Gob Squad's Kitchen (You've Never Had It So Good), a theatrical recollection of Andy Warhol's films, begins performances Jan. 19 at the Public Theater.



After a run during the 2011 Under the Radar Festival, the Gob Squad, the German/British theatre collective, returns with the interactive theatre event that invites a handful of audience members to participate in the action. Performances continue through Feb. 5.

As part of the Jan. 19 performance, the Public Theater is allowing 25 audience members to live-Tweet during the performance. So You Think You Can Tweet: Gob Squad Edition features 25 specially reserved "Tweet Seats" for audience members who will live-Tweet what they see and experience during the performance.

Representatives for the Public said that they have organized the seating so as not to disturb other audience members during the 8 PM performance.

"Gob Squad invites you to take the hand of the King of Pop himself, Andy Warhol, and take a trip back to the underground cinemas of New York City, back to where it all began," according to the Public. "Gob Squad's Kitchen reconstructs Warhol's films in the quest to illuminate the past for a new generation, reflecting on the nature of authenticity, the here and now, and the hidden depths beneath the shiny surfaces of modern life."
