Coffeehouse Chronicles #124 was presented on March 14th, 2015. A ‘free’, interactive, educational series exploring the history and development of Off-Off Broadway from its inception within the Village ‘coffeehouse theatres’ of the 1960’s through today. Part artist portrait, part history lesson, part community forum.
The curator Michael Gamily opened the evening with comments followed by an interview with Ping Chong by Victoria Abrash.
The evening also presented video excerpts from “Truth & Beauty” (by Ping Chong, Michael Rohd, Jeff Rose. Virginia Tech, 1999) & “Collidescope: Adventures of Pre and Post Racial America” (by Ping Chong & Talvin Wilks, University of Maryland, 2014)
