Brian Lehrer Listener Pick! (suggested by Crystal Field)
The Theater for the New City's Street Theater Company presents Gone Fission with free performances on the streets of all five boroughs throughout August.
TNC's award-winning Street Theater always contains an elaborate assemblage of trap doors, giant puppets, smoke machines, masks, original choreography and a huge (9' x 12') running screen or "cranky" providing continuous movement behind the actors. Complex social issues are often presented through children's allegories, with children as the heroes, making these free productions a popular form of family entertainment.
