Deep Thoughts

Highlights from the Brick Theater’s Pretentious Festival, a good-natured send-up of oblique and experimental Off–Off Broadway fare.

  1. 1. Macbeth Without Words

    Who needs all that pesky poetry? Here, Shakespeare plays out with stage fights, dance, and comic-book choreography.

  2. 2. Compression of a Casualty & Fox(y) Friends

    Two satires take aim at CNN and Fox News using actual transcripts from broadcasts, live video, and projected images.

  3. 3. Every Play Ever Written

    Robert Honeywell’s comedic tour of the history of theater, from primitive to present (and beyond).

Pretentious Festival
Through July 1; $10; call 212-352-3101 for tickets and information.
