Surprise your Ma to see Theater of the Apes resurrect CHILDHOOD, a 106-year-old book by Alice Meynell, as the next installment in our monthly New York City variety series, NECROMANCERS OF THE PUBLIC DOMAIN. Its one and only performance is the day after Mother’s Day.
Oh hi. Here’s what’s for lunch, compliments of Janet McKenzie Hill, author of the Up-to-Date Waitress, which Necromancers of the Public Domain is turning into a 1-night-only NYC variety show at The Tank on March 11 at 8p.
Thanks to all who’ve helped turn this cockamamie idea into an ongoing concern, especially our friends at The Tank, The New York Society Library, and all the game New Yorkers who’ve turned out to see an ever-changing line up of musicians, comedians, puppeteers, monologists, anthropologists, teenaged stage combatants, clowns, rappers, neo-burlesquers, and cartoonists spin aged books into variety show gold!
Hey friends! The Drama Bookshop is falling victim to rising NYC rents, and while we’re rooting for them to rise again in another location, let’s take the opportunity to hobnob with other Off-Off-Broadway glitterati at a FREE HOLIDAY PARTY to kick off Theater of the Apes’ 10th anniversary co-production of The Truth About Santa, an apocalyptic holiday tale by Silverback Greg Kotis.
11/28/2018 – from 5pm-7pm
We have all sorts of jolly activities planned
Free photo ops on Santa’s knee!
Signings of Urinetown, Pig Farm, Eat the Taste, and of course, The Truth About Santa!
And now a wee dance to usher in the weekend, in celebration of those brave pioneers who were the first to make a tax-deductible donation to Theater of the Apes fundraising campaign for The Truth About Santa!
Theater of the Apes feels awfully lucky to have these beautiful humans at the head of the pack, helping us to get Santa’s sleigh a few more inches off the ground as we barrel toward production on The Truth About Santa by Greg Kotis, playing at the Tank NYC, December 5-20, 2018. WON’T YOU PLEASE FOLLOW THEIR LEAD?
