Tiny Little Band: Your Hair Looked Great (World Premiere)
90 minutes / Suitable for 12 years and up
A motivational speech. An ad for cheese chips. An ancient Greek hero. A desire to do good, to live right, to not fail, to make the world better, to find happiness, to find comfort, to find meaning, to find, to find, to find, success, success, SUCCESS. Your Hair Looked Great is a kaleidoscopic head-trip through the social and cultural forces that shape our sense of what life is and what life should be from the company that brought you the 2015 Time Out NY Critics’ Pick Ghost Stories.
A Benefit Ticket ($100) for the Saturday, February 18th 7:30 pm performance includes a lovely after-party with the cast and creative team in the theater along with some schmancy champagne and live music. Proceeds from Benefit Tickets will help Tiny Little Band keep on doing what we do. (Those who purchase a normal ticket for this performance can still come to the show, but will not be able to stay for the after-party.)
TINY LITTLE BAND is the New York based collaboration between Stefanie Abel Horowitz and Jerry Lieblich. Their last piece, Ghost Stories, premiered at Cloud City May 2015 to rave reviews (4 Stars, Critic’s Pick, Time Out New York). It was previously developed at PRELUDE 14 (CUNY), Smith + Tinker (HERE Arts Center), Barn Arts Collective, Gershwin Live at Dixon Place, and the Edward F. Albee Foundation. Past work includes 1927 (Ars Nova, ANT Fest), Rod Serling: Binghamton to Syracuse, and Walt Disney and the Invention of the Human (Fresh Ground Pepper).
“Wonderful… Playwright Jerry Lieblich nests his spooky narratives like Russian dolls, deftly enfolding us in the show’s origami structure till we’re sure the dead are all around us. He makes the evening sensually rich.”
– Time Out NY
“Dizzyingly clever…Mr. Lieblich’s dramatic intentions are always clear. And every element in the production feeds and particularizes this confused clarity. Or clear confusion.”
– NY Times
First performed at THROW presented by Chocolate Factory curated by Sarah Maxfield and Mohawk Fest at Cloud City. Developed at Barn Arts Collective. We would like to thank Playwrights Horizons for the generous donation of rehearsal space for the development of this workshop (production).
