Performance Space New York – Grand Re-Opening Celebration


East Village Series!

Sunday Night – Feb. 18th from 6 pm till 9 pm

The OPENING of the PS122 building after years of renovation proved to be worth the wait!

The two new spaces – Derek Lloyd stage and Neilma Sidney Theatre – were utilized for the OPENING NIGHT ‘Avant-Garde-Arama.’

Here are my images and video from the AGA Extravaganza on this night!

Opening the show in the Derek Lloyd Stage was Pat Oleszko and her beautiful inflatables.

The theater was packed for the AGA show in the Derek Lloyd theater.

Salley May and the ensemble players bust open the place with a great song and dance exorcism.

Spiderwoman Theater (Muriel Miguel & Gloria Miguel) had some stories to tell.

In the other space – Neilma Sidner Theatre – I walked in on Cornelius Loy playing the theremin.

 Murray Hill was on hand hob-nobbing with the crowd in the hallway.

Lois Weaver and Holly Hughes having a drink together.

Hanging out near the bar before the performance was Patti Spliff.

James Godwin (performing in the Neilma Sidney Theater) and Gary Ray.

The sound and lighting crew did a great job running the shows in both theaters.
