My nights are suddenly — and happily — filled with plays written or produced by friends. Like “Wink,” written by Neil Koeningsberg, who was once a legendary Hollywood publicist and then a brilliant talent manager. In his new incarnation, he’s writing about a teenager who’s got life challenges — homelessness and gender confusion — and an ex-A list actor doing B movies in Hollywood. Out of this unlikely alliance comes a transformative bond. Unconventional? Unlikely? Not at all: Neil Koeningsberg is reliably smart and creative. ”Wink” runs from April 13 to May 7. Thursday through Saturday@ 8 PM, Sunday @3 PM, at Theater for the New City, 155 First Ave. For information and tickets, click here.
