Born from rocks and tired of waiting for the hot weather to end, newFangled theatReR’s ensemble returns with a new envisioning of Mac Wellman’s Harm’s Way. NYTheatre.com’s Ross Chappell called newFangled’s last stab, in the first annual FRIGID Festival, “near perfection… The performances aren’t just good, they are stunning… Cancel your plans for Saturday night, and go to the East Village to see this show.” As they delve into the anger of Santouche, a journeying anti-hero, newFangled creates a scenic and musical background from scraps, sticks, and strange musical instruments, transforming UNDER St. Marks Theater into an apocalyptic gypsy dreamscape, welding storytelling with their characters to create a world rich in movement and music. The peculiarly spectacular result is not to be missed!
