About this show

Following its 2017 New York Times Critic's Pick world premiere, which introduced many New York audiences to the widely popular British art form known as the Panto, Jack and the Beanstalk returns this holiday season with even more radical joy. Jack needs the whole town's support to help him chop down the beanstalk. In the process, Jack and their neighbors free themselves from their oppressor, the plundering Giant Rump. Written by disabled actor/writer Mat Fraser, directed by feminist artist Julie Atlas Muz, and featuring an intergenerational, mixed-ability cast, Jack and the Beanstalk brings the Lower East Side together with a family-friendly, holiday production that is inherently irreverent, lightly political, and with the message that eventually good triumphs over evil.
