On Friday, October 25, St. John The Divine Cathedral invites brave souls to its annual Halloween Extravaganza and Procession of the Ghouls.
After a screening of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920), accompanied by live organ music, the Cathedral will be transformed by fantastical creatures of the night, created by Artist-in-Residence Ralph Lee and embodied by the Mettawee River Theatre Company—loping and scurrying down the Nave, leaving delightful fright in their wake.
Brecht in the Park is3 rarely-performed short plays by Bertolt Brecht.
To shake up the usual outdoor theatre fare offered in NYC, Elephant Run District is presenting Brecht in the Park. Included in this presentation are three rarely-performed short plays – The Elephant Calf, In Search of Justice, The Exception and the Rule. Each of the three short plays is connected by the motif of a courtroom drama, where society’s rules are examined and one is judged based on those rules.
This imaginative production, directed by Aimee Todoroff, will fuse physical and political theatre, bringing these early 20th century works into the contemporary world of the Occupy Movement, Citizens United, Stop & Frisk actions and Stand Your Ground laws. It will feature masks and puppets created by Joe Osheroff, winner of three New York Innovative Theatre Awards in 2012.
Performances:Saturdays and Sundays, July 6 to 28 at 4 p.m. (no show July 13), near the southeast corner of the Great Hill in Central Park.
An additional performance will take place on Tuesday, July 23 at 7:30 p.m at the Brecht Forum, corner of West and Bank Streets.
Admission is free to all performances. Donations will gladly be accepted.
This looks like great family theatre. I hope we can squeeze it in between all the other weekend activities we have going on. One (1) day only!
