Conceived as a literal dream play—the work is performed for an audience that is encouraged to experience the piece while they fall in and out of sleep. This durational performance installation invites the audience to take an immersive journey through Cao Xueqin’s 18th century Chinese novel “Dream of the Red Chamber”—an epic love story between a stone and a flower, framed by a dizzying series of metaphysical dreams.

TODAY IN THEATRE HISTORY: In 2004, the stage of Studio 54 turns into the underbelly of a carnival roller coaster — complete with shooting gallery, spinning wheel and unattainable prizes — as Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s 1990 musical Assassins premieres on Broadway. Directed by Joe Mantello, the cast includes Michael Cerveris, Neil Patrick Harris, Marc Kudisch and Denis O’Hare. The production will earn five Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical.

For more on Assassins, including a look inside the show’s opening night Playbill, visit PlaybillVault.com.

Loved this show…

Full Bunny Contact

FBC is headlined by this crazy event. Two people at a time, armed with Easter Baskets, are put in a caged-in field and will have 60 seconds to collect as many plastic eggs stuffed with redeemable coupons for prizes as they can. Once the shot clock goes off they start. There are three large Bunnies, however, trying to stop you from being successful. This isn’t a football game, wrestling match or an MMA fight. The key here is agility, quickness and  smarts. You are not allowed to strike, grab or push the bunnies. Any illegal contact will automatically disqualify you. The bunnies are only allowed to target your eggs. They can block them, move them, kick them, grab them from your hand and swat them out of your basket.
