Comedy-inspired triptych that charts a journey across landscapes, toward redemption. This elegiac and musical work concerns three archetypes: a fighter, a corrupt manager, and a prostitute, as they clash and reckon with one another in a remote dive bar:

"I like this place, I'm not going to lie. Can't really think of any better place to be. Where can you go when you want to get away? The city doesn't let you run away to just anywhere so go where you need to be when you just want to hang out..."

With Cammisa Buerhaus, Jim Fletcher, Brian Mendes, James Moore, Andie Springer, and David Zuckerman.

March 12–28, 8pm
Tickets $25

The performance on March 15th will be followed by a talk back with Richard Maxwell moderated by artist Malik Gaines (of My Barbarian).

The performance on March 25th will be followed by a talk back with Richard Maxwell moderated by Jay Sanders with introduction by Tim Griffin.

Richard Maxwell/New York City Players: The Evening is co-presented by The Kitchen and Performance Space 122 and was commissioned by the 2014 Spalding Gray Award (Walker Art Center, On The Boards, Performance Space 122 and The Andy Warhol Museum), supported in part by an award through the National Endowment for the Arts. The Evening is a co-production of Kunsten FESTIVAL des Arts, with additional generous support provided by Greene Naftali Gallery and The Kitchen. This presentation is made possible with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with the city council and the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and with additional support from the Axe-Houghton Foundation.

Instead, it came to be sim...Read On
