Play, Reinvented: Two of NYC’s most innovative theater companies, Broken Box Mime Theater and Recent Cutbacks, present a showcase that reimagines the bounds of physical storytelling. Without a lick of frills, these companies breathe fresh air into what audiences know and love, whether it be a blockbuster movie or a throwback art form. Using the audience’s imagination as their medium, both companies delight and engage with the transformative power of “play.”
Play, Reinvented will include 15 minutes of each:
Hold On To Your Butts by Recent Cutbacks: a “shot for shot,” two-person remake of Jurassic Park, complete with a live foley artist, rapid-fire humor, and Jeff Goldblum impressions.
ABOVE BELOW by Broken Box Mime Theater: an artfully curated show of short plays in which each story riffs inventively on the words “above” and “below;” this showcase features a taste of the show’s most absurdly comedic and heart-wrenchingly dramatic pieces.
