The Flea embodies the spirit of adventure and experiment that has defined Off-Off-Broadway since its inception. The Flea is one of the only professional theaters in the city that maintains an open-door policy for artists—a policy that the organization believes is crucial to keeping New York theater vital. Part playground, part laboratory, part training ground, The Flea has been home to established artists taking new risks, emerging artists developing their ideas, and mid-career artists building sustained audiences and identities.
In this queer love story from Taylor Mac, audiences will jump into the mud with the Fre to hash out the current cultural divide. The play is set in a giant ball pit with audience seating inside and out.
This absurdist work about a chorus of students trying trying like the devil to tell a simple story offers an examination of the post-9/11 world. Part of the Flea's "Mac Wellman: Perfect Catastrophes" series.
