We spend a lot of time in the stacks of the New York Society Library, truffling up fabulous, illustrated, long-forgotten volumes. Like broken shells on the beach, they get us right in the ol’ bread basket. How to save them from permanent obscurity? HOW’S ABOUT WE RESURRECT ‘EM AS A MONTHLY LOW-BUDGET NYC VARIETY SHOW???
Treat as Urgent and Get Back to Me takes its text directly from a Facetime Conversation with a friend who undergoing treatment for a brain tumor and spam emails that leverage cancer and other tales of woe to prey on the credulous and compassionate. No penises will be enlarged, but a breed of mutant puppets will be metastasized from a trio of spectra nurses live onstage.

With Marjorie Duffield, Chris Lindsay-Abaire, Stephen O’Rourke, Vanessa Petrarca and Stephanie Summerville

In response to a slew of dust ups regarding audience members using their cell phones to text, take photos and screw around on social media during live theatrical performances, the cast and crew of Zamboni Godot invites you to buy a ticket and bring your sketchbook and drawing tools to our Wednesday night performance at The Brick.
Cell Phone Brain keeps you at arm’s length from the action.
Sketchbook Brain draws you in.
We did this in 2015 for Fawnbook and it was a lot of fun for all involved.
The Zamboner Chorus will be posing onstage for your long drawing pleasure prior to curtain, after which the 80 minute performance will proceed as usual… there are moments of stillness and moments of activity.
Zamboni Godot is a raucous mid-life meditation on the comedy of existence, the hell of long term relationships and the play where “nothing happens, nobody comes, nobody goes…”
