Gathering the Magic Makes Its World Premiere With The Tank
The Alex Timbers-founded theater troupe announces a magic-inspired season opener.
Written and performed by Nelson Lugo, Gathering the Magic follows a young man's journey from his first toy magic kit to professional magician – and all the things magical and not-so-much he encounters along the way.
Preview performances will begin January 30 in advance of a January 31 opening at The Tank's home theater. The show will run through February 15, with a "pay what you can" performance on February 8.
In the spirit of magic shows, each performance will feature an opening act — a rotating schedule featuring some of Mr. Lugo's young peers, including Killy Mockstar Dwyer, Schaffer the Darklord, and Eli August & The Abandoned Buildings. The production is presented as part of The Tank's Flint & Tinder program, curated by Josh Luxenberg and Jon Levin of Sinking Ship Productions. The series is produced and co-curated by Rosalind Grush of The Tank.
Upcoming Flint & Tinder productions also include Go to Sleep, Goddamnit! (April 10-26), What Are You Eating? (May 15-30), and ADA/AVA (June 15-July 5).
