Terrible Baby Theater Co. is currently seeking production assistants and volunteers for their premiere productions: “The Nosemaker’s Apprentice” and “The Colonists” at the Brick Theater in April/May.
Terrible Baby is a new super group theater company dedicated to the theatrical endeavours of Nick Jones (Jollyship the Whiz-Bang), Rachel Shukert (Bloody Mary, author: Have You No Shame? and former Culturebot contributor) and director Peter Cook (Sailor Man, now playing at Bleecker St. Theater). In their own right, each of the primary artists has become known for elaborate sophisticated comedy with subversive and quasi historical inclinations, rooted in the traditions of Charles Ludlam, Joe Orton, and Jim Henson.
(PERSONAL NOTE: Enough writing in the third person. Listen. No one has ever become rich doing one of our shows. But no one has ever complained either. Because the work is truly its own reward, and we are up to our necks in rewards right now, so we need your help! Join our company and laugh your ass off while learning about the fundaments of puppetry, stage design, and culturally enriching escapism.)
