Flowers die. NECROMANCERS OF THE PUBLIC DOMAIN is forever.
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.
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!
Won’t you join us on February 11th, for our first anniversary, when we will be Necromancing The Grizzly, Our Greatest Wild Animal by Enos A Mills (1919)

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?
Each month, we pluck a long forgotten volume from the shelves of the New York Society Library and resurrect it as a low budget variety show….
