There’s a fun musical running at the Abrons Arts Center right now that has been getting some glowing reviews. “Sky Boys: The Building of the Empire State Building,” is presented by Making Books Sing, a creative educational theater company (originally an off-shoot of the Vineyard Theater) that brings picture books to the stage for family entertainment. The show tells the story of the Empire State’s improbable construction, in 1930-31, through the eyes of  Mickey, (Aaron Riesebeck) a 13-year-old who’s widowed father has left town. He hides in the partly completed building rather than sleep in a boys’ home and is discovered by one of the water boys who goes by “Little Joe” (Jessica Angleskhan), really a Native American girl in disguise. He befriends a team of Mohawk ironworkers, and despite his fear of heights, accepts a job with the building’s photographer Lewis Hine.  $10 // through March 6 // Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday at noon – Friday at 7 pm – Saturday, Sunday at noon and 3 pm // 466 Grand Street.
