"Leisure, Labor, Lust" Premiere @ The Tank, NYC by Stephanie Regina

Leisure, Labor, Lust is a three-part triptych presented in one evening. Inspired by the work of Edith Wharton and Jacob Riis, this queer love story spans turn-of-the-century New York from the horrors of mental illness to the paralysis of the immigrant to the impossibility of being closeted to a gothic romance. Leisure, Labor, Lust is a contemporary theater piece about everything America was and still is, cleverly disguised in a corset and gown. *Please note this play contains nudity. Not appropriate for children under 14.




The reviews are in for "CasablancaBox" premiere at HERE!!! by Stephanie Regina

Andy Webster from The New York Times

"...Stephanie Regina, who doubles as Irene, a studio messenger, describes the storm clouds of World War II... The most impressive performers here are the most naturalistic: Ms. Regina’s Irene is put upon but resourceful..."


Michael Giltz from Huffington Post 

"Stephanie Regina pulls off a complex turn as the Girl Friday Irene and the narrator filling in the plot of both the movie and its production history."


Times Square Chronicles

"Standing next to [Michael Curtiz] is the ever-present assistant, Irene, the stressed out girl messenger (a high energy fireball Stephanie Regina), who also plays double duty as the old-fashioned magnificently voiced film narrator."

"CasablancaBox" Premiere: Off-Broadway at HERE Arts in SOHO by Stephanie Regina

Stephanie plays the assistant/girl messenger Irene in Sara and Reid Farrington's CasablancaBox at HERE Arts.

Runs April 5-29 2017       Wed-Sat 8:30pm, Sat & Sun 4pm

CasablancaBox lifts the veil of the eponymous classic film to reimagine the stories behind the legends. Rife with glamour, war, censorship, sexism, racism, addiction and the refugee crisis of 1940s Hollywood, CasablancaBox is madcap and affecting, moving and political, romantic and relevant. With an intricately woven multi-narrative script by Sara Farrington, this new theatrical work is a transformative “making of” tribute to the movie you thought you knew. 

Leisure. Labor, Lust by Sara Farrington in Lenox, MA by Stephanie Regina

Stephanie performed the role of Lucy in Sara Farrington's "Leisure, Labor, Lust" (under the direction of Marina McClure) at Edith Wharton's estate in Lenox, MA.



Written by Sara Farrington

Directed by Marina McClure

Leisure, Labor, Lust is a theatrical and psychological journey through the ravages of poverty and the oppressions of affluence in New York City in 1907. This is the story of Grace Hunter, a brilliant woman with an insatiable hunger for romance, and her tortured husband Harry, a closeted man rapidly losing his grip on reality.

The play is inspired by elements from Edith Wharton’s most famous (and lesser known) works, as well as a torrid affair she had as a middle-aged woman with a younger man, Morton Fullerton. The play is also inspired by Mrs. Wharton's husband Teddy Wharton and his struggle with mental illness.

The play exists over the course of three days in 1907 jumping around in time from 1907 to 1887 to 1897 and back again. It is broken into three acts: Leisure, which exists in Grace Hunter’s boudoir, and was most recently performed in the intimate environs of Edith Wharton’s real life boudoir, Lust, which exists in Harry Hunter’s bedroom and performed in Edith Wharton’s bedroom and Labor, still in process, which exists in Wharton's own servant's kitchen.

THE RETURN Premieres at the MET Museum by Stephanie Regina

"The Return" by Reid Farrington premiered at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on July 10, 2015.

You can catch Stephanie in the gallery from 10am-5pm Sundays-Thursdays and 10am-9pm Fridays & Saturdays.


THE RETURN at the Metropolitan Museum of Art by Stephanie Regina

Stephanie will be a playing the role of Docent at the MET for The Return, created by Reid Farrington.

The Return celebrates the historically arduous and scientifically groundbreaking restoration of Tullio Lombardo’s Adam (ca. 1490–95), one of the greatest sculptures of the High Renaissance, which was recently completed by the Met’s conservators and scientists. This revolutionary interactive work invites visitors to dynamically investigate the decadelong reconstruction. One can probe aspects such as the statue’s fall from its podium ten years ago as well as its poetic parallel to Biblical Adam’s fall from grace. Hidden cameras, speakers, and microphones bring the statue to life, leading visitors through the work’s extraordinary story, and a digital “window” displays the restored Adam. In this unique setting, guests can speak directly to the figure and pose questions about his creation, travels, and return to the gallery.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Tullio Lombardo's Adam: A Masterpiece Restored, on view November 11, 2014–July 2015.
