The show is broken into three short segments. In the first of the three comedic stories, a great Shakespearean actor must teach a spotlight-stealing little girl in the audience how to behave at a show. In the second story, the audience must listen carefully to keep from being tricked by a zany criminal mastermind named Willy the Fork. In the third and last story, two nerdy scientists competing to find the secrets of space and time enlist the audience to help decide their fate.
Stories – Live and In Person was written by Infinity Co-Producing Artistic Director Alan Ostroff. It was seen by 2,700 children in New York City in the fall of 2010, in a tour presented by Arts for All, Inc. The play shows children the timeless power of live theatre, and engages their imagination with the energy of being in the same room as the actors – live and in person.
