I’m finally going to see the Fast Trash exhibit on Roosevelt Island this weekend. Sadly, my Saturday schedule does not allow time for this TRASH THEMED MUSICAL THEATER. Sigh. Next year.
Saturday, May 22, 5pm
Live musical theater “AVAC Memories” in Gallery RIVAA: “AVAC Memories” tells the story of five pieces of household waste who are tossed into a Roosevelt Island garbage can and, together, go on a thrilling journey through the AVAC sanitation system. As they are dropped down garbage chutes, sucked through pneumatic tubes, crunched in a compactor and shipped off to the dump in a garbage barge, our grimy heroes learn some valuable lessons about friendship, courage and perseverance in the face of adversity. Please join us for this short live performance followed by a Q and A with the creators.
“AVAC Memories” was written by Frederick Alden Terry (music) and John Herin (lyrics). The original production was directed by Dev Bondarin and produced by the Prospect Theater Company in April 2009.
