Galapagos Art Space launches its new theater
series, "Evolve," on Jan. 6 with Clay McLeod Chapman’s
"Bar Flies." Curated by Artistic Director Travis Chamberlain,
the series will feature a different show each month.
Chapman’s "Bar Flies" stars the playwright - plus actors Karl Allen, Hanna Cheek, Dave Gueriera and Sean Twomey - settled amongst the patrons in Galapagos’s back room. The five stories related by the actors will mix with music from the band.
Chapman (pictured) is perhaps best known as the creator of the "Pumpkin Pie Show," which has been playing in New York and around the world for the past eight years. He is also the author of "Miss Corpus" (Hyperion).
Future "Evolve" series pieces will include new works from Rachel Shukert (February); Kyle Jarrow with performance artists Desiree Burch, Michael Cyril Creighton and Brian Mullin (April); and monologist Mike Daisey (May).
"Bar Flies" performances are Jan. 6, 13 and 27 at 8 pm. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door. Galapagos is located at 70 North Sixth St. at Wythe Avenue in Williamsburg. For information, call (718) 782-5188 or visit the Web site at www.galapa
