CANCELLED BY HURRICANE SANDY
Sadly, this wonderful show with its genius cast was CANCELLED due to HURRICANE SANDY two days prior. The venue BOWERY ELECTRIC, like all of the East Village and most of downtown Manhattan,
had no electricity for five days. Rather than rescheduling the show amidst all of the benefits for Sandy's victims citywide, the producers will stage an early 2013 edition with as much of the Halloween cast as possible.
