big weekend

Not only can you check out The Event at Barrow Street Theatre, but the wunderkinds over at Stolen Chair Theater are opening their latest at the Connelly tonight, Theater is Dead and So Are You.

These are the folks behind Kill Me Like You Mean It and Kinderspiel, two of the best things I've seen in NYC in recent years.

Here's the blurb:

Theatre is Dead and So Are You is an irreverent funeral for the stage. A
ragtag bunch of variety hacks are laying their sometimes beloved MC to rest,
performing his funeral live, travelling from city to city, until such time as his
body is too decomposed to make the proceedings pleasant. Their "eulogies" are
performed à la classic variety, with slapstick, melodrama, song & dance, and
feats of illusion and mentalism, each taking its own deadly turn as they celebrate
the life and death of their dearly departed dead dead dead friend. Even in their
joyous performance, a spectre looms as each knows they've all been exposed to
the fatal disease that killed their MC: Life. Watch these seasoned has-beens kill
theatre, live before your very eyes.

Catch it if you can and I'll see you at Barrow Street.
