Told as a song cycle with live visuals and set in a post-industrial Rust Belt city in the 1990's, The End of TV explores the quest to find meaning amongst the constant barrage of commercial images designed to sell us lifestyles in the interest of selling us junk. The two sides of the American Dream - its technicolor promise as delivered through TV advertising, and its failure witnessed in the dark outcome of industrial decline - are staged in cinematic shadow puppetry and lo-fi live video feeds with flat paper renderings of commercial products. The show is driven by a sweeping song cycle performed live by a 5 piece band.


Tickets: Previews 7/19 $15, $25. Regular Run $20/$30
