*Because of the configuration of the theatre for THE GOLDEN TOAD, seating is very limited. Advanced ticket purchase is suggested.
Talking Band celebrates their Fortieth Season with an episodic music-theater work that traces the shifting identities of its characters over time and changing circumstances. Developed by the company in four site-specific locations: the garden of a Brooklyn townhouse, a tour bus travelling through the New Jersey Meadowlands, a pop-up clothing store, a Karaoke bar called “The Golden Toad” – this world premiere re-creates and re-imagines the original sites throughout The Ellen Stewart Theatre so that the audience moves from episode to episode into four discrete worlds.
