The following is from Fangoria… oh, how I wish I lived in NYC sometimes.
Halloween kicks off early this year on the New York City stage scene when 59E59 Theaters (59 East 59th Street, between Park and Madison Avenues) premieres THE H.G. WELLS SCIENCE FICTION FESTIVAL, featuring adaptations of four of Wells’ classic novels. The performances run for a limited engagement beginning Thursday, October 11 and ending Sunday, November 4 (the official opening night is Wednesday, October 17).
The four plays being performed are (predictably enough) the Big 4: The War of the Worlds, The Time Machine, The Island of Dr. Moreau, and The Invisible Man. All are directed by a fellow named Dan Bianchi, who “has written and directed over 50 plays and musicals and has been nominated for numerous awards, both for stage and screen work,” whatever the hell that means.
I care not: it’s H.G. Wells; it rocks. You can visit the group’s site to spend your valuable time poring over some not very helpful marketing information about how great some abstractly-named theatre foundation is, or you can go straight to Ticket Central to buy tix to individual shows (by performance name).
