The Amoralists are a company who demand much of their artists—so much for skulking in the back of the rehearsal room, clutching a venti latte. Instead, they insist on "a willingness to be uncomfortable," "a willingness to be rattled," "a willingness to bleed, sweat, and cry," and a dozen other stipulations, all of which make working for them sound like the worst blind date ever. Nevertheless, critics and audiences have developed a crush on their brash, messy comedies—two of which are now revived at P.S.122: Pied Pipers of the Lower East Side concerns some East Village communitarians, while Happy in the Poorhouse features shouting matches among Coney Island habitués.
