It's not too early to buy tickets to Nerve. Packawallop Productions presents the world premiere of NERVE, a new play by Adam Szymkowicz. Directed by Scott Ebersold, the production stars Susan O'Connor and Travis York. Previews begin May 16th at Urban Stages with opening night scheduled for Sunday, May 21st. NERVE is a dark romantic comedy about falling into a relationship on the first date. Elliot has never had an online date before... at least one that showed up. Susan has had plenty but would prefer not to discuss them. When they meet in a bar one night, all their neuroses come out. So do a puppet, some modern dance and surprising twist or two. The production features sets by Nicholas Vaughn (winner, Best Set Design FringeNYC 2005), costumes by Jessica Watters, lighting by Josh Bradford, sound by Brian Hallas and choreography by Wendy Seyb. NERVE runs May 16 - June 3, Tuesdays at 8pm, Saturdays at 3pm and Sundays at 4pm with an added show Weds June 24 at 8pm. Urban Stages is located at 259 West 30th Street (between 7th and 8th Aves., accessible from the #1 train at 28th Street). Tickets are $15, available at 212-868-4444 or www.smarttix.com.
