A cast of thirty angels, mysterious and serene, multiply and re-materialize throughout Green-Wood Cemetery’s beautiful rolling hills; music from a nearby accordionist floats through the air. Your pulse slows. Your eyes start to catch things you didn't know they could.
This City of the Dead, for just a moment, brings the unexpected to life. This is the magic- quiet and sometimes strange- of "Angels & Accordions."
Alison Tocci, President of all the Time Out publications, called Angels and Accordions her President’s Best Pick, presenting us with an award through the Municipal Arts Society! And some 10,000+ audience members agree, with many returning over and over during its extraordinary six year run.
There's just one thing missing to make this final performance of Angels and Accordions the biggest, best and most unforgettable of all: YOU.
With a large cast, acclaimed creators, and the super-talented people working behind the scenes who make it all happen (costume designers, stage managers, rehearsal directors, etc.), this is an expensive production.
We need you, your mom, your facebook friends and everybody else you know to join in and help make the farewell "Angels" an event we'll be remembering for a long time.
Keep innovative art alive in NYC! Choose the level of support (and accompanying reward) that's right for you. Then come on out and see the show October 9th and tell your friends you made it all happen. No matter what pledge you were able to make, you'll be telling the truth!
Help us use the arts to bring people and places, past and present together in new and exciting ways.
