Join the theatrical party downtown
Works by 205 different theater and dance companies will take over the East Village and Lower East Side, each getting just five or six chances to show their stuff—no wonder they’ve helped you whittle them down. We suggest Jessie Bear and Erin B Mee’s Staten Island Ferry podcast Ferry Play, a site-specific, sensory audio experience on the Staten Island Ferry, where every sight, smell and sound plays a supporting role. Ferry Play is a self-scheduled performance that you can download and listen to now or at any time that suits you.
There’s also an epic opening party, a mid-fest relief party and an awards night and closing party—so get your theatrical outfits ready and hit the scene.
The festival runs from August 8th through August 24th at 18 downtown venues. Be sure to take the quiz (it’s quirky & fun) and get tickets now to the shows that speak personally to you.
