Tickets On Sale Now!
Casting Notice Below

Don't miss the Long Island premier of the Off-Broadway play, October 2024!


Mark, a young gay man and professional dancer, shares a Sutton Place Apartment with Stan, an interior designer. On the hunt for true love, Mark rejects an opportunity with fellow dancer Rick, and Cooper, an older straight friend who Mark secretly dreams about. When he finds himself in what he believes is unrequited love, the only fulfillment Mark finds is in his dreams, where he enjoys private intimate dances under a waning gibbous moon.


"A Waning Gibbous Moon" is a romantic comedy from award-winning playwright Joe Marshall. It's a play with integrated dance, a full expression of dialogue and movement, where the dancing pushes the narrative forward and is an integral part of the overall production.

"A Waning Gibbous Moon" originally opened Off-Broadway at The Players' Theatre in NYC on December 5, 2019.

Written and Directed by Joe Marshall

Choreography by Renee Cerchia-Cohn

It's August 2021 in New York City, one year after the COVID lockdown. Following CDC guidance due to an uptick in positive cases, Mayor Bill de Blasio announces that masks will be required beginning August 16th. After already being isolated for months, four gay friends meet for an afternoon of cocktails, where the isolation quickly blurs the lines between love, sex, lies, jealousy, friendship and murder.
