Like Pee Wee's Playhouse, but real - The Trachtenburgs
Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players are taking their show on the road in July. The variety show/vaudeville act/sing-along band will travel down the East Coast over the course of three weeks.
That band will stop home in NYC for a few days mid-tour. In that time, they'll be two free performances (or episodes as the case may be) of Rachel Trachtenburg's Homemade World, the youngest member's spin-off project. Both of those will be on July 12th: first at Solar One's Citysol (11:30 AM), then at the Beach at Governors Island (3:00 PM). The Governors Island show is a collaboration with Wakka Wakka Productions, "known for their creative and entertaining puppetry." The program describes the show as "a magical journey of music, reading, puppetry and live performance to find out Where The Wild Things Are."
You can see a few clips of Rachel Trachtenburg's Homemade World the TV Show, which looks amazing, and a preview of Rachel's new band, The Oh My God Girls, with other videos and all tour dates, below...
