The 6th Annual 90 Square Arts Festival
Our first original show
Our sixth year saw our first original Mainstage production. The Star and the Fire told the story of two estranged lovers who each make a deal with the devil to get back together. This original musical incorporated a three-course tasting menu from Great Performances and a scotch tasting from The Famous Grouse. In addition, the 90X Cabaret brought the house down, preceded by the 90X FoodFest, which was the most delicious yet. And the visual artists of the 90X Gallery showed their work to great acclaim.
The 5th Annual 90 Square Arts Festival
Dancers and food make their first appearance at the 90X Cabaret.
Our Mainstage production was the Broadway musical Urinetown. In addition to this hilarious show, the 90X Gallery, and the 90X Cabaret, this year saw the birth of the 90X FoodFest. The culinary artists of 90X Arts (all of whom are professional chefs working for Great Performances) gathered to create tasting - sized portions of their own signature dishes. This was combined with an immersive, multi-sensory performance integrating dance and audience vignettes with the delicious food.
The 4th Annual 90 Square Arts Festival
Ever-evolving, we become an Arts Festival
This was the first year we became a full-on Arts Festival. We started the 90X Gallery, where visual artists could strut their stuff, and the 90X Cabaret, featuring some of the best singers you've ever heard. And on the Mainstage, Scapino!
Our 3rd year
Pilgrims of the Night
We branched out into non-musical territory for the first time. Pilgrims of the Night boasted 30 cast members. Plus a Zombie Dance number.
Our 2nd year
Little Shop of Horrors
Our second year! We didn't yet know if our little experiment would become an annual tradition. But this show proved that it would. We used a unique method for staging Audrey II, and had a ball.
Our first year
Into the Woods
Everyone has their"bucket list" roles, and this show is full of them. With just a dream and a lot of drive, we all came together and staged this marvelous show. Little did we know what we would grow into. Read our write-up in the New York Times here.
