In the world of shameless self promotion, my new play Candide Americana is being produced in the New York International Fringe Festival by the award-winning Rabbit Hole Ensemble Theatre Company. Here are the dates and times:
Wed August 19 at 6:00 PM
Sat August 22 at Noon
Sun August 23 at 10:15 PM
Fri August 28 at 9:30 PM
Sun August 30 at 4:45 PM
(Note the freakish times. The Fringe does not seat latecomers.)
The play is being performed at Venue #2, which is at The Flamboyan Theatre at CSV Cultural Center, 107 Suffolk St. (F to Delancey and J/M to Essex)
Tickets are $15 and can be gotten through the Fringe or through Rabbit Hole Ensemble.
Here's an official blurb-like description of the play:
Seven actors play 40 characters complete with multiple decapitations, song, and the greatest treasure known to man in this high-energy contemporary re-imagining of Voltaire's classic novel. Provocative yet irresistible, this unlikely love story is a cosmic road trip that will leave you pondering your place in the universe.
If you're in New York City in late August, I highly recommend seeing it. It's an absolute hoot, and of course, more importantly, it's all true.
