Two of the New York International Fringe Festival shows playing in our neighborhood this weekend are:
Egg Farm, written by Bill Heck and Nick Mills and directed by Wes Grantom: "Two
actors: many people. Think Sweeney Todd meets Brecht meets YOU, set in
a dark, funny, and bloody future. Come secure the success of humanity
for only a small, one-time fee: YOUR LIFE".
Saturday, 7:45pm at CSV Cultural and Educational Center – Milagro at 107 Suffolk Street (Rivington & Delancey Streets)
Willy Nilly, A Musical Exploitation of the Most Far-Out Cult Murders of the Psychedelic Era. The troupe describes it as
"Charles Manson meets Mad Magazine in this tasteless spoof about a
filthy faux-Messiah, his cult of wanton women, and high Hollywood
murder. With a raucous score, gratuitous nudity, acid freakouts,
excessive gore, cruel stereotypes and slapstick misogyny, consider this
the anti-Hair." Sunday, 8:30 pm at Dixon Place (161 Chrystie)
For some non-Fringe related theater, head over to The Living Theatre tonight to check out Where Aliens Roam, a variety show that features avant garde performance art by musicians, dancers, performance artists and
actors. For more info and tickets visit Roaming Aliens Productions here.
For some family fun on Suday, you can take part in The Eldgridge Museum's ongoing series Preservation Detectives. Discover the story of the 1887 Eldridge Street Synagogue on a
fun-filled program combining architecture, history and Jewish culture. The program includes conversations and art activities inspired by participants' discoveries.
Every Wednesday and Sunday at 1:00 pm. Recommended for ages 5-10. $15 per family.
