Musical theater probably won't topple fascism, but it couldn't hurt!
At the dawn of this terrifying new era, playwright/performer Dan Fishback presents a night of songs from The Material World Trilogy -- a series of plays about Jewish resistance and Jewish trauma, spanning two millennia from the ancient Hebrew revolt against the Greek Empire to Jewish opposition to Israeli apartheid.
Joined by a coterie of stars from Broadway and beyond, REVOLUTION HANGOUT will feature music from "The Material World" (named one of the “Top 10 shows of 2012” by Time Out New York), and mark the debut of songs from the trilogy's upcoming final chapter, "Rubble Rubble."
Known for his nerdy sensibility and surreal sense of humor, Dan Fishback has been making political performances since he got his start in NYC's anti-folk singer/songwriter scene in the early 00s. He has released five albums, both solo and with his indie-pop band Cheese On Bread, which just released a protest video for their song "All Your Sisters," featuring dozens of women and gender non-conforming people with messages for Donald Trump. Cheese On Bread's new album, "The One Who Wanted More," will drop later this year. Fishback is also the director of the Helix Queer Performance Network, a collaboration between La MaMa, BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange, and the Hemispheric Institute, through which he organizes a wide range of public programs, including the annual series La MaMa's Squirts: Generations of Queer Performance.
