BFF Saturday Special Events for the Whole Family:
Sat, Oct 30 Mick E. Jones’ CAT TALES
2:00pm All Ages
“It’s an oracle!…and a miracle of love through the eyes of a reluctant cat lover. If I didn’t know better I would believe these cats – each with their own tail – was channeling through Mick E.” Reader. A profoundly multilayered tale about the supreme spirit which exists in and connects all beings, and all things. Perfect for all ages. Mick E. Jones revitalizes the myth and mystery of the cat by telling tales about some of his feline friends – affectionate, sociable, even psychic, with personalities, behaviors and attitudes that range from cool and aloof, to bright and courageous, lovable and beastly to downright bizarre, all with great dignity, pride, and a lot of irony. Directed by performer/playwright and long-time Playhouse alum Obi Ndefo.
