Billed as "a unique blend of music, comedy, dance, theatre and juggling," 4PLAY invites audience members to bring objects for the performers to juggle, proving that "chaos and unexpected events in our lives are the best part of being human." The Flying Karamazov Brothers combine objects, musical instruments (both traditional and invented) and their own bodies for the performance. Featuring Paul Magid, Mark Ettinger, Rod Kimball and Stephen Bent, the Flying Karamazov Brothers was formed at a renaissance fair in northern California in 1973. They went on to perform in many theatres across the United States, and have been seen on such television shows as "Seinfeld," "Ellen," "The Today Show" and "Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood" and have collaborated with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Placido Domingo, Dolly Parton and The Who.
4PLAY is written by Paul Magid and The Flying Karamazov Brothers. Magid also directs. The production features choreography by Doug Elkins, music direction by Mark Ettinger, costumes by Susan Hilferty, lighting design by David Hutson, set design by The Flying Karamazov Brothers, and original music by Mark Ettinger, Doug Wieselman and Howard Patterson.
4PLAY runs through March 7. Tickets start at $10 and are available online at www.ticketmaster.com and at the Minetta Lane Theatre box office, located at 18 Minetta Lane between Sixth Avenue and MacDougal Street E. 9th Street.
