133 MacDougal Street
From the spookylicious to the delightfully delicious, the four American raconteurs will share classic and contemporary tales at three events hosted at the historic Playhouse. Descriptions are as follows:
Sunday, September 21, 2014, 3 p.m.
Laura Simms and Regina Ress
Magic in the World
Simms and Ress combine true-life tales of renewal and ancestors with ancient myths and a zany Romanian fairytale as told by Simms’s grandmother, finding inspiration and beauty in nature and living language carried in the remarkable tales.
Appropriate for adults and children 9 and older.
Sunday, October 26, 2014, 3 p.m.
The Aesthetics of Horror!
Fierst tells tales both spooky and horrific. From San Francisco in the ’60s to the edge of a mile-wide meteor crater in the black lava flow near Zuni, New Mexico, Fierst’s stories question what is real and what is unknown and he guarantees all participants will scream at least once during the performance.
Appropriate for adults and children 10 and older.
Sunday, November 9, 2014, 3 p.m.
A Moveable Feast of Story
Muray's unique approach to storytelling incorporates mime and masks, swaths of cloth, and a command of sound and voice that create rich, memorable characters. Having trained with some of the masters in physical theatre, Muray’s performances breathe new life into the old stories. Appropriate for adults and children 8 and older.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 212-998-5867 or visit the event page.
