Fantastical forests! Evil witches! And an…Imf?
A modern re-imagining of Hansel and Gretel, Ami and Tami tells the story of two siblings longing to leave their overbearing parents and find adventure in the enchanted woods. As the fairy tale unfolds, instrument-wielding actors lead guests through the glittering, magical rooms of the Blue Building.
You’ll join a ragtag band of creatures in the forest. Beware of the Evil Humm, who chases passersby through the woods, and Yaga the witch, who runs a surprisingly sophisticated restaurant. If you’re lucky, you may even get a first-hand look in her cauldron, where she creates her more, well, interesting dishes (piranha, anyone?).
From the team that created the immersive operatic experience The Drumf and the Rhinegold, Ami and Tami is Floating Tower’s first fully immersive production for children and families. American polymath and visual director Dough Fitch (Le Grand Macabre, The New York Philharmonic) directs. Music by Mátti Kovler (Israel Philharmonic, Carnegie Hall, and Tanglewood). Original book and Lyrics by Aya Lavie in a new English translation by Spencer Garfield.
The Boston Globe calls Ami and Tami “A buoyant, tuneful musical fable.”
Please note each show is limited to 50 people. This is a limited-run production in May and June 2017 at the Blue Building on NYC, before moving to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August.
Weekends, May 7 – June 11
Saturdays at 3pm
Sundays at 2pm and 5pm
The Blue Building, 222 East 46th Street, New York City
