‘Emergency Request’ from TNC

Crystal Field, the executive artistic director at Theater for the New City, has issued an “emergency request” in an effort to raise another $14,000 for this summer’s Street Theater tour. This year’s free traveling musical, “99% Reduced Fat, or, You can Bank on Us,” is about “a young Gang Member who grows into a Community Activist, and a true citizen of New York City,” and will make stops in the Lower East Side, Bed-Stuy, the South Bronx, Coney Island, Harlem, and Jackson Heights, according to the release. You can donate here and take a look back at last summer’s show here.
