That's Right: Two Shows

So, yes. As you can see from the last two posts, this summer Nosedive Productions is mounting two -- count 'em, TWO -- plays at once.

We're not doing these plays in rep and not doing them as a double-feature. They're being staged separately as part of two separate festivals in two separate boroughs going up at the same time.

Over at Horse Trade's Kraine Theater in Manhattan, we're staging Blood Brothers present...FREAKS FROM THE MORGUE, the latest installment of our annual horror anthology show as part of EndTimes Productions' Vignettes for the Apocalypse V.

Meanwhile, over the river at the Brick Theater in Brooklyn, we're presenting Captain Moonbeam & Lynchpin, a tragic superhero as part of the Brick's Comic Book Theater Festival.

Captain Moonbeam is playing as a double-bill with Gideon Productions' Savior, a new play by Brian Silliman. Interestingly enough, the Blood Brothers show will also feature new works by Brian as well as Mac Rogers, one of the actors in Savior.

What the dick were we thinking?

Though honestly, I don't think I can convey how excited I am for this to be happening. We didn't plan for this to happen: originally these productions were going to be a month apart, but wound up going up concurrently. Hey, it happens.

The fact of the matter is, I love the idea of having two shows going up at once, especially since (and this is the really bizarre part) this is costing us less to do than if we had staged only one show ourselves. That's right: it's more economically viable to stage two separate productions than one.

We here at Nosedive Central are very thankful for EndTimes and The Brick for bringing us onboard their respective festivals. Really, guys. You're showing that being incredibly ambitious (or perhaps incredibly stupid) can pay off, even without much money. So again, thank you for letting us play in their respective sandboxes and allow us to engage in our theatrical silliness in two boroughs.

I think this is going to be a crazy fun summer.

So: enjoy some macabre horror and gore-based theatre over at the Kraine in Manhattan, then some comic book-style drama over at the Brick in Brooklyn. We here at Nosedive Central have got it covered.

In the meantime, I'll keep you posted on tickets and other information in a way that hopefully won't confuse you or send you to the wrong theatre at the wrong night.

(Then again, I once had an audience member who simply couldn't find 85 East 4th Street, and she'd been living in New York for decades. I can only do so much, people.)

Competing with himself,
