The Third Story may be one of the most unusual traditional plays in New York right now. The play 9is about Peg, a screenwriter
from Hollywood’s golden age who is trying to resurrect her career. When she and her son begin working together to
create a new movie, the stage erupts with fairytales and the mob. Be sure to buy your The
Third Story tickets while they are still available!
The Third Story was written by Charles Busch and is directed by Carle Andress. The story of this mother-and-son screenwriting
team takes place during the Communist scare that took place in Hollywood in the late ‘40s. The story is something
to stimulate the imagination and set the fancy to fight, as the screen-play draws in the unlikely threads of a Queen of the
Mob, a scientist and a Russian Fairytale.
The Third Story is another interesting play from Charles Busch that draws together several different plot lines into one
to create this new play. A fluid set, an unusually unpacked set, and a bit of unlikely-seeming direction takes the musical
to the edge of reason. This is one modern play that will have you standing on your head, and laughing all the way! Be sure
to get your The Third Story tickets today.
