SISTERS FOLLIES Between Two Worlds


An October ghost story commissioned to celebrate the 2015 Abrons’ Playhouse Centennial. Sisters’ Follies: Between Two Worlds celebrates the founders of the Playhouse, Alice and Irene Lewisohn, and stars Downtown legends and Abrons favorites, Joey Arias and Julie Atlas Muz as the sisters and enduring artistic spirits of the theater. This homegrown spooktacular presents the ultimate revival, possessed by the sisters and their legacy of avant-garde performance and dance, way, way downtown, still haunting the playhouse 100 years later.
