Celebrate April Fool’s Day with Tall Tales & the Big Con


Fortune Telling, Con Men, Hucksters, Imposters, Myths, Legends …

They’re all the stuff of Trav S.D.’s Tent Show Tetrgrammaton. Three more chances to see it, including the perfect day of all days: April Fool’s Day.

In the inconceivable event you haven’t yet seen it yet, perhaps some of the attached clips, articles and reviews will convince you!:

* Background essays by me on Universal Rundle, Grippo, and the inspiration for the evening.
* Terrific reviews of the show by Scott Stiffler (the Villager); Adam McGovern (Comic Critique) and Mateo Moreno (Big Vision, Empty Waller).
* A podcast interview on NYTheatre.com featuring myself, Carolyn Raship, Timothy McCown Reynolds, and Sarah Engelke. Find out what’s in this mysteriously-named show, and why it has that mysterious name, by going here.
* A photoessay by the amazing Jim Moore on his web site Vaudevisuals. See gorgeous pix of the show by going here..
* An interview with Carolyn Raship on the New York Theatre Review blog. To read about her and her working directing Strega Nona, go here.
* And these two swell video previews on Vimeo, plugging The Strange Case of Grippo the Apeman and Strega Nona (click on title for link to the clip.)
