NO FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS is a multimedia song cycle centered around Howard Fishman's true-life adventures in rural Romania with his childhood friend (and New York Times travel journalist/photographer) Michael Benanav.  The project combines original music, historical memoir, storytelling and photography to essay their exploits together in far-flung Eastern Europe.

MANNA-HATA opens tonight!

 

Peculiar Works Project's MANNA-HATA, featuring ten all-new original Howard Fishman songs, opens June 7 (tonight!) and runs until June 23rd.

The multimedia theater experience is being staged in spaces throughout the gigantic James A. Farley Post Office (across from Penn Station), a mostly vacant building pegged as the future home of the Daniel Patrick Moynihan Station.

MANNA-HATA was written by playwright Barry Rowell and is directed by Kathleen Amshoff, and features original movement, choreography, film and singing by a large ensemble of actors, singers and dancers.

Opening night is sold out, but tickets still remain for the remainder of the run. Get them here.
