THE POETS' THEATRE, INC. & MICHAEL SEIDEN Presents
By Matthew Spangler and Benjamin Evett
Directed by Rick Lombardo
Featuring Benjamin Evett
is a tour de force solo performance piece inspired by "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner". Arriving in New York after a triumphant run at the Edinburgh Fringe, Albatross combines sophisticated multimedia with a performance that the EdFringe Review called " at times astounding"
, to thrust Coleridge's supernatural sea yarn into the modern moment. Full of privateers, storms, battles, spirits, and yes, penguins, it's a thrilling adventure story that also delves deep into urgent questions about violence, mindfulness, and our impact on the natural world and each other.
