Designers include Alfred Schatz (set design), Jeremy Pape (lighting design), Ricky Lang (costume design), Bart Lucas (sound design) and Han Mautz (fight choreography).
According to PS 122, "An extraordinary gathering of young idealists live as a modern day urban tribe above a vegan restaurant in NYC. Billy, Dawn, Dear and Wyatt are an extended sexual family battling their fears and addictions in order to live their utopian dream. The Pied Pipers of the Lower East Side is a celebration of love and the search for human grandness."
The troupe was founded in 2006 by actors James Kautz and Matthew Pilieci and writer Ahonen; their mission is to offer provocative stage works that bear no moral judgment. Tickets are available by phoning (212) 352-3101 or by visiting PS122.
PS 122 is located in Manhattan at 150 1st Avenue at East 9th Street.
