THE STORY: Hearts Like Fists is a superhero noir comedy about the dangers of love. The city’s heart beats with fear: Doctor X is sneaking into apartments and injecting lovers with a lethal poison. Lisa’s heart beats with hope: now that she’s joined the elite Crimefighters, maybe she can live a life with meaning. And every beat of Peter’s wounded heart brings him closer to death, but he’s designing an artificial replacement that will never break. Can the Crimefighters stop Doctor X? Do Peter and Lisa have a chance at love? And who is the girl with a face like a plate?

2. Then it's a slightly tweaked version of the experimental movement piece UBU we did at SoloNOVA festival at TerraNOVA last year.  It sold really well so they put it in their season.

UBU
presented by

terraNOVA Collective, One-Eighth & IRT
Written by Adam Szymkowicz
Directed and Performed by Daniel Irizarry


December 4 -- 16 , Tuesday -- Sunday (Mondays dark) at 8:30pm
Ticket Price: $20.00 At IRT: 154 Christopher st. #3B (third floor)
-- Running time 1 hour.


Inspired by Ubu Roi, UBU is the King of the Great Expanding Universe who will allow a privileged few into his mansion to watch him eat steak. Along the way, he may play music, read you poetry and tell of his lost loves and purchased politicians – it all depends on the mood of the King. Join this kinetic romp through the absurdist world of the most powerful CEO in the universe.
Don't miss the relaunch of UBU, back from a successful run for the 2012 soloNOVA Arts Festival at the New Ohio Theater.

Martin Denton from nytheatre.com said it was:
“…a monster of mammoth size and ravenous appetite, sort of like the Tasmasian Devil on steroids by way of Monty Python's Mr. Creosote...”

And Olivia Jane Smith from New York Theatre review said:
‘…Irizarry’s singular stage presence and the productions beautifully grotesque little world make this…expanding universe worth a good look.’
