Blog Hijack: An introduction to Heat Transfer at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe!

Alright, guys. Matisse, Haley, and Kaela here. Some truth bombs about to be thrown. First here are some gratuitous selfies of us:

To be frank, we had some undeveloped ideas about what a blog takeover would entail. We thought it’d be a little more badass, perhaps even like a ruthless overthrowing and infiltration of the system. Like the secret service but sexier and with tightly fitting blazers. We also were hoping to slander this website with the most profanity the internet has seen. It has been explained to us that we were wrong and we cannot do those things. But it’s okay, because being polite and considerate is also really cool.

The being said, we are extremely excited to tell you about our new play, An Introduction to Heat Transfer! We are equally excited to tell you THERE WILL BE A BAR!

After sold-out runs in Boston and Los Angeles (shameless plug), An Introduction to Heat Transfer premieres in NYC at the Nuyorican Poets Café. THERE WILL BE A BAR!

Roommates Lila Albright and Emma Perkins have very different ideas about how they’ll get through their twenties. Emma has a plan; Lila’s plan is…she has none. An Introduction to Heat Transfer explores the confusion of being a twenty-something and the fundamentals of true friendship. THERE WILL BE A BAR!

Here are some nice quotes from reviews because we really want you to come:

Total Theater LA praised the “warmth and humanity of the play” as well as its “raunchy humor”, adding that “Jakobson, Rose, and Shaw have injected a fresh burst of enegery and creativity into the L.A. theater scene.”

An Introduciton to Heat Transfer showcases the superlatively talented trio of young theater artists whose work has already captured the imagination of audiences in Boston and LA,” says Daniel Gallant, Executive Director of the Nuyorican Poets Café.

We also will be distributing cleverly packaged/free condoms because we promote safe sex but also my mom thinks they are very “hip and totally of our generation.”

An Introduction to Heat Transfer opens Tuesday, December 1st and runs for 7 performances at the Nuyorican Poets Café (236 East 3rd Street, between Avenues B and C in Manhattan). House opens at 7:30pm every night, except on the 9th- we open the house at 7:15pm!
