"we are destroyed" gets a new look at New York Theater Workshop

"we are destroyed," Howard's music theater piece inspired by the Donner Party tragedy of 1846, has been selected for a new showing at NEW YORK THEATER WORKSHOP's "Monday@3" series in April.

Though the new workshop showing is not open to the public, it represents a new step forward for the project, which has been seen in previous iterations (and in various stages of development) as a concert, an oratorio, and a play with music.

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.
