There are no bad seats at a performance of “Buckle My Shoe,” but there sure are some uncomfortable milk crates.
The new musical, mounted by the Theater for the New City, is being performed outdoors in Prospect Park on Aug. 25 — and what it lacks in conventional seating (though they do provide the crates), it makes up for in humor.
Set in modern day New York City, the politically charged show focuses on an unnamed protagonist, a serious journalist struggling in a world of celebrity weeklies and gossipy blogs.
Tired of being pushed around by bullies with deep pockets, our hero joins forces with two AWOL intelligence agents and a Mariachi band on the run from immigration officials in an attempt to overthrow the system.
And this show is on the road, literally. After debuting in the middle of a closed-down street in the East Village earlier this month, it’s now playing avenues, playgrounds and bandshells in the five boroughs through Sept. 16.
“Buckle My Shoe” will be performed at 2 pm on Aug. 25 at the Prospect Park Concert Grove. Tickets are free. For information, call (212) 254-1109 or visit www.theaterforthenew....
