Untitled Theater Company No. 61 – Paul Auster’s novel “City of Glass”

Untitled Theater Company No. 61Paul Auster‘s novel “City of Glass” adapted for stage by Edward Einhorn

Shot the dress rehearsal and had a great time documenting this lovely visual feast!

The show is beautiful, and the book is excellent. Edward has made an amazing adaptation of the book for the stage.

Music by Freddi Prince

Movement/Choreography by Patrice Miller

Robert Honeywell as Daniel Quinn

and performers/dancers Dina Rose Rivera and Mateo Moreno.

I see the show as a detective novel with an existential slant by Paul Auster brought to life by Edward Einhorn.

So most of the photographs in this post will be Film Noir black and white.

Vaudevisuals Interview with Edward Einhorn

Paul Auster’s CITY OF GLASS

Daniel Quinn receives a phone call. On the other end of the line is a man asking for Paul Auster, private detective. Quinn claims to be Auster and falls down a rabbit hole. A one man show with three performers, one of whom does all the speaking. Full of double and triple identities and using video and music throughout. Scored by Freddi Price (Drama Desk nominee for The Pigeoning). Adapted by Edward Einhorn from Paul Auster’s film noir-inspired absurdist first novel, the beginning of his New York Trilogy.
