A Night with PigPen Theatre Co.
Show DescriptionThe explosively inventive work of the PigPen Theatre Co. features folk storytelling, puppetry, clever staging, live music, and has captured the imagination of critics and audiences alike since they were introduced to the New York stage in 2010 at FringeNYC with “The Nightmare Story”. Since then, the group has gone on to become the first company in history to win FringeNYC’s highest honor for a play two years running (2010 and 2011 with “The Mountain Song”), produced their work off-broadway, ranked as the The Huffington Post’s #5 theatrical event of 2011, and of course, finished their undergraduate conservatory training at Pittsburgh’s historic Carnegie Mellon School of Drama.
Join us at Joe's Pub for a series of shows with the PigPen boys that will feature their signature music in full concert sound. Lush harmonies, banjos, accordions, guitars, drums, pianos and more will bring to life their favorite songs from the debut album, "Bremen", and their off-broadway production, "The Old Man and The Old Moon", running at The Gym at Judson this fall!
