The Theater Project expands Union POP-UP Performance Program

originally published: 04/05/2016

The Theater Project expands Union POP-UP Performance Program(UNION, NJ) -- “Pop-Up” theater -- entertainment in unexpected places – is returning to Unity Bank in Union’s downtown business district, presented by The Theater Project, an award-winning professional company based in Maplewood. The comedy You Make My Frame Shake by New Jersey playwright Luigi Jannuzzi will be presented as a script-in-hand performance Saturday, April 30 at 8:00pm, and Sunday, May 1 at 2:00pm, at Unity Bank’s 952 Stuyvesant Avenue Branch, Union. 

 

Since the play is about the back stories, secret thoughts and hidden desires of the paintings and sculptures in the Metropolitan Museum of Art -– how would YOU like to be stared at all day? -– The Theater Project decided to stage the play in a “pop-up” museum. Cranford artist Theodosia A. G. Tamborlane will exhibit her work in the performance space, available for viewing one hour before and after each performance. Jannuzzi and Tamborlane will both be on hand to chat with patrons. POP-UP THEATER meets POP-UP ART GALLERY.

 

But you gotta eat, right? One of the reasons for bringing Pop-Up Theater to Union’s downtown is to create foot traffic for local business; The Theater Project is setting up a guide to neighborhood restaurants on its website, TheTheaterProject.org, to encourage play-goers to round out their theater/art show experience with a meal or snack. Within walking distance of the performance, patrons can choose from vegetarian, Tapas, Italian, Sushi, Thai, Chinese, African, Portuguese, Brazilian, and Philippine menus, as well as pub grub and pizza. Lighter fare -- coffee, tea, dessert -- is also available at neighborhood bakeries, coffee shops, and cafes.
