About Banners & Cranks presents The Singing Picture Show
Banners & Cranks presents The Singing Picture Show July 20 & 21 at The Jalopy Theatre in Brooklyn featuring new works by a gaggle of cantastoria artists and musicians from across the country with yards and yards of art and folks there to sing its story.
Performing each night will be:
--- --- The Dolly Wagglers combining polkas and barnstompers with tales of pre-post-consumer society
--- --- New York's very own Great Small Works and Circus Amok's fabulous Jennifer Miller; from Philadelphia/Providence, Ramshackle Enterprises featuring the wry work of Beth Nixon
--- --- Chicago's Meredith Miller presenting six pieces that exploit "the disturbing subtexts in jazz standards"
--- --- Theater Oobleck with new selections from its 7-year project Baudelaire in a Box
--- --- Vermont's Clare Dolan premiering a brand new cantastoria
--- --- Meredith Holch with a gripping piece of labor history in sassy rhyming coupletes
--- --- Anna Roberts-Gevalt with her sewn and stitched crankies!
Each night will feature music including the B&C All-Star Orkestar with special guest star appearances by Jalopy's own Whiskey Spitters.
