The Public Works Project, a service organization dedicated to Off-Off Broadway's artists and audiences, is presenting an afternoon of free previews of 10 Off-Off Broadway shows. Borrowing the Elizabethan idea of enticing passersby with street corner performances, or "busking", the various companies will take turns offering live excerpts from their current productions. The theatrics will be presided over by a ringmaster, who will introduce each "act."
The show begins at 2pm and goes till 5pm. Tompkins Square Park is located in Manhattan in the East Village between Avenues A and B, running from 7th to 10th streets. The Busking Bonanza will be offered as a monthly event from May until October; upcoming dates are June 8, July 27, August 17, September 21, and October 12.
