Wolf Larsen has also recently completed a collection of shorter plays entitled: It All Happened in a Coffee Shop in Amsterdam. Each one of these shorter plays is a different hallucination. The characters in these plays are as bizarre as life itself! Each play is so intense, explosive, and visionary that both audiences and readers alike will never experience a dull moment!
Here is one of Wolf Larsen's short plays:
play title: "Cum Inside of Me! Cum Inside of Me Please!! I Want to Feel It!!!"

Off Off Broadway
(The following is from Wikipedia)
Off Off Broadway refers to plays or musicals performed in New York City in smaller theatres than (professional) Broadway productions or (still professional) off-Broadway productions. Off-off-Broadway theaters are defined as theaters that have fewer than 100 seats.
The shows can range from quite professional and successful productions by established artists like Richard Foreman's Ontological-Hysteric Theatre in the East Village, or The Flea Theater in Tribeca, to extremely small amateur performances all over the City.
An off-off-Broadway production that features members of Actors Equity is called an Equity Showcase production. The Union maintains very strict rules about working in such productions, including restrictions on price, the length of the run and rehearsal times. Professional actors' participation in showcase productions is not infrequent, and in fact comprises the bulk of stage work for the majority of New York actors.
Off-off-Broadway developed in the early 1960s as a reaction to off-Broadway, which had, in the estimation of many in the New York theater community, grown conventional and safe.
Among the first venues for what would soon be called "off-off-Broadway" (a term supposedly coined by critic Jerry Tallmer of the Village Voice) were coffeehouses in Greenwich Village, particularly the Caffe Cino, operated by the eccentric Joe Cino, who early on took a liking to actors and playwrights and agreed to let them stage plays there without bothering to read the plays first, or to even find out much about the content. Also integral to the rise of off-off-Broadway were Ellen Stewart at La MaMa, and Al Carmines at the Judson Poets' Theater, located at Judson Memorial Church. (from Wikipedia)

Off Broadway plays or musicals are performed in New York City in smaller theatres than Broadway, but larger than Off-Off-Broadway, productions. Off-Broadway theatres (venues) are those with 100 to 499 seats. The classification of theatres is governed by language in Actors' Equity contracts, rather than by whether the theatre has a Broadway address. Generally these productions housed in off-Broadway theatres are less expensive, less publicized, less well-known and feature less-famous performers. The smaller scale often allows more experimental, challenging work to be presented. Many groups which produce off-Broadway shows are non-profit rather than commercial producers, meaning they can more easily afford to take chances on plays which might not be commercial hits; however, they still have to ensure enough interest in their plays to have a large enough subscriber base to keep them financially sound. Some commercial productions have found a profitable niche in Off-Broadway venues which allows long runs in their original theatres. It is not uncommon for shows staged successfully off-Broadway to later have a run on Broadway. For instance, the musicals Godspell, Avenue Q, Rent, Hair, and Little Shop of Horrors, and the plays Doubt and I Am My Own Wife were initially shown in New York off-Broadway. However, some productions may run successfully for several years in off-Broadway venues; examples are Stomp, Blue Man Group, Perfect Crime and Naked Boys Singing. The Fantasticks, the longest-running play in New York theatre history, spent its 40-year run off-Broadway. (from Wikipedia)
