Every time we stroll down Avenue A it seems another long familiar restaurant or shop has shuttered its storefront for good. But the Metropolitan Playhouse continues to survive and celebrate the neighborhood that houses it. This year it presents new installments of the East Village Chronicles and Alphabet City Monologues.
Tuesdays-Sundays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 3 p.m. Starts: Aug. 4. Continues through Aug. 23, 2009
