The Old Man and The Old Moon
PigPen Theatre Co.’s The Old Man and The Old Moon is a luminously lo-fi spectacle that elevates traditional storytelling to high art. The fantastical, song-filled tale takes us to the end of the world when an old man abandons his duty of filling the moon with liquid light to search for his missing wife. With a rollicking array of ever-changing characters, inventive theatrical effects, and an infectious contemporary fold sound, these seven young actor musicians transform the seemingly ordinary into sheer wonder. The Old Man and The Old Moon opens the 2014 season at the New Victory Theater in New York City from September 26-October13, and will then move to the Paramount Center Mainstage in Boston in partnership with ArtsEmerson from November 19-23.
