"Are you ready?" Jerry
confronts this question from the womb of his favorite restaurant booth
while the months pass by and the son he and his wife Pauline are
expecting grows from the size of a peach to the size of...a baby. As
the due date approaches, can friends and family members help Jerry feel
prepared, or just feel worse, like some un-anonymous sperm donor
terrified of making the transition from being the son of a father to
being the father of a son? Staged just blocks from the titular
restaurant where it is set, the latest play by Jonathan Marc Sherman (Things We Want, Women and Wallace) is sharp, funny, and deeply felt.
Knickerbocker will be presented as part of the 2010-2011 Public LAB Season. Public LAB
is an annual series of new plays that lets New Yorkers see more of the
work they love from The Public in scaled-down productions. Public LAB allows The Public to support more artists, and gives audiences immediate access to new plays in development.
