CT Tuesdays is a forum where new works are work shopped for 3-5 Tuesday nights (and sometimes Wednesdays). Scripts produced in this program have already had a staged reading and have been identified to move forward in the development process. A minimalist production using the set and lighting plot of the current Celebration main stage show, the production's focus remains on the script but now actors have rehearsed for a number of weeks and have memorized their lines. After each Tuesday performance, the audience is invited to participate in a 20 minute talkback with the actors and playwright. The playwright is then encouraged to go over his notes and feedback and make any adjustments before the next performance...or not.
Written by Jason Mitchell. Directed by Jeremy O'Keefe
Cast: Jeffery Self, Daniel Taylor, Kyle David Pierce, Chris Sams and Ben Baur

Sex, Dating, Friendship, and all the blurry lines in between...The Boys Upstairs invites you into the fabulous living room of Josh, Seth, and Ashley. These three Hell’s Kitchen Boys encounter all of the challenges, thrills, disappointments, tops and bottoms that young adult New York life has to offer. Seth is falling in love with his older boyfriend while attempting to seek approval from his single best friends. Ashley feeds on the variety, availability and accessibility of men in Manhattan. Josh finds inspiration from the antics of his two besties and his own humorously disastrous trials with dating and funnels it all into his newest writing concept. Just when these three settle into a rhythm of celebrating life and then analyzing it the next morning, they are all thrown for a loop when their incredibly hot neighbor Eric moves in below them. The "is he or isn't he" question is just on of the many that these city boys ponder with style, scandal, and specialty cocktails!
