Do you know that the building at 85 East 4th Street is considered to be one of the most haunted spots in all of NYC? Its terrible past includes murders, suicides, exorcisms and lots of spirits that refuse to stay buried.
It all began in 1882 when the original tenement collapsed killing 31 Italian immigrants. From then on, the ground itself was said to be cursed. When the current building was erected at the turn of the century, an exorcism was held...it didn't work. After a night of terror, the priest left the priesthood. Within a year, the builder's son died falling down the long stair case...and the mother hung herself in what is now the theater. The owner succumbed to madness and still haunts the place. He's only one of the many inhabitants who still reside there...
When the critically-acclaimed, award-winning RadioTheatre examined the building's bloody biography in 2004, the show sold out its entire run, received a slew of great reviews and was nominated for Best Performance Art and Best Sound Design. NOW, in an ALL NEW production, with a cast of story tellers, an original orchestral score and a plethora of sound effects, we invite you to return with us to the Kraine Theater to resurrect its restless ghosts. But, we warn you... don't come alone!
