Whoo-hoo! Selling out works! We knew it! Congrats to all involved. Hopefully the next step is a Brick Theater IPO…
In all seriousness, this is one of the best off-off houses in the city. So take the freakin’ L train and get out to Williamsburg to see a show! (We’re not responsible if this happens.)
The Brick Theater, Inc. shamelessly announces EXTENSIONS of several
shows in THE $ELLOUT FESTIVAL
New York, New York June 26, 2006—With the success of this year’s

August 26 at The Brick Theater (575 Metropolitan Avenue, between
Union and Lorimer Streets, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn). Tickets for

Accosted by various hallucinations — Anna Nicole Smith being chased
by her dead billionaire husband, James Joyce and W. B. Yeats begging
her to embrace art, a professor on a subway doing a striptease with
the floor-to-ceiling pole — she tries to maintain her sanity while

perky song & dance numbers by Anna Nicole, Joyce, Yeats and a lusty,

Directed by Jeff Lewonczyk

The year is not-so-subtly 1969. A company accountant comes to visit
a schlock film director’s vampire sexploitation set, and things get a
little wild when someone doses the lemonade with something a little

Who’s biting whom in the neck? When the 60s die, will they be reborn
as the undead 70s.
