"The Old Man and The Old Moon" opened on 42nd street in Times Square at The New Victory Theater on Sept 26th, 2014, to glowing reviews. The limited run closes on October 13th.
"This is a story of time and tides and quests, the sort of fable on which mythologies and religions are founded ... [PigPen] asks us to appreciate the finer arts of wild storytelling, while speaking to the childish mind in all of us."
"Don't make the mistake of dismissing "The Old Man and The Old Moon" as a kids' show. It's a transcendent theatrical experience for all ages."
"This extraordinarily imaginative, wonderfully written, beautifully produced staging, which includes lively music performed by seven gifted actors, is a rare example of true theater magic."
"I'm crazy about PigPen and soon you will be too. They're a great rock band that also happens to put on delightful theatrical shows. Or they're a great theatrical troupe that also happens to release terrific albums. Take your pick."
"Nothing was expected. Except maybe the unexpected ... If there is one show not to miss this fall, The Old Man and The Old Moon is it."
"The Old Man and The Old Moon is pure magic ... It's Once meets Peter and the Starcatcher in a glorious fusion of music and theatrics."
"The Old Man and The Old Moon is outshining some of the neons on 42nd Street."
