As promised, we’ve assembled both new and veteran NYTI performers for LEGACY, coming to The Brick’s Comic Book Theater Festival June 8th at 7PM. Think of it as our version of the superhero team-up. Let’s get to know them better:
Fred Backus is a theater artist and musician in New York City. He’s thrilled to be asked to return for another installment of No, You Tell It!, where he previously appeared in URBAN DWELLERS. He’ll be directing Maggie Cino’s Warm Enough For Swimming this August at the New York International Fringe Festival, and you can catch his band Deacon Bishop Revival when they play out around town, or by visiting www.deaconbishoprevival.com.
