In the opening scene, two Supreme Beings plan the beginning of the world with the relish of two slightly sadistic suburban wives decorating a living room. Once they’ve decided on the color scheme of the races, a little concerned that white people will feel slighted being such a boring color, they create sex and the sexes. Afraid women will have too many advantages, the Beings decide to make childbirth painful and to give men enormous egos as compensation.
The audience is whisked through the outrageous sketches where a dozen or so actresses play men and women struggling through the common rituals of modern life. This is a humorous show that pokes fun at women and is also thought provoking. It looks at the human condition from a feminist perspective. It deals with gender issues and women’s choices, but this is a man-friendly show. With boundless humor, Parallel Lives reexamines the ongoing quest to find parity and love in a contest handicapped by capricious gods — or in this case, goddesses.
Ticket Purchase and Reservation Information
“Walk-ins” are always welcome but we recommend that you take advantage of one of several options we offer for purchasing or reserving tickets in advance.
The box office opens 45 minutes prior to curtain and tickets previously reserved or purchased with a credit card for that performance are picked up then. If paying by check, make it out to Friends of the North Castle Public Library, Inc. or FNCPL, Inc..
To avoid double bookings, we request that if you reserve by phone, then do future communications by phone. Likewise, if you purchase or reserve online, then do future communications by e-mail to email@example.com.
- Tickets may be purchased online here with your credit card. We accept Visa, Master Card and Discover Card and you get to choose your own seats! If you can’t make it to the performance, let us know in advance and we will be happy to swap your tickets for another performance. But because of fees we pay on all credit card transactions, we regrettably cannot offer refunds.
- Tickets may be reserved in advance and paid for on the day of the performance by filling out and submitting this online reservation request form.
If you do not receive a confirmation e-mail, you might have entered your e-mail address incorrectly. Do not submit a new reservation request form. Instead, send us an e-mail from the e-mail account you think you used telling us your name and letting us know that you are missing a reservation confirmation. We will investigate and get back to you.
If for some reason you cannot make it to the performance, please e-mail us as early as possible so that we can release your reservation. We reserve the right to make available to the general public any reservations that have not been picked up at least 10 minutes prior to curtain. Thank you for understanding.
- Tickets may be reserved in advance and paid for on the day of the performance by phoning (914) 861-2049. We offer this option primarily for those who do not have computer access. If you are reading this, that is probably not you and we much prefer that you use the above better-in-every-way online reservation form.
Leave your full name (please spell your last name), performance date, number and type of tickets and a phone number in case we need to contact you. We regret that we do not have the resources to be able to confirm phone reservations with call backs. So if you need a confirmation, then purchase or reserve using one of our online methods.
Please phone us as early as possible if you cannot keep a reservation.
We stop doing online reservations and ticket sales for a given performance up to two hours prior to curtain. So if you are trying to purchase or reserve tickets online for the current day’s performance and find that the performance does not appear as one of the choices, you may still purchase tickets at the box office. Likewise, we cannot guarantee that we will hear your phone reservation request if made within two hours of a performance. But the hall is large and the odds of our finding you excellent seats are great.
