About The New Century - Off Broadway

Show Info


The New Century is a funny and outrageous comedy, but it doesn’t stop there. Mr. Rudnick is in a provocative mood, and the resulting work, set in New York City in the present day, raises questions not easily answered. Comprised of four short plays, The New Century is an original new work that culminates in an unlikely meeting between Helene, the self-proclaimed “most loving mother of all time” to her three gay children; the flamboyant Mr. Charles, incognito in New York City after being banned for being “too gay;” Shane, Mr. Charles partner; and Barbara Ellen, a Midwesterner on a visit to New York after her son’s death.

THE NEW CENTURY, Plays by Paul Rudnick, Directed by Nicholas Martin with Peter Bartlett, Mike Doyle, Jayne Houdyshell, Linda Lavin and Christy Pusz.
