Lucy Thurber‘s play Monstrosity, featuring “singing teenage fascists, magic, war, and love”, is one of the most ambitious theater productions I have ever experienced.

If you have trouble sitting through a play without falling asleep or thinking of something else, then Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind is the perfect play for you. Actually, it’s 30 plays fit into 60 minutes, so you won’t even have time to fall asleep because each play lasts at most 3 minutes.
Too Much Light… is performed by the New York Neo-Futurists every Friday and Saturday night at 10:30 PM at the Kraine Theater. The show is engaging and interactive from the start. [click to continue….]

What was right on top of me made my eyes widen with awe. I didn’t realize it when I walked in, but this chandelier that was hanging on top of us was actually a piece of art!
Trinity, created by Andy Diaz Hope and Laurel Roth, is a chandelier decorated with strings of colorful pills and blood red drops of Swarovski crystals dripping out of the many needles. Each needle took the place of a giant crystal that would be on a normal chandelier. (For a moment, I felt as if the needles would drop onto our heads.) [click to continue….]
