In case you have not heard, Barbara Vann, Medicine Show's co-founder (with James Barbosa, 1932-2003), died at her home this past August 26th, after a brief and mercifully painless illness.
There will be a celebration of her life and work, at Medicine Show, 549 West 52nd Street, 3rd Floor, on Monday, October 19th, beginning at 3 p.m. and running into the evening -- all are welcome.
We have been discussing the fate of Medicine Show Theatre, and have decided to go on. One of our first challenges will be to find enough funding, and we have started a Kickstarter campaign to that effect.
If you can, please donate as generously as you can to help Medicine Show keep on bringing the kind of boundary-crossing, surprising, funny, deeply humane work for which we are known.
