I performed with this theatre company a few years ago and had a great experience playing one of the Hatfields in a play titled "FEUD: Fire On the Mountain". Growing out my hair and "ZZ Top-like" beard in mid-July was a different story... Anyway, I keep in touch with them and attend plays and events when I can. When I heard about this, I got very excited and wanted to share it with my fellow Roadfooders. If you live in the city or happen to be here, it sounds like fun! Cough, buffetbuster, cough, cough!! I think I'll be baking a couple of pies. Hope to see you there.
Oh, I hope it's cool to post this here with the links. if not, please let me know. Thanks!
Please join us for New York Theatre Experiment's Great American Pie-Off on Saturday, July 26th at the city's newest downtown hotspot, the Bowery Electric!
Show off your culinary talents, compete for big prizes and (of course) eat pie!
Winning pies will be selected by our panel of celebrity judges, led by Top Chef Dave Martin. An audience favorite pie will voted on by guests at the event.
At the Pie-Off we will also officially unveil the collection of restaged iconic American photographs shot by Leah Reddy, featuring many, many members of the NYTE community! These photos will be used as source material to inspire new plays. The winning plays will be produced in our Capture the Flag Festival this September. Playwrights interested in participating are strongly encouraged to attend.
Admission to the event is free! Pie, snacks and drinks from the bar will be available for purchase.
Baking a pie? Register online and pay $10, in advance. Or register on July 26, in person, for $15 (in cash).
