We are having a Fundraiser for the LUNGS Summer Theater Festival 2022 April 18, 2022.
We are raising money through Facebook HERE because Facebook takes care of the donation processing with no fees.
This is A FREE Arts Event. In 1956, Joe Papp began the outdoor theater tradition on the Lower East Side when he introduced “Shakespeare in the Park” in East River Park Amphitheater. From the 1950’s to the present, the Park was the site of frequent free Evening-in-the-Park concerts and plays.
One of the last performances was in 2021, Jody Oberfelder Projects immersive dance and music event called “Amphitheater”.
In June 2022, LUNGS (Loisaida United Neighborhood Gardens) will continue to honor the tradition with the FREE LUNGS Summer Theater Festival, at East Village community gardens.
The theme of the 2022 Festival will be Mother Earth/Nature. Everyone is welcome! We are hoping audiences to enjoy a great experience Free Theater in our community gardens!
