The New Ohio Theatre
Bring the entire family as the New Ohio's underground theatre is transformed into a living archive of characters, both real and imagined, from the rich history of NYC's West Village. Guided by a local expert host, modeled after legendary community activist Jane Jacobs, families engage in a hands-on 360° pre-show experience, then become immersed in four different short stories, created by some of NYC's most accomplished theater artists.
Devised by the company, written by Jamie Roach & Mara Lieberman | Festival Curated & Produced by Peter Musante
