THE ANNUAL VILLAGE HALLOWEEN COSTUME BALL, is a 37-year old multilevel theatrical event during which the building's 30,000 sq. ft. is transformed by sculptors, painters and scenic designers into a series of Halloween environments and simultaneous performances of every theatrical kind are held throughout the building and on the street outside. An average of 450 artists, performers, scenic designers and volunteers have an opportunity to showcase their talents in this one night extravaganza. For many of the artists it is their first time working for the Theater alongside the main body of regulars who participate in the 30-40 productions that are done annually indoors. This annual one night event reaches a combined audience of 2,000 from both indoors and outside on the street. TNC was the original producer for the Annual Village Halloween Parade, when it won the Obie Award. Enjoy an Historic Halloween event.
And then there's that basement wall with those murals on it where artists paint for Halloween each year that I found myself visiting again the next day, which is this day, the day after Halloween, to take photos of those Theater for the New City Halloween Costume Ball paintings on that basement wall. And so some of those photos of these Halloween murals for this Halloween year of 2013 find themselves posted above. And every day should be Halloween. We are free to be who we want to be. Have a great Halloween day of the dead day after and more.
