According to Schuba’s website, the troupe began creating their unique brand of music, film, and theatre “as freshman at the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama in 2008, becoming the first group to win the NYC Fringe Festival’s top honor for a play two years in a row in 2010 and 2011, produced several original plays off-Broadway earning them critic’s picks from The New York Times, Time Out New York, New York Magazine and more, ranking them in the top ten theatrical events of both 2011 and 2012. Their debut indie-folk album, “Bremen”, was featured by American Songwriter and was named #10 album of the year in The Huffington Post’s 2012 Grammy preview.”
The guys will be at Schubas on Oct. 7 and 21 and Nov. 4 and 18. For tickets (21+over) visit www.schubas.com.
