Watch graphic novels come to life! The creators of award-winning books will perform the voices of their characters as artwork appears onscreen and pages turn. Audiences will be captivated by real and magical coming-of-age tales, in which characters explore mysterious family secrets and demonstrate how to speak up and claim your place when you don’t feel like you fit in. Join graphic novel pioneers Molly Ostertag (The Witch Boy), Nidhi Chanani (Pashmina), and Jerry Craft (New Kid), with emcee R. Sikoryak (The Unquotable Trump), as they combine visual storytelling and live performance during this innovative afternoon of entertainment.
This program is supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
Space at Town Stages is sponsored in part by Sokoloff Arts.
