New York City has done it again, providing creative and eclectic things to do and see around the city for free! You have less than a month to catch City Park Foundation's SummerStage, New York's largest free performing arts festival. SummerStage has something for everyone, from pop music to puppet shows, and Latin dance to Hip Hop.
And tonight. Tonight! This is the final performance of "Tunde's Trumpet," a commissioned musical production by prominent playwright Chisa Hutchinson. "Tunde's" revels in the unique effect music has on the life of a young boy, Tunde, and is performed with hand-crafted puppets that will entertain an audience of all ages.
This high-energy show comes together with a funky soundtrack written by Elliot Goldman, where he reproduces attitudes that are inherent not only to Tunde, but all of us.
"Tunde's Trumpet" is written by Chisa Hutchinson and directed by Kristin Hortons, two exceptionally talented individuals who created a dynamic, imaginative and playful world peopled by puppets, jazz musicians, and spirits.
Date: TONIGHT, August 8th
Venue: Marcus Garvey Park
