A cappella Theater.
There are two—count 'em two!—a cappella stage shows coming to New York.
The first, Perfect Harmony, is up now. According to the press materials: PERFECT HARMONY is a new comedy about the search for truth, love and high school a cappella championship glory. Perennial powerhouse, The Acafellas, and their female classmates, The Ladies in Red, bare their dreams, hopes, and struggles to blend, as they battle to win Acapalooza, The National Championship Jam, and discover the true meaning of harmony.
The show is playing thru July 24th at Theater Row on 42nd Street. To see the show for only $15 (regular ticket price $18), use the code SATB or TTBB to buy four or more tickets. To Buy Tickets and For More Info, click here.
The second is called IN TRANSIT, and it's running August 8-10 at the York Theatre Company space on Lexington and 54th Street. The plot (according to the press materials): A cappella on the express track! From below the city's streets springs a brand new musical, inspired by the rhythms and sounds of life on the subway. There's not an instrument in sight as a colorful array of commuters find their way in NYC. Mixing reggae, pop, soul, beat box and more, IN TRANSIT is unlike anything you've ever seen-or heard-on stage before.
