The Amoralists are Erect Again: The Pied Pipers of the Lower East Side

I was thrilled to receive an email from my friend Zachary Lacks letting me me know that The Amoralists have revived their brilliant production of The Pied Pipers of the Lower East Side

I saw this play in August, 2009 and it left quite the impression upon me.   I can still feel the alternating joy and despair of the Bohemian characters, who attempt to maintain their status quo of getting by and living cohesively in a sexually charged and familial environment.  

It was one of the most fearless, audacious, and chaotic performances from all involved that I've ever seen and, for that matter, may ever see.   This play took me to a place I never thought I would go and made see things in a different light, certainly not just in black and white.   Derek Ahonen, playwright and director, has done something very special with this work.

The Pied Pipers of the Lower East Side is playing at 9th Space, ​150 First Avenue @ 9th Street, thru this weekend.  Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling (212) 868-4444.
