“Bizarre and sneakily thrilling” (New York Times), Promenade is a zany and charming anti-capitalist musical by two leading artists of the New York avant-garde — Cuban-American playwright María Irene Fornés (who passed away earlier this year) and composer Reverend Al Carmines. A cast of lowlife convicts and uptown swells sing a glorious score that blends nostalgic ballads, vaudeville, campy maximalism, and Broadway showstoppers. Bard alum Morgan Green ’12 returns to direct this kaleidoscopic, gorgeous, and utterly unconventional work, which premiered in 1965 at Judson Memorial Church—a center of the thriving off-off-Broadway theater scene—and transferred to off-Broadway in 1969.
Estimated run time is 90 minutes.
